This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Emily Guy Birken. The two talk about her interesting path into financial writing, how to be more intentional in purchases and investments, and what she has in store for future generations.
In this episode, we discuss:
Emily Guy Birken has worn a lot of hats throughout her career: Temporary tattoo artist. Bookseller. AmeriCorps volunteer. Teacher. Throughout it all, there’s been one constant: She’s a huge money nerd.
In 2010, she turned her excitement about spreadsheets into a career as a Plutus Award–winning freelance writer in the financial sphere. Her varied career combined with her background in education helps her make complex financial topics relatable.
Emily’s work has appeared in HuffPo, Business Insider, Kiplinger’sPersonal Finance, MSN Money, and The Washington Post. She is the author of five books:The 5 Years Before You Retire, Choose Your Retirement, Making Social Security Work for You, End Financial Stress Now, and the newly released Stacked: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management, written with Joe Saul-Sehy.
