People join weight loss and exercise groups or even have business besties because they know it’s easier to stick to those goals when you have company. It also makes you accountable. If it’s just you, you can backslide pretty easily, because who’s going to know? Whether it’s in person or online, a community of peers can be a great way to sharpen your financial skills.
It’s not always as easy for women to find their financial community, though. “The goal is to get more women to use their financial power,” states Dr. Jewel Tankard (Bravo TV/ Millionaires Club ), “and we do have financial power especially when we join forces”.
“Learning from your peers or from people who look and talk like you — who take your culturally sensitivities into consideration and give non-biased financial insight — has a lot to offer” states Dr. Nicole Garner Scott (Founder / Money Coach, Amount Financial).
