Fourty percent of mothers are Breadwinner Mothers. You're either a single mom or the major earner for your household. Even still, mothers make 80% of the purchasing decisions for all households.
Jackie Cummings-Koski, a single mom herself, beat the odds and embraced the need to improve her financial literacy. She's the author of Money Letters to my Daughter - winner of the 2013 Excellence in Financial Literacy Award. She’s a director with the Ohio Chapter of BetterInvesting, the nation’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to individual investment education. She’s even received a shout out from Capital Hill for her work in improving financial literacy.
Jackie joined the Midday Money Show to talk about how moms can (and should) be smarter with their money.
