The Bridge Between
Women and Financial Professionals

I’m Barbara.

“My mission is to provide resources to women that help them make good financial decisions and to provide financial professionals who can help them plan for a wonderful financial future.”

I’m a consultant, an educator and an entrepreneur. My mission is to provide resources to women that help them make good financial decisions and to provide financial professionals who can help them plan for a wonderful financial future.

I created Purse Strings to help women become financially fearless by learning what they need to know to make the right financial decisions for themselves and their families.

I also want to partner women with the right financial advisor. One that is eager to serve a powerful female market. One that has been trained and vetted by Purse Strings to provide the right products and the unique service women want.

Purse Strings Model

I created the Purse Strings Model which demonstrates how we provide tools and resources for women, online and at their fingertips 24×7. When women are ready and need financial products or services, my goal is to ensure they are working with financial professionals who take the time to focus on their unique needs. That’s a Purse Strings Approved professional.

When financial professionals learn how to serve the female market, they become the go-to referral when women reach out for advice on finances. Most people only have one name for referrals – which could be you! That expert has earned their trust as an indispensable advocate. Becoming a Purse Strings-approved professional does just that.
