Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Sep 11, 2017

Have you ever considered the link between health and wealth that could add years to your life and dollars (or pounds) to your retirement savings?

My guest on the podcast today is co-author of a new book that aims to get us all talking about this vital link.

Jean Chatzky is a leading personal expert in the US. She's the long-time financial editor for NBC’s TODAY show, an award-winning personal finance journalist, a best-selling author and host of HerMoney with Jean Chatzky - a podcast for women, by women, about money.

Jean believes knowing how to manage our money is one of the most important life skills for people at every age and she's made it her mission to help simplify money matters, increasing financial literacy both now and for the future.

Her new book, co-authored with the Cleveland Clinic's chief wellness officer Dr. Michael Roizen, is AgeProof: Living Longer Without Running Out of Money or Breaking a Hip.

All the money in the world doesn't mean a thing if we can't get out of bed. And the healthiest body in the world won't stay that way if we're frazzled about five figures worth of debt.
