This article is in honor of the women who are out there trying to empower themselves with financial knowledge.  Recently we have had a large increase in female subscribers.  It could not be a better time for women to learn about finance.

Women have always had the ability and skills, perhaps not the time.  Given nature's predisposition for women to bear children and raise them, where did they ever find the time to take care of themselves let alone participate in the finances of their households?

In the new world in which we live, men are now working from home, can share in the household responsibilities and the kids can now freely turn to Dad.  Moms rejoice.

Investing is not for the faint of heart.  There is no such thing as a quick buck but they certainly add up if you do it right.  Nothing can pay more dividends than imbuing yourself with financial knowledge.

Cash is Queen.  Look for companies with a lot of cash.  Take a look at our simplified financial model for AAPL and adjust the inputs to see where you would like to get into the market and if you should choose to exit where you might be comfortable leaving.  This model is provided free as a sample.

Other companies we have chosen to analyze come with our subscription services.

The DIY Investor does not advise on what to invest in or when because just as two people can look at the same picture and see different things, two people can look at the same set of numbers and interpret it differently. 

May the odds be forever in her favor.
