Women today are achieving more in the fields of business, science, and education today than at any other time in history. We are not, however, being paid what we deserve. Becoming wealthy is dependent of you being in control or at least aiding in the control of your finances. You should always know where you money is, where it is going, and if it could do better somewhere else. It’s about being involved in your life.
To be in control, women must make time for learning about their money. Designate time each week or month, even, to sit down by yourself or with your spouse and workout your budget, stocks, and bonds. You need to be fluent in the language of wealth, and the only way you can become fluent in any language is to spend a lot of time learning it. Make it a priority in your life.
Hubby and I meet every Saturday morning, just about cartoon time, to discuss our “State of the Finances” report we print out at the end of the week. We meet once a month, usually on the 3rd, to discuss the state of our stock, or sometimes the lack there of. We like to curl up on the bed with cups of coffee, paperwork, laptop, and the plate of cinnamon rolls between us. It’s not fancy, but it gets us talking about where we are and where we are going. It keeps us on the path, keeps us focused.
How do you take time out learn more about your finances?
If you don’t, what can you do to make it easier? What can you sacrifice?
