What's keeping you from real financial success?
You're a smart woman. So why do you find financial matters just a little intimidating? Don't worry--we've all been there! We work hard for our money. We're supporting families or sharing the financial obligations of our households. However, we're usually paid less than men and we typically live longer, making our money management needs unique. And that's why it's time for YOU to master the essentials of money: managing it, saving it, investing it, and building a secure financial future for yourself.
Self-made money expert Bola Sokunbi developed Clever Girl Finance to meet those objectives. In this book, she helps you identify your personal needs, challenges, and relationship with debt. She demystifies investing. She coaches you on salary negotiations. And at every step, she shares the experiences of women just like you. It's not a magic bullet. It's a process Bola used to establish her own financial security, and it can work for you too!
