Financial Stability For Women On Their Own Terms

There are many factors that determine one’s financial stability - living debt-free, savings, having a plan for long-term wealth, budgeting, insurance, etc. The path to financial stability is hard enough. Not everyone has the privilege to achieve it with ease.


An entrepreneur who has been working towards a stable state of finances for two years will get frustrated when the topic of money comes up. She works hard trying to maintain her business but she doesn’t get to enjoy the results of doing the work she loves. This is because of the lack of financial stability. She can’t go back to her day job because that increased her stress, caused burnout and stirred up issues like depression and fatigue.


At the end of the day, she feels the tiredness of being alone, unsupported and not enough because of the lack of support from her family, and unable to make time for the people and things she cares about.


Financial instability affects women differently than from men, where society will crucify women for choosing work over her family but will not do the same for men. The addition of societal and cultural stigma against women who put their careers ahead of their family makes it harder for women to find happiness in what they do.


It becomes all about the money. It’s commonplace for all their income to go back to the family, so they never reach the stage of financial stability they’re after.


The entrepreneur’s story sounds familiar because it is a situation that many women find themselves stuck in. Money is the driving factor that motivates people to start looking for work. While that is a healthy reason to get a job, it should not be allowed to be the only driving factor.


Some limiting beliefs around money are:

  • Life is horrible without money

  • I will be stuck in this situation (financial instability) forever

  • I need money to feel secureThere are many factors that determine one’s financial stability - living debt-free, savings, having a plan for long-term wealth, budgeting, insurance, etc. The path to financial stability is hard enough. Not everyone has the privilege to achieve it with ease.

What people need to understand is that this is a limited way of thinking, where it causes fear around money and your financial future. You’ll end up stretched too thin, splitting time and attention between work and other duties and end up settling for a job that pays well but stresses you out. Your dreams are left behind as you prioritise financial stability and do not have the confidence to pursue what you love.


Factors affecting financial stability:


When you have a day job that gives you financial stability but does not makes your soul sing, you’re not really doing yourself any favours. It will help you overcome financial problems, pay off debts and in the future help you be self-employed - but the latter is a big “If” that is affected by many factors that are piled up against women.

It’s difficult to quit because societal upbringing celebrates overworking, which still results in stories and limiting beliefs about money, success and being good enough. You may know in your soul what you really want to do but the roadblocks of your ingrained beliefs spring up fear and doubt that is stubborn and tricky to move past.


Glass ceilings and cliffs, exploitation, pre-determined bias and sexual harassment are women’s enemies in the workplace. These enemies sometimes follow them home, where they face emotional and physical abuse at the hand of their families.


Their work is constantly undermined. The mindset of “Women belong in the kitchen”, is what they grow up with, what is expected of women and what they have to oppose if they want to have a life for themselves with independence and financial stability that is not tied to a man by birth, marriage, loans or any other means.
