Make Your Money Work for You
Thirty or forty years ago, most women depended on a weekly allowance from their husbands to run the household and care for children. Although today's women share the breadwinning with their husbands or support families on their incomes alone, their money management skills simply haven't kept pace with their earning power. It's time for women to embrace a new paradigm, doing away with the notion that control of finances is a man's job.
Like no other book on personal finance, Money Order offers a new model for managing your money, one that reflects women's constantly changing money needs and helps you develop real financial savvy and resourcefulness. Based on Womankind's grassroots Financial Literacy Project, Money Order covers all the basics, including how to
  • Establish and maintain good credit
  • Save for your children's college education
  • Manage debt
  • Finance car and home purchases
  • Insure yourself and your property
  • Prepare for retirement

But it doesn't stop there. Packed with insider tips from women financial experts, as well as real-life stories, exercises, and useful charts and graphs, Money Order is a comprehensive primer that teaches you to treat your money as your greatest asset -- not as an endless burden.
Once you have your day-to-day financial life on track, this book will provide you with new options to save, spend, and invest your money. Money Order encourages you to share your financial knowledge with other women and to make meaningful investments that will effect real economic change in your life and the lives of others.
