#CelebratingWomenWhoDare |Leah Karimi: WWN Entrepreneurial & Community Leadership Spotlight!

Financial Literacy Month Whole Woman Network

 “When a woman has knowledge which is power, it impacts and benefits the whole family.  I’m maximizing my potential and I started doing so at the age of 21. I believe that once the women realize the potential they have and maximize it, then we will have successful homes, communities and countries. It is my calling to reach as many women and people, in general, as I can. Together, we can make poverty become something of the past.” ~Leah Karimi~

Why is Financial Literacy Important for Women?

“Money has some rules attached to it. And if you follow the rules, you’re going to have more stability in your life than if you don’t follow the rules. Doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman.

The rules are the same: You need to have a plan for how you use your money, you need to have a healthy credit identity, you need to have emergency money and some insurance.

I think it’s really important that we come to realize that life is about balance, that it’s not all or nothing. It’s not spending every waking moment thinking about money or spending no time thinking about money.

Managing money isn’t really that hard. It requires some discipline and there is some detail involved, but in reality it doesn’t take that much time and the payback is huge.” –Gail Vaz-Oxlade
