Discover all the “nice girl” behaviors-and how to overcome them today!
Mistake #4: Not playing to win. Being polite, quiet, and fair to a fault is playing the financial game “like a girl.”
Mistake #10: Choosing to remain financially illiterate. Knowledge is power. Learn to manage your major purchases, investments, and banking.
Mistake #20: Spending as an emotional crutch. Understand your emotions; don’t make purchases just to lift your spirits.
Mistake #45: Saving instead of investing. Fear can keep your funds in low-interest accounts. Get educated-and get wealthy.
Get the financial savvy you need to change negative behaviors, make smart money choices, and embrace the life you want.
