Hey, isn't it great when you can be two places at once? I'm visiting my daughter in college in Washington and last night, while we were sitting in the theater, watching the touring Broadway version of "Phantom of the Opera" there was a story being prepped in NYC for The Today Show.
So this morning, while we ordered room service for breakfast, I was also on The Today Show in New York City! The piece is about the historical tendency for merchants to try and "sell" the consumer during difficult economic times. The reporter saw that during the current financial crisis, there is another trend--some merchants are actually trying to help their customer weather the storm. That's where I come in--as the financial expert who has partnered with Wal-Mart in order to help educate consumers in all the areas that matter most from budgeting to paying down debt to buying smarter.

Now, back to visiting with my baby girl!
