Charisse Conanan Johnson, September 13, 2017

I hope you’re adjusting to the reality that fall is almost here – notice that I didn’t say summer is almost over (smile). Like many of you, I’m back in the saddle after some much needed vacation. My heart and prayers go out to you, or anyone you know, who has been affected by Hurricane […]

Money Matters in a Post-Election Trump World
Charisse Conanan Johnson, November 14, 2016

So, last week I was nervous and optimistic. And, many of you left comments on your reaction to my pre-election thoughts. Thank you for your continued engagement and thoughts. This week, I am still nervous and optimistic, just in a different way as I’ve now had several days to process and reflect. I’ve previously written about […]

Preview to Money and 2016 Presidential Debates
Charisse Conanan Johnson, September 26, 2016

It’s been a difficult week with all of us suffering from the continued racial discord in our country. Amidst it all, the stock market marches onward, and it was a rocky week with the Fed’s commentary on the potential future upward trajectory of interest rates.   So much is going on, right?   If you’re […]

Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, August 15, 2016

We have a few weeks left before it’s “back to school” and “back to work,” and thus I’m saying goodbye for the remaining weeks of summer. Yup, I work hard to play hard and it’s break time. I told you that I’m all about an Olympian attitude, and it’s time to finish strong. So, I […]

How the Upcoming Election is Going to Effect Your Money
Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, August 1, 2016

Last week, I was full of emotion as I listened to our President and First Lady at the Democratic National Convention. In my political conversations with family and friends, we often talk about whether or not we’ll be any happier with a new President in office. Trust me, you don’t want to read our family […]

Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, July 18, 2016

It’s already mid-July and I hope life is treating you well. Well, there’s plenty of news to distract me from the daily grind and my investing goals. I would suspect that you might be in the same boat. The thing I have to remind myself is that no one else is going to be responsible for my money […]

Trust Yourself Before you Brexit
Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, June 28, 2016

In case you missed it, the markets were just horrible today. Don’t look  – most of the stocks are in the red. Unless you were hiding under a rock (hey – no judgment, I get under a rock sometimes too), I’m sure that you now know that on June 23rd, British voters approved a referendum to […]

Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, June 20, 2016

Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the Charisse Says platform. Woot Woot! I could not have made it thus far without your continued interest in reading my newsletters, watching the Charisse Says show, leaving comments on my blog, and feedback to always make the platform better.

My Heart Is Heavy
Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA, June 14, 2016

Yes, it is true – my heart is still heavy as I reflect on yesterday’s Orlando massacre. Outrage? Yes. Sadness? Yes. Helpless? Yes. Silent? No. As someone who frequented many clubs during my late teens (shhh….don’t tell my Mom) and during my 20s in NYC, I think –“that could have been me.” I hope and pray that […]

As we continue to mourn the loss of Muhammad Ali, one of the most prolific athletes and fearless leaders of our time, I am reminded of his charm and wisdom – so infectious. This quote of his sticks out: “Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to […]
