Defining Wealth for Women
Dr. Bonnie Koo
From the outside, you have it all: the advanced degree and fulfilling career, the loving family and nice home. But inside, it’s a different story. Student loans and credit card debt still follow you around, and living paycheck to paycheck feels like you’ve missed an important memo only your financially free counterparts received.
You’re relying on the next promotion and big raise to feel better about your finances, but what if making more money isn’t the solution you need? What if you could have all the money you want with a few simple adjustments?
Changing your financial status—like many things in life—is mind over matter: The way you think about money impacts the amount of money you have.
In Defining Wealth for Women, Bonnie Koo, MD, shows you why everything you’ve ever learned about money is probably wrong. She reveals the common misconceptions and limiting beliefs that many professional women have when it comes to money, helping you see what’s possible when you break through the self-imposed ceiling. Even if you’ve never struggled with finances, this book helps you take your financial status to the next level and make your money work for you.
Press & Praise
Defining Wealth for Women marries brain science and the sordid history of women and money to empower women with the tools they need to create wealth.
Many financial experts view money as if it's a math problem with an easy formula, setting women up for frustration when the formula doesn't work. Dr. Koo takes us for a non-jargon stroll through the brain's architecture and natural instincts that can trip us up on money and society's women-specific programming that piles on those instincts. Armed with the truth, we learn how to make, own, and manage our money confidently.
This book is an invitation for women to challenge the common belief that it is taboo to talk about money. It is not only okay to talk about money but critically important for women to talk about money if we ever want to earn equal pay or have equal economic power.
