Welcome to Women Money & Power’s Live & Learn…a new blog focused on covering investing news and notes, geared exclusively to Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex women. Our topics will cover such things as maintaining a sense of self while defining money strategies that work for you and your family, which leads to empowerment and control of your destiny. We believe understanding the perfect trifecta of Woman Money & Power (WMP) paves the way for reaping the rewards of financial security, now and throughout our lifetimes.
Women. There is no question that it rocks to be a woman in today’s world. But, if you’re like us here at WMP, it’s hard to kick butt at the office … and keep up with your roots. There’s just so much going on. All the time. On top of seeing to our own emotional and physical wellbeing, we are oftentimes the ones people depend on most –– our friends, our kids, our spouses, our aging parents. Navigating the twists, turns, and detours of everyday life can block our view of the one big red flashing sign we should be paying attention to, the warning sign that says your future is ahead … and you need to be ready for it. For women, understanding (and acting on!) smart money strategies needs to take the fast lane. At WMP, you’ll find information and insight that can help you define the routes to take on your road to financial security––whether you are just starting a career or family or you are well on your way to enjoying retirement.
Money. When it comes to money, it’s not about having it or not having it – you have it. Or at least enough for a computer and an internet connection. What we are all about at WMP is showing you how to get comfortable building wealth using the money you have, no matter how much or how little. There is always something you can do to improve your financial future, starting with a savings plan. Then, we will introduce you to investment strategies designed to make your savings work for you — building upon principal and gaining interest month after month, while you work and play. You work hard everyday. You should demand that your investment money works just as hard.
Power. Power means different things for different people . Often we measure ourselves by material wealth and how we’re faring compared to the folks in the house next door. Power can stem from the title on your business card, your standing in the community, what neighborhood you live in, the emblem attached to the cars parked in your driveway, your credit score, the list goes on and on. To us here at WMP, power means having the financial wherewithal to respond to whatever life throws you – good or bad. We believe that power stems from continually stretching the economic boundaries in your life to achieve greatness as defined by only you.
There you have it. Women. Money. Power. Now, let’s get started tying them all together in the perfect trifecta.
