      I AM READING WOMEN & MONEY BY SUZE ORMAN.  I NEED TO GET A HOLD OF MY FINANCES.  I JUST FINISHED MONEY, A MEMOIR, BY LIZ PERLE.  IT WAS VERY GOOD.

        • I like Suze, but there are some things I agree with her on, and some I don’t.
          I just finished “girl make your money grow“—different author.
          I read what I can about money from top authors, and take what makes the most sense and apply it. I don’t agree with everything they all say, and many will differ a lot.
          The thing that makes the most sense is to pay off all of your bills, and live within your means. That means don’t use credit to get the new toys!

        • I loved the book by Liz Perle. What an eye opener. This is a topic that women don’t talk about enough, I think. Suze Orman is working to change the basic attitude about money and our gender.

          I shared the book with my sister. I don’t think she ever even picked it up. She has no idea what kind of retirement her husband will have and she hasn’t worked in many years. It’s just dumb in my opinion. I want to know every penny, every bit of growth in our portfolio, all of it. I don’t want any surprises when I’m in my 60’s and beyond.

        • I love Suze Orman’s books!  And I watch her show on Saturdays!  All woman should know about their finances!  Not let their husbands control everything without them!  My mom is soooo oblivious!  She thinks just because she pays all the bills that she “knows”—but she doesn’t!  My dad is retired and they have a pension and a 401K - and my mom has NO clue how much is in there or what to do in case something happens to him.  She won’t listen to me either!  And my dad WON‘T put his assets in a trust to protect it!  UGH!!
