|Susan Hirshman - Author, DOES THIS MAKE MY ASSETS LOOK FAT?|
Women control 60 percent of U.S. wealth -- so says reasearch. The verb "CONTROL" infers thoughtful decision-making, informed analysis, sound budgeting, diligent record-keeping. Yet women -- as a group -- are woefully inadequate in these areas. As a group, women are far more versed in calorie counting, weight watching, wardrobe management and so forth. Susan Hirschman has an answer to this in her financial guide: DOES THIS MAKE MY ASSETS LOOK FAT? She discusses tools for empowering women with Judith West on Getting Your Money's Worth.

|Alexa Von Tobel - Founder/CEO, LearnVest|
Alexa Von Tobel graduated Magna Cum Laude at Harvard College and didn't know how to use credit properly. She realized she wasn't alone in never having taken a single class in personal finance. So, though having already enrolled in Harvard Business School, she took a leave of absence in order to launch LearnVest, a personal financial site for women. Women are lacking in financial skills necessary to achieve independency. Yet, they account for 80 percent of all spending. We're not talking on Getting Your Money's Worth about whether to go to Starbucks. You'll hear about college loans, how to plan for a wedding, as well as retirement, kids -- every stage of life, on GYMW with Judith West.

|Vivian Diller, Ph.D. / Jill Muir-Sukenick, Ph.D. - Authors, FACE IT, What Women Really Feel as Their Looks Change|
Who doesn't want to get older? Yet, who wants to age? We believe in our accomplishments. We pride ourselves on independence. We're contemporary women confident about our abilities in the twenty-first Century. Well, let's FACE IT! We're worry about wrinkles, gray hair and love-handles. We're in a state of double messages -- we don't want our looks to define us, but we know that youth and beauty are prized. Listen to Drs. Vivan Diller and Jill Muir-Sukenick -- both former models -- talk with Judith West on Getting Your Money's Worth, about the difficulty in reconciling the two messages: (1) Looks should not matter, and (2) Be smart, be successful, but don't dare to look older.
