As I’ve mentioned, financial wisdom is about as exciting to me as tapioca pudding or reading a phone book. 

But it’s just so important for a woman to have a handle on her finances, especially in the years beyond 50.  This past year, my husband and I have put this at the top of our to do list. 

My search for financial wisdom promptly delivered me to the buy button on Amazon for Peggy Doviak’s 52 Weeks to Prosperity – Ask Peggy Doviak: What Your Accountant, Banker, Broker & Financial Adviser Might Not Tell You.

This book is awesome.  It’s simple and easy to understand  It offers actionable plans. It sets you up for success. 

You probably remember Peggy showering us with wisdom in her recent posts about when we can afford to retire and how to curb holiday spending. These happen to be two of our most popular blogs on the site! And for good reason. They are just chocked full of nuggets of wisdom.
