No one will value you unless you realise your own value and importance

How well you do financially depends on your attitude and beliefs about money and how willing you are to take your financial future into your own hands.

Here are some tips for you:

Be in control: The first and most fundamental thing that anyone needs if they want to get ahead financially is a budget! You need to know how much money is coming in, how much is going out - and where it's going! So out yourself in control of your money by doing a budget.

Give yourself a shot of self esteem!:  Research has shown that men tend to over-rate their abilities - and women tend to underestimate their abilities. It's a self-defeating attitude! Believe in yourself, because having the self-confidence that you can achieve something is a really important step in succeeding.

Know your worth: It's another aspect of those self-esteem issues, that women are less likely to be hard-headed negotiators. What you earn, though, will have an impact on how much you end up with, so keep yourself up to date with current salary levels and make sure that you're being paid what you're worth.

Make the most of what you have!: Make sure that you know where your money is invested and that you're happy with that investment. 80% of people take little or no interest in their money - it can make a big difference to you if you do!

Do some research: No one is expert at anything without doing a bit of research. So do your homework - there are some great finance sites out there.  And there are also seminars and workshops on personal finance topics. Doing some research increases your financial literacy which then decreases the stress that you feel when you have to deal with money issues.

As women women we love to live well, to feel loved and feel valued. I say we need to stop wanting someone else to give us that love and appreciation and start creating that for ourselves.
