Today is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
History of International Women’s Day
Since my passion is writing on the topic of women and retirement, I’m feeling inspired to share some of my favorite quotes on women, money and power – a topic that tends to cause social unease in some circles, I’ve noticed.
Since this is a day celebrating women, I’m only quoting women.

Hello there, I’m Patti. I’m a financial coach, retirement planner, and solo-preneur. I’ve worked with hundreds of women, school teachers, and their families to create a plan for a secure retirement. As a result, I learned how, more often than not, women do money differently than men. Yet, the unique financial needs of women have not been well served by the financial services industry. Which is why I’m super passionate about this work. I’m on a mission to teach women how to take charge of their future and their financial security.
