This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Let’s talk money girls. I know it might be a subject you don’t like to talk about or you leave it to the man of the house, but have you ever asked yourself this questions?
- What if something happens to my husband?
- How are our finances?
- Where’s our money?
The question is not, IF it happens, is WHEN is going to happen.
This is one of the most important tips I learned during and event with Prudential to learn more about how we as women can be more financially responsible. The goal of the event was to empower women to be confident when it comes to money decisions, so we can find the best financial solutions and make the best decisions for our family.
The event in San Diego , CA, was a very relax conversation between women with one goal in mind, How can I be better with my finances. You might be thinking, we’re doing great! But are you really involved in your family’s finances? I’m not! And lots of the women at the event agreed on how men are the ones who manage our finances and we women are low key and let them make all our financial decisions as has been customary, specially in the Latino community.

- Be Armed, Have a great product in my case an amazing blog.
- Set Your Rate, value yourself and your hard work and sell yourself!
- Deliver! If you don’t do a good job your clients won’t come back.

If you believe in yourself and that your dream can happen, it will become a reality!
My kids inspire me to keep fighting to reach my goals, but my #1 motivation to keep going and not quit when things aren’t going well is me! My personal goal is, I want to be the best version of myself, each and one of us have a talent and it’s our responsability to use that talent. I’m fearless, I don’t take no for an answer, I’m persistent and never give up. If you believe in yourself and that your dream can happen, it will become a reality!
Either if you’re a homestayed mom or you work, you have to take charge of your finances, don’t let the man of the house take the whole responsability, you owe it to your kids.
