Episode 73: Money Girl’s, Money Moves
Guest: Laura Adams
Laura Adams is a nationally recognized personal finance expert. She’s the author of many books and audiobooks, including Money Girl’s Smart Moves to Grow Rich a fun, comprehensive guide to personal finance. This book is written in simple language to help readers digest and understand the terminology, tactics, and attitudes that create a foundation for smart financial decisions. From accounting and real estate to owning a floor covering business and a COO for a small company, Laura’s had an extremely diverse career. She never dreamed of becoming a personal finance writer. She’s always been fascinated by the management side of money as she was one of those teenagers that begged her parents for her own checking account at the age of 12 or 13. Eventually, she received an MBA from the University of Florida in Gainesville, becoming a student of finance through books, gurus, and advisers. This is when she became interested in writing and decided to write a blog about the various topics she had learned in her MBA program. Around this time, Laura fell in love with podcasts and took it upon herself to start her own show in 2007. Since then, Laura has podcasted every week. The following year, she was invited to join the Quick and Dirty Tips Network as the host of the Money Girl Podcast and blog. Laura’s latest book, Debt-Free Blueprint: How to Get Out of Debt and Build a Financial Life You Love, launched this year with detailed advice, strategies, helpful examples, and overlooked programs to eliminate debt and the stress that comes along with it. Laura focuses on financial confidence, being confident in your ability to use your knowledge and accomplish your goals.
