Overview

Turning Smart Girls Golden

Because your finances are your finances, It's Your Money, Honey encourages women of all ages to take a greater interest—and play a greater role—in those financial issues that affect their everyday lives and financial futures. Conversational, irreverent, and intelligent, this guide to wealth creation, wealth management, and financial protection provides the advice that smart women today need to know to take charge of their finances and family legacies.

Organized by the events that shape our financial and emotional lives—including marriage, raising children, divorce, and retirement—It's Your Money, Honey is packed with expert information in the no-nonsense style of a girlfriend who's got her financial stars aligned and is happy to share her secrets.

Money Honey...

understands that women are looking for a fresh approach to finance, one that will act as a catalyst for change in their busy lives;

believes that the basics of personal finance and investing are not gender specific, though effective ways to communicate these principles definitely are;

is accessible, designed to be read whenever you find yourself with a spare moment, providing important information in bite-sized chunks;

will empower you to prepare for major life events with the help of real-life stories, helpful checklists, and easy-to-apply Golden Rules.

Born of the idea that too many smart women ignore their finances, sweep them under the rug, or allow them to be dictated by others, It's Your Money, Honey makes personal finance engaging, compelling, and relevant for women. It's everything you need to know about money—but were just too darn busy to ask!
