Fear. Anxiety. Inadequacy. These feelings are extremely common around money issues and personal finance, regardless of income level. It’s especially true of women, who often have a sense that money matters are “beyond them” or simply belong on a list of things that are somehow inappropriate or otherwise irrelevant for them personally.

Women often grew up watching their mothers and grandmothers turn the household finances over to a husband. Frequently this model included trusting the male partner’s judgement and power for all financial decisions and relying on him to perform the routine tasks like paying bills and reconciling bank statements.
