I’m Rita R. Robison. For more than two decades, I’ve been a consumer and personal finance journalist making my living by finding the best bargains, calling out the crooks, and advocating for regular people just like you and me.
In that time, I’ve talked to so many people who feel like their money just isn’t getting them what they want, where they want to be, or the life they thought it would.
The purpose of this blog is to help you get what you want from your money. We cover financial goals, budgets, debt reduction, saving, smart choices for buying goods and services, and retirement planning. You’ll also find articles on safety, such as avoiding scams, looking out for rip off companies, and getting informed on the latest recalls.
In addition to getting help from my blog, you can sign up for my free newsletter, which offers 10 financial tips weekly. Here’s the link:
When you sign up, you'll also get my free ebook on money saving tips.
More help will be available in my book, “Follow the Money: My Life as a Financial Journalist,” which will be available in 2021.
If you’d like me to speak at your convention or to your employees, send an email to [email protected]. My presentations include “Getting Started on the Road to Financial Success,” “Top 10 Tips for Improving Your Consumer Skills,” and “How to Prepare for Retirement.”
We can also design programs on personal finance and consumer education to meet the needs of your organization.
During the covid-19 pandemic, presentations will be done remotely.
