My goal is to help Baby Boomer women achieve a life of financial ease and literacy. - Lynn S. Evans, CFP®

Fee-only financial planning firm committed to helping independent women in the professions, entrepreneurs, and business leaders

Lynn S. Evans is a highly regarded Scranton, PA fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional, speaker, author, radio show host and media source specializing in helping Baby Boomer women understand their worth, own their wealth and manage their money so that they can lead happy lives.  Her audience walks in feeling “clueless” (their word) about money but leaves feeling hopeful and empowered to take responsibility for their financial security.

Lynn S. Evans, CFP® is a national leader in the Financial Planning industry and has a strong record of accomplishment as CEO of successful financial planning and wealth advisory companies, including Women of Substance. She has developed several groundbreaking presentations on the relationship between women and money. Her presentations encourage the participants to look into their past for clues on what they were taught about money and how that colors how they relate to money as adult women, how to break those bonds, and have a happy, positive relationship with money. She is also a civic and community leader.  

We’re used to deferring responsibility for our money to a male figure in our lives – husbands, fathers, or someone else. Then we’re often disappointed when we realize it’s too late to reverse what was done in good faith.

We founded Women of Substance to solve this problem by exclusively serving the needs of women who want to ensure their financial future is every bit as secure as the life they’re accustomed to living. Our clients have lives as mothers, wives, and daughters as well as careers atop the medical field. Each of these important roles requires a well-crafted plan for the next stages of life. By asking the right questions, and through proper guidance, we create customized action plans for our clients so life’s challenges can be addressed with confidence.

As a client of Women of Substance, you become a member in our community of independent women who share common concerns, such as:

  • Will I have enough money for retirement, or, will I end up a bag lady?
  • If I lose my job, should I use up my 401(k) until I get a new job?
  • What can I do when a family member tells me they’ll “handle” my finances and I don’t think they know what they’re doing?
  • How can I manage if Mom needs to come live with me?
  • How would I survive if I had to go through a divorce?

  • Our Power of the Purse Planning Process™
  • Detailed Investment Journal that maps your financials goals with a plan to attain them
