Episode 131: Inspirational Investing 2023 Book Launch
It's time I let you know about a recent project I've been involved in.....
...I've helped write a book!! Woo hoo!
And it's all about one of my FAVOURITE SUBJECTS - Investing.
It's written for women, by women and is being released on International Women's Day by publishers Harriman House (who incidentally have also published next month's bookclub book - The Psychology of Money).
Why is this book both timely and essential?
>> A 2022 Bankrate study found women feel more financially stressed as 60% worry about emergency savings compared to 53% of men
>> According to finder.com, less than 30% of women in the UK invest
>> Despite fewer women investing, a 2018 three-year study of Barclays investors showed women outperform men by 1.8%.
Editor Amanda Taylor has brought together leading women from the world of investment and asks:
• What is the impact of rising living costs?
• Where to start with investing your money?
• How can your health affect your money?
• How can you make sure your money is being invested in alignment with your values?
• What psychological biases affect how well you invest?
I'm so excited about this... it's not my own book, but it's a stepping stone to my own book (which I'm aiming to publish in 2024 so watch this space). I'm so humbled to be a part of this and I'm looking forward to reading my own copy soon!
You can order an e-book or physical book here direct from the publisher Harriman House. At the time of release, Bookshop.org* was selling it slightly cheaper, so you might want to pick that one instead (*affiliate link).
In this episode, I talk with fellow author Julie Flynn abut the book, women and investing, and have a general catch up :) We haven't chatted since clubhouse!
