About this title


My initiation into the financial field began after receiving a family legacy and meeting a persuasive broker. Snowing me with his sales skills and treating me as his "special" client, Mr. Enthusiasm and Charm.

* sold me a potpourri of financial programs I didn't understand or need,
* pushed his "couldn't lose" tax shelter schemes,
* flattered me into unpaid temping for his new firm,
* continued losing my money, then
* cajoled me into earning a securities license to make up my personal investment losses.

Reading this book will bring you:
* Enjoyment: Balance between fun and profit-thread the serious business of money through a humorous memoir for a positive message.
* Motivation/education: For women, especially, to come away empowered to handle their own finances and have enough general information to get started. I hope readers will learn that dealing with money does not have to be a difficult, time consuming or unhappy task.
* Permission: Not to have to know everything whether about finances, job or career. Everyone makes mistakes-often big and costly ones. By sharing my experience in a completely new and difficult field, and candidly telling my story, women in the business world can absorb the message that if I can make it. any of them can, too.

From the Back Cover:

Finally, a light look at a serious business and a "must read" for every investor; the book is a cautionary tale laced with laughter.
Lila Letchinger - Performance Artist and Book Reviewer, Chicago, Illinois

Memoirs of the Money Lady is an entertaining look at the investment industry from an insider's view. The author takes a refreshing approach to the often complicated financial world. This book should be read as a reminder for investment professionals, as a caveat for clients and as a training manual for young people.
William G. Hutton, Branch Manager - Investment Company, Fresno, California

A sugar coated pill! Ms. Preston's pithy wit envelops remarkable insight into the world of investing. Reading it is an enjoyable necessity.
