Barbara Stanny, author of Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money
In a society where reality shows are the norm and people use social media to tweet about everything from health issues to what they’re eating for dinner, why is money still considered a “taboo” topic for discussion?
A recent Wells Fargo survey identified money as “the most challenging topic” to talk about. Furthermore, women were ranked as having the most difficulty talking about money. Why do women dislike talking about money? According to a Fidelity Investments study, less than half of the women surveyed said they feel confident when discussing finances. The bottom line is this – women don’t know HOW to talk about money.
Let’s Talk About Money: The Girlfriends' Guide to Protecting Her Assets is the first book to show women how to talk about money and why these discussions are important. Sure, there are lots of financial books geared toward women, but these “how to” books offer women guidance on getting out of debt and teach them how to save money. Let’s Talk About Money is very different because it’s not a book about budgets. Instead, it provides women with the insight and information they need to feel confident and empowered to enter financial discussions with everyone from partners to employers to parents.
Let’s Talk About Money highlights the five most important money discussions a woman should participate in: relationships, work, children, parents, and retirement. Each chapter provides real-life examples, financial questions to ask, additional advice from a contributing expert, and a wrap-up discussion.
This fun and user-friendly book will not only teach you how to speak up about money and the questions you HAVE to ask, but it will make you laugh and want to keep reading.
