10. Beyonce speaks up on Financial Independence

Probably the best quote of the whole article is Beyonce pointing the truth out with accuracy. She has very skillfully with the best example demonstrated how money gives the power to men to define what they want to be true. Be it the meaning of freedom and independence or social stereotypes. They are all set of men who are in financial power. This quote very accurately defines why women must be independent of anyone when it comes to finances.

Beyonce said, “I truly believe that women should be financially independent of their men. And, let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And, men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”

You are your own person and standing freely on your feet is your primary goal. So dream about financial independence for life and not just a single wedding day. Remember to be self-sufficient and earn your own money. And educate yourself well to invest in the right places. The most important thing, you must tell yourself is, your money is your money and you are not obliged to spend it on anyone. So save for yourself.
