Girls Best Friend is Her Money
Author(s): Jane Mack & Jasmine Birtles
Replace worry with knowledge, and dependence with freedom.... the Motley Fool way!' David Gardner, co-founder of The Motley Fool
Calling all women! Would you like to take more control of your life and your money, get out of debt, live a little and invest your savings more cleverly than any Porsche-driving broker? For many women, the need for financial control takes second place to juggling the demands of career and family - and the result means that most of us have neither the time nor the energy to take charge of our finances properly.
But whoever you are, whatever stage you are at, you can take control of your money rather than it controlling you, you can live the good life without getting into debt and you can become your own financial adviser. If you're seeking an independent lifestyle, simply want to improve the family finances, or are worrying about your retirement (or all three), this book is written especially for you. And with the divorce rate running at 40%, its even more important for women to stand on their own two feet. Did you know:
* Women are twice as likely as their partners to give up their careers (and their money) to care for their children?
* On average women earn 80% of men's earnings?
* Less than 40% of women in the UK have any sort of pension provision?
A Girl's Best Friend Is Her Money gives you the power to manage your own finances, from getting out of debt to saving for a fun-filled retirement. Jane Mack and Jasmine Birtles - the Thelma and Louise of personal finance - show you how to take control of your financial future whether you're single, married, divorced, with or without children. In A Girl's Best Friend Is Her Money they shoot from the hip, tell it like it is and have a laugh along the way.
For the first time, here's a book that's aimed at you, written by women who understand a thing or two about busy, hectic lives. You can be financially independent. Jane and Jasmine will show you how.
