I have made lots of mistakes with money over the years. I’ve maxed out more than one credit card, taken out a loan to buy a sports car I couldn’t afford and taken expensive holidays when I should have been saving and investing.
But you can’t change the past, you can only focus on the future, and these mistakes have helped me to learn about money.
I want to share my experiences and start a discussion about women and money.
As women, we have additional challenges when it comes to money.
We live longer.
We earn less.
We are more likely to take time out of paid work to care for children or parents.
This means we are less likely to be financially secure.
I want Her Money Matters to be a resource you to learn more about how to manage your money so you can live the life you want.
