Achieving Financial Independence with Manisha Thakor (Video)

One of International Women’s Day's biggest missions is pushing for women’s equality in the workplace. As Integrative Nutrition visiting teacher Manisha Thakor explains, women still earn $0.77 for every male dollar, spend more years out of the workplace, yet live longer. That’s why it’s so important for women to take responsibility of their financial well-being and make it a priority.

Thakor earned her MBA from Harvard University and founded MoneyZen, a financial advisory firm that works with women and families and aims to redefine our relationship to money. Listen below to hear Manisha’s empowering take on women and money management!

Bloating, cramping, wild mood swings … for some women, getting their periods each month is debilitating. Nicole Jardim, Class of 2010, was once in the same crippling boat.
