A new study reveals Americans are not taking steps to ensure financial security. Freedom from the stress of money is the top dream for their future (59 percent), but more than 2 in 5 Americans polled have less than $1000 in their savings accounts.

For answers in this episode, we turn to nationally recognized money expert, Stefanie O’Connell, author of the book, The Broke and Beautiful Life.
