October 31, 2014

1

  Money means more than dollars. It’s tied to our sense of success, to security, to power, to independence.  It can be what allows us, or stops us, from fulfilling our dreams.  And, for most women, it’s something we don’t give much thought to until we are confronted with a major life change.
