Money Confidence: Really Smart Financial Moves for Newly Single Women by Kerry Hannon

You can rule your finances, or your finances can rule you—what women need to know.

The loss of a spouse or partner is traumatic and having to deal with money issues can be challenging. To rebuild your life, you need to get a grip on your finances as quickly as possible. That means figuring out your sources of income, devising a budget, and much more.

Making the effort to learn about money will give you the knowledge and confidence to handle your own finances. Financial security is personal freedom. Money Confidence provides practical, can-do advice that covers the gamut from creating a budget that works to investing, where to turn for financial advice and estate planning. In addition, it will include a short tutorial on Kerry’s 3-part financial fitness plan: How to get financially, physically, and spiritually fit. These three steps are at the core of building a rich, independent life.

Money Confidence provides divorced or widowed women with essential information that can transform their lives. This book should be viewed as a survival kit to help you protect the assets you have, pay the bills, organize your income, and help you navigate the grief with positive action steps through difficult transitions.
