In Goddesses Deserve The Gs (part of The Goddess Guides to Being A Woman self-help series), International Bestselling Author Ava Miles delves into the bugaboos many women have with money.
"How many jokes have the same tired punch line about women being bad with money?" Ava asks. Women have more opportunities than ever before to make money and live abundantly, but so few of us are cashing in. We've got tons of gender issues facing us, and there's an epic disconnect between our sense of self-worth and believing we deserve the Gs.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Money is still considered one of the biggest reasons for divorce. We're hesitant to talk about money in our intimate relationships; we're afraid to ask for a raise; we're even ignorant about our own financial situation; or we've given away the power to someone else. "The time has come to become a goddess moneymaker," Ava says, while helping us forge a new relationship with ourselves when it comes to money and material abundance.
This guide is for:
• Women who want more money and abundance.
• Women who don't know how to talk about money.
• Working women who know they are making less than they deserve.
• Stay-at-home mothers who need a fresh perspective on their economic contribution.
• Wives who have turned all financial decisions over to their husbands.
• Widows who are learning how to take care of their financials.
• Single mothers who feel everything is on their shoulders.
• Single women who want to head off money issues in a relationship.
• Mothers who want their kids to be good with money.
• Women who want to be financially independent.
• Women who want a better life for themselves and their family.
Become the goddess moneymaker you were born to be. Believe you're worth all the abundance you set your sights on.

Know Your Worth/Live Long and Prosper Sometimes, we as women forget our own worth. I could see this as an immensely helpful book for survivors of domestic and/or relationship violence; anyone going through a divorce; those who need to learn to speak up in order to claim and receive compensation (recognition, not just finances) for our efforts; and for those who are considering consulting, entrepreneurship, and/or restablizing after a job or career loss or a sudden financial kick to the gut. One of my favorite lines from Amy Tan's Joy Luck Club actually points that out: never forget your worth. Women are still paid $0.70 on the $1 in the U.S. because we're capable of bearing children, and for a myriad of other reasons based largely upon our biology. This could have been a bitter fest kind of a text, but it was quite the opposite. As usual, Ava Miles pens with love, compassion, knowledge, and empathy. Deserve the Gs is all about retraining our brains to reclaim our own value as people who deserve to experience prosperity in all forms--we all know people with plenty of money who aren't happy, as well as the opposite end of the spectrum. Even today, all over the world, women still don't receive what they're really worth, regardless of their work---as homemakers and caregivers as well as those who work outside of their own homes. When we say yes to our own needs, we also begin saying yes to having those needs acknowledged and met both at home and away from home. A big take away from this book is recalling what we've learned about money during our upbringing and helping ourselves let go of the negative and/or unhelpful messages that came along with it in order to free ourselves to dance joyously toward getting what we deserve.

This book hits the nail right on the head in so many areas for me. Money and self-worth are touchy subjects for many people and the cause of unhappiness a lot of the time. Reading this guide will make you stop and think and possibly help you make better choices and speak up for yourself. I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
