I'm on My Own and so Are You: Financial Security for Women
Like a lot of women of my generation, I was raised to be a wife and mother. That worked for me until I realized my husband was a jerk and I divorced him, until my father died and left us only gambling debts, until my mother and sister were killed in a plane crash. So there I was, 40 years old, close to broke, with two children, and no way of making a living. Fortunately, I was a natural as a financial adviser and broker. And as soon as Id solved my own money problems, I turned my attention to helping other women become financially independent. Invest? Isnt that gambling? Not compared to betting everything youve got on a man! Investing isnt rocket science. Once you've mastered some simple ideas --- spend less, save more, watch your credit card debt --- youre likely to find you actually have money to invest. And thats where this book can be your guide to sane, successful investing.
