Why do women struggle with talking about money?
I don’t think we’ve ever had the opportunity to talk about it. In the home, I feel comfortable with it because my mom and I always had dialogues about it but I don’t think that’s a common thing in the normal household. Maybe now. Also, I think that it’s our own issues of insecurity. I think we women, want to be amazing at every single thing and we know we can be amazing at everything – except for this one thing called finances and we have no idea so we’re fearful of talking about it with our girlfriends. I think it’s so critical that we talk things out with our girlfriends and we’re not talking about this.
Are you using social media to develop and foster old relationships and potentially acquire new ones?
LinkedIn. I do a lot of writing and putting my articles on LinkedIn has been phenomenal. My current clients will forward articles to their friends. We’re still trying to figure out Instagram and Facebook to see if they’re going to help but LinkedIn has really been our bread and butter. It’s where people go to talk about jobs and money.
