I was doing some research today for a workshop that I’m giving next month and I was pleased to see that in spite of the economy, women seem to be faring better than ever, financially speaking.

Here’s the good news:

According to the Center for Women’s Business Research:

  • As women, we represent 52 percent of the population.

  • We currently control $14 trillion dollars in assets.

  • We own over 10 million (women-owned) businesses in the U.S.

  • We are starting new businesses at twice the rate of men.

  • We own more than 47% of the U.S. publicly traded stocks.

  • We will eventually acquire about 85% of the $12 trillion dollars of  private wealth in the U.S.

We are living in a new era of financial uncertainty — no one has all
the answers, all the time. Our mothers and grandmothers before us were inclined to simply leave the “money stuff” to the men. As women in
the world today, we can no longer afford to do this.

Because the truth is that we continue to outlive our male counterparts by many years and end up with the ultimate responsibility of managing this wealth eventually anyway!

So, isn’t it better that we become good wealth stewards now?

Come on ladies! Isn’t it time we finally conquered our self-limiting money patterns and beliefs?

If you happen to be in Northern California on March 9th, join me in my “Women & Money” Workshop and be prepared to overcome your financial fears! Hope to see you there!

Peace and Blessings!
