Top Customer Reviews
Using the 7 Wealthy Habits, that can be used as daily financial mantras; she describes scenarios of different women who knew what they needed to do in order to obtain financial security. She also draws on examples of those women who discovered their own power of the purse by accident and those who simply did not know where to start, but were hungry for financial literacy. Owens takes us step by step on how to gain control and not fear money as some women.
Providing long-term tips on how to pick a reputable and trustworthy broker, Owens shows how everyday household brands are a great way to buy stocks. She also discusses traits women carry such as multi-tasking and nurturing that can be used when choosing to purchase mutual funds and bonds. I also appreciated the fact that although the author has an extensive background, she does not make learning all about financial growth too complicated. She gives free resources that are worthy to use in the future such as the Wall Street Journal and how to form an investment club.
One thing is for certain, the author is quick to point out that yes, we live in an economy that has and is still facing challenges. However, with a little faith, journal writing and good practice of financial education, women can reach their goals of financial growth.
Owens provides a book that is an investment worth every penny from every woman's purse.
