Women feel more confident about money BUT only 28% act on it

Published about 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

I read a report recently with interesting findings about women's financial confidence.

Amidst many statistics showing women's progress and areas where there was still room for improvement, one number stuck out for me:

  • Almost half of the women felt more confident about money, but only 28% felt empowered to take ACTION

Women are smart enough to Google what they want to learn or speak to someone about it.

But what’s stopping them from acting on that knowledge?

The lack of confidence to act on what we know about our finances is a result of years and layers of conditioning about money:

  • Investing is risky, what if we lose it?
  • We need to keep all of it in our savings just in case we need it in an emergency.
  • Someone else knows better about my money than me, better leave it to them to handle it.

This is a classic example of why more information and knowledge isn't going to help if you're not going to take action on it because you're stuck in fear, insecurity, or uncertainty, despite the data.

More information isn’t going to help you take action.

Rewriting your unconscious money stories and beliefs will.

This is what I'll be showing you how to do in my upcoming workshop, 'Financial Confidence for Women' on 4 April 2024.


So you can take action on what you already know to become financially confident and successful.

See you there!

Hello Reader, Ever feel confused like you don't know what to do next in your career? Should you stay in your job or leave? Should you ask for a pay increase or keep quiet?

That's what working with a career coach (like me!) can help you with. But if you're not ready to...

'I think I want to drop out.' My son says to me. He's just started a coding assignment in the military. Out of the 7 selected for this unit, he's the only one without any coding experience. 'I'm slowing everyone down. They're all ahead in the assignments.' When things get hard, it's natural to feel like giving up. So I asked him, 'Is this something you want to learn and do?' 'Yes.' he said. So I said, 'Then you'll have to be prepared it will be hard in the beginning because you're trying to...
