My favorite book of quotes about women and money is called The Financially Confident Woman, 9 Habits That Build Your Financial Security, by Mary Hunt. This is a little book, it is probably 4″x6″ in size with about 120 or so quotes. This version is no longer in print. I guard my remaining copy like the treasure it is.
My Financial Freedom Party for Women, A Little Book about Money for Women, includes some of the quotes from Ms. Hunt’s book. When leading Financial Freedom Parties for Women, I learned that a few lines in a quote could be an effective way to interest women in financial management concepts. The quotes are fun and allow us to be introspective and serve as the starting point for meaningful conversations about money.
So here, is one of my favorites.Just like diets, budgets don’t work. The successful alternative to a budget is a plan, a blueprint for your financial future. I love the concept of a plan. With plans cities are built, battles are won, and chaos is turned to order.
