Prince Charming Isn't Coming : How Women Get Smart about Money
"Prince Charming Isn't Coming" opens with the author's own story. Daughter of one of the founders of H&R Block, she grew up relying on her father, then her husband, to manage her money. But a devastating financial crisis became a dramatic wake-up call. She knew she had to take charge. But how? Her own journey to financial enlightening is inspiring. She began by interviewing financially successful women from diverse backgrounds. As a result of her research, she discovered a surprising series of insights that smart women shared, insights that enabled them to go from feeling stupid to becoming smart about money. These insights, which she calls The Seven Realizations of Financial Enlightenment, form the core of her financial journey and are at the heart of this book. "Prince Charming Isn't Coming" is not your typical financial fare. In this heartfelt and informative book, the author weaves together practical advice, inspiring anecdotes, and her own poignant experiences, along with savvy, practical checklists of steps to help you begin your own journey immediately.
