How can we handle the impact of comparison culture on our bank accounts? Should we want an engagement ring, or is that anti-feminist? How can we say no to events we can't afford but we feel obliged to attend to please others?
Money has the power to shape, make or even break our lives, and can have a significant impact on our mental health - so why aren't we treating it as an important part of our wellbeing? In each chapter of this book, financial writer, speaker and influencer Ellie Austin-Williams tackles a major area in our life that might bring us financial anxiety, from friendship to love. Topics covered include:
The rise of girl boss culture and the impact it can have on career and financial decisions
How society has increasingly encouraged women to spend their way to happiness and how to navigate the noise telling you to spend
The role of privilege, race and class in our pursuit of financial "success"
Why we feel we have to get ahead of others to be happy and how to handle comparison culture
The impact of social media on our spending habits
What we learned about work and money from our parents.
Insights from financial, psychology and relationship experts add to Ellie's own expertise, alongside relatable anecdotes from real people. Each chapter ends with some practical tips and tricks that you can use to empower yourself to improve your financial wellbeing.
