Mary Waring is an independent financial adviser and the founder of Wealth For Women, specialising in financial advice to women going through divorce.

She is both a Chartered Financial Planner and a Chartered Accountant, being one of only a handful of advisers in the whole for the UK with this high level of qualification.

Mary is passionate about changing the way women think about finance. Too many women stick their head in the sand and ignore it. Or...rely on a man to sort it for them.

Mary's catchphrase is "A Man is not a Financial Plan".

At a very early age Mary was aware that her mother was stuck in a very unhappy marriage since she was not financially savvy and had no income or assets in her own right. Her mother impressed upon her the need to not be dependent on a man for money.

She has taken that message to heart and has now written a book to allow other women to gain the knowledge she has obtained over her 25 years of study and work in the finance industry.

Oh and by the way...Mary is not a man hating harridan! She has been married to Tony for 20 years.

Product Description

Book Description

Do you want to be more confident about your finances?

Do you want to be a wealthy woman?

“Wealthy” will mean different things to different women. It doesn’t necessarily mean “rolling in it” and having so much money that you’ll enter The Times ‘rich list’. It may simply mean you feel confident you will have enough money to do the things that you plan to do in the future, no matter how lavish or frugal a lifestyle you lead.

This book will guide you on your journey to become a wealthy woman by showing you how taking small steps on a regular basis can lead to a significant increase in your wealth.

It’s easy to be wealthy just as it’s easy to be poor. There’s very little difference in the way you can become either. You are in a position where you can improve your wealth. Whatever your dreams and aspirations around money there is nothing to stop you moving towards those dreams

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By C. Bozkurt on 14 Jan. 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is on my favourite list and I'm recommending it constantly.

It provides good solid information on how to create your own financial security. It helps you to understand the basics and how to get a 'grip' of your financial situation. Slow and steady wins the race and this is what this book is about. It explains what you need to do in easy to understand language, it gives lots of examples and has a number of exercisers for you to carry out. It doesn't overwhelm or baffle you with jargon but motivates you to start getting your finances in order and save even more than you might do already or at least start saving if you haven't already done so.

If you are in your 20s it really is an essential read as it will help you to set-up your financial security by saving little and often. If you are in your 50s it's a must read. It's never to early to start getting your financial security in place and your finances under control.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As you may have noticed, this book has a hierarchy of no less than 3 titles. That suggests to me someone who really wants to get their message across. The main title and first subtitle give a good indication of Mary Waring's sense of fun and that this is not going to be a dreary and heavy-going read. It is perhaps the sub-sub-title though - `A Woman's Guide to Achieving Financial Security'- that gives the best indication of the book's contents.

Mary Waring isn't just a highly qualified independent financial adviser, specialising in advice to women going through divorce. The book is dedicated `to my darling mum, who unwittingly and unknowingly provided the inspiration for this book' and I get the sense that Mary's expressed desire to help other women is heartfelt and that in writing this book, she genuinely has women's financial best interests at heart.

The book provides a good and sound basic introduction to money matters. The author explains in a straightforward and easy to understand way just what we need to know and what steps we need to take in order to take control of our finances.

Mary uses the true-to-life stories of Savvy Sarah and Not-so-savvy Nicola as a backdrop to her advice and to show how the decisions we make about money in our 20s, 30s and 40s impact our lifestyle and financial well-being when we're older. I think this Savvy Sarah / Not-so-savvy Nicola thread worked well and it was this that really brought home to me how important it is to wake up, take financial responsibility and make wise choices.

There are sections on net worth; debt; savings and interest; tracking expenditure; tax, pensions and ISAs; and coping with major `wealthy woman wobbles' such as losing your job or getting divorced.

Great read, easy to follow and very informative.
Really liked the the fact the author uses no jargon and her writing style is very down to earth.
A lot of great tips to take hold of your finances and to plan for your future. It doesn't matter if your in your 20s or 50s, anyone can relate to this book. Already putting steps in to action and love the net worth/income and expenses spreadsheet at the back for planning my incomings and outgoings.

Format: Paperback
I decided that 2014 would be the year I finally got grown up and clear about my finances. I came across this book and it is perfect for what I needed. I read it all in one go and now I am going back through it to do the exercises. I have started logging all my spending on an App. It's amazing and scary to see how things mount up! There is lots of great info but it is very easy to understand and I do not feel overwhelmed at all. I just feel I have been given a reality check and the steps to start now and that it's not too late to get control of my finances and prepare for my future.

Format: Paperback
I'll admit that finance is not my favourite topic to read about. I would much prefer having my nose stuck in to some novel or book about marketing! But I knew it was a topic I had to get more savvy about. Mary made the whole subject of savings, pensions and investments easy to digest ... and without being patronising which could have been so easy to be when writing a book on finance for women. There were lots of practical suggestions on what to do next, which I liked too. So rather than just giving me lots of info, I felt I could go away and take action on what needed to be done.

Format: Paperback
This book is one that every woman needs to have regardless of her age. Securing your future financially is something that women often do not consider, particularly when you're young and think you are invincible. But the years go quickly and this book offers solid advice as to how you can secure your future financially. Not only does it give financial advice to young women, it offers good advice for women at all stages of their lives.

Finance can often be a dry subject but this book is written in plain English without the use of jargon. It takes the fear out of financial planning.

Format: Paperback
Having separated from my partner recently I was forced to make a new year’s resolution early to get control of my finances and secure a financial future for my new life that would allow me to live the life I desired now and as I planned for my retirement.

I had become complacent about money over the years and it wasn’t until I read some really valuable hints and tips and used the templates provided in this book that I really began to make some positive changes towards my attitude and behaviour about money and how I managed it. I appreciate it will not happen overnight but what this book has done for me is it has changed my attitude about spending and it is instilled some sensible behaviours in me so I can manage money much better than in the past.

I am proud to say I am now a saver for the first time in my life and I have paid off my credit cards which had exorbitant interest rates attached to them. I have since bought this book for 2 other friends and they have also got great value from it.

When I went through the separation with my partner I really had to learn to manage my own finances day to day and also to plan my financial future on one income so this book was so valuable in helping me to get on track with my financial journey to retirement and beyond!

Thank you Mary Waring!
