Not sure if you have seen that woman who does spots on PBS fundraisers - she is a
financial something-or-other. She has a very good attitude about money, and she says by adding
even a little each month, you feel more empowered financially. I agree with that 100%.

Her name is Suze Ormann, and you're right!, she has many logical things to say. Money *should* empower, but it so often does the opposite.

She also speaks about the *emotional* ties that bind us when we think about money. As a woman, I've found very interesting her insights on the peculiar ways *women* are likely to think of money (security, freedom, independence, defiance) and the traps this can set. All the financial advice in the world (and we all know there's plenty out there) won't help you if you don't understand *why* you spend money and on what.
