Have you ever heard of a money club? I hadn’t, but a few days ago I read an article about a woman who started one. The woman was feeling financially lost and overwhelmed. After talking to some of her friends and realizing that a lot of them felt the same way, she started a money club. Similar to a book club, except instead of talking about literature, the discussion focused on money.
The group was a huge hit. It provided a safe place for women to get together and talk about their financial issues or struggles, and the support of the group encouraged and helped them create and meet financial goals. After the first meeting, everyone left feeling excited and empowered to take control of their finances.
Now, I am not the best when it comes to finances. I still don’t really know the difference between a 401k and a Roth IRA, and good luck asking me anything about investing!
I’d like to know more, but I find talking to people that really do know a lot about this kind of stuff rather intimidating. I’m embarrassed by my lack of knowledge, as well as some of my poor financial decisions of the past.
However, I would love to to be able to talk about these kinds of things with my girlfriends, or other women who get it, so I find the concept of this really appealing.
The problem is, people can be weird about talking about money. It can be pretty taboo subject. I wouldn’t even know where to begin starting a club like this.
What do you think? Would you be open to being part of a money club?
