Globalization, or the connection of businesses around the world, could prompt digital currency like bitcoin to become the global standard instead of the U.S. Dollar.
I am a queer/fat/disabled/non-binary person, but I am white and tend to present myself well. There are not many people in STEM or specifically IT/Tech who have similar experiences to mine
Our affiliate Ellevest is working on a new initiative to change the way women work within our financial system.
“Managing distractions is my BIGGEST challenge. I'm a huge fan of putting in headphones and ignoring everyone to get my work done. The best way for me to manage it is to focus on what I'm doing well and not feeling guilty for taking a break. I try to live by 30 minutes straight of hard work, and then a five-minute break to go get water or coffee or check my phone.”
Today things are going to get a real at She Spends. We’re talking about mental illness, and the financial stressors it can cause. While we don’t get deep on trauma, this post could be triggering. Just a warning before you dive in!
We have awesome news! ModCloth selected us as one of four finalists in its Giving Contest. The contest winners receive $4,500 in grant money to grow their projects, which would be huge for She Spends.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the IA&A at Hillyer for our event with the Judy Greenwald Fund. It was so cool to meet so many women from our D.C. community in real life! It felt serendipitous that one of the pieces of art on the wall was called “Women in Labor,” which featured women working. For those who were unable to attend, we wanted to share a brief recap.
As we say goodbye (and good riddance) to 2017, we want to revisit our most-read stories. Here are our greatest hits.
Hey She Spends fam! Alicia checking in here from freezing cold Western Pennsylvania. I know we promised that we would be taking advantage of our vacation days this week, but I wanted to pop in to share some exciting news about our fundraiser for Bottomless Closet.
December was an exciting month at She Spends HQ. We announced our Betterment event, ran some of my favorite pieces, including a series on cryptocurrency and an interview with Veronica Dagher. We’re launching a new blog feature, where the three women behind She Spends share some of our favorites each month. Check out the first post below!
My fiancé Sean and I both subscribe to Scott’s Cheap Flights, a service that sends email alerts about flight deals. We didn’t end up using a flight deal from the service, but the emails helped to spark ideas for traveling and give a baseline on the average flight cost to certain areas. Because I work for a public school, I can only take long vacations over holidays. When we found an affordable flight to Beijing ($100 under the average cost) scheduled over Thanksgiving, we had to jump on it. We added Hong Kong to the itinerary for a few hundred more dollars. We spent $762.65 per person for the flights through JetBlue and its affiliates, Hainan and Hong Kong Airlines, which included two free checked bags and several meals. On the flight back, we ended up having to pay $15 each to sit together since our flight was changed and we didn’t know that we needed to re-assign our seats.
To visit China for more than three days as a U.S. citizen, you need a special visa, which you obtain by visiting the Chinese consulate in New York. Sean’s brother Dan lives in New York and went to pick these visas up for us, which cost $200 per person. The visas allow for multiple entries and last for 10 years; we are already planning a trip back!
Last month we asked you, our readers, what we’re doing well and where we can improve. We collected your responses and met for a weekend to define where we want She Spends to go (face masks and tacos included). We’d like to share some awesome stories, criticism and love from our readers. Check it out!
We’re so excited to announce a special promotion for the month of November. Our big goal for the month is to broaden our subscriber base, which allows She Spends to grow beyond the awesome community we already have created together.
This past weekend, the She Spends team met up in Brooklyn to redefine our values and focus our mission through the end of our first year. In addition to making major upgrades to She Spends, we worked out our mission and values. Check them out!
Hello my fellow witches! Welcome to Libra season. It’s a new month, and that means a new book for #SheSpendsReads. I’ll be reading Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner? by Katrine Marçal.
Hey babes! How did your September go? I loved reading Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars by Nathalia Holt this month.
Women, especially those in the wellness space, find it difficult to discuss money. So we’re fusing our love of yoga with our love of personal finance to bring you two events at Shaktibarre in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

You’ve probably heard by now that one of the major credit reporting agencies, Equifax, was hacked. And you’re probably worried about what you can do to protect your credit. After all, social security numbers, birthdays and addresses belonging to roughly half of all Americans were stolen in one of the largest hacks of all time.
