"We won't have true equality until we have financial equality" -Tori
Today we chat about
the real money topics that
women need to be aware of!
Educating the Youth:
Can you believe Tori started a business at the age of 9? Thanks to her parents efforts to educate her about finances at a young age she was able to learn through real life experiences how to pitch herself & handle money!
Here's how you can apply this to your life;
- Encourage your little ones (don't stop at lemonade stands!)
- Have positive conversations about money
- Lead by example; if you talk about budgeting, do it! If you talk about frugality; show it!
- Foster confidence in your young ones and financial understanding
TALKING ABOUT FINANCES IS JUST AS IMPORTANT
AS TALKING ABOUT KIDS!
Tori shares that this topic is discussed very early
on with any romantic partners,
and is even open about finances
with her friends and family!
Communication in Relationships:
- Make sure to talk about money before getting serious (just like kids!)
- Focus on settings mutual goals as a team
- Call out the elephant in the room if your nervous to talk about something
- Let it be something exciting that your working towards
- Set a designated time to talk about money
Jess shares her story of 2 months into dating alexander when he asked about her student loans, and how we paid $115,000 of student loans before we even got married!
