About Me

L. Marie Joseph has educated several college graduates in breaking the barrier from getting by with money to getting ahead with money. Mrs. Joseph has been a recognized authority in personal finance and personal development. Marie has directly impacted the lives of many minorities nationwide in wealth building.

Her work has been mentioned in MSN Money, CNNMoney, U.S. News & World Report, The Vanguard Group, and Forbes Woman and various personal finance blogs and radio programs. Being a college graduate herself, she knows firsthand experiences of the obstacles and challenges most graduates face when dealing with an above average income for the first time. She learned how to manage her money and get ahead financially instead of just getting by paycheck to paycheck.

Marie started focusing on investing and saving more of her income rather than spending and consuming.
