Financial planner and broker Julie Stav has been helping women get rich for years - but her inspiring story began when she was forced to leave her native Cuba as a teenager. Penniless, she escaped to America, studied and became a school teacher and married. A divorce left her a single parent with a pile of debts and thirty-three cents in her checking account. Julie's interest in the stock market became a source of hope and empowerment. Her investments in both her education and the stock market paid off-and her story provided invaluable inspiration to the tens of thousands of people who eventually joined investment clubs with her guidance.Now, in her first hardcover and an upcoming TV show on PBS, Julie Stav is ready to share her hands-on techniques with the world. You don't have to be a mathematician or money expert, she explains--all you need is your initial investment (no matter how small) and a sound grasp of basic principles that can help you pick winners, recognize opportunities, and ditch the duds before they drain your funds. In addition to guidance on getting started, she offers tips on finding (or founding) an investment club--a support system that can give you a major advantage in the market.Smart, sensible, and down-to-earth, Julie Stav has accomplished the impossible--she's simplified the stock market, and put a new world of wealth within the reach of every woman.
