âA strong financial foundation helps provide women with life-enhancing choices and possibilitiesâ. Â Notion Press, Indiaâs leading self-publishing platform, presents Investing is the New Cooking, a guide to a womenâs wealth creation journey, by author Sapna Narang.
As per the World Economic Forum to create an equal and enabled world, we need to close the gender gap. Over centuries, one of the key issues fueling the gender gap is the âwealth gapâ. The âwealth gapâ is the difference in average wealth owned by women as compared to men.
Most women do not give adequate importance to managing their investments, building assets or growing their wealth. If you are a woman who needs to take care of yourself or your family, you need to take care of your money, grow investments and build wealth. Through âInvesting is the New Cookingâ, Sapna Narang wants to highlight a few key points which women can use as guideposts for their wealth creation journey.
Due to social conditioning, most women have grown up with the belief that managing money is a manâs domain. Growing up, women have seen papa take care of the money and mama take care of the hearth. Through âInvesting is the New Cookingâ, Sapna strives to instil the belief among women that managing family investments is as integral and crucial for a familyâs wellbeing, as is providing nutritious meals. Women, however highly educated and accomplished, often have an unclear vision about their family’s investments or assets. It is fine to be comfortable one’s father, or husband, or any other male member of the family, is taking care of the execution and management of financial matters. However, it is important to have an overview of the financial situation in one’s household. Â Family investments and assets offer the family numerous possibilities and also function as a safety net. They offer our family with life-enhancing choices. A strong financial foundation supports emotional, mental and physical health.
