Financially Empowering Women
About This Show
Claiming financial power is not about hoarding money. It is about understanding how money works and using it to help you live your life, on your terms. We were taught, as women that relationships and responsibility to others are more important than responsibility toward ourselves. At times we have allowed others to think, talk and act on our behalf rather than solving our own problems and taking control of our own lives. You, as a woman, are determined to have a voice and to make responsible financial decisions. I, as a female financial advisor, am resolved to provide responsible financial education through a fiduciary and ethical relationship.
This show is different because we are not going to make you uncomfortable about past decisions, yell at you or bark out financial orders (i.e. DENIED). The purpose of empowerment is to equip you with the knowledge so that you can determine the best solution for you. Together we can combine forces to understand the truth about managing money. We can do it! You can do it! Claim your female financial power today!

Financially Empowering Millennial Women
Sep 2 15
Consistent with my desire to financially empower women, I have been working with other researchers to understand why women are not financially empowered. Why are women not as prepared for retirement? Why are women not as financially literate? Why are women not as confident? One area where we hope to add to the body of knowledge is the area of cohort theory where we are finding very different financial behavior from generation to generation and the empirical results that we have found to-date contradicts what most people would think.According to cohort theory, important historical and societal events affect values, attitudes and ideology of individuals during earlier formative years. The precise delineation of each generation is debatable and depends upon the consequential event defining the personality of that generation, inducing similar life trajectories. Rational females should develop financial skills required for good financial decision making but different female cohorts exhibit varying levels of independence. But not all cohorts approach finances similarly. Today’s guest understands how this younger cohort of women think. After all, she is one. She is an amazing young woman who has taken the time to observe and understand what women her age are thinking and how that influences their behavior, which is usually not in their best interest. Amanda Abella is a Millennial Business Coach who teaches online entrepreneurs (many of them women) how to make money with online marketing. When we first spoke, we were both excited to learn from each other, that what I found in the empirical data was in fact what she was seeing in the millennial world. I’m thrilled to have her on the show.
