I run a women’s book club, Between the Covers, and this month (and probably August) we’re doing Suze Orman’s Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny.
I confess I was financially illiterate until I took Dave Ramsey’s course Financial Peace University. It was a fantastic course that put a lot of financial issues into perspective for us.
I want to read Orman’s book because I think there are issues that deal with money that are specific to women and girls. She looks at our emotional issues and how that translates into how we handle money and whether we use it to take care of ourselves.
She also tells women how to safe-guard themselves in cases where the prince does not show up, or perhaps the prince turned into a jerk and left or whatever. It’s called reality, with a 50% divorce rate in this country. No one likes the reality, but it’s rather silly not to acknowledge that it’s there.
I’m inviting all my readers of The Girl Revolution and BlogFabulous to participate in the book club selection. I think there are tons of issues to discuss. You can order the book right here and it helps me out, or get it from your local bookstore. Either way, I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about women and money.
Let’s face it it’s terribly hard to feel empowered if you’re broke or don’t have enough information to make good financial decisions.
