Finances are stressful. After all, nearly half of U.S. adults experience financial stress on a daily basis. Women experience significantly more than men, reporting as many as 201 days of financial stress each year compared to 159 days by men. The reason for the difference may surprise you – it’s not their wealth. It’s their mindset. It’s optimism.
Recently, Frost Bank conducted research to better understand this connection between optimism and financial well-being and uncovered a staggering gap between optimists and pessimists. Optimists are seven times more likely to exhibit financial health, and men are more likely to have an optimistic mindset.
In this session, Ericka Pullin, Senior Vice President of Research and Strategy at Frost Bank, will explore the differences in behavior between optimists and pessimists and discuss how one can learn to become an optimist. We’ll take a closer look at how everyone, especially women, can help bridge the financial gap by approaching their finances with optimism.
