Money Musings 💭 financial feminists unite 👊
I spent last week in Washington D.C. at an event called FinCon which brings together 2,500 personal finance nerds, media, and brands for a week of content, schmoozing, and celebrating. This might sound like a personal hell for many 🤣but despite the overwhelm, I had a great time connecting with fellow financial feminists (they do exist!) and learning about the latest financial technologies and products.
While there were many takeaways, a Q&A with Jean Chatzky stood out to me. She talked about compassion and money. One of the things that drives me crazy about the personal finance world is all the judgment and dogma - experts looking down on us because we can’t control our spending 🙄 or even because value different things. Enough of this! 🤬
One of the really exciting shifts I’m seeing is that we, the individuals, are getting a voice. Our power is growing. 👊 We get to choose who we listen to, what companies we interact with and I see that we’re demanding higher standards of integrity, equality and compassion.
I’m so honored to be part of this badass community of Fiscal Femmes. Thank you for choosing to spend part of your Wednesdays with me. 🙏
