Financial Well-being: The Sisterhood of Money
CYNTHIA FICK IS a financial planner who decided to approach her business and her clients in a creative way, recognizing that the way women think about money, and about how much or little of it we feel we “deserve,” can make all the difference.
One of the exercises she believes in is insisting that people first figure out their goals in very concrete terms–and then write them down. And not only write them down but do so as if the client has already achieved them. This is a technique used in a lot of goal-setting programs, and it may seem gimmicky, but try it and you’ll appreciate how different it makes the goal feel.
Fick, based in Arizona, has written a book, “The Sisterhood of Money.” In it she expands on this way of dealing with financial goals. The bulk of the book is a narrative based on a handful of women with whom she creates a financial workshop. Each has a slightly different feeling about money, a different way of handling it and thinking about it–and some of those feelings get in their way.

Despite having roughly half the wealth in the United States, studies indicate that women could use support in understanding their finances, including when it comes to making decisions for investments.
“Women often believe they are incapable of understanding finances, which becomes a self-perpetuating, self-fulfilling theme in society and, more importantly, the minds of many women,” Fick says. “But we’re beginning to change the narrative between women and money.”
