About the Author

Lisa Brown is a partner in a wealth management firm located in Atlanta, Georgia, specializing in high-net-worth clients. Although Brown’s clients are affluent, her own upbringing was far more modest. Raised by two schoolteachers in a rural farming town in upstate New York, Brown learned at the age of twelve how hard work translated into money, rising at six o’clock in the morning during her summer breaks to pick strawberries on a farm for twenty-five cents per quart. This perspective laid the foundation for the appreciation she has for money today. Brown’s childhood experience is at the opposite end of the financial spectrum from her professional experience. Over the years, she has been alarmed and frustrated by the number of single women approaching her for financial advice who shared the same unsettling characteristic: a lack of self-confidence when it came to making money decisions. These women have relied on their fathers, husbands, or partners to handle money matters throughout their lives, taking a back seat to this critical part of their world, and then suddenly found themselves on their own. Scared. Lisa has taken two decades of experience in the financial services business to teach real-life money lessons to women in her Girl Talk, Money Talk book series. Her motivation is to educate women at an earlier age to take control of their finances, be prepared, and make wise decisions with their money that will have a profound effect on their entire lives. Brown’s financial advice has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal,, and Yahoo! Finance, and she is a regular columnist for Kiplinger’s wealth-creation website. In 2015, Brown was named one of the ten young advisers under the age of forty to watch by Financial Advisor magazine. She lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her husband, three children, and Corgi.
