Louis Orazio II, CFP ®, CFA, marks his publishing debut with the release of “Strength in Numbers: A story about overcoming societal norms and achieving financial unity” (published by Archway Publishing), a financial fiction that addresses the financial needs and challenges women face in the boardroom and the living room.

Structured like the show “This Is Us,” the intertwined stories follow several characters as they manage their money and their relationships through life’s inevitable obstacles. The first story follows Kate Becker whose husband recently left her. Through her, readers will not only learn about the financial implications of divorce and how to protect themselves in the event of one, but also learn how Kate overcomes her fears and stands on her own two feet. The second story follows newlywed couple Jane and Rick Meriweather. Jane, a high achieving lawyer, is presented with a promotion at the same time she is considering having children. Her story depicts the struggle women face when deciding between career progression and family planning. The third story follows Simon Becker (son of Kate) and his wife Rachel. Simon left his high-earning profession to care for their newborn while Rachel continued her job as an actuary. As they follow the couple’s unconventional household dynamic, readers also learn about financial planning topics related to families with young kids.

“Society needs to embrace the financial education and empowerment of women as they achieve new heights of income and wealth,” the author states. “Women are our economy's greatest secret weapon and a supportive spouse, family, or community can make all the difference. Women are challenged differently than men when it comes to money, and as they earn and control more wealth, their education is paramount to our society's economic growth.”

When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, Orazio answers, “Finance does not have to be scary, especially if you surround yourself with supportive individuals. Women need to be supported by men, and vice versa. If households succeed, our greater economy succeeds.”
