Emily Guy Birken

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:

  • What shifted her career from education to financial writing, and why it worked so well
  • Tips on how not to spend money
  • How to be more intentional in your purchases
  • What questions to ask yourself when deciding to buy
  • Why she has so many opportunities to help women financially
  • Why it’s so important to find the right people to assist in financial crisis
  • What Emily has in store for the future

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.
