Women and Financial Independence 1
For all the ladies in the group, or for those men who have ladies in their lives - do you women know the state of your personal financial health?
I'm reading Kim Kiyosaki's "Rich Woman" and the content is eye-opening. It is directed towards women specifically because our circumstances are different from those of men. Women live longer. Men, generally, are the keepers of the finances and often times the woman knows little to nothing about the state of the finances. When the husband passes away or moves on where does that leave the woman? Much, much poorer and many times in more dire straits.
I recommend reading this book. Yes, the focus is on real estate, but the original intent is clear : women -> learn about and take care of your financial situation.
