It makes me laugh when I think about the ways people responded to the idea of DailyWorth, a media company that empowers women around money, back when we launched in 2009.
A former colleague on the West Coast responded: “My wife likes money. She loves to spend my money.”
A businessman I talked to on a train said, “You’re educating women around money? Why? On a certain level, don’t women just want to be taken care of?”
“Actually, no,” I said. “I like being in charge of my own life, thanks.” And now I know I am not the only one who thinks like this.
You’re reading DailyWorth because you’re engaged with your money, and you’re ready for more.
In 2013, DailyWorth is growing up and so is our conversation around money. We’re getting smarter and more sophisticated. This year, we’re pouring resources into questions like:
- What kind of life do you dream about, and how can we help you fund it?
- How can we organize our finances so that we’re clear on what we have and what we need? (check out Money Clarity)
- Why is this country in a retirement crisis and how can DailyWorth women get ahead of the curve?
- What does it really mean to invest—and invest in line with your personal values?
We are going to get to the bottom of these questions and help you navigate your financial future.
Happy Birthday, girl. You’re growing up. Mama is proud.
