No More Frogs to Kiss
99 Ways to Give Economic Power to GirlsBook - 1995
A practical and inspirational guide for helping the girls of today become the economically empowered women of tomorrow -- featuring a foreword by Gloria Steinem. For Parents, teachers and anyone eager to help girls avoid the traditional paths that lead to economic dependence on men, Joline Godfrey has created No More Frogs to Kiss, the essential handbook for arming the next generation of women with the knowledge and experience they need to ensure their economic independence. The guide contains 99 entertaining "action plans" to teach girls how to become financially empowered. They will learn to find deals in the marketplace, use business vocabulary intelligently, start a small home business more profitable (and fun) than baby-sitting and develop the habit of saving for the future. Accompanying each activity are provocative statistics about women and money, as well as stories of girls and women who have succeeded in their own business ventures. Also included is a resource section that provides suggestions for further reading, a directory of organizations and a glossary of business terms. "At last! A book of practical, simple and enjoyable activities that will give the girls and young women in your life the opportunity to learn that business is both fun and profitable." -- Alice Ball, President, Girls Incorporated
