Unfortunately, many women were raised in the traditional mindset that women do not need to be concerned with financial matters. Consequently, they grow up unaware of how to manage their personal finances, even for mere survival, let alone to financial independence.
Suze Orman has long been the go-to financial adviser for women. I have listened to her many times over the years and have enjoyed her straight-forward and humorous style of delivering very blunt, but needed, messages to her audience. She is not the only expert on the subject and I highly recommend to all readers to do their homework on every piece of advice provided by her and others to determine what works the best for them, their circumstances, and their financial objectives.
You may find that some financial advisers are too aggressive in their approach and that others are not aggressive enough to help you achieve your dreams. The key take-away is to empower yourself to understand HOW the financial world works so that you can apply the techniques that will make you successful – and “success” means different things to different people, so if “success” as the world defines it stresses you out, then find a safer, more conservative path that will make YOU happy in life because, ultimately, that is what TRUE success in life, really is.
Soooo, on the subject of dear Suze, I have provided some helpful links below to get you started. Certainly there are lots of free materials out there, if you’re just starting out, but when you get to a better stage in life, or if you aren’t able to find the perfect solution at no cost, then consider supporting the authors who helped make it possible. You can even gift it to a dear friend or loved one. What better gift could you possible give someone than the peace of personal empowerment?
