Women with money and women in power are two uncomfortable ideas in our society. ~~Candace Bushnell
Do you know the origin of the word “money”? It might surprise you.
The English word for money came from a Roman goddess, whose name was Juno Moneta. In ancient Rome, she was the guardian of finances. Her temple became the first treasury. It was in her temple that the earliest coins were minted.
Think about what this means. As women, money and power are our birthright. Don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise!
