About Lois Center-Shabazz, and Msfinancialsavvy Personal Finance Website
Msfinancialsavvy personal finance website was started in 2002. It went into hiatus for a few years while my previous website was being formed – my sister personal finance site. Now, in 2016, it has been reborn since I realized the need for a personal finance site for women and girls was more necessary than ever.
Lois Center-Shabazz – that would be me, I am a long-time personal finance and savings advocate. I started writing about saving money and personal finances 25 years ago. I have amassed a successful financial life after saving, investing, and taking my own advice for several years.
I have written “Let’s Get Financial Savvy! From Debt-Free to Investing With Ease” in 2002. I received the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award in the Self-Help category, for Let’s Get Financial Savvy!
My first trade was dentistry; I was a practicing dentist in San Diego area for several years before developing my passion for finance. I graduated college from The University of California for undergraduate studies and dental school from Loma Linda University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Currently, I am a finance writer, webmaster, graphic designer, acrylic artist and nature photographer. I wear many hats and I love it.
I have previously held a financial license. I talk a lot about Mutual Fund Investing in my books because I specialized in Mutual Fund Investing and research for a few decades. My investments have been very successful. There are many other investments for you to consider as well. After reading articles, using Msfinancialsavvy personal finance website tutorials, and listening to my money video tips, as well as other tools provided here your personal finance IQ score will sore.
I now write personal finance books and articles full time, in addition to my passion for nature photography and acrylic painting.
From my personal experience, I decided that the biggest problem Americans face is “Savings”. After the financial debacle of the past decade until 2008, it was evident “that too many Americans”, are living in “too much excess” and need to “learn how to save”, it is as simple as that.
