Tiny Bites Ep. 22: #WomenRockMoney International Women's Day 2018 | Tiny Ambitions

In honour of International Women’s Day, I’m jumping on the #WomenRockMoney movement created by Chelsea over at MamaSavesFish.com. So in this week’s episode of Tiny Bites, I wanted to share my best piece of financial advice for women.

    First of all, thank you for the shoutout to my brand-new podcast, Britt! I am so touched! 🙂 Your support means so much to me. As for this episode of Tiny Bites, what a great topic to cover for IWD! I think that’s great advice to start now, and to talk about money to remove that taboo. I agree that far too many women have become dependent on the men in their lives and therefore sadly never achieve a sense of financial independence. My grandmother is a great example. She’s now in her late eighties and never had paid employment or her own money to spend as she wanted, so she always needed ‘permission’ from my grandfather for everything money-related. I’m so proud, though, that my own mother – their daughter – as a single, working mother, earned and controlled her own money 100%. She taught me a lot about finances and budgeting, and I’ll always be grateful for having had a very inspiring role model who showed me that strong, independent women can choose to be financially literate and don’t have to depend on men for income or financial advice.

      Thanks, Lisa! That’s so great you had a good financial role model in your mom. I think things used to be handled so differently in your grandmother’s time. Her situation was probably considered normal at the time. I’m glad we’ve made strides in that area, but there’s always more to do. Thanks for listening!

        Agreed! In my grandmother’s time that was a completely normal experience, and we really have come so far! It was really inspiring for me to see that pattern shift completely from one generation to the next. Enjoy your weekend Britt! 🙂
