Becoming a financial expert has been a long and very personal journey! I grew up relying on my father (the 'R' of H&R Block), then my husband, to manage my money. Finances intimidated me. But a devastating financial crisis became a personal wake-up call. 

I knew I had to get smart about money. Working as a journalist, I was hired as a freelance writer to interview financially savvy women. They shared with me a surprising series of insights that enabled them to become smart about money — insights that turned my life around and became the core of my first book, Prince Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money (Penguin).

Once I understood how to manage money, I needed to figure out how to make it. I’d spent my adult life as a chronic underearner. I interviewed over 150 women who made $100,000 or more, to find out how they did it, if I could too, and how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. From this new research came my book, Secrets of Six-Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life (HarperCollins).

For the first time ever, I became a six-figure woman…before I even finished writing the book. I wanted to see if I could teach others to do the same. I began offering Overcoming Underearning® workshops which became the title of my next book, Overcoming Underearning®: A Five Step Plan to A Richer Life (HarperCollins). This book is the result of interviews with hundreds of women who had been through these workshops and successfully achieved higher earnings. I’ve been teaching those workshops for 15 years.

My latest book (due Oct. 7 2014), Sacred Success® : A Course in Financial Miracles, focuses on helping women achieve affluence.  I’m convinced that the main reason women have problems with money (making or managing it) has nothing to do with finances, but their fear or, or ambivalence of, power. Sacred success is a primer on power for women—a tutorial for taking charge of our life, a stand for our truth, and getting paid what we’re worth—in a very different way than men have been doing it for centuries.   

My background in business, my years as a journalist, my Master's Degree in psychology, my  extensive research, and my personal experience with money gives me a unique perspective as the leading authority on women's financial issues.

As an author, motivational speaker and wealth coach who empowers women to live up to their financial and personal potential. You may have seen me on Good Morning America, The View, Extra, The O'Reilly Report, and many times on CNN,MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, PBS, and NPR, as well as the New York Times, and USA Today. I  also travel the country as a popular keynote speaker.
