Money Management is a very tricky subject, especially when it comes to Women.
Generally women depend on their spouse or father, brother or boyfriend…They often make mistakes ceding control of money in their hands and then if at all they end up being single due to any reason either divorce or death, they are not always in a good position to take care of finances.
I am a woman entrepreneur & give presentations on women empowerment & money around how to manage money and have personally met many women who are not aware of their own investments.
Even if one is a home maker one should invest.
Here are some of the tips on how should women manage money –
