Karen Cordaway is a former shopaholic that spent years wasting money until she discovered how to stop by reading personal finance books. Today, her tips on smart spending, cost cutting, shopping and making extra money have been seen on publications all over the internet like Market Watch, the Consumerist, MSN and Money. She worked in retail for years and has also written for US News Money, Clark Howard.com as well as her own website, KarenCordaway.com. By day, I write about money. But at night, I conquer the digital world to help your small business land big media mentions and podcast bookings. In her spare time she takes photos, exercises and makes a mean Chicken Piccata.
