The Perfect Money Conversation

The Perfect Money Conversation Welcome back to another post. I hope that you are doing really well.  In today's message, I am going over a topic I have spoken about in the past but from a different angle. It's useful whether you are in a heterosexual or same gender relationship.  I have ten great questions you can ask and a bonus question too. Have  you ever gone bankrupt in the past and how did this happen? Have  you ever checked your credit score and if so, what has been your highest and lowest scores? How do you plan your financial future? Are you a risk taker when it comes to your  money ? What types of investment plans do you currently  have ? How many credit cards do you  have  and what are the balances on each of them? Do you  have  any outstanding loans including student loans? If you found yourself in a financial pothole, would you consider seeking help from a professional? Have  you ever held a joint bank account with an ex, friend or family and

Economic Violence

Economic Violence I finally misplaced the article I wanted to link in this post. Never mind, I can speak on it from my heart. It's a time of self reflection! So, I'll keep this one very short.  Is your answer to the next question, yes or no ? Are you being preyed on because you are economically disadvantaged? Until next time, Much 💜 Deborah

Maximise Your Settlement During a Legal Separation

Maximise Your Legal Settlement I've been wanting to write about this topic for quite some time. I was waiting to gather more real life examples of the experiences of real people, At this point, I'm going to focus on speaking to women because I want us as women to learn the power in letting go of that anger and frustration which comes with legal separation and divorce. If you are a gentleman reading this, then, I hope you'll be pleased with what I have to say. Please do share you thoughts below if anything I say resonates with you. Thank you. How often have you heard couples who are going through, or have been through a bitter separation talk about both parties agreeing amicably? I know that there are a handful of cases, however, it's quite natural to feel aggrieved whenever a relationship ends - for whatever reason it. Adultery or infidelity probably ranks very high as one of the culprit of adding to the level of rage experienced by one or both parties. H

Can A Man Be a Feminist?

Can A Man Be A Feminist? Hello and good day to you. Welcome to another blog post. Our focus today isn't on any arguments about what feminism is or isn't. Instead, it is about the great lesson I learnt recently from a great friend of mine. We got into a conversation about the issues women have to face in various areas of our lives. Then he said, do you know I am a feminist? My jaw dropped - although he couldn't see my jaw as we were talking over the phone. My response was one of intrigue as I couldn't wait to hear what he had to say. How so is all I could really say. At this point in this post, let me just say that I have never really taken the time to educate myself in what the word feminism really means. I hear so many negative connotations about the word. I often wondered if I was considered a feminist based on the issues that I talk about - who knows.  You see, my friend explained it to me in very simple terms that made so much sense. Here is what he sa

Should Women Invest Differently To Men?

Should Women Invest Differently To Men? Money Literacy Educator As a woman helping and teaching women who have experienced domestic abuse the simple ways to create wealth for them, this topic such an interesting one. It's very easy for me as a single mum to use the excuse that as a woman, I need to invest differently to man. Why? Start Early - if you can From a young age, investment was discussed in my home by my late father. My dad was the only man in our household - as he had 2 daughters.  I invest so that I can create a financially safe future for my children and I. I also invest for the future education of my children as I DO NOT want them to have to borrow money for their education. I also invest as the job market is very risky right now - with there being no job for life. Ultimately, I would like to live off of my investments when the time comes to retire from the hustle and bustle. Financial Adviser or Not I've never actually had a long
