When it comes to money, is there any way women can get a break?

The answer, here in Arwen Becker’s first book, is a resounding YES!

Women are experts at handling it when things get messy, and life’s financial preparations aren’t any different. Through deeply personal stories and real-life examples, author and speaker Arwen Becker walks through the challenges facing women and their money today. Arwen brings finance out of the boardroom and into the living room for money lessons that are simple and executable for women in every stage of their financial journeys…truly taking the conversation of money from the head to the heart.

About The Book

life-with-arwen-icon-half

When there’s a crisis at work, she handles it. When a parent, child, or spouse is ill and needs more care, she gives up her time and resources . . . and handles it. In professional and personal circles, when things go sideways, women sacrifice time, energy, and money to handle it, often to their own detriment.

Finances are no different. In an industry that speaks a very masculine language, it’s time to acknowledge that women are not a “cute little niche,” nor are they “flaky.” Financial education often takes a back seat since women are busy doing things that truly matter, tending to the people they love. But 80 percent of men die married and 80 percent of women die single*. A woman bears the ultimate responsibility for her financial security and she will likely be “the last woman standing,” left holding the bag after a divorce, elderly parent care, or the death of a spouse.

Financial Adviser and National Speaker Arwen Becker shares the life lessons that she has garnered through speaking with thousands of women about their money over the past two decades. Through childhood financial struggles, many personal failures, witnessing her mom’s inspirational journey, and a few wild creature rescues, Arwen explores each step along her money journey with humor, deep honesty, and fascinating stories. Her raw trials and triumphs are sure to help readers understand that, after a very rough start and many mistakes, She Handled It, So Can You!

"Arwen, you did it! When one has grown weary of stereotypical stories about women and money—then this book is the one you need. Most stories about women and their money are narrated like a scary dream: If you spend money, then watch out—you’ll become a bag lady. If you save money, then guess what–you did not save enough money. In She Handled It, So Can You!, Arwen shares true stories which include growing your money confidence, the importance of investment persistence, the critical need of longevity planning today, and ultimately relishing your work. Do yourself a favor: Take a weekend, read the book, and start working on your money plan. Friends, you deserve this!"
