Advance praise for Money Makeovers:
"Fear of financial planning is the last frontier for women to cross today. As Chris Hayes points out, women already own one-third of the nation’s small businesses and 60% earn their own income. Hayes gives them the motivation and the method to take the next logical step–to manage their own hard-earned money! He’s playing my song."
–Muriel Siebert, President, Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc.
"Money Makeovers is sobering and encouraging–an excellent combination of truth-telling and practical help. It also is serious business for a serious subject. I have been especially concerned about the financial vulnerability of women in retirement, and Money Makeovers can help women avoid poverty and dependency in their later years and enhance their ability to pursue their goals for personal growth.
"This book is comprehensive and detailed, yet both UNDERSTANDABLE and HELPFUL! It is especially useful in pointing out the particular financial pitfalls women face, especially in retirement. I would encourage women of all ages, but especially those in their forties and fifties, to plan for their financial futures. This book helps them to do so. PS: Men, too, will find this book helpful–not only as caring spouses but also for themselves."
–Walter G. Hoefer, Director, New York State Office for the Aging
"A wise and wonderful book that every woman should read. Although I wish that I’d read it 20 years ago, I do plan to use this guide to get my financial life in order."
–Heather Watts, Contributing Editor, Vanity Fair
"In our business we see too many women who, on the loss of their husband, have no idea how to handle the assets they have been left. They accept a minimal return on their investments and are forced to go to work to make up the difference. Money Makeovers could make a substantial difference to their quality of life."
–Robert O. Snelling, Sr., Chairman of the Board, Snelling Personnel Services
"Money Makeovers is on my gift list for all my friends and their daughters. This is a marvelous book–the advice is clear and the prose is lively. I plan to put it on my desk for continued reference just as soon as I complete all of its recommendations on ‘getting organized.’"
–Chloe W. Aaron, Emmy Award-winning television producer
