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.
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 neuroeconomics and behavioral psychology has revealed, women are also uniquely qualified to handle them. In her frank, often funny, 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.

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.
