No one plans to be bad at money. Life gets in the way, superannuation seems like a problem for our future selves, and asking for a pay rise is often an awkward, anxiety-inducing situation. Not to mention as women, we are fundamentally disadvantaged by the gender pay gap, which has flow on effects to everything from dropping out of the workforce to look after children to retiring with an average 46.6% less super than men.
We want to change that by giving you the tools you need to get a handle on your finances – no matter what your income.
In our upcoming Masterclass Online: How to boost your money game (on any income), Money magazine editor, Effie Zahos will cover the five biggest financial issues facing women and how we can overcome them.
