Welcome to the #WomenRockMoney Movement!
Let's work together to improve our finances, grow our businesses, and chase our dreams!
What is the #WomenRockMoney Movement?
Women inspiring women to get educated about money and chase their dreams!
Over 40 female money bloggers, entrepreneurs, and financial experts have come together in honor of International Women's Day to fight the long-standing gender inequalities when it comes money. Together, we wish to spread the word that no matter your current circumstances, you have the power to achieve financial freedom. And we want to help you get there!
We believe the status quo can't change until women are willing to talk about money. We believe it is time to embrace our dreams, acknowledge where we could use a little extra help, and lean on our sisters to create the lives we want.

Why a #WomenRockMoney Movement?
I believe women are powerful. I believe all women can be financially independent, fantastic investors, and successful professionals and business owners.
But I also know there is still gender inequality in the U.S. and across the world that holds us back. And I'm sick of it. I believe it is time we took our success into our own hands.
Here are some eye-opening, concerning facts...
But there is good news too... We have already proven that we have the power to close the gap.

Inspiration from #WomenRockMoney Collaborators!
In honor of International Women's Day 2018, over 40 fantastic female money and business bloggers have come together to share their best financial advice for women! Check out snippets of their insight below and be sure to click through to read their full articles for maximum inspiration!
No matter how much or how little money you make, you have to know how to manage it.
I believe money is power and that a society that continues to treat women as financially irresponsible spendthrifts holds the world back.
If you want to be a woman who rocks her money, you have got to be willing to talk about finances—the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the numbers you don’t understand.
You know who's gonna save you? You.
I want any woman who feels unsure about investing to know that not only do you have a place at the table, but your lack of surety may be the very thing that makes you a better investor than any of the guys sitting beside you. Don't be cowed by the bluster and jargon of the investment world. You can do this.
When considering what advice to share today, I went through many ideas. They were all fine, but I wanted to share something a bit different… something that may be a bit more abstract, but could be applied to a variety of situations and scenarios. So, I decided to share the following two pieces of advice today. #1) Be Open to Finding Your Passion in Unexpected Places and #2) Allow for Change
You know how you schedule that appointment with your gynecologist every year because your gynecological health is really important? Well, your financial health is important too. Really important. You can do this!
A long time feminist, I realized it did not matter how many protests or rallies I attended if I did not allow myself to be vulnerable and therefore seen. The purchases and mindset I had, created a barrier for connection and a hole in my wallet. I needed to get to the point where I was rallying for women every single day.
I want to talk a bit about salaries - and raises - because as much as your savings rate depends on tracking your spending closely and determining the big money wasters in your budget, the income side of the equation is what can really jump start your financial security.
The underlying biologic difference between a male and a female is a Y chromosome versus an X chromosome. And as far as I know, there is nothing about having two X chromosomes that makes you any worse at managing money.
Women shouldn't be afraid to take control of their finances, and make bold plans. I am on a journey to financial independence and I'm on track to retire early before 40.
Whenever I say that personal finance is personal, I mean that in the “your money isn’t going to look like my money” sense. But it’s also true that since you’re the one who cares the most, it’s personally up to you to learn how to manage your money.
A woman needs to try and reach financial independence and make it above glass ceiling first, then take the leap to stand up for other women. You need someone at the top to pull other women through the pipeline.
Don't let men have all the investing fun! Closing the investing gap will not only put women in a better financial position, it will also boost confidence that can spread to all areas of your life. Being financially independent is a game changer ladies.
Financial independence is so much more than money in the bank. It’s a secret super power. It's the great equalizer, and it’s the secret we need to share with each other because it’s what will make us all better off sooner than later.
In a survey about financial literacy, not a single woman was confident enough to say she got all the answers right—even when she did. Luckily, financial confidence is something you can build, no matter where you're starting from.
A retirement crisis is brewing, and Jason Momoa’s not gonna come save you. But an IRA will! I challenge you to open an IRA and fund it with whatever you can afford. It’s not as scary as it sounds. You can do it!
