Money Wi$e Women Educational Services educates and empowers women of all ages, ethnicities and economic backgrounds on financial literacy. The organization hosts Money Wi$e Women Conferences throughout the Pacific Northwest and Northern California.
The target audience is women because women face financial and economic challenges.
Statistics show that women are out of the workplace an average of 15 years taking care of their families. For every year a woman is out of the workplace, she must work five years to recover lost income, pension coverage and promotional opportunities.
Approximately 50% of marriages end in divorce and women live about seven to ten years longer than men. The average widow is 58 years old. At some point in their lives women will be the sole person responsible for their finances.
Money Wi$e Women Educational Services recognizes this void in the financial arena for women and targets women who typically take care of everyone but themselves. The organization is committed to providing an educational program for women to become financially secure before they have a personal crisis.
I founded Money Wi$e Women six years ago to provide women with a safe place to learn about money. Women who attend Money Wi$e Women Forums tell us that they’ve learned:
• I’m not alone
• That even small steps can be significant and have an impact.
• Finances have been scary to me. I now have the information to make goals and decisions.
• It opened my eyes to know that I can get my finances in order and be confident that I can reach my goals. Be realistic.
• I feel empowered to create positive change in my life and now realize I can’t afford to wait any longer.
• I hadn’t made financial awareness a priority. I had no idea why I should make it a priority. Now I know. And, I fell I’ve been give enough information to continue my education and manage my finances.
• Explained a lot of things in a very easy way that I used to feel was a foreign language.
• I feel empowered to implement plans, however daunting, which will lead to my financial success.
I’ve created the Money Wi$e Women Online Community to provide you with a place to communicate and with other women about money and further your financial education. It contains education, empowerment, advice and support from other women -- both financial and professional experts and women who are asking questions, sharing their challenges, success, tips and tools.
Learning about money is a process. Did you learn a foreign language by taking one class, one test, reading one book? No, and the same thing applies to learning about money. You’re not going to learn everything you need to know by attending one conference, one workshop or reading one book. It’s an ongoing process.
The Money Wise Women Online Community is here to help further your financial education. It’s a safe, secure place to ask questions, share your challenges and successes and learn from other women. You’ll find lots of money related topics written by financial and professional experts.
Enjoy and keep learning. Know that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lau tzu
