Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security
Money is simple -- but people make it complicated. Based off her latest book, Today Show financial editor Jean Chatzky shares the essential rules people need to build wealth and gain the financial security they are looking for.
Your Money and Your Life: Where Do You Go From Here?
It’s a whole new ballgame. From the way you save and invest for today to how you plan and protect yourself for the future, the rules of the financial world have changed forever. Today Show Financial Editor Jean Chatzky had a seat at the table for the shake-up and she’ll tell you – in plain English – about the moves you need to make now to insure a life of financial comfort for you and your family.
Women and Money
Anyone who tells you women don’t need financial advice specifically for them is wrong. Women, whether they’re the caretakers, the breadwinners, or both, face a unique set of financial challenges. But as a decade of research into neuro-economics and behavioral psychology has revealed, women are also uniquely qualified to handle them. In her frank, often funny, but always compassionate way, Jean Chatzky takes every audience of women through the steps they need to take today to live comfortably (and worry-free) tomorrow.
What The Country’s Wealthiest, Most Successful People Do Differently
Why is it that some people seem to move relatively easily from a paycheck-to-paycheck life into financial comfort or wealth while others get stuck or worse, fall back? Today Show Financial Editor Jean Chatzky reveals the findings of her proprietary study of 5,000 people that shows wealthy, successful people have both habits and personality traits that less successful individuals are missing. With candor and humor, she’ll show audiences how they can get their own dose of this secret sauce.
