In Think Like a Breadwinner, financial expert Jennifer Barrett reframes what it means to be a breadwinner. By dismantling the narrative that women don't—and shouldn't—take financial responsibility to create the lives they want, she reveals not just the importance of women building their own wealth but the freedom and power that comes with it, whether we end up the main earner in a relationship or not. With practical tools, and insights from her own journey, Jennifer encourages women to embrace, and rejoice in, breadwinning like never before.
In 1998, Dominique Mielle joined Canyon Partners—a small, little-known hedge fund. The job was trading distressed securities and high yield bonds, known back then, respectively, as vulture investing and junk bonds.

The Financial Times says that the book, "offers more than a guide about inspirational networking, it brings back the value and the power of human contact." McPherson has spent the past 25 years honing her own communications skills both personally and professionally with Fortune 500 corporations from Dell to Salesforce, Tiffany & Co. to Ann Taylor.
