Many women of today finally have the chance to choose for themselves what they want to do in their lives. However, just making more money is not enough to get rich.

Let’s Talk About: The Future Is Female

The Future is Female, a full day conference held on 8th April 2017, was packed with eleven panel discussions on managing personal finance and career growth. From dishing out investment hacks to investment strategies, the conference curated by The New Savvy empowered its female-only audience with the confidence to take calculated risks and plan for a better future. One message stayed clear throughout The Future is Female – language should not prevent you from progress. Wade through the jargon, redefine your conversational skills with firmness, have open conversations, and leave no doubt behind. Language & Female : Stop saying ‘I Think’ We know language can influence decisions and reactions. However, few of us are aware that we should minimise the usage of emotional terms and highlight our strengths in a proactive manner. The audience was clearly reminded of that during the second panel discussion. Tjin Lee, Founder and Organiser of Audi Fashion Festival Singapore and many other female-oriented companies like Mercury Marketing & Communications and Treehaus, illustrated the importance of language in a succinct way.

10 Things You Should Never Apologize For Again as a Woman

Sorry, Not Sorry The habit of women apologizing for almost everything, even for things we do not have to be sorry for, is deeply embedded in our culture. In fact, the idea that women apologize too much is still instilled in us today that someone bothered to create an app to help women to stop apologizing. Perhaps this is a result of centuries of being treated like second-class citizens. Or maybe we have been raised in a society where womanly and feminine values are frowned upon. Maybe it is because society has been so used to women acting according to their standards or how they dictate women should act. Things You Should Never Apologize For Again as a Woman Whatever the reasons are, times have changed, and you need to stop now. Here are the 10 apologies you should never again make as a woman working from home. Your clothing choices As a home-based business owner, you do not have to apologize for “distracting” other people with what you are wearing. You can work with your mini skirt.

Should We Give Customize Financial Advice for Women?

These day, if you want to get to the top of your career, hard work will not do; you need to plan well and strategize. For busy young women professionals or those who do not know much about financial management and planning, hiring a financial advisor or representative might seem like a good option. However, some financial advice may not turn out the same way to women of different demographics. It is for this reason that research is done on this exactly, and Fidelity, who provides employer-based retirement accounts, took part in this project by liberating financial advice from the traditional ones tailored to fit everyone to more specific advice, this time depending on each woman client’s demographic. According to the consulting firm’s representative, a significant number of companies and organizations offering financial advisor and planning services are beginning to see that financial advice is not “one-size-fits-all”; the number continues to grow up steadily as well. They have started changing the format of the planning and information they provide to their clients based on several factors — for example, women’s nationality, income groups, career direction, and amount of credit/debt.

7 Ways to Trick Your Brain Into Getting Rich & Achieving Your Financial Goals

Getting rich is never really “easy”, especially when you are chasing it on your own. On top of that, it’s not just about the amount of hard work you put into that goal; even things such as your upbringing as well as your unconscious thoughts and beliefs on money will affect your progress. Thankfully, there actually are ways to make your way around obstacles like this. When it comes to unconscious, the trick is, well, to trick it. Here are 7 ways to do it: Automate your savings. Before you spend all your month’s income and have a problem with your spending, perhaps due to a hard-to-control impulse to buy, you can choose to automate your regular deposits to your savings account. This way, your savings are safe and sound in your bank account before you get your hands on them. Visit the nearest branch of your bank to inquire about this option. Use cash more often. What we use when we spend affect how we perceive money and their value as well. Obviously, when we use credit cards, it is easier to overspend; this is because you do not see your money being spent. It is for this reason […]

5 Reasons Why Singapore Women Need Their Own Money

Without a doubt, Singapore women need their own money. In this article, we will discuss the many reasons why this is beneficial. If you think that only women will benefit – think again. Even the whole family will feel the positive effects when a woman is earning her own keep. Fortunately, having your own money is not that difficult to achieve in Singapore. According to the latest reports, Singapore is leading among its Asian neighbours when it comes to closing the gender workplace gap. In fact, one of the biggest companies in the country, Singtel, is a great example. One-third of their senior management positions are female. What is the role of a woman in Singapore? As a woman living in Singapore, you have a lot of opportunities to earn your own money. There is really no excuse to just rely on your husband or someone else to supply your financial needs. Yes – this is even true after you have your own kids. Some people think that a mother’s place is at home, taking care of the kids. Well, that time has long gone.

When Gender Bias in Networking Brings Women Nowhere And What To Do About It

“How do I get ahead?” Asks frustrated women in stagnating career paths everywhere. Inevitably, someone will answer, “just network more”. Let’s be frank here. ‘Networking’ is an action, not a solution. And women already excel in it, thank you very much. Women work well in teams – how is that not networking? Women tend to be better at emotional intelligence, and reading social cues – how are those qualities bad for networking? In short, women have the skills in networking, but not the results. So no, I will not accept ‘just network more’ as an answer. It is too insulting to women everywhere. I believe we need to take a closer look at how ‘networking’ fails women, because obviously we are missing out on something big here. According to the working paper of Lily Fang, associate professor of finance at INSEAD and Sterling Huang, a Ph.D. candidate in the same school, 1815 male and female Wall Street analysts in their study start off with an equal number of school-based connections, but male candidates are likely to get more help from their contacts. That is not all. Hiring bias in academic science was exposed after male applicants were viewed as more […]
