"I learned that when it comes to money, no matter how much you love someone, trust someone, keep at least half of everything you make, and invest it." Lauren Hutton, one of the first Supermodels and still working at 76.
What is more feminine than a Dream and a Plan. We head our households making a hundred informed decisions everyday many involving money. Yet, I find a hurdle to women achieving financial independence is getting them to realize money is feminine.
Women have amassed 40% of global wealth yet the majority of us still do not feel in control of our lives. Due to our crazy schedules, often our management of money stops when we receive the paycheck. We outsource it to partners or ignore it to gain back time in our week. That is a delay tactic not a solution.
Why should we take the time to participate in the management of our money?
Money is as important as nutrition and exercise to our well-being. Working at an uninspiring job to pay bills is often a result of money un-management. It will be the same when you are 70 unless you make a change.
Money is not power but it is empowerment. It is a tool to help us achieve the goals we set for ourselves.
Money funds our most precious Asset of all - Time. Time is what we want. Time with friends and children. Time on work that matters. Time exhausting our bodies in sport and getting rest. Time for adventure. You won't get more Time but you can decide how to spend it well.
Money management is not about trying to become rich. It is about becoming fulfilled. We use frugality and the wise use of money to help us stay focused on the things that matter, kinda like blinders on a horse to help it win a race.
Why do we ignore our finances?
Oh yeah, money is stodgy, intimidating, time consuming and of course...boring.
