The Feminist Financial Handbook

A Modern Woman's Guide to a Wealthy Life (Feminism Book, for Readers of Hood Feminism or The Financial Diet)

By Brynne Conroy

#1 New Release in Volunteer Work and Poverty — Your Guide to Wealth and Success

Live your wealthiest life: Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. The Feminist Financial Handbook provides real motivation and resources for real women who may be struggling—not only those who have already accumulated wealth.

Overcome obstacles: The Feminist Financial Handbook provides actionable tips for women in business for overcoming these obstacles as they try to master money management and their lives. Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities.

Find the answers to your money questions: Learn more about general financial planning principles, like saving or earning a higher income, and delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence.  The Feminist Financial Handbook has stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved personal success.

Learn from the frontrunner of the Femme Frugality blog: Written in the same passionate tone that has made Femme Frugality a two-time nominee for Best Women’s Finance Blog, The Feminist Financial Handbook acknowledges the financial struggles and oppression modern women face while providing actionable steps to live your wealthiest life and achieve personal success.

The Feminist Financial Handbook presents a feminist view on finances relevant to a post-recession economy. This book will walk you through how to:

  • Decide what wealth and success means for you
  • Earn more and negotiate effectively
  • Master manageable money-saving methods

Enjoy Financial Freedom and Discover the Money Management Rules for More Money Now

The author of More Money Now, Nicole Victoria, is a CEO, money coach, and financial literacy advocate. She didn’t grow up with wealth. But she learned the secrets to financial freedom and now specializes in helping 20 and 30 something women effortlessly manage their money and build bank accounts that never stop growing.

Money isn’t everything, but everything takes money. Maybe you have debt (hellooo student loans + credit cards). You feel like you’ll always be playing catch up. Maybe you’ve tried to get help before, tried to budget, followed traditional advice… but it just doesn’t work for you. You’re stressed and overwhelmed, feeling stuck because you don’t know where things went wrong.

The bad news first. The advice that worked for our parents doesn’t work for us. Times have changed. The average person in their 20s has racked up $23,872 in debt, and this number jumps to $62,658 in their 30s. And it gets worse:

  • 79% who budget fail
  • 54% live from paycheck-to-paycheck
  • 80% of Americans are in debt 
  • 40% could not handle a $400 unexpected expense
  • 64% don’t have enough money to retire

Now, the good news. Maybe for you, money has always seemed complicated. Maybe you believe that because you’re not good with math, you couldn’t be good with money. But, to be good with money and build wealth, you don’t need to be good at math, you don’t need to be born rich, and you don’t need a 6 figure salary.

Inside this book learn the money management rules that enabled Nicole to:

  • Pay off her $40,000 of debt in 18 months
  • Pay for her wedding in cash
  • Save her first $100k by 25
  • Buy her dream home
  • Feel financially stable enough for kids
  • Build $500k net worth in her 20s
  • Grow her net worth to over $1M at 30

Courage Doesn't Always Roar

By

Discover Your Inner Courage

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'" —Mary Anne Rademacher

Written initially as part of a longer poem and featured in a gallery show in 1985, these words by Mary Anne Rademacher defining courage have traveled the globe.

Defining courage in a beloved quote. The quote has been featured in ceremonies of all sorts and included in sports and network news broadcasts. Oprah has included it in her magazine and journalists include it in “top ten” lists across many disciplines and categories. And, it is among the most beloved quotes on cards, posters, journals, and gift books.

Bravery comes in many forms. Rademacher insists in her book that we overlook opportunities for growth and personal celebration by shrugging off courageous acts of perseverance with, “I just did what I felt I had to do.” Courage shows itself in many ways from having the courage to heal, to change habits, to learn and begin anew, or even to speak up for yourself.

Defining courage with daily inspirations. This daily companion for women, men, or anyone who wants to change for good, and live a bolder, more courageous life may be the perfect addition to the start of your day or the key to letting go and ending your day right. Featuring an introduction from courage specialist, Candace Doby, Courage Doesn't Always Roar begins as an invitation to recognize all of the ways courage, and the associated risk, show up on ordinary days. 

Inside you’ll find:

  • Keys to finding and defining courage in your everyday life
  • 180 entries covering all aspects of courage, like: resilience, thresholds, choices, grace, and more
  • Mental health-friendly inspirations meant to shape the way you think about courage
