In a world where celebrities are less and less making role model-like decisions, Caroline Waxler has come up with a way to turn their problems into people’s financial success.

Waxler, a personal finance expert and author, has become the editor of Mainstreet.com, which takes real life events and spins self-help finance stories from them.

But she doesn’t take everything in life seriously. Waxler – Joan Rivers’ niece and a New York-based comedy writer – has comedy in her blood.

Her stories on Mainstreet.com cover everything from health care to taxes to Miley Cyrus.

She talks with Growing Bolder about her upcoming books and her varied interests.
