In over two decades of reporting on personal finance — talking to real people about their real money — our CEO and co-founder Jean Chatzky realized that contrary to public opinion when it comes to money, women are different. Maybe not in the investments we need to own, but in how we view money and want to use money to create change … in our own financial lives, the lives of the people we love and in the world. We’re also different in the way we want to communicate about it. It’s when we’re with other women that we’re inspired to change. HerMoney.com — with its daily content, newsletters and podcasts — is the result. We are your judgment-free zone for all things financial. And we are focused on changing our relationships with money… one woman at a time.

Jean Chatzky, CEO and co-founder of HerMoney, is the financial editor of NBC’s “Today” show, the best-selling author of 11 books, an award-winning magazine columnist and the host of the “HerMoney” podcast. She was also an English major in college. Through decades of reporting on personal finance, she learned that a) the jargon-filled speak of the financial industry was created (largely by men) to sell you stuff you don’t need, and b) if you eliminate the jargon there is absolutely no rocket science to money. She knows that a full, successful financial life is within every woman’s grasp — and with the HerMoney team, she’s on a mission to help you get it. Find her @JeanChatzky on Twitter.
