Master your money, control your destiny
As Kimberlee Davis emphasizes in her podcast, women live longer, earn less, and often have to work harder than men to offset years spent out of the workforce raising children. Additionally, women have suffered disproportionately with regard to loss of jobs in this post-pandemic era. Simply put, Davis says, the money cards are stacked against women, making it more essential than ever for them to make smart financial choices.
The challenges have only increased in recent years, and Davis sets out to reverse some discouraging trends. While women are more educated and successful than ever, they still tend to stand on the sidelines when it comes to their money, according to financial experts. The most recent research shows that women’s financial literacy and confidence are significantly lower compared to data from previous years.
At the same time, pervasive technology has further muddled the world of women’s personal finances. “Tap-and-go” consumerism and targeted digital advertising make it easier than ever to overspend online. Trends like robo technology and online trading have crowded—and confused—the investment landscape. Power to the Purse cuts through the clutter and information overload by showing readers how to make the best financial choices for their own circumstances in these challenging times.
Davis provides an accessible and empowering message to women of all stripes: The better you understand your finances and your own choices regarding money, the more likely you will be to secure your future in both calm and turbulent times.
