FROM THE PUBLISHER

In the spirit of lyanla Vanzant meets Suze Orman comes an empowering, practical handbook for financial health from a leading source of financial advice for African American women.
An assistant vice president at Welts Fargo Bank, where she had worked for more than a decade, Glinda Bridgforth capably managed a $90 million unit. Yet her own financial situation was spinning out of control. It was 1988, and time for what she now affectionately calls her "three Bs"-breakdown, breakout, and breakthrough. Today, she's not only a financial success, she's the guru for helping African-American women through the same monetary ups and downs she experienced. Drawing on Bridgforth's business savvy, the experiences of her clients, and her own hard-won turnaround, Girl, Get Your Money Straight! is an upbeat, inspiring guide to help black women everywhere get smart about money and start funding their dreams.

Where other finance books for African Americans offer basic advice, this is the first to delve deeply into the emotional and cultural factors that affect how black women manage their money. Written in a fresh, fun sister-to-sister style, Girl, Get Your Money Straight! offers a perfect mix of emotional "coaching" and nuts-and-bolts financial advice. Through affirmations and exercises, Bridgforth shows readers how to take control of the emotional issues and situations that lead to money mismanagement and then outlines a seven-step plan to financial wellness that includes setting goals, paying off debt, developing a spending plan, and investing for the future. Each of her "seven financial prescriptions" includes worksheets, exercises, and heartfelt, inspiring examples of African American women from all walks of life.

According to The Wall Street Journal, black women are currently the demographic most eager for financial counseling and advice. Perfect for this information-hungry audience, Girl, Get Your Money Straight! is a hip, empowering, and engaging road map to healing your bank account and building a life that you love.
