As paOM Bookrt of the inaugural week of this podcast, I’ve got an incredible line up of guests, the who’s who of money. And today’s guest is someone for whom I have tremendous respect and admiration. She is Jean Chatzky, the financial editor for NBC’s TODAY show, an award-winning personal finance journalist and AARP’s personal finance ambassador. Jean is a best-selling author — her most recent book is Operation Money, a free financial guide for military service members and families.  It’s available at operationmoneybook.com.

I’ve known Jean for over a decade and I never took the opportunity to really ask her about her personal financial journey and the experiences that helped shape her mindset about money…until now. In this next half hour, we’ll learn about how Jean sets financial goals and achieves them, her 6-word Money Mantra, the job growing up that – get this – paid her just 25 cents an hour…and so much more.

You can learn more about Jean at JeanChatzky.com and follow her on Twitter @JeanChatzky.

    Hope isn’t a strategy, but how about “hope n change?”

    Jean Chatzky’s father was in television. He taught at Temple much later.

    …and Peter Chatzky has MORE than enough to pay for his child’s college…he’s paying now to send her to a $50,000 a year high school. No surprise this woman knows the Rolling Stone journalist.

    I always love to hear Jean’s take on things. A part of the hard work of being a public figure is conveying your message and sometimes being vulnerable. I appreciate your work. It’s easy for people to take shots while anonymous. It’s also cowardly. Thank you for sharing your work.
