Can you really start from nothing and become truly secure financially? In this fascinating and interactive keynote, Jean Chatzky asks the questions: What’s the difference between you and Warren Buffett? Between you and your boss? Or between you and your successful neighbor? What do the financially comfortable have that you don’t? And how do you get it? Based on her most recent book that includes groundbreaking research on the self-made wealthy, Jean reveals the traits and habits of those who have moved from the lowest economic strata to the highest. Then she helps audiences take a look at where they are now and offers simple strategies for helping them get to where they want to go. In this optimistic and empowering presentation, she helps people see that they themselves have the power to determine their own financial future and find freedom in even the most difficult of economic times.
After 20 years covering the world of real people and their real money, Jean Chatzky knows there are some universal (and nagging) questions audiences have about their money. Do I pay for college or retirement? What do I do about my older parents? How do I rebuild a sagging portfolio? Is it possible to raise kids who will be financially independent? And what in heaven’s name can I do about that credit score? In this presentation that can be tailored specifically for the needs of your group—and the questions of the day—Jean will answer the questions she knows you have then conduct a Q&A that can include a money makeover or two for a member of your audience.
As a mother of two teens, Jean Chatzky knows what parents want—kids who grow up to earn their own money and live independently (i.e., not on the family couch)! After conducting a dozen focus groups with middle-schoolers around the country for her upcoming Not Your Parents’ Money book (September 2010), she also knows what skills kids need in order to get there. In this fun and lively presentation, Chatzky shows how teaching responsibility, setting limits and living by financial example can all combine to put your kids on the path to personal financial success.
Jean Chatzky’s common-sense advice offers people control over their lives and their futures by showing them how to get control of their finances.
An expert on everything from debt elimination and retirement planning to mortgage options and long-term care insurance, Jean Chatzky takes the complicated world of personal finance and makes it accessible to all. In doing so, she details a variety of wise and inspiring money management and investment strategies—giving you options no matter how much money you have. Chatzky—financial editor for NBC’s Today, a frequent Oprah contributor and New York Times best-selling author—is one of the media’s most recognized and liked money experts. Dubbed a "reassuring guru" by People magazine, she specializes in providing the sort of expert financial advice that is not only entertaining and interesting to listen to—but that can be absorbed and used to change lives. Her latest book is Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security.
