With all this positive publicity about narrowing wage gaps, women CEOs, and feminine power, it is too easy to overlook the stark reality that we do not actually share the same financial security as our men. While our earning power has increased, we continue to have little or no assets, and while many of us earn an excellent income, we have zero or negative net worth
In addition, some of us have taken our successes to another level. The rise in our spending power has been accompanied by a rise in spending! While we have started to own our magnificence, and realize how fabulous and beautiful we are, some of us have gotten caught up and confused and before we realize it, too many of us are living fabulously fake and beautifully broke lifestyles!
consequences could be devastating!
In this book, we will take a look at the parts played by genetic nature versus environmental nurture in our financial decisions. I have spent many long years counseling women about their financial positions, and I understand the allure of glitz and glamour. I have spoken to groups of young women seeking knowledge about how to apply their newfound spending power. I have seen the lack of education that so many women exhibit when it comes to financial matters, and I have decided it is time to change that!
In this book, you will find many sisters in positions just like yours. From Natalie, the rich young college coed who thinks she deserves it all without trying, to Becky, the middle-aged ex-rock star who has taken a look at her life and discovered she has nothing to build a retirement on. Walk with me through my clients' stories and let's try to answer these tough questions. We are coming into an era of female power and equality, but without education on the topic of finances, all that power will equal nothing in 50 years. We will get to the bottom of where this thinking comes from and learn how to break the cycle of living our lives FABULOUSLY FAKE AND BEAUTIFULLY BROKE.
