The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman’s Guide to Enjoying Wealth and Power, the recently published book co-written by Carol Pepper ’84 and Camilla Webster, has received critical acclaim for its contemporary financial guidance for women.
“The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom offers women guidance in an era of uncharted opportunities and new financial choices,” write the authors on the book’s website. “A woman may set up a foundation in her twenties—when she sells her first company, support her family as the primary breadwinner in her thirties, start a new career in her sixties and remarry in her seventies.”
The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom received praise from The Wall Street Journal and Huff Post Women, and both authors were featured on The Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo.
