The Doubly High Cost of Being Female

seventyninecents

 

Some of my friends and business associates have been out and about talking to women about business development and financial management.  There are two quotes we bring up to gently gain the attention of the women we meet.

The statistic that really grabs the audience is that the average age of widowhood is 56.  Interestingly, most men and women guess numbers in the 70s or 80s.  Big surprise.   Of course many women are choosing to stay single, but this statistic makes everyone take inventory of their relationships.

Then we talk about how women earn 79 cents for every dollar a man earns.  That’s in improvement over the 72 cents I used to talk about when I first started working with women and finances.  Still, something to think about.

Today as I breezed through my daily news reading on my cellphone, I found this really powerful article titled The Doubly High Cost of Being Female.  Here I found more things that I really hadn’t understood, or even thought about.  Can we fix all of it, probably not.  Can we learn and do better?  Absolutely.

M&M-Moms and Money

Mother’s Day celebrations and  Mother’s Day cards  mention appreciation for lots of things, but I have never seen much mention about moms, children, and money.

On this day of reflection about mothers, those still with us and those who have gone on, it is nice to add another dimension to how we see the role of a mother (or mother figure) in our lives.  Moms and Money, the new M&M.

I hope you will enjoy this article about how moms have the greatest impact on finances.   Please click here to learn more!  One more thing to appreciate about those women we call moms.

Women and Money- Limiting Beliefs

I used to think anything related to finances is all about the numbers.   After meeting with hundreds of people concerning their personal finances and investing, it became clear that it’s more about feelings and emotions than it is about the math.

There is a really wonderful article on the blog Frugal Confessions by Amanda Grossman titled Do You Have This Limiting Belief about Money?  If you are feeling a little (or a lot) inadequate when it comes to managing your finances, just click here to read what Amanda has to offer, get some confirmation that you are not alone, and learn that there are some simple ways to start doing better.
