October 17, 2011 Dealing with Dough ~ Guest: Hollis Colquhoun

This week we're going to be dealing with dough. No, we aren't baking cookies, but we'll do something just as sweet. We're going to talk about money; making it, saving it and spending it. One of the most stressful aspects of the holiday season is finances and we want to give you a path to enjoy your holidays without the financial strain.

For some expert advice, we have Hollis Colquhoun joining us. Hollis is a financial expert, author of the award winning book Women Empowering Themselves: A Financial Survival Guide, and a martial artist. She'll be sharing her wisdom along with her financial self-defense strategies and I'll be sharing some tips and tricks I've found or used myself.


Hollis worked on Wall Street for 20 years and was one of the first female institutional bond traders. She later became an Accredited Financial Counselor for a nonprofit credit counseling agency and counseled thousands of clients from around the country.

Most of her clients were women in financial trouble after divorce or death of a spouse, mainly because they had no clue how to manage their finances. Hollis wanted to rectify this situation so she and a co-counselor wrote the Amazon Bestseller and 2011 National Indie Excellence Award Winner: Women Empowering Themselves: A Financial Survival Guide to give women a basic understanding of net worth, budgeting, saving, cash flow management, credit reports, goal setting and available resources.

Hollis is passionate about personally and financially empowering women; she gives financial education seminars and writes articles for a variety of online sites such as the Examiner and Technorati and for magazines including Personal Excellence, Self and More.

Hollis has been practicing martial arts for 17 years earning black belts in both Karate and Tae Kwon Do and she teaches self-defense classes for young adult women.
