Damn. Profiles are way harder than I thought (how you can help)

Hey everyone, the profiles on female iwillteachyoutoberich readers that I’ve been working on are a lot harder than I thought. I’ve spoken to a bunch of young women on the phone in the last few days, collecting their stories and learning about what they have to say. But as I’m writing them up, I’m just not satisfied with how they’re turning out — especially in light of the many comments with different views about how I should approach this.
So these are taking a little longer than expected. I hope to start these profiles next week. If you have some time, here’s how you can help:
- Help with the profiles. If you have experience writing profiles or interviews, help turn my raw interview notes into easy-to-read profiles
- Research / statistics. Add a comment here with research on women and money. That way, it can be less about Ramit’s handwavy theories and more about actual real research on women and money (e.g., here)
- Write a guest post with your thoughts! Leave a comment with your idea and if it’s good, I’ll get in touch
