A comprehensive, practical guide to help women who are just starting out in their careers, or who have been faced with managing finances after being in a relationship so that they can make the most of what they earn, and plan a long-term strategy for a secure, independent financial future.
This book challenges the stereotype that women aren’t good with money and offers advice on managing finances, investment, savings, budgets and mortgages, with case studies, exercises, worksheets and quizzes tailored specifically for women.
Susan Edmunds is a senior business journalist who specialises in personal finance issues, writing both long-form and daily news coverage. She started her career as the editor of a university magazine before moving into radio, and finally online news. She enthusiastically ignored all maths classes through secondary school but has since realised that those dreaded numbers make a huge impact on many people’s lives and has developed a close relationship with her calculator.
She is driven by a desire to boost financial literacy and to make as many people as possible – particularly women – realise that it’s not as hard or intimidating as some people might wish it to appear.
She lives with her two small children and accountant husband.
