As a Certified Financial Planner and owner of a B Corporation, I am always looking for books to share with my clients to help them on their journey of aligning their money with their values. In her excellent book, "Activate Your Money," Janine Firpo combines the lessons of how to invest with what to invest in. Her plain English explanations of the investment world with her deep dive into the many ways that we can all "Invest to Grow Your Wealth and Build a Better World" makes this important information accessible and actionable. It's a call to action that we can all use our resources to make the world a better place. I highly recommend "Activate Your Money" to anyone who wants to explore and enhance their own values-based investing.
As she describes in her blurb on the Amazon.com website, Activate Your Money provides the foundational support women need to talk to each other about their money, invest to grow their wealth, and to take the actions required to shift their assets into alignment with their values. Written for smart, savvy women who want to feel financially empowered, Activate Your Money delivers the depth of information you need to make informed decisions across your entire portfolio. Starting with checking and savings accounts and proceeding asset class by asset class, this book provides you with core knowledge, as well as concrete examples about how and where you can invest your money in the things you care about.
You don't have to do it alone. As women, our strength is in relationships, and this book will help you use that strength to attain better financial outcomes for yourself and your family. Activate Your Money will help you find communities of support and position you to share your knowledge with other women and enable the next generation of smart, confident values-aligned investors.
Unlike any other investing book out there, Activate Your Money offers expert guidance, a uniquely woman-centered approach, and a focus on doing good while doing well. Whether you are just starting out or are already a seasoned investor, this book has something for you.
