So Money - Episode 507

Bobbi Rebell

Author of "How To Be a Financial Grown Up"

Are you a financial grown-up? (I hope you are)…And if you would say so, what was your grown-up MOMENT? Mine was probably when I stopped being on my parents’ family cell phone plan shortly after college. I’m surprised to learn some of my friends are STILL on their family plans. I know it saves money, but if your parents are still paying for your mobile minutes, come on! It’s the principal of the thing.

My guest today spent years capturing financial lessons from some of the world’s most well-known business leaders and she’s documented it in her new book: “How To Be a Financial Grown Up: Proven Advice from High Achievers on How to Live Your Dreams and Have Financial Freedom.”

Bobbi Rebell is an award-winning journalist and leads the U.S. business video unit for Reuters. She’s in charge of anchoring business reports, interviewing top newsmakers and reporting on breaking news.

The book actually features stories from previous So Money® guests including Tony Robbins and Jim Cramer, as well as Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren and entrepreneur and first daughter to be Ivanka Trump. Her financial grown up moment happened while traveling with her mom.
