5 Sites That Make Finance Sexy

May 13, 2011

Meeeoowww…sexy, sexy finance! For most of us starting along the path of financial savvyness, it can be intimidating to log onto a site like the Motley Fool or Forbes when you don’t know what a dividend is and you’re pretty whatever that is, it’s wayyyy ahead of you when you’re still trying to figure out where you spent your last paycheck!

Here are my recommendations to get started on financial literacy, budgeting and smart spending:




Mint.com:  With tools for budgeting, financial goal setting and charts to see exactly what and where you’ve spent your money- tracking is a breeze!





Money Girl- Quick and Dirty Tips Podcast: In 5 minutes per podcast you could be up to speed on the nagging questions and money issues you’ve dreaded Googling.  Listen online or upload to your iPod…simple.






SuzeOrman.com–  What’s a FICO score and how can you find yours?  Will you need a will and trust and can you generate one online?  Do you need special insurance and how much?

With a free podcast on iTunes, a slew of free online how-to guides and information you can find all of your answers in one place.  Suze is a champion for women’s financial freedom and independence.


Daily Worth–  get bit sized, digestable financial and investing information straight to your inbox.  The emails are written by women, for women and are usually easy to read and can be pretty entertaining!

If I could recommend ONE newsletter that would take the pain out of learning about money? This would be it.





These are just a few of my faves that helped take the pain out of financial literacy.  Whatever you need to learn about your money- you can find it online!  Good luck!
