In the end, it is practical advice (words of tactical wisdom, that is) that gets us moving, motivated, and changing. Psychologist Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office (2004), recognizes that fact by focusing on 75 "female" money mistakes – and how to correct them. For sure, there are a handful of different actions – getting in the money game, taking charge, spending wisely, learning money basics, saving and investing for the future, managing financial work potential, and playing it smart – that are then segmented into errors, no matter what the root causes. "Taking charge," for instance, admonishes those who don't trust their intuition and who let a deadbeat dad skirt his responsibilities, among others. Each reprimand, though, is accompanied by at least two coaching "how to overcome" tips and enlivened with client stories and personal anecdotes. Here, at last, is the commonsense retort to that old wives' tale that it's just as easy to marry a rich man as a poor one.
