Financial Empowerment for Women:

Unlocking Choices and Freedom

Today, women are coming into more money than ever! This is an exciting time, and financial empowerment for women is more important now more than ever. Regardless of age or life stage, it’s essential for women to take control of their financial futures and make smart decisions about their money. 

What is financial empowerment?

So glad you asked. This is what some of our Purse Strings community members said financial empowerment meant to them:

      • Passive income
      • Having emergency savings
      • The ability to take a nice trip every year
      • Knowing my why and being comfortable making choices
      • Freedom!

So, as you can see, financial empowerment is more than being an expert at budgeting, saving, and investing. These are key components, but we are defining financial empowerment as

      • the ability to take control of our financial lives, 
      • making informed decisions about money, 
      • and actively working towards financial goals. 

At Purse Strings we define financial empowerment as the ability to have choices regardless of life stage or circumstances. It’s about having the freedom to make decisions without financial constraints, and to live life on our own terms.

Not a day goes by without us hearing women say they are stuck! They are stuck in a job they hate, in an unhealthy relationship, in a bad living situation, in a dead-end career, and the list goes on and on.

So, how do we become financially empowered?

So, what does it take to get unstuck? We believe it’s financial empowerment. It’s money of her own she can use to move out, move on, or move up—just to have the freedom of choice.

We agree with our community members. It’s about having investments that make money while you sleep, whether that’s in the stock market, real estate, high-yield savings accounts, or any other investment that works on your behalf.

It’s knowing you have that stash of cash for an emergency. It gives you choices to make a change, cover that unexpected bill, or jump on that plane when someone needs you.

And what about what you want? Is it a nice trip? An upgrade in your auto? A new capsule wardrobe? The latest technology? Financial empowerment is knowing you have a plan in place to afford any or all of the things that bring you joy!

It is about knowing your why. Why do you work so hard? Why do you save? What’s important to you and your value system when spending your hard-earned money?

And, Freedom! Yes! 

What’s the first step to financial empowerment?

Financial empowerment goes beyond just securing the basics. It’s about envisioning the life you desire and making a plan to turn that vision into reality. By setting clear financial goals and mapping out a roadmap to achieve them, you can propel yourself towards the lifestyle you desire. It’s about taking the reins of your financial future and steering it towards success.
