Summary

Women have more money - and power - than ever before. So why are we still so conflicted, and unsure, of what or how to deal with it? Today Show financial editor and best-selling author Jean Chatzky provides the much-needed answers in Women with Money.

Ask successful women what they want from their money and they'll tell you: independence, security, choices, a better world, and - oh yes - way less stress, not just for themselves but for their kids, partners, parents, and friends. Through a series of Happy Hour discussions (when money is the topic, wine helps) and one-on-one conversations, Jean Chatzky gets women to open up about the one topic we still never talk about. Then she flips the script and charts a pathway to this joyful, purpose-filled life that today's women not only want but also, finally, have the resources to afford.

Chatzky's candid three-part plan - formed through detailed reporting with the world's top economists, psychiatrists, behaviorists, financial planners, and attorneys, as well as her own two decades of experience in the field - involves helping women understand themselves in relation to money. Listeners will wrap their hands around tactical solutions to get paid what they deserve, become inspired to start businesses, invest for tomorrow, make their money last, and then use that money to foster secure relationships, raise independent and confident children, send those kids to college, care for their aging parents, leave a legacy, and - best of all - bring them joy!

Women with Money

Enjoyed the insight of how women can be so successful in a busy world and still have the proper skills to manage their money.

The only thing I disliked about the book is not knowing how to implement young women with handling money. Such as the steps with getting out of college, buying an apartment or home etc. The author glances over this but not in real lot examples or a process to go through or learn from. This would help me for where I am at now.

The book taught me to be more patient when I want to buy something right away. Instead rest on it for 24 hours in the shopping cart before making the purchase. Also, how to ask and start to talk about helping ur parents for the future and paying it forward towards the old years of life. For example life insurance, a will in place, money, passwords etc.

Highly recommend this book for a good read on Vacation.

10/10 Hands down!

I highly recommend this book for all women and men, despite the leading title. My favorite section was the beginning where Jean started out talking about understanding your unique "money story" and how that affects you and your money habits today. I got so inspired that I created a workshop for my fiance and I to go over our own stories and truly dig deeper into our pasts to understand the "why". It was a scary and vulnerable but a success! And now I will be creating an even larger workshop for the women at my work. Excited to see how it turns out! Thank you, Jean, for this great read, you have truly made me think differently about money.

Excellent and specific content

I loved the specific recommendations for websites to find local resources. I love that it’s promoted me to talk more about investing, tax statements, and how i choose to spend or save my money. Chapter 11 on caring for aging parents is extraordinary! Thank you for writing and publishing this book. I also love when the author reads her own text. Well done!
