By two leading financial experts: an essential guide for every woman who wants to build, preserve, and enjoy her wealth.Women control more than half of all wealth in the U .S., and in 2011 held the majority of jobs in the workforce. As women's earnings, freedom and influence increase, the old sequential patterns of education, marriage, motherhood, and retirement longer apply. A woman may set up a foundation in her twenties--when she sells her first company, support her family as the primary breadwinner in her thirties, start a new career in her sixties and remarry in her seventies. Today women cycle repeatedly but t in any traditional order through these stages: wealth building, romance and marriage, motherhood, power, crisis and loss, retirement, legacy building. In The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom, experts Carol Pepper and Camilla Webster offer women one invaluable pearl of wisdom for each of these key areas, helping them move beyond outdated financial-planning ideas to enjoy their power, transforming both their money and their lives.
