3 TV Programs That Teach You How to Save and Invest Your Money
An informed investor is a wealthy investor
If you need a few pointers on how to save and invest wisely, there are a number of television programs designed to help you.
Whether you are looking to save for a new home or to build your investment portfolio, you can choose from a variety of shows geared to your needs.
Here is a review of 3 such TV programs…
Ed Slott is a practicing CPA and expert in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and taxation issues.
He is an author, public speaker and featured guest on public television (PBS).
Slott educates consumers on steps to reduce their tax burdens and avoid needless penalties.
His strategies are designed to assure consumers that they have enough savings to last through retirement by wise investing and knowledge of the tax laws.
Slott has been cited by The Wall Street Journal as an expert source for information on IRAs.
He has written several books that show consumers how to use the tax laws to maximize their income during retirement.
Jim Cramer’s show “Mad Money“ on CNBC is a departure from the usual money and investment shows.
Cramer seeks not only to educate but to entertain—to the extreme! Intertwined with Cramer’s stock picks are props, sound effects, and costumes.
For example, Cramer uses toy bulls and bears to illustrate what’s happening in the stock market.
Yes, he may actually throw them on the floor or grind them up in a food processor to illustrate a point.
This CNBC show has been called the ultimate premarket morning news and talk program.
Big names in business and politics share their stories and offer insight.
It’s anchored by Joe Kernen, Becky Quick, and Andrew Ross Sorkin.
Quick has interviewed financial heavy hitters like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Alan Greenspan, T. Boone Pickens, Jamie Dimon and Charlie Munger.
Kernen had a 10-year career as a stockbroker before switching careers, so he knows his stuff.
Sorkin is financial columnist for “The New York Times” and the editor-at-large of “DealBook.”

Change Management for Your Organization
I am a recovering change management consultant. Over the last 20 years or so, I’ve focused my career primarily in the people change management space. My job was to help companies realize the ROI of their multi-million dollar investments – whether they be investments in organizational redesign, new systems or large scale business transformations – by mitigating resistance, creating buy-in and driving adoption. The way to do that was to get the people on-board with what was happening. If they stopped resisting what was inevitable and just adopted the change, then all would be right in the “corporate” world. And I use the term “corporate” as a catch-all. These challenges and my project work spanned industries and organizations, from non-profit and government to privately owned and publicly traded enterprises.
The challenge is and always will be people. People will make or break the success of any change a company wants to make. So my job was part data analysis, part coaching, part writing, part training and part shrink. Get into the heads of the people to figure out what they wanted and find a way to make this change something they want. Or better yet – need. Call it marketing. Call it change management. Call it what you want. No matter how you slice and dice it, or whatever you call it, I was doing it wrong. And so are you.
If we apply the “Ask, Listen and Do” mindset to this problem, we as change management professionals can increase our effectiveness while enabling organizations to actually realize the ROI of their big dollar investments.
Let’s look at 2 different change management models to see the difference and similarities: Lewin's Change Management Model and Prosci's ADKAR Model and 3-Phase Process.
