Interview with Anne M. Schwab, MBA, CFP

When did you first start writing?
In high school I doodled with poetry, a couple of which received awards and were published. It wasn't until twenty years later that I discovered I had a passion for writing. At that time, I didn't believe in myself - that is, I didn't believe that I was good enough to be a "professional" writer. To feed my passion, I began a magazine that contained informative articles in place of traditional advertising. After multiple advertisers complimented my "editing" I began to believe in myself. With multiple books in the works (in various genres - none of which were on the road to completion), I decided that my first book should be about what I knew best - personal financial planning. While I probably didn't need further validation of my abilities, I was thrilled that my initial book was awarded a gold medal, thus creating more inspiration for future books.
