Amany’s View on Financial Stability:

Financial stability for a woman is like wings for a bird, it gives her freedom and make life great. Independent women can easily rise above the ordinary, be themselves, foster healthy mindset and beat the bias. Amany says, “Working toward financial security means, need to deprive yourself – from the luxury of spending more: you will have to control expenses, impulsive financial decisions and focus on striking a balance in habits. A strong woman may easily do that because she knows it is for the best future”.

Amany share a few ways of striking this balance, she ticks them off as follows:

  • Track your spending
  • Do not spend more than you earn
  • Say no to borrowing to finance your lifestyle
  • Set realistically achievable goals
  • Focus on growing more financial literacy
  • Do not leave money on the table
  • Always take calculated financial risks

These seven ways shall always keep you financially secure.

Amany states, “A woman should keep in mind that the macroeconomy is closely related to the individual financial stability. It matters when you are a part of a very stable financial system. This is because a stable financial system is capable to efficiently allocating resources, assessing, and managing financial risks, maintaining and recreating employment levels close to the economy’s natural rate, and eliminating relative price movements of real financial assets that will affect monetary stability or employment levels. Therefore, for a better financial life, choose to live in a financially stable economy or at least prefer it. It will allow you to be a well-equipped woman entrepreneur (should you choose to be), who helps in opening newer growth avenues bringing about positive outcomes for the economy”.

A Woman Must Target Financial Independence:

Amany believes every woman should aim at sustaining financial independence and growing her wealth because it builds self-esteem, boosts confidence, makes her self-reliant, enjoy her own individual identity and prevent abuse as an independent woman can easily walk out of an abusive relationship. If a woman is not financially independent, she will find it difficult to make her own choices and decisions because those who control her finances will control her choices. When a woman is responsible for her own finances, she is free to choose for herself.

“As a woman, you deserve and should earn your own money, be financially be independent as a lady and you will be grateful” – Says Amany Elmahy.
