Okay, now that the headline got you to keep reading, I want to be clear that there will be no financial advice forthcoming from me. I want to talk to you about something I believe is more important.
On this podcast, Suze talks about why it is important to be patient in all aspects of our lives. Remember, time does heal all wounds and time helps your money grow for the long run.
February is a rough month for good intentions. Surveys show that this is the month when many of us lose the momentum to stick to our New Year’s resolutions.
A new year begins. May it bring you and your loved ones new bursts of happiness. And health. That is all that matters. Right?
I'm back! And I have to tell you, I've learned a lot these past six weeks. I've learned a lot about me and I've learned a lot about how I was making the mistake that I often tell all of you not to mak
One of the most harmful blind spots women have is a tendency to be too generous.
For all the time and effort and worry we put into our financial health, we often overlook how our emotional and physical health interacts with our financial security.

Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up series was a popular choice on Netflix in January. It seemed to inspire so many people to get more serious about de-cluttering their homes.
A year ago, I had the honor of speaking to a large gathering of seriously successful professional women. I enjoy every opportunity to meet with women, field their questions, and hear their stories
**SOLD OUT**The time has never been more right for women to finally take control of their finances.
According to a national survey, more than half of Americans don’t use all their vacation days. I think that’s a bad career move. Vacations aren’t an indulgence, they are a necessity.
Given the looooong hours I know you put into your work, it seems obvious that you should get plenty of satisfaction from all that work. Yet according to Gallup less than one-third of workers are “involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace.”
A recent Gallup poll found that Americans are the most positive about their financial situation in a long time. Fifty two percent reported that they feel good about their finances. That’s a big jump from the 41 percent who felt the same five years ago.
A recent survey reports that 52% of workers who were eligible for paid vacation last year, didn’t use all their available time off.
I hope your friends and family hit the bull’s eye with your gifts this holiday season. But I bet there are many of you who received a gift card (or two, or three) that you don’t have a burning desire to use. As much as you love the sentiment of the gift giver, perhaps you just don’t need-or want-anything from the particular retailer your gift-giver chose.
If you have been making a long list of resolutions for the New Year, my advice is to rip it up.
If you have recently moved to a new job, or one of your 2017 resolutions is to make a move, I want you to be super smart with how you handle your retirement savings account you built at your old job.
The run up to the holidays at the end of the month is an especially great time to teach young children some money and life lessons.
You know that I have often stated that one of the keys to financial freedom is to feel as much pleasure from saving, as you get from spending.
When it comes to planning for a secure retirement I bet you have the major strategies covered: -Invest in your 401(k) or 403(b) up to point of the match? Check -Save in a Roth IRA? Check -Aim to have your mortgage paid off before you retire? Check -Commit to getting plenty of exercise?
Young adults are making a big mistake with their finances. Survey after survey reports that most millennials do not have a credit card. I am wholeheartedly on board with preferring a debit card. But everyone needs to also have a credit card and use it responsibly.
It amazes me that so many homebuyers who spent weeks, if not months, hunting around for the best home, don’t shop around as diligently for the best mortgage. According to the Consumer Financial
I spend a lot of time helping people work out a plan for overcoming a financial challenge. Quite often the bulk of my work is in getting them into the right frame of mind. Financial problems are so stressful it is completely reasonable to feel anxious or depressed. But the first step in working your way out of a financial fix is to convince yourself you control your future and you have the ability to make it a great future.
I am concerned that many of you are banking on a retirement strategy that may not work out. According to a national survey, more than four in 10 Americans say they plan to keep working past the age of 65.
I know you probably can compile a very long list of things you’d rather do than tackle your 2015 tax returns. But please listen to me: procrastination could cost you big time this year, if you anticipate you will be receiving a refund.
When it comes to financial fears, debt is the ultimate four letter word. Whether you have credit card debt, or student loan debt, or want to buy a home or a car that you will finance, you’re dealing with debt. Or more to the point, it’s probably throwing you for a loop. Debt is the major stress point in every household that I’ve worked with.
I don’t know about you, but if I see or hear of one more survey about how panicked most Americans are about their retirement, I will scream. That we have a national fear of retirement preparedness is abundantly clear. What we need now are less surveys and more advice on how to conquer retirement fears. Here are my key steps to start down your road to retirement financial freedom.
Your money challenges are very personal. You may have a large credit card balance gnawing at you, while your best friend is awake at night worrying about being able to keep working through her 60s,
As we turn the corner into a new year, my biggest hope is that peace and happiness is in great abundance for each and every one of you and all those you love. You know from years of hearing me invoke “People First, Then Money, Then Things” that I think there should be no bigger focus than building and nurturing that peace and happiness. But there is also always room to focus on the ways you can continue to build financial security in 2016. The progress you make on taking control of your money will, after all, bring even more happiness and peace into your life.
About half of large employers now offer a high-deductible health insurance plan (HDHP). I know the mere mention of “high deductible” might send your blood pressure skyward, but please listen to me. For many of you, a HDHP may be the smartest health insurance.
It makes me so sad to read reports that many households don’t have even $1,000 set aside to cover an unexpected expense. What’s so sad is that I know that must cause such stress.
As a nation we set aside one day a year to formally celebrate our independence. When it comes to your money my hope is that you will make every day, not just July 4th, a day where you make conscious decisions that will help you build financial independence: a life where you are in control of your money, and not vice-versa.
I have said over and over again that as you enter your late 40's to 50's you should look into buying long-term care insurance. But looking and buying are two different things. You should only purchase LTC insurance if you know that you can easily afford the premium at the time of purchase and all the way until you are 81 (which is the average age of needing LTC).
If you lack the cash to buy a car free and clear, you really need to hear me out on the two worst financing moves you can make. What I am about to tell you can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. And trust me, this is exactly what car dealers and financing companies don’t want you to know:
Spring is in the air! Springtime is about renewal and rebirth, and therefore a perfect to take stock of your life, and take charge of your finances. It’s time to get off the fence and spring clean your finances, ladies!

A recent paper from the influential Research Affiliates investment management firm (more than $140 billion in assets managed) takes the provocative stance that young adults saving for
Listen up my 60 something friends (and those of you heading to that milestone soon) we need to have a talk about your retirement planning.
I am a big believer in karma. But to suggest that good karma should be the lynchpin of managing your career is not just wrong, but dangerous.
Congress’ shenanigans to shut down the government for 16 days this month has many Americans rightfully concerned about their personal finances.“If you don’t want to be affected by the actions—or lack of actions—in Washington, you and you alone are going to have to save yourself,” insists Suze Orman.
Bankruptcy rates spiked during the 2008 recession and many were pretty judgmental toward the millions who couldn't afford to pay their bills. But Suze Orman says bankruptcy is the better option over burying your head in the sand. "When somebody really doesn't have money to pay their bills then they should claim bankruptcy and face it right on and start all over again," says Orman.
The recent rise in housing prices and the decrease in supply in certain parts of the country have some people willing to spend every nickel they have to get into the market now. But Suze Orman warns hopeful homebuyers not to be hasty and end up house poor.

Years ago, after my first book came out and I had made a few television appearances, I was nearly accosted on the street by a very animated woman who kept pointing at me and then exclaimed "I know who you are... you are the... Money Lady!" I've adopted that as a nickname of sorts. I am indeed the lady whose passion is to help people make the most of their money.

That nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage is encouraging progress for those of us who believe that everyone deserves to have basic civil rights. But, even if every state in the country could pass a similar legislation, it would not be enough.
