word "investment" gives me cramps. Fortunately,
*Prince Charming Isn't Coming* is the perfect
panacea for women who suffer from financial
phobia and monetary pain.
Barbara Stanny's book is worth reading! Her
advice is grounded in experience, which makes
it valuable. She shares how her own fiscal
disaster led to her financial self-education.
Now she is educating others.
Financial wisdom is an essential goal for all
women, insists Stanny. She identifies "The
Seven Realizations of Financial Enlightenment,"
priceless insights that serve as the basis for
her motivational money guide. The book
includes sound investment advice, great
resources and fundamental reasons for why
we should take charge of our financial situation.
Before reading *Prince Charming Isn't Coming,*
the only stock market I shopped was a local
grocery store. Halfway through the book, I
was perusing Wall Street Journals, browsing
the web for investment sites, and correctly
distinguishing between Peter and David Lynch.
"When a woman...makes financial decisions
based on who she is, not on what she should
do, and when she acts firmly and confidently
on those decisions, then she becomes a very
powerful woman," Stanny writes.
Power,eh? I like that.
*Prince Charming Isn't Coming* is more than a
financial fairytale, but it has a happy ending.
Barbara's most valuable degree is the one that she got from her gilded life and then being forced into the University of Hard Knocks. She is forthright and direct in her writing approach and shows how anyone can suffer from ignorance and benefit by finding out about things that directly affect them-- and to never trust lawyer ex husbands!
I am so thankful that I bought this wonderful book and for her exposing the emotional side that I wasn't aware that I was dealing with in confronting monetary issues. Thank you, thank you Ms Stanny!
