Jill Russo Foster, 111 Ways to Save, Thrive In Five: Take Charge of Your Finances In Five Minutes A Day and Cash, Credit, and Your Finances: The Teen Years, is a speaker and personal financial coach. She worked for many years as a mortgage broker and helped hundreds of clients with all types of credit situations and mortgage needs.
She has always been amazed at the way people handle their money. She started her career as a bank teller in an affluent area. Many of her customers wore designer clothes and drove prestigious cars, but were also on the overdraft list. As a young person with her first real job, she wanted to establish her own credit. She made a game of maintaining as many credit cards as possible – her high was 27 credit cards! Her game was a financial disaster. Her experiences taught her that poor financial decisions can cause credit problems that affect us for years.
Jill’s years of experience in the banking / mortgage industry, combined with her ability to share her expertise in a friendly yet professional manner make Jill a sought-after professional speaker with the ability to make financial information fun. She uses real world examples, providing accurate information and practical advice that anyone can immediately put into action. She is also the author of the bi-weekly newsletter Money Choices. Her e-zine is designed to educate people and provide advice on personal finance. For more information, please visit her website at www.JillRussoFoster.com.
