Juliette Fairley

After graduating from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, Juliette Fairley wrote four personal finance books that were published by John Wiley & Sons. Her most popular book Cash in the City: Affording Martinis, Manolos and Manicures on a Working Girl's Salary landed her a tv show called Cha Ching Money Makers that she hosted on the Discovery Channel. The visibility catapulted Miss Fairley into the role of indie film actress. When she is not writing for The Street and MainStreet, Miss Fairley is pursuing acting. If the Manhattan resident looks familiar, it may be because you saw her play a co-starring role in the vampire comedy Summer of Blood, which is currently airing on Showtime TV. Juliette writes about travel, entertainment, retirement, investing, millennial finance, real estate, elder financial abuse, guardianship reform, debt, the business of marijuana legalization and many other topics. Part of her publishing career has included being on Steve Forbes' ghost writing team and writing about entertainment for Variety, the Hollywood Bible.
