I thought this book was for those girls just getting out of college or high school. But the examples throughout the book were from women in their 30s and 40s. I found it very sad that women are "bullied" into financial situations. For example, to combine checking accounts, leaving the woman with no funds of her own. I guess because both of my parents had a financial background and instilled their ethics onto me. A lot of this book is common sense, although I did manage to pick up a few tips. Mostly other books to read and websites to investigate. I thought it was hilarious that the author (Lois Frankel) is a corporate coach because I'm also rereading "Bait and Switch" by Barbara Ehrenreich, where Barbara goes the coaching route to find a "job."
Well-written book about women and money. The two don't always get along. This book explains where and how we make money mistakes and how to avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Knowing your net worth helps you to live your life as richly as you want. Applying for a mortgage? Writing a will? (If you haven't done so yet, do so now! Don't be caught dead without a will!) Creating financial goals. Learning to live wisely and well.
This book tells you much more than just what it is you're doing wrong. It explains how we have all made mistakes where money is concerned, and in an intelligent and warm way, the author shows us how to change and enjoy our rewards without guilt or pain. It outlines the mistakes we've either made, are making or might make in the future and then coaches us as to how to do the right thing instead. An easy to read, very helpful, interesting and completely enjoyable book.
