Build your own!
As a woman makes plans to get married and raise a Godly family, she should also build her financial capacity. Either by full-time employment, running a business or doing both in some cases, women should desire to be financially empowered.
Don’t look for financial security in marriage. There are many wrong reasons for marriage and financial gain is one of them.
As a single woman, I was assured by God’s word that I would prosper by His grace, hard work and consistency. The same way being married to a doctor doesn’t guarantee sound health, marrying a rich man doesn’t guarantee wealth.
Marry from a mind-set of a revelation in God’s word that says marriage is good. My experience in counselling and mentoring women reveals that women need to do better financially.
A woman must be able to stand on her own, hold down a job or have some skills that she can trade with for income.
For your finances to grow, seek knowledge. Attend financial seminars. Learn about money: know how it comes and goes.
Learn about budgeting and be disciplined enough to keep to your budget. Follow financial experts on social media, ask questions and get wisdom to build wealth in trust for your family and build a good name for yourself.
