How do you achieve financial freedom? First, let’s start with the woman of influence piece. You, or your daughter sister or mother can be a woman of influence. Sure we’ve seen amazing technological and political change over the past century, but the single most powerful economic change has not been caused by technology or the rise of developing nations. It’s been created by women. Women like you! Women like your wife, mother, daughter, or sister.
You might be reading this article while you’re at work sitting with your kids at the park or exercising at the gym. It doesn’t really matter where you are. You’re a woman with influence, and you have the potential power to make positive changes for yourself, your family, your community, and even the world at large.
Think about it. 100 years ago the world looked very different. Cars and telephones were scarce. TVs were not invented, and apples were just a tasty fruit. More importantly, women couldn’t vote, couldn’t own property, and couldn’t even open a bank account in their own name. Education was available primarily to wealthy women, and a woman’s path to personal success was often extremely limited. During the past century, women have gained these rights (often with the help of men) and have transformed their role in the family, the community, the workplace, the marketplace, and the world at large.
In fact, even with all the technologic and global change mentioned above, women’s influence has had an even larger impact on our economy. The economist wrote that over the past two decades, women have contributed more to growth of the global economy then have either new technology or China or India. And that’s just the beginning.
Last year, 72% of all high school valedictorians were young women. For every 100 young men graduating from college, there are 133 women giving women the tools to succeed in the new economy. And they are. For the first time in history women make up more than half of the workforce. While men’s earning power has remained flat over the last several decades, women’s earning power has grown exponentially.
In fact, today nearly a quarter of wives out earn their husbands. And nine out of 10 men say they’re comfortable with this. As women earn more, men are often getting more involved with their children and family life, experiencing firsthand how women’s increase in earning power can be a win for everyone. Women are taking their earning power and unleashing it on the marketplace.
In fact, women now represent a whopping:
- 83% of all consumer purchases including
- 90% of all food purchases
- 80% of all healthcare spending
- 93% of all over-the-counter pharmaceuticals
- 55% of all consumer electronics
- 53% of all stock market investments and
- 62% of all new-car purchases.
They are the primary market for just about everything!
Whether CEOs, stay-at-home moms, or entrepreneurs who are successfully combining work and family, women are beginning to realize that they have tremendous influence. Slowly at first, but with increasing speed, women are unleashing their influence, and reshaping our world.
For example, in the US women start their own businesses at twice the rate of the national average helping to lead our country out of the recession. In developing nations, 90% of women who earn income reinvest it in families and communities by sending kids to school or buying clean water and electricity for their communities compared with only 30% to 70% of men.
So what can you do to be a woman of influence? An essential step is to achieve financial freedom because self-reliance is key to you, and your family’s emotional well-being and security. When you can rise above the stress and pressure of making ends meet, you gain the time and psychological wherewithal to figure out how you want to live your life!
