Mary Kay on Financial Independence

“I’ve read that women in the executive suite have a higher-than-average divorce rate. Some people believe that a successful businesswoman must neglect her family for her career. I don’t believe this. rather, I suspect that many ‘underemployed’ women remain in unhappy marriages because of financial constraints. Once they obtain higher-paying jobs, a sense of financial independence gives them options.” – Mary Kay Ash
