L: Let’s Talk Money (2022 A-Z)
Let’s Talk Money
“I keep telling my daughter that studies are important,” says my friend at work, “I sometimes give her your example too, on how to work your way to becoming financially independent”
I feel honored and a tad bit flustered too simply because I don’t know how to accept praise graciously. Plus, I am that not amazing at personal finance management. Guess I’m doing OK though.
“Have you watched the Paytm social experiment video?” I ask.
He hasn’t heard of it. I play it on YouTube. He’s amazed.
“We never realize …,” he says.
“Yep, it’s important, but we never do.”
Those who have not watched the Paytm social experiment should absolutely do. Most people – especially women put personal finance management on the back burner, because there are several other valid priorities to juggle with, that fight for their time, effort, and energy. This is not a debate or fight for gender equality. Inclusivity and awareness in this field are important for everyone. As more women work and contribute to households, it’s equally important that they also understand about investments, insurances – life, health and more – so they can jointly make better decisions for the future. ‘Let’s Talk Money’ by Monika Halan is a brilliant, absolute must-read; super simple and extremely relatable. Finally, if there is one book I would recommend to you – especially young men and women starting out with their careers, this would be it.

I don’t agree with the message of the Paytm social experiment, while factually what they conveyed is accurate.
I just don’t think women should look down at themselves if they don’t know much about personal finances etc if and don’t have the interest.
I have always tried to follow in my mum’s footsteps. She would always divide her money into expenses (70%), savings(15%), investments(10%)and donations (5%). I too do the same.
I once told an assistant that she should do what she loves… And that’s now what she’s doing… and the money comes afterwards.
Oh absolutely! But she should know how to manage and maybe even grow the money that comes afterwards!
Thank you for visiting! I’ll be hopping over as well very shortly!
I’m lucky that my dad taught me from an early age how to handle money.
