Not enough women are talking about money. The truth is, so many women feel shame and guilt about the choices they are making financially, and it isn't their fault! Men earn 90% of the wealth in the world. Although women are the majority spenders at 85%, we are left to figure out for ourselves how to manage our money following male dominated advice. Every woman is capable of feeling confident about the choices she is making about her money. The problem is that for so many women, money isn't relatable. Experts are talking over your head, and this show is the perfect place for you to improve your confidence and relationship with money. My goal is for women to lead in all areas of their life with clarity that they are making the right choices for their families, their careers, and their futures. With Real Money, we are going to share real stories of women who are tackling their most difficult financial challenges.
