Hi! I’m Manisha Thakor.
Financial Wellbeing Is My Personal and Professional Passion.
Before you consider someone’s opinions about financial wellbeing, it’s important to know what qualifies them to speak about the topic in the first place.
- I earned my undergraduate degree from Wellesley College, spent a year as a Visiting Student at Oxford University, and received my MBA from Harvard Business School.
- I’m a Chartered Financial Analyst (“CFA”) and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (“CFP”).
- I’ve spent over 30 years working in a wide range of roles in the financial services industry — from investing for institutions and providing financial life planning for individuals to serving on a Fortune 200 independent mutual fund board. For additional details, visit my LinkedIn profile.
I’ve written three Books to help empower women at different ages and stages of their financial wellbeing journey.
My most recent book, MoneyZen, is geared toward mid-career women who are grappling with how to balance ambition around work, money, and accomplishments with a desire to “finding your enough” by living a life rich in both in financial health and emotional wealth.
For women in their 20’s and 30’s embarking on their financial journeys, my first two books are short, fun, financial primers co-written with my fellow Harvard Business School classmate, Sharon Kedar. On My Own Two Feet demystifies personal finance 101, providing readers with real-world tools and a clear roadmap for a lifetime of financial health. Get Financially Naked teaches readers how to manage and talk about money in the context of the early stages of a new relationship.
