"The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman's Guide to Enjoying Wealth and Power"

Sofia Adrogué, a Member of Gray Reed & McGraw, was profiled in the book The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman's Guide to Enjoying Wealth and Power by Carol Pepper and Camilla Webster.

Heralded as an "in depth action plan for women and families" by renowned economist Nouriel Roubini, and "pioneering" by the Wall Street Journal, The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman's Guide to Enjoying Wealth and Power is an essential guide for every woman who wants to build, preserve, and enjoy her wealth.

Building on the insight of Doris Buffett, Lauren Bush Lauren, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Moira Forbes, Sofia Adrogué and more than sixty other prominent women, the book teaches readers to set their own investment policy with the goal of setting a foundation for their life and wealth. Carol Pepper and Camilla Webster deliver candid and empowering guidance for women, tackling the complex issues which surround their financial decisions in today's times. With this book, Pepper and Webster break down a woman's life into seven financial stages, and provide actionable, practical advice on how to manage each stage properly with examples from the leading women in the world on these matters:

  • Wealth building
  • Romance and marriage
  • Motherhood
  • Gathering power
  • Crisis and Loss
  • Retirement
  • Legacy Building

While these themes have always been a part of a woman's life, the dynamics that define them have drastically changed. From the details of setting up a business to essential networking skills; from tax planning and investment choices to achieving a financially balanced relationship with a spouse or partner, the book offers one invaluable pearl of wisdom for each of these key areas. The Seven Pearls helps a woman move beyond outdated financial-planning ideas to harness her power, transforming both her money and her life. Carol Pepper and Camilla Webster offer warm guidance and authoritative answers to the questions facing women that are far-too-often unsolved or worse, unasked.
