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

With starter recipes curated specifically to each featured wild woman, this feminist recipe book replaces stereotypes with empowering context while also providing a felicitous food fix.

Who Rocked the Boat?

Learn How to Turn Change into Opportunity

“Change is not merely necessary to life—it is life.” –Alvin Toffler

In this FranklinCovey book on responding to change, explore your own experiences with change using a river journey parable as a point-of-reference. Take this voyage and discover timeless principles and timely results from an industry leader who has helped numerous organizations turn disruptive change into individual and collective opportunity.         

Who Rocked the Boat? We all travel along various rivers in life, which means at any moment we can find ourselves navigating their uncertainty—whether a global pandemic, a new boss, a shift in employment, business restructuring, a new role on a team, starting a new course in school, a new business strategy, the birth of a child, divorce, or responding to a setback on a project or personal goal.

Shift happens! Change is going to happen. It’s a fact of life. Understanding your reactions and making good choices could make the difference between capitalizing on an opportunity or resisting and missing an important chance.

The FranklinCovey Change Model. While every change is unique, there is a predictable pattern to change, and understanding this pattern and building the skills to navigate it is often the difference between success and failure. The FranklinCovey Change Model provides the structure necessary to orient, ground, and gain clarity about change. Then, like the ship’s crew in the river journey parable, we can use the model as a map to chart our way forward: making key decisions, adopting new behaviors, and building ideal conditions for innovation. Today, with change coming at us in fast and increasingly disruptive ways, understanding The Change Model is more important than ever.

If books such as Together Is Better by Simon Sinek, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, or Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson have been valuable, you will want to read Who Rocked the Boat?

The Courage to Be Yourself

By

Embrace The Courage to Be Yourself Authentically

This self growth focused motivational book teaches you how to find yourself. In The Courage to Be Yourself, learn to set boundaries, make peace, and find happiness with who you are in a world that projects perfection onto us.

Target harmful patterns. Surrounded by the pressures of society, we often measure ourselves by impossible standards, causing us to doubt ourselves. When this causes negative self-talk, our happiness inevitably suffers. Unhealthy mindsets can also infiltrate our relationships with others. Women can feel the need to be caretakers and sometimes put others' needs above our own. By identifying these patterns, we can set boundaries and target areas that need change—so you can love yourself properly.

Become a loving friend to yourself. While all of us certainly have a calling to love others, it is just as important to give that same love to yourself. It feels good to be yourself, but you must find yourself first. In this emotional strength book, Patton shares impactful stories to show readers how to journey from a place of fear to a life of courageous self-acceptance and real love.

Inside The Courage to Be Yourself, you’ll find:

  • How to find and be yourself through the pressures of today
  • Stories of growth and healing from Patton and other women
  • How to set boundaries, communicate more effectively, and change self-deprecating behaviors

If you liked Courage Is Calling, The Courage to Be Disliked, or How to Be Yourself, you’ll love Courage to Be Yourself.
