On top of that, don't forget this woman will have seven figure residuals (most likely) every year for the rest of her life. Her job provides her with enough equity risk I'm sure.

And we have had so much fun disrespecting her. I wish I were her! Wouldn't even have to change my sexual orientation.

Maybe she just thinks the market is over priced now.

But everybody continue to forget that we don't know how much she spends... maybe they don't provide enough if she has a bad year...

Regardless of her other sources of income, duration of her portfolio, or an other mitigating factor, Suze is stupid to have all her eggs in one basket. She is 55 and has achieved not only critical mass, but is by pretty much any standard rich. Given that she is likely to live another 30 or 40 years, and the TV business being notoriously fickle she should have a more diversified portfolio to protect her and her partners standard of living. An all bond portfolio has had a negative real return over 10,20, and 30 years periods on several ocassions and in some countries been absolutely devastated, in a few short years.

I'd be a lot more forgiving of her assets allocation if she was just another celebritity, but in theory she achieved her fame by giving people financial advice, if she is practicing what she preaches she is giving dangerous advice and if not she is a hypocrite. I've never liked her program much anyhow now I'll just laugh at her as I channel surf away.

Re: Suze Ormans portfolio

I'm not a big fan of Suze Orman, although I admit to sometimes getting sucked into her program - she's kinda weird. But, I will share that my 23 year old daughter watched her special (probably on Public TV) and just ordered her book of Amazon. She is totally jazzed about following Suze's rules and getting her financial house in order.

I just smiled....it is the same advice I have given over the years (pay off your cc every month, pay yourself first, leverage your 401k, LBYM, etc). Basically ignored - so if Suze can get her attention and change some of her behaviors....I guess she's not all bad.

The fact she gives advice but doesnt follow alot of it busts me up. At least she is militant about staying out of CC debit. Ill give her that.

I agree, she gives me a slight case of the willies in a way I can't quite put my finger on. I think it might be the incredible size of her hair and how it magically hovers above her head.

Re: Suze Ormans portfolio

I think the bottom line for me is that I wouldnt be at all surprised if she just started shrieking random words, tearing out her hair and then attacking people at random

She's proof that if you make the right connections, even untalented people can become mega-millionaires, which makes the US the best country in the world...........

There's a BUNCH of Hollywood folks that are like Suze Orman, but easier on the eyes..............

Isn't making the right connections a talent in itself? I wish I were more predisposed that way.

But anyway, I know what you mean--her talent is not very much with giving financial advice but more with the networking.
