About this book
An assistant vice president at Wells Fargo Bank, Glinda Bridgforth capably managed a $90 million unit. Yet her own financial situation was spinning out of control. It was 1988, and time for what she now affectionately calls her "three Bs" -- breakdown, breakout, and breakthrough. Today, she's not only a financial success, she's the guru for helping African-American women through the same monetary ups and downs she experienced. Girl, Get Your Money Straight! is her upbeat, inspiring guide to help black women everywhere get smart about money and start funding their dreams.

Where other finance books for African Americans offer basic advice, this is the first to delve deeply into the emotional and cultural factors that affect how black women manage their money. Written in a fresh, fun, sister-to-sister style, Girl, Get Your Money Straight! offers a perfect mix of emotional "coaching" and nuts-and-bolts financial advice. Through affirmations and exercises, Bridgforth show readers how to take control of the emotional issues and situations that lead to money mismanagement and then outlines a seven-step plan to financial wellness that includes setting goals, paying off debt, developing a spending plan, and investing for the future. Filled with inspiring examples of African-American women from all walks of life, Girl, Get Your Money Straight! is a hip, empowering, and engaging road map to healing your bank account and building a life that you love.
