Money IS for Women: 3 Wild Truths and 2 Worn Out Fairy Tales

You’re interested in taking control of your money, but you find yourself in situations like:

  • Sitting quietly while the men talk about money (maybe even yours), worried you’ll sound silly if you speak up
  • Watching the news and wishing you knew more, but the whole financial world feels so complex and intimidating
  • Not wanting to become one of those women who gets taken for all her savings

You’re good at what you do (hobbies, career, and running your busy life), but feeling in control of your financial life feels so out of reach and overwhelming.

Yet letting the men have all the control AND giving up your goals and financial ambitions doesn’t feel right to you either.

And you definitely don’t want to retire years from now, look back and think, “If only I had taken hold of my financial strategy back then, I wouldn’t be clipping coupons and waiting for my check each month.”

Does it feel like the financial industry ignores your concerns, without even knowing what they are? You’re not alone.

The good news is it’s not nearly as complicated as it may seem. You CAN take control without your money feeling frustrating and out of reach.

Certain people in the money management industry benefit from making finances look too complicated for anyone who isn’t “numbers-oriented.” They’re the ones who just want you to hand your money over to them and let them do what they want.

Fortunately, that’s not how money management has to work. And it’s increasingly important, especially for women, that it doesn’t work that way.

You need to know how to handle your finances yourself. No matter whether you’re currently single, married, divorced, or widowed. It’s a critical part of modern life. If there’s someone else in your household who deals with the money now, what happens when they’re no longer in the picture or become incapacitated?

Maybe you’ve recently come into money, through an inheritance or divorce proceedings, and you want to make sure it lasts. You might be wondering how you can create a savings plan so you have a solid nest egg when it’s time to retire.

No one’s born knowing how to handle their cash and everyone who seems to know what they’re doing have had to learn it. And so can you.

Modern culture might still be holding onto fairy tales about who can and who can’t handle money, but you don’t have to. Start building your money muscles instead.

This simple myth-busting guide is written for women just like you who are ready to take control of their money and find out how they can best put together a strategy that works for them. The basics of money management are simple and finite. This guide will help you set aside all the red herrings so you can discover your own path to building wealth.
