I'm Allison Martin, a Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI), syndicated financial writer, speaker, and author. Over the past five years, I've managed to escape a draining career and triple my income, all while raising two handsome boys that hold the keys to my heart. My work has been featured on The Wall Street Journal, ABC, MSN Money, Yahoo! Finance, Fox Business, Credit.com, MoneyTalksNews, Investopedia, AAACreditGuide, The Simple Dollar, and a host of other reputable publications. I also travel around the nation facilitating financial literacy and business workshops to people from all walks of life. Whether you're looking for a financial writer, speaker for your next event, a quick "pick-me-up", or dose of inspiration, I may be able to help you out. Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to my world.
