10 Signs of Financial Empowerment

What does financial empowerment look like? There's actually no single correct answer to that question.  In fact, the answer is different for everyone. But we would like to help you begin envisioning what it will look like for you.

Here are some ideas from the women at Directions for Women:

  1. I  learn from my financial mistakes.
  2. I  know I will have enough because I am enough.
  3. I am able to set and make progress toward financial goals.
  4. I can talk about money with those I care about.
  5. I know enough to make good financial decisions.
  6. I know my value in the marketplace and can ask for it.
  7. I understand that taking care of myself financially is just as important as taking care of others.
  8. I spend money in a way that honors my values and responsibilities.
  9. I may choose to delegate – but not abdicate – responsibility for managing my money.
  10. When I have questions or fears about money, I speak up and get the support and answers I need.

  1. It means you’ve thought about questions such as these:

    What is your net worth (assets – liabilities) as of today?

    At what age do you want to retire?

    How much money do you think you need to have in order to retire at that time?

    What’s your dream? Is there anything that you’ve wanted to buy, but you never have had the money? Where would you live, what would you do, what clothes would you wear, what restaurants would you eat at, what places would you go with your family/loved ones, if you had unlimited money?

    What could possibly go wrong to prevent you from achieving this goal?
