Crystal Oculee shares true stories that highlight the complicated relationship between women and their money, as well as the little-known obstacles that play a big role in preventing so many women from achieving financial independence during retirement. Through many years of helping countless women build better financial futures for themselves, Crystal developed a deep understanding of the mistakes that women routinely make when it comes to managing their money.
Whether you’re a doctor, a high-powered attorney, a teacher, a nurse, or a homemaker, many women go through life with the illusion that their future is secure just because they set aside money for retirement and have a financial advisor who they believe has their best interests in mind. Because they incorrectly believe that everything is ok, many women don’t take the time to ask the right questions, don’t insist on the right answers, and are routinely pushed away from being involved in one of the most important dreams of their life… their very own happily-ever-after.
This book uses real life stories to teach women how to avoid some of the biggest mistakes in their relationship with money and how to empower themselves to take charge of their future. Through a carefully selected mix of anecdotes, explanations of financial concepts, and insights into women’s decision making, Crystal’s book makes for a fun read while giving women practical solutions for taking control of their future.
