So much of the fear that is present right now is related to money. Everything from the state of the dollar and the global economy, to our personal credit cards and mortgages seems to be in turmoil. An important key to leading your life is leading your finances -- both business and personal. An important key to leadership is feeling empowered. With everything going on, where are you going to feel empowered about money? In the spirit of financial empowerment, we want to be sure you know about Marcia Brixey. She has put together "Money Wise Women Educational Services" and it has amazing tools and programs to empower women to be "financially fit." By gearing her message to women, Marcia has tapped into the challenges and even downright fear that many women feel around financial issues. She has developed a variety of tools, and a forum through her conferences, for women to come together and build their financial skills in a context of mutual respect, trust and safety. It is this context she creates that particularly catches our attention vs. other financial experts out there. We believe this type of context is critical for people to be able to learn, grow and prosper and be the leaders they want to be. Marcia's book "The Money Therapist" offers information and advice for women of every financial level. Topics range from getting out of debt, creating a budget, and spending wisely, to saving money and safeguarding against identity theft. Marcia's approach is very empowering and her positive attitude is both informative and encouraging.
Marcia's blog, and newsletters, also have lots of information and inspiration. If possible, we also recommend attending one of the Money Wise Women Conferences. These conferences are held for both personal and professional finances. There is always a great list of smart, savvy women presenters to provide plenty of inspiration and camaraderie around what can be a very challenging topic. This year the conferences are scheduled in both Washington State and California. (Click here to see the schedule.)
