Personal Bio

Lynn founded the company Women of Substance, LLC. five years ago, so she could open the floodgates of knowledge she acquired over 40 years of advising women in personal finances. After a successful sale of her primary business to her senior financial advisor, she saw a gap in the knowledge base of women her own age. She acknowledged that the men in her clients’ lives had been lovingly (or not!) controlling the family purse strings and once retirement, widowhood, or divorce hit, these women were left with nowhere to turn. She resolved to end that dependence and replace it with knowledge. That is, she is committed to taking on a partner role with her clients in that she takes the time not only to understand the hopes and dreams of her clients, but also to ensure they understand the financial strategies she implements on their behalf. Lynn helps her clients prepare financially — and emotionally — for these significant transitions. As it has from the start, Lynn’s fiduciary, fee-only business model ensures that there are no conflicts of interest. Quite simply, her clients’ needs come first. In fact, clients view Lynn not simply as a financial advisor, but as their partner in life’s financial journey. She is the author of the book, “Power of the Purse, Fear Free Finances for Baby Boomer Women”. She is the co-host of a weekly radio show, The Laurie and Lynn Show, on iTunes and streamed live on Saturday mornings at 9:00 AM on wilknewsradio.com. She is also the host of a podcast with the same name as her book, Power of the Purse, available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, and other popular podcast sites. She has given keynote addresses to various regional non-profit annual events and is the author of a weekly blog at lynnsevans.com. She’s held the CFP® mark of distinction for more than 35 years.
