Tamara Monosoff, founder of Mom Invented, whose mission to “Inspire, Inform & Boldly Promote Courageous Women in Business” and “Celebrate the Creativity of Moms by Launching Innovative Mom Invented Products Around the World” has joined the Financial Woman Alliance faculty. I am thrilled to have Tamara on board, especially since I have been an admirer since reading her book The Mom Inventors Handbook: How to Turn Your Great Idea into the Next Big Thing several years ago. I look forward to interviewing Tamara so she can share her secrets with the Financial Woman Alliance members.
You may be wondering what this has to do with investing your money. The answer to that is twofold; first, sometimes it makes a lot of sense to invest in yourself. What if Tamara had not invested in her great ideas? Second, one of the topics we explore during the monthly core curriculum calls at the Financial Woman Alliance is how to improve monthly household cash flow. Improving your monthly cash flow can be about looking for ways to expand your income, reduce your expenses, or both, which I suggest for quickest route toward your financial goals.
Tamara inspires us to reach way out of our comfort zones to share our gifts and passions with the world to make it a better place, AND help lead us to our financial goals. All it takes is the first step, then the next, and the next. If you have a passion you have thought about sharing with the world, what is the first step for you?
Over the next few days, notice all of the products and services that have been developed by a woman who took a bold leap to expand and create a product or service, while providing wealth for her family or others. Martha Stewart, Oprah, and Mary Kay immediately come to mind, but there are thousands of others that are not as well known. What gift is waiting inside you to be shared with the world? A financially empowered woman stays open to opportunities to grow both herself and her money.
