3.  Gain Control of Your Finances-Read, Read get a coach if need be.  There are plenty of books out that can help you understand finances..  Rich Dad-Poor Dad, Suze Orman.  Being in control of your finances empowers you! Create your own economy!

4.  Create the Life You Want-Whatever you talk about most is what you attract.  Want to change your life, change your words.  Create a story board of the life you want, write it down, set goals.  You have what you say!

5.  Encourage Other Women-Be excited about the success of another sister, your time will come.  Strengthen each other, when one is hurt we all hurt.  The more you give the more you get in return.
