Women make money, spend money, but I’ve come across a number of women that are not comfortable with money. I talked to a stay at home mom the other day; she isn’t sure what her husband makes, doesn’t know who their household creditors or vendors are, and said she was not interested in knowing. With four kids at home, a mortgage, and him as the sole breadwinner, why not? She said, “She was only interested in knowing how to manage the money she is given to run the household.” My question to her: “If something happens to your husband tomorrow, what will your life look like?” She said, “She had not thought about that.”

Are you a woman that feels uneasy knowing and talking about money? Whether you are single or married it is your business to mind-your-business. If you do not care or pay attention to your money, who else will? One thing I know for sure, no one will take the care and concern for your money like you. You may have a financial advisor or planner, and that is great. However, if there is a loss or gain it is yours, not theirs. If you do not make your rent or mortgage payment, who will it affect – YOU!

It is empowering to be in control of your money, and to know the state of your business, which is your household. Yes, your home is a business, and how you operate it will determine the success or failure of it. If your management style is to not manage, you will operate in chaos, confusion, and much conflict. If you manage with order, then you will experience success, peace, and prosperity.  

Being comfortable and knowledgeable about your financial affairs and taking care of your business will create an empowered and confident woman.
