Hey there all.

I decided to get back into reading, so I just picked up Real Money Answers for Every Woman by Patrice Washington. I went on an awesome day-away retreat to EagleWood Resort & Spa (I’ll have to tell you all about it later) and took this book with me.

Business Insider points out that: 11% of rich people read for entertainment, compared to 79% of poor. Hold on, let me switch that around in case you didn’t catch that … 79% of us would rather read an entertaining book or blog post than read what wealthy people read …. Food for thought.

Now I realize this book has been out for a while, but it’s new to me! I definitely recommend that every woman no matter what phase of your life you are in, to read this. I’m not a book blogger, so no in-depth analysis here. This is a very conversational book, like sitting down with a girlfriend who can tell you how it is!


A few takeaways from this book I admire:

  • You must create wealthy habits
  • Create an opportunity fund rather than an emergency fund
  • Change the way you think about money (Insert a Mary Jane affirmation here)
  • Know your worth (value)
  • Plan your success at work (prepare for your career change or salary negotiation)
  • Know what’s stopping you from hustling and how to get around that
  • If you can’t manage your household finances, how can you manage your own business?
  • How to save six months of income – painlessly
  • Managing finances and having those conversations with your significant other

Now if Warren Buffet can do 80% of reading still to this day, can’t you take 10-30% of your day to read?
