What Women Really Want? (finance)

REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle

MY RECOMMENDATION: YES...with reservations

AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: What Women Really Want?, D. Bruce Johnston


BLOG DESCRIPTION: As the world increasingly turns to social media for solutions, information and expression, women are turning to BLOGS according to “The 2009 Women in Social Media Study”. Why, is described in this article.

MY REVIEW: This blog is really a bait and switch. The title makes you think that you're going to get a female financial advisor telling you how to save and invest your money, and learn from social media, but that's not the case. The author is Bruce Johnson, President and CEO of Advisolocity. (Indeed, I read somewhere that of all the fnancial advisors and planners out there, only 5% or so are women. Of course the big one that everyone knows about is Suze Orman.)

Anyway, so whether you're a guy or a gal, and trying to find out if this social media craze is worth getting into , give this blog a try.
