Susan Lynn ‘Suze’ Orman is an American financial advisor, television host, author and motivational speaker. She is known for her famous show on CNBC, ‘The Suze Orman Show’ and for the numerous books that she has written on a variety of topics related to finance, like, ‘You’ve Earned It, Don’t Lose It’, ‘The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom’, etc. Orman belonged to a middle class background when she was growing up and faced many financial difficulties. She dropped out of her university studies and went to California to become a waitress at a bakery, where she worked hard for 7 years and dreamt of opening a restaurant of her own. To help her in achieving this dream some of her longtime customers helped her in saving up $50,000. As she did not know what to do with a large sum of money back then, she took her money to Merrill Lynch where a broker misguided her and she ended up losing all her money. This incident motivated her to study finance on her own and she ended up working for Merrill Lynch itself. Later on, she founded her own financial firm and with media exposure and bestselling books she became a national star from a waitress who used to earn only $400 per week.
