We sign our names all the time. From consent forms at the dentist’s office to tax forms at work. We even sign waivers and agreements every time we join a new website, or get an email address, or open a Facebook account. Signing our names has become a part of everyday life.
And so often, we don’t read the fine print. Sometimes it feels like – if you actually took time to review all the details – you’d never get anything else done. Because of course, the details are often confusing…especially when you’re signing forms related to money.
And yet, our signatures carry extraordinary power… even if we don’t know what it is we’re signing.
That is especially true when we choose to sign our names on documents related to the financial aspects of marriages and long-term partnerships; especially forms like prenups, postnups, quitclaim deeds, credit and mortgage applications and your taxes!
Your Signature Holds Power. Always Think Before You Sign.
It’s so easy to sign our names without thinking about the long-term consequences of our actions. And yet, the documents you sign – especially those relating to money – can have a major impact on your future.
Too often, women sign away independence, power, and rights, without fully understanding the choice they are making
So, before your sign your name, make sure you understand what your signature means for you – not just today, but for your financial security ten, twenty, and thirty years from now.
