Money Guru, Suze Orman, Suggest Two Dependable Resources for Credit Counseling Agencies

Money Guru, Suze Orman, Suggest Two Dependable Resources for Credit Counseling Agencies

A Little About Suze

After finishing school, Orman moved to Berkley, California and she worked as a waitress. In 1980, she borrowed $52,000 from friends and wellwishers to open a restaurant.



Still an investment novice, she invested that money through a representative at Merrill Lynch, who promptly lost the entire investment trading options. Later, Orman trained as an account executive for Merill Lynch, where she learned that the type of investment her broker put her in was not suitable for her needs, as option trading is considered a high-risk but high-reward investment suitable only for high-net worth individuals. It was explained to her that since he was the highest producing representative in the office, his actions went unchecked. She simultaneously and successfully sued Merrill Lynch while she was still employed at the firm (it is illegal to fire employees solely for filing a lawsuit against them) for a prior investment loss of $50,000.  After completing her training with Merrill Lynch, she remained at the firm until 1983 when she left to become vice-president of investments at PrudentiL Bche Securities. 



In 1987, Orman resigned from Prudential and founded the Suze Orman Financial Group, in Emeryville, Califormnia. While there, she published a booklet, The Facts on Single Premium Whole Life, which compared single-premium whole life, universal life, and single-premium deferred annuities; she distributed copies of the booklet for free to anyone who requested one. She was director of the firm until 1997.



Orman published three books between 1997-99: The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom (1997), You Earned it Don't Lose it (1999), and The Courage to be Rich(1999). Other books by Orman include: The Road to Wealth (2001) and The Laws of Money, The Lessons of Life (2003)



The Suze Orman Show began airing on CNBC in 2002.   In February 2008, Orman gave away copies of her book Women and Money for free following an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Shpw, generating almost two million downloads.  Orman has been featured on the Food Network's Paula's Party.  In January 2011, Orman appeared on Oprah's Allstars. In January 2012, Orman's six-episode TV series America's Money Class with Suze Orman premiered on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
