B”H As I reflect on the past whirlwind month of Tishri, and look forward to the less intense month of Cheshvan, I imagine sending a letter to G-d. Next year, would He mind changing things around a bit for us Jewish women? *** Dear G-d, After many years – generations, actually – of solid experience managing schedules – our work schedules, our children’s extracurricular activities, family activities, the Holidays, etc.
B”H I get questions on Personal Finance from women all the time, so I decided to put together Five Personal Finance Books Every Jewish Woman Should Read, AND I’m also making a BIG announcement at the end of this post! If you’ve listened to Jewish Latin Princess Podcast, you know that I’ve dedicated numerous episodes to interviews with women who have a voice in the personal finance space, or a
B”H It’s time for an overdue Summer reading re-cap! While I had a very busy summer, I did manage to read a few books. So here’s what accompanied me through the summer months: Feel the Fear and Do it Anyways by Susan Jeffers A must, ladies! I’m not sure why I hadn’t read this before, but I’m sure glad I did! In fact, I’ll probably read it again at some
B”H I am not fascinated with the lives of the royals. Not anymore. As a child and teen, however, I vicariously followed their weddings, babies and scandals captured by the paparazzis. Back then, it wasn’t just the British royals we followed. It was the Spanish ones, too, and their marriages with their royal cousins from Denmark and the Netherlands. While I have no interest in exploring the royals’ lives,
B”H Ever heard of the portmanteau of friend and enemy, “frenemy?” It refers to “a person with whom one is friendly, despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry,” or “a person who combines the characteristics of a friend and an enemy.” We’ve all had one, haven’t we? You’re trying to stick to a budget, and she tempts you with outings to the newest upscale restaurant. You’re about to end an unhealthy
B”H How many times was I told that there was nothing that could be done about my back pain; that there was no obvious cause of my pain, and that I would just have to learn to live with it? So, that’s what I did. The smorgasbord of treatments that I tried over the years include, but are not limited to: pain killers, chiropractic adjustment, Alexander Technique, acupuncture, Chinese cupping
B”H You thought I forgot!? No, but where does the time go? We’re in June already! Kids out of school!? Crazy. But, did you read the book I did tell you about in this post, The Latte Factor? Hmmm, what exactly are you waiting for? By the way it’s SUCH an easy read, it makes for a perfect vacation book to read by the beach. I’m serious! (Oh and I
There’s a true and poignant story of a lost masterpiece discovered amidst the clutter in an eccentric man’s estate. Ernest Onians had spent most of the 1940s and ‘50s rummaging through estate sales across the English countryside, amassing a vast collection. Over the years, his personality evolved from passionate collector to paranoid hoarder. First, he filled his farm to the brim with stuff, and then proceeded to build shacks to
B”H I’m going to push off April’s Reading List for a few more days, and talk to you about a book that I just read, last week, on May 8th and 9th, specifically, because I don’t want you to wait till May’s Reading List to hear about it. It’s called The Latte Factor by renowened author and financial expert David Bach. Here’s why every woman I know should read it
B”H Knee deep into Passover cleaning, trying to rid every nook and cranny of my home from chametz, I also attempt to eradicate the chametz within my soul – the Ego. The Pharaoh that lives inside of us and tries to keep us in shackles, well grounded to our physicality, and distant from our highest self. He’s mighty and strong, arrogant, boastful. Oh, I know him when I see him.
