Girls Gone Wealthy is a labor of love from the two of us– sisters, best friends, personal advisors to one another, and each other’s biggest fan. Our goal of this blog project is simple: to educate ourselves and other women about the world of finance and to make smart decisions for a lifetime of financial freedom. We encourage you to get to know us and to contribute your own thoughts and pieces of financial advice on this blog as well.
