To empower women through financial literacy.
Welcome to Money Nuggets, the career and personal finance blog that is dedicated to helping women save more, spend wisely and secure their financial future.
Obviously, women are perfect. But if we have one fatal flaw, it’s that we don’t always recognise our true value.
For too long women have been earning consistently less than their male counterparts and failing to develop the skills necessary to better invest their finances and make more money.
According to the latest Forbes Rich List, of the 100 richest people in the world, just 10 are women– yet we make up 50% of the world’s population (and we are responsible for the creation of the other 50%!) and 47% of the British workforce.
You Deserve More
We deserve more – more money, more career advancements and more chances to invest with the ‘boys’. That’s why Money Nuggets is here, a personal finance blog for women.
Too many intelligent, ambitious women are losing out financially due to lack of financial knowledge.
Whether you are worried about your retirement fund, lowering your debts, your student loans, your mortgage repayments or how to get a better return on your savings and investment – we will give you real, honest advice that doesn’t come wrapped up in financial jargon and hidden price tags.
We want to empower women to manage their own money and make the world of finance more accessible, so that you can make all the right decisions for your financial future.
Every article will address a key financial concern for the modern woman:
- We will inspire you to break the glass ceiling with our tried and tested career advice for women.
- We will show you how to save money in your day to day life, with our regular money saving tips.
- We will demystify the world of finance and investments, so you can take control of your own financial destiny.
- We will guide you through your debt problems – from how to pay off debt realistically, to getting out of credit card debt for good.
