An amazing thing happened while I was reporting this story. Typically, when I've brought up any kind of subject involving money with my friends, they'll quickly divert the conversation to something that feels less intrusive, or shut it down altogether. But this time around when I set out to learn what kinds of money goals women are setting for 2019, I didn't just get an enthusiastic answer from every woman I asked — I got answers that made me think women are officially done with the idea that talking about money is inappropriate or tacky.
Realizing that women's attitudes and goals around their money are changing for the better, Bustle is excited to join forces with Visa and their "Money Is Changing" initiative, which is all about encouraging an open and honest conversation surrounding women and money. To keep the momentum rolling into an even more financially savvy new year, I tapped 10 women in their 20s and 30s to find out how they were planning on changing their own money conversation in 2019. Read on to check out their next-level goals about saving, investing, retirement, and more, then let yourself feel inspired to make 2019 your year to change your own money game.
