Women and Wealth Building
Barbara says that we've been enculturated to believe that women aren't good with money. "We've come to believe that money and finances are overwhelming and mystifying." However, she says that controlling your financial situation can be simple, and we should take time to get smarter.
In addition, Barbara notes that women are generally less confident about making financial decisions than men. "When it comes to financial decisions, I find that I still ask my husband or somebody else." Lastly, financial planners will defer to husbands or male partners when both partners come in for advice.