When we learn to manage our money well, we can and will achieve our goals.
In order to increase the financial knowledge and confidence of women we need to create an environment where we all feel comfortable talking about money.
Whether it’s harassment at work, or your boss asking you to do unethical things, or coworkers who make your life miserable, if you have a side hustle, you don’t have to deal with it.
Have you ever thought about the accuracy of the phrase "it's the thought that counts"? Thoughts don't bring you closer to your goals (especially your financial goals), so I'm proposing a new phrase! Want to join the revolution?
Money, and your future, are too important to outsource to someone else without a second thought. Don’t stand down when someone tries to tell you that money isn’t “your place.” You can’t afford not to.
Money is a tool to give you what you want in life. Bonus piece of advice: It is (better than) okay to be a woman who makes money!
Obstacles in a women's career add up. Have confidence in your toolkit to break the barriers down, leading to a more financially and personally gratifying career.
Talk. Share your dreams. Make plans. Work out TOGETHER how you are going to achieve them with what you both contribute.
Ask to be included in the finances. If you moved in with your spouse because they had a house, ask to get signed in as a co-owner of the mortgage. Start to pay attention to what comes in and what goes out in terms of income and expenses. Money is too important to let yourself be ignorant about it.
You can’t assume that women who are deep in debt are just bad with money. We should quit blaming (or even shaming) them and start helping them instead.
Do not do a good job at convincing yourself that your ideas won't work. Look for success stories and inspiration.
The best thing you can do for your financial health is to make sure you are paid what you deserve. Don't let the world keep you from that!
One day, you will wake up and realize that there isn’t anymore time to do the things that you’ve always wanted to do. So go do it now!
The only thing standing between you and financial literacy is the person in the mirror. What are you going to do about it?
Money is a tool you use to reach your dreams. Learning now will help you save for your future. Dream big and then leverage money to help you achieve your goals.
Money isn’t boring – it can set you free. Money brings the choice to move home, walk away from a bad relationship or leave a job that isn’t working for you. So make the most of your money, because lack of it, as mounting debt, can destroy lives.
Women are so busy in their everyday lives that they often put off things they know are important - including learning about money. Getting around to it someday isn't soon enough. Let today be someday.
There's nothing as empowering as a group of like-minded individuals who can help you set and benchmark your goals. The right people can inspire you to reach farther than even you thought possible.
I believe that money can be used as a tool to empower women and give them control over their own lives. It’s up to us to face our financial issues and set ourselves up for success. From there, we’ll all be more capable to change the world.
Becoming a money-smart woman isn't something that would be nice to do - it's something you must do, for yourself, your family, and the world.
The growth of women-led small businesses doesn't all stem from positive reasoning. One reason people leave the W-2 grind and head out on their own is unequal pay and marginalization in the workplace. It stands to reason that women would start working for themselves, taking charge and employing others.

The Motherhood Penalty is like the gender pay gap on steroids. Working mamas - find out how to radically improve your salary negotiation skills so that you can get paid what you're worth, and improve your family's future financial security.
Any personal finance blogger will tell you that it’s important to know your net worth. But there’s another type of worth that’s just as important with finances: self worth. Do you recognize and know your worth financially?
Please, become a student of personal finance and engage in this important area of your life. It really is that important. Your financial health depends on it.
We have the power to change our spending habits and grow our own wealth. Now, we just need the knowledge and tools.
While it takes many things in combination to help you achieve successes in your life, they are all only possible when you believe in yourself first.
I lifted the veil on the wealth management industry and here's what I found. Investing is no different than traveling to a foreign country.
Don't wait to act until you have all the answer. You will likely never have all the answers—I sure don't! What I do know is that my life is better for having challenged myself to accomplish more over these last several years.
In honor of International Women’s Day, I’m calling bullshit on one more thing, because personal finance rules are for dicks.
You are not your income, your house, your car, your job, your clothes, or your purse. You are not your debts or loans or bad investments or financial mistakes. You are not what is or isn't in your wallet and you're certainly not your budget. Money doesn't make you who you are.
