Emily Guy Birken is a former English teacher and respected personal finance writer. She has written four books: The Five Years Before You Retire, Choose Your Retirement, Making Social Security Work for You, and her newest, End Financial Stress Now. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her engineer husband and two high-energy little boys.
Emily is actually a friend and long-time writer/editor at my site, PT Money. If there is a second voice on the site, it’s Emily. I’ve always enjoyed her writing and it’s a privilege to have her write for the site.
In this episode, Emily shares the secret to her financial success, some of her first big financial goals and struggles, her goals for the future, and she even shares some tips for getting started as a freelancer like her. Finally, she shares some great insights from her new book, what’s causing stress in our financial lives and what we can do to lessen that stress.
