Financial education is not the key to female empowerment. What is? Closing the gap between what you know and what you do. It’s about your ability to confidently have a tough financial conversation with others. Women are equal to or superior to men when making financial decisions. So, they need to become comfortable with economic power.

In today's episode, my guest is Tracy Theemes, co-founder of the Sophia Wealth Academy, certified Financial Planner, and International Alliance for Women – World of Difference award winner. Also, Tracy is the author of, The Financially Empowered Woman, which helps women enhance their financial literacy and build their wealth.
