  • "Exposing Money Lies." Margie Baldock, author and financial adviser, Queensland, Australia, explodes the myths handicapping women and money, advocating for women to create financial independence through social entrepreneurship.
  • "Bad Holiday Shopping Habits." Randy Padawer, vice president of the credit repair firm Lexington Law, North Salt Lake, Utah, reveals that only half the population saves money for holiday shopping and too many go into debt.
  • "Retire Early." Wes Moss, radio host and certified financial planner, Atlanta, offers advice about how to save enough to retire early.
