Nicole Lapin is the only finance expert you don’t need a dictionary to understand.
She got her start in finance at age eighteen, reporting from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for First Business Network. She went on to become the youngest anchor ever at CNN and then to claim the same title at CNBC, where she anchored the only global finance show on the network, Worldwide Exchange, while contributing financial reports to MSNBC and Today.
Nicole has also served as a business anchor and special correspondent for Bloomberg Television. She is the money saving correspondent for The Wendy Williams Show and reports on the business of Hollywood for The Insider. She is also the creator and host of the AOL Originals show, I’ll Never Forget My First, where she interviews influential women about the first time they knew they made it.
Nicole has earned the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) certification. She graduated summa cum laude and as the valedictorian of her class at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

Every Story Comes Back to Money – Most people would rather talk about anything—anything—before talking about money. But every story comes back to money, and it’s time to join the conversation. As a veteran financial journalist, Nicole has been the first to break financial stories with far-reaching impacts on economies large and small. She had to learn the jargon and idiosyncrasies of the finance world first-hand, not through getting her MBA but at the School of Hard Knocks. And now she shares her own experiences—warts and all, in plain English—to inspire others to learn the language of money and use it to live a “rich” life in every sense of the word.
Investing in Yourself – Investing in yourself and others in your community is good business. Period. Whether it’s buying your morning latte because it keeps you from splurging on a more expensive item later on, or subscribing to a trade magazine to get ahead at work, Nicole argues that spending money on yourself can be a good thing. Sometimes you need to spend money to make money—and investing that money in yourself will pay dividends down the road for your goals and your life.
Entrepreneurship is #winning – Nicole said it before, in her “Made in America” series on CNBC, and she’ll say it again: entrepreneurs were the winner of the recession. And they will continue to come out on top in our new creative economy. Nicole breaks down the difference between a hobby and a legitimate business idea and then offers actionable steps to get your Big Idea underway. Whether you want to start an entirely new business or own the space you’re in at your current job, Nicole will teach you to build your empire and be the CEO of you.
Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Boss – Put your career into overdrive! Nicole presents the networking tips that you won’t learn in business school, from faking it ‘til you make it with DIY business cards to making friends with the assistants who will be bosses someday. Where can you find networking opportunities (hint: in more creative places than you might think!) and how can you work a room in a way that’s impactful, but not sleazy? Make the most of your career and personal brand with these actionable tips.
