Review

Women's Worth is a great resource for women who aren't sure if they're making the most of what they have financially. As an experienced and respected financial planner, Eleanor speaks to women on their own terms, taking their unique issues seriously, and helping them gain much needed confidence around money. --Olivia Mellan, Co-author, Money Shy to Money Sure: A Woman's Road Map to Financial Well-Being<br /><br />Eleanor combines two areas that can change the fiscal well-being of America and America's families: women becoming financially competent, and creating women's circle gatherings as a way to talk, learn, and share about money. Women's Worth stands out because of Eleanor's passion about women's financial well-being, her empathy, and her professional mastery of financial planning. The journey to financial maturity is a worthy path and this book will serve as a compassionate guide, inspiration, and map. --Elizabeth Jetton, CFP® / Partner, RTD Financial Advisors / Past President, The Financial Planning Association

About the Author

The only woman partner in a four-partner firm, Eleanor Blayney, CFP®, draws upon her female intuition, communication strengths, and relationship skills to serve hundreds of individuals around the country with their wealth management. She currently serves as Consumer Advocate for the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards and owns Directions, LLC, a financial advisory service for women.

Well-known as a conference speaker and spokesperson to the press, Eleanor has played a pioneering role in building and shaping the financial planning profession. She has taught for the College of Financial Planning and has helped develop practice standards and ethical requirements for CFP® professionals in the United States and worldwide.

More About the Author

Women and money are subjects that have always fascinated Eleanor Blayney, author of "Women's Worth: Finding Your Financial Confidence." As the youngest of four daughters, and a graduate of two all women colleges - Mount Holyoke College and Girton College, Cambridge University in the UK - Eleanor has had plenty of opportunities to observe the ways and wisdom of women.

When she earned her MBA from the University of Chicago and launched her career in the world of personal finance as a Certified Financial PlannerTM, she kept her female perspective in this typically male-dominated field. Having worked with hundreds of women clients for more than two decades, Eleanor is convinced that women think and talk about money very differently from men, and face unique financial issues, such as living alone, moving in and out of the workplace, and being the primary caretakers of children and the elderly. She addresses and celebrates these differences in "Women's Worth," offering financial advice to women that is simple, but not simple-minded.

Eleanor also serves as the Consumer Advocate for the CFP Board of Standards, the organization that certifies and supervises CFP professionals. In this capacity, Eleanor frequently appears in printed and broadcast media, educating consumers about the importance of the financial planning process and how to find qualified, competent financial professionals.

Eleanor is currently President of Direction$ LLC, a financial advisory service for women...because women ask for directions.

For those who have ever observed little boys and girls at play, it will come as no surprise when Eleanor Blayney focuses on the ways men and women are wired differently. But I had an "A-ha" moment when I read about how those differences have resulted in a system that is not preparing women for the most likely scenario. Between a woman's longer life expectancy and high divorce rates, Blayney says, "You should think about your financial affairs as if you will be on your own at some point in your life." I found her financial planning recommendations to be supportive of marriage (not advocating financial tactics that might cause dissention) while reminding readers of the facts: women cannot afford to bury their heads in the sand.

This is one of those rare financial books that feels more like a conversation. As I was reading, I kept thinking of friends who need to learn from Blayney and would enjoy her humorous - but wise - approach. These friends represent a wide range of life situations: single, married, spenders, savers, social conservatives, political liberals, investors, and mattress stuffers. Blayney's uplifting teaching applies to each of them. Instead of telling readers what they should do, she encourages them to do what they can by denoting which steps are necessary and challenging women to take charge. Women's Worth is a great textbook in financial planning because Blayney's experiences as a Certified Financial Planner(tm) make her teaching both engaging and relevant.

I've been a member of two book clubs for ever so long--and what I learn in most meetings has little to do with the book we have chosen to discuss. Talking about a book leads us to talk about our lives and to learn from each other. Eleanor Blayney's book is just like having Eleanor present...we learn from her as she shares her life story. That makes this the most interesting financial book for women that I have ever come across! I think it probably would be a GREAT book for book clubs! But anyone reading this will enjoy it and, coincidentally, learn a great deal about how she can make her own life more secure.

A great introduction to personal finance, and a wonderful guide to the unique issues women in their financial lives. It would be a wonderful gift for birthdays and even weddings.

As a Certified Financial Planner, my professional opinion is that this book addresses an audience often misunderstood or patronized by the majority-male financial planning community. As a husband and father, my personal opinion is that I want my wife and daughter to learn what Eleanor Blayney is teaching in these pages. I've raised my daughter to never accept less because she is female, and Women's Worth helps reinforce that message.

While there have been many books written to help women with their investing and financial needs, not one of them comes close to cutting through the B.S. and saying it like it really is for us girls. I've been in the investment advisory business for 20 years and always knew there was a better way to work with women, but until recently, have not had the time or clear thinking to focus on how to articulate it. All I do know is that, for years, I sat in client meeting after client meeting with the "big guys" and the woman/wife would listen to my male counterpart (yes, and usually my senior, too, frustrating as it always was) with a glassy look in their eyes, as they try to understand words like alpha, beta, standard deviation and diversification. We ARE different, and Eleanor articulates this better way as well as anyone could today and I'm so glad it's been done. There is more work to do for us women on this topic, but this book gives us a HUGE head start. The cat is finally out of the bag, and I'm quite sure women investors and advisors will get a ton out of this book. I plan to give it to all of my clients as a gift, too.
