Member Spotlight: Jeannette Bajalia of Woman’s Worth
As Founder and President of Woman’s Worth®, Jeannette Bajalia brings more than 40 years of experience in the insurance and financial services industries to her work. Her passion for understanding the issues facing women and the aging population led her to start Woman’s Worth®, a financial services firm specializing in the unique life and financial needs of women as they navigate through their lives, up to and through retirement. With Woman’s Worth®, Jeannette specializes in ensuring individuals have a retirement plan that allows them to be more emotionally, medically, and financially secure.
Jeannette says in her first career she experienced firsthand the lack of expertise in the financial services industry that address issues relevant to women. “We have an entire financial services industry that is not responsive to the needs of women and are not considering all the components of life and income planning such as healthcare and the impact of being a caregiver,” Bajalia explained. “When I saw what happened to their assets and the lack of lifetime income plans, even though they are living significantly longer than men, I realized the need for Woman’s Worth®.”
Jeannette ensures those she serves are treated with respect and dignity by creating integrated retirement lifestyle plans that enables them to achieve their retirement goals and dreams. She is the author of three books including the newly released Planning a Purposeful Life – Secrets of Longevity. She has a weekly radio show and can be heard nationally through Woman’s Worth® website. She is the co-founder of the Growing Bolder Financial Institute Powered by Woman’s Worth® and is featured in the Growing Bolder magazine on regular basis.
After a successful start for Woman’s Worth® in Northeast Florida, Jeannette expanded her business into Central Florida in 2015 with the opening of offices in Winter Park. Jeannette is in the process of purchasing a home in Lake Nona and is a new member of the Lake Nona Regional Chamber of Commerce.
