A growing number of women have moved into the breadwinner role in their households, but very few are prepared for what it entails. As a result, we struggle to make financial choices that position us for the lives that we want.
The subconscious belief that we would never be main earners impacts some of the most professionally successful women. If we don’t understand how critical it is to build wealth, it’s hard for our professional success to translate to long-term financial stability.
How do we adopt a breadwinner’s mentality in our salary negotiations? What do we need to start investing strategically?
In this episode, I’m joined by financial expert, Chief Education Officer at Acorns and author of Think Like a Breadwinner, Jennifer Barrett. She shares how we can take charge of our financial decisions, and change the trajectory of our lives with one mindset shift.
