Business and Personal Financial Planning with Dawn Starks at SimpleMoneyPro.com

I have been a financial planner for over twenty years.  During that time, I have read just about every personal finance book under the sun.  Why do I torture myself so?  In the early days of my practice, I hosted a call-in radio show in Asheville, NC, called Money Matters.  For five years I spent an hour each Saturday morning discussing every financial topic imaginable.  I didn’t want to become boring, so I would read others’ works on personal finance to find new and different ways to explain the same old concepts.  Now I just read them for fun.

Women make up almost half of the workforce, are the sole or co-breadwinner in half of American families with children, and are graduating from college at higher rates than men.
