Recession Busting 101
Americans are looking for perspective on how the current financial climate impacts them personally. NBC Financial Editor and a Contributor to the Oprah Winfrey Show, Jean Chatzky shares her insights on the
current economic challenges and how to maneuver through the myriad of financial responsibilities that we all face including 401(k)s, mortgages and interest rates. With plenty of time built in for question and
answer the sought after financial consultant Chatzky, based on her popular XM Satellite radio show, helps audiences understand the big picture, how it applies to their personal finances and plan appropriately in light of the current economic times.

Make Money, Not Excuses
Why aren't we making more money? Doesn't everyone want the financial security that more money provides? Then why aren't we making smarter decisions about our money? The answers to these questions are often more complicated than the questions themselves. Jean Chatzky, author of Make Money, Not Excuses, believes that the reason most people aren't wealthier is that we tend to get in our own way, setting up roadblocks or relying on excuses that thwart us on the way towards achieving our financial goals. These patterns prevent us from earning more, saving and investing for the future and protecting what we've built. In an illuminating discussion about the nature of money and wealth, Chatzky locates the real reasons why people especially women rely on these excuses. She also provides strategies for ridding ourselves of these success-blocking excuses, putting audiences on the path towards real wealth, real financial security and peace of mind.

Pay It Down: From Debt to Wealth on $10 a Day
What's the number one enemy of building wealth? Debt. And getting out of it - cutting debt, changing bad spending habits, saving money - are difficult if you don't understand the basics of personal finance. In this presentation, based on her best-selling book Pay It Down, Jean Chatzky shows you how to eliminate debt from your life, once and for all. Providing an easy to understand, jargon-free blueprint for debt reduction, Chatzky also introduces a simple plan - the idea of saving just $10 dollars a day - as a way to eliminate debt and create capital for saving and investing. Audience are not only shown strategies for locating $10 a day, even in tight budgets, but also come to understand the potential for freedom and peace of mind that comes with finally being out of debt.

Money and Happiness
In her frank, engaging style, Jean Chatzky explains how to œown your money to create a satisfying and comfortable life. She outlines the financial attitudes and behaviors of happy people and shows how anyone can be a part of this group, no matter what you earn. In this presentation, filled with fresh insights and real-life examples, Chatzky reaffirms that finances don't have to be a source of stress, and that living within your means can be extremely rewarding.

The Secrets of Successful Women Investors Even though statistics about women managing their money tend to be all doom and gloom, there's an untold story out there. Some women are actually managing their money spectacularly. Jean Chatzky has spoken to dozens of them, isolated their behaviors and boiled them down to seven secrets. In this presentation she shares those seven secrets and more, in the hopes giving women the confidence to take charge of their investments. (This presentation can be tailored for male and mixed audiences.)
