Smooth Sailing With Suze Orman

June 03, 2013 at 11:03 AM

“Every morning when I’m in Florida, I look at the water and think about this vast body that represents the mystery of life. And I think about money on the same terms, as something liquid and flowing, something that experiences ups and downs just like the tides. Water is my inspiration for managing money.”

Insightful, almost poetic, words by Suze Orman, the U.S.’s most famous expert on personal finance and a well-known television personality. Born on the South Side of Chicago, Orman began her working life as a $400-a-month waitress before becoming a financial advisor and then founding a multi-million dollar consultancy empire. Today she is a household name, thanks in large part to the success of her CNBC television show. So popular is she, in fact, that Orman has been listed twice as one of the “Time 100,” Time magazine’s list of the world’s most influential people, as well as one of the "World's 100 Most Powerful Women” by Forbes magazine.

The author of nine bestselling books and one of the world’s most sought-after motivational speakers, Orman offers simple yet sound advice on navigating today's turbulent financial times. And this she often does in her uniquely accessible and entertaining style aboard her 53-foot Azimut Flybidge as part of her web series “Staying Afloat.”
