The Financially Empowered Woman
Everything You Really Want to Know About Your MoneyeBook - 2014
Tracy Theemes knows money, and she knows women. As a certified Investment Advisor, Theemes is an expert in wealth management. As a former therapist and counselor, Theemes has deep insight into how thoughts, feelings and beliefs shape her clients' money-related behaviour. In her book The Financially Empowered Woman, Theemes brings these two areas of expertise together in a unique and compelling resource for women who want to gain mastery over their financial lives but need advice and encouragement to do so. Women today feel heavily burdened in their lives. Career pressures, family responsibilities, rising divorce rates, the impossible ideal of the superwoman, and a culture that still assumes that men are better equipped than women to deal with financial matters all contribute to the powerlessness many women feel when it comes to money. Hundreds of Theemes' female clients from across the socioeconomic spectrum confess harbouring feelings such as anxiety, guilt and overwhelm around their own money. In The Financially Empowered Woman, Theemes unpacks the social and emotional roots of the problem and firmly but gently leads readers to greater self-awareness and empowered decision-making. After mastering they why, it's time to move on to the how. Theemes offers a concise and accessible five-step planning guide that every woman can follow to get her financial life on track and keep it there.
