Financially Empowering Women

Claiming financial power is not about hoarding money. It is about understanding how money works and using it to help you live your life, on your terms. We were taught, as women that relationships and responsibility to others are more important than responsibility toward ourselves. At times we have allowed others to think, talk and act on our behalf rather than solving our own problems and taking control of our own lives. You, as a woman, are determined to have a voice and to make responsible financial decisions. I, as a female financial advisor, am resolved to provide responsible financial education through a fiduciary and ethical relationship. This show is different because we are not going to make you uncomfortable about past decisions, yell at you or bark out financial orders (i.e. DENIED). The purpose of empowerment is to equip you with the knowledge so that you can determine the best solution for you. Together we can combine forces to understand the truth about managing money. We can do it! You can do it! Claim your female financial power today!

There are many academic and non-academic studies that talk about the power that women have over money.  A recent 2013 study that showed that 40% of households with children under the age of 18 were headed by breadwinning women.  That's four times higher than the number of breadwinning women who headed their households...
