DOES EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THE PINK TAX?

I just came from the drug store. Because ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, which protected a woman’s right to getting an abortion, I’ve been petrified. And even though I’m not currently sexually active, I’m doing my damndest to become sexually active again! And I’m still in my childbearing years, even though I’m 42. So, I thought it would be smart to purchase some Plan B to have on hand, JUST IN CASE. Because it’s not looking good for Pennsylvania in terms of abortion rights and where PA will land with their laws. And I just had to pay $50 FUCKING DOLLARS for one package of this. For one pill! And this my friends, is an example of the pink tax. Continue reading DOES EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THE PINK TAX?

ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT IN THE WORKPLACE

I’ve been meaning to write about this topic for awhile now, but I didn’t quite have enough material to work with. Now I do, so I’m going for it! Because I really believe so passionately that women in particular, rarely ask for what they want in the workplace, especially in terms of compensation. And what I have found, through my own personal experience, is that if you don’t ask, it won’t ever happen. And if you DO ask, you often get what you ask for, if not better! So, women, please do me a favor, and ask for what you want in the workplace! Because you are worth it! Continue reading ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT IN THE WORKPLACE

ESTABLISH FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE, REGARDLESS OF YOUR LOVE STATUS

As many of you know, “I Lost My Dream Life 12 Days Before Christmas.” And as horrific as getting dumped can feel (I’m still dealing with all of the emotions), there have also been a handful of logistical nightmares to tend to. Because we co-habitated, and now I am suddenly living on my own. And through all of this undoing and parting ways, I have been SO thankful that I have had enough money saved to deal with all the shit that has come up. And I just want to encourage everyone, ESPECIALLY females, to establish some financial independence, regardless of your relationship status. It has made all the difference in the world. And it makes this whole horrendous process, just slightly less stressful. Continue reading ESTABLISH FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE, REGARDLESS OF YOUR LOVE STATUS

NAVIGATING THE MALE-DOMINATED FINANCIAL WORLD AS A FEMALE

In this podcast episode, I fangirl over Sallie Krawcheck, Founder and CEO of Ellevest. This is not an interview with Sallie. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her! Continue reading NAVIGATING THE MALE-DOMINATED FINANCIAL WORLD AS A FEMALE

CREDIT CARDS 101: EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CREDIT CARDS BUT PROBABLY DON’T

I have to admit that I’m very lucky. I had a father who taught my sister and I the basics of finances from an early age. When we turned 16 (we’re twins), he gave each of us our own credit card so we could establish some credit in our name, and told us he would … Continue reading CREDIT CARDS 101: EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CREDIT CARDS BUT PROBABLY DON’T
