Today women rank “financial issues” as the number-one most pressing concern in their lives—more pressing than family, health, or time. We, women, know we need to do something, so why don’t we? What holds women back from getting actively involved in building their financially secure future?
Stepping back and looking at the past 75 years, you can make a case that the last depression never ended. Many of today’s financial problems stem from issues from the last depression that were never solved. The problems were simply pushed forward onto our generation and will continue to be pushed onto future generations. Today, we are entering a new era.

During one of his lessons on investing, my rich dad said, “Many people seem to think that great investments grow on trees. They think that investing should be easy.

The speed at which you can change and expand your context in order to adapt to the changes in the business world today is critical to every one of us who wants to succeed financially. The gap is no longer between the haves and have-nots. Today the gap that is changing the most rapidly is the financial gap between the middle class and the rich. Saying it bluntly, if you have a slow Industrial-Age plan, or context, you are being left behind financially—not by your peers, but by younger people with faster minds and more accelerated ideas.
