When She Makes More with @Farnoosh Torabi – MPSOS177
Known for contributing to The Today Show and Money Magazine as well starting her own podcast, So Money, Farnoosh Torabi has been struggling with the question of how to traverse the stereotypes of women who make more than their men.
Her most recent book: “When She Makes More: 10 Rules for Breadwinning Women”, is written for the working woman who earn more than their spouse. While the financial nerd in me appreciates all the statistics and studies included in the book, I also think men will benefit as much by reading “When She Makes More” as their female counterparts.
Here are some of the questions Farnoosh answers during our conversation:
- Are the old fashion rules of a man bringing home the bacon wrong?
- What do you see as the major cultural or economic shift that caused this world to change from men working outside of the home and women working at home but not in a traditional J.O.B.?
- How has this effected the family unit?
- Do gender roles still play a part in a household where she makes more?
Finally, Farnoosh tells us the first step a couple can take, when she makes more. to balance the relationship and make it not so weird.
