Making Money Moves - Quick Tips I Learned
This post is brought to you in partnership with Zelle® and the InfluenceHer Collective. All words and opinions are my own.
Hey everyone, thank you so much for coming to my blog. It's been a long time since I've been on here, but I wanted to share with you some of the important lessons I learned about money during my experience with Zelle last week.
Some of you may know that Zelle lets you safely pay friends fast - and, the best thing about Zelle is probably already found in your banking app. I really admire their company because of the amazing Zelle executives I met a few weeks ago, and because they're really trying to change the industry by educating young people (especially women) on how to take control of their money.
Here is the key takeaway I had:
1.It's time for young people, especially young women to take control of their own finances.
Even the most accomplished women sometimes are still not very well-versed with how to deal with finances and how to deal with their money. Not because they're not able or smart enough, but because they've been told that they can't. Zelle wants to empower women to take control of their own financial independence - whether it’s paying your parents back or requesting friends to pay you back for dinner, Zelle is there to help.
2. 80% of women avoid talking about money.
Let’s open up that conversation. Talk to your boss about that pay raise. Advocate for yourself at your job and let your higher ups know that you’ve been working hard. You can take charge of your own money moves.
