Nice Girls Don't Get Rich: 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money (A NICE GIRLS Book)

 
9780446694728: Nice Girls Don't Get Rich: 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money (A NICE GIRLS Book)

Borrowing on your credit cards? Saving instead of investing? Caring for others financially and ignoring your own needs? The things you learned as a girl may be preventing you from becoming financially independent and following your own dreams. Now bestselling author Lois Frankel tackles the outdated concepts that keep you from having the wealth you deserve, and she offers tried-and-true coaching tips to help you take control of your money and your life. Discover all the "nice girl" behaviors-and how to overcome them today!


  • Mistake #4: Not playing to win. Being polite, quiet, and fair to a fault is playing the financial game "like a girl."
  • Mistake #10: Choosing to remain financially illiterate. Knowledge is power. Learn to manage your major purchases, investments, and banking.
  • Mistake #20: Spending as an emotional crutch. Understand your emotions; don't make purchases just to lift your spirits.
  • Mistake #45: Saving instead of investing. Fear can keep your funds in low-interest accounts. Get educated-and get wealthy.

Get the financial savvy you need to change negative behaviors, make smart money choices, and embrace the life you want.

"Vivid, no-nonsense...I love this book." -Anne Fisher, "Workplace" columnist, Fortune magazine

"Good counsel...user-friendly worksheets...invigorating. This is one of the most important contributions to the personal finance literature since Suze Orman. You go, girl!" -Kirkus Reviews

"A fresh look at how women think about money...deals with the real reasons women have so much difficulty with their finances. I wish [I had] it before I made so many of the mistakes she discusses." -Barbara Stanny, author of Prince Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money and Secrets of Six-Figure Women

About the Author:

Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., is President of Corporate Coaching International. Frankel is the author of See Jane Lead, as well as national bestsellers Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office and Nice Girls Don't Get Rich.

From Booklist:

In the end, it is practical advice (words of tactical wisdom, that is) that gets us moving, motivated, and changing. Psychologist Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office (2004), recognizes that fact by focusing on 75 "female" money mistakes--and how to correct them. For sure, there are a handful of different actions--getting in the money game, taking charge, spending wisely, learning money basics, saving and investing for the future, managing financial work potential, and playing it smart--that are then segmented into errors, no matter what the root causes. "Taking charge," for instance, admonishes those who don't trust their intuition and who let a deadbeat dad skirt his responsibilities, among others. Each reprimand, though, is accompanied by at least two coaching "how to overcome" tips and enlivened with client stories and personal anecdotes. Here, at last, is the commonsense retort to that old wives' tale that it's just as easy to marry a rich man as a poor one. Barbara Jacobs

Book Description Time Warner Trade Publishing, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In NICE GIRLS DON T GET RICH, Dr. Frankel offers women financial and investment advice for succeeding in life. Although women may not know it, certain behaviors and habits that they learned when they were girls are now preventing them from attaining financial fulfillment, such as: depending on men for financial advice and/or support, mistaking negotiation for confrontation, fear of math and numbers, spending indiscriminately, playing it safe and operating on financial autopilot. But unlike the many books written by financial professionals, this book isn t just about financial planning --it s about financial thinking. As a psychologist and successful business woman, Frankel examines the myths and messages women learn over time that prevent them from reaping the same financial rewards as men. Based on hundreds of interviews with ordinary women and financial experts, NICE GIRLS DON T GET RICH points out the most common financial mistakes women make and recommends actions to achieve a life free from financial angst.
