About Lynnette

Entrepreneur & Consultant

Entrepreneurship combines Lynnette's professional and personal passions, as she runs her business with her husband and co-founder, Earl Cox. Together, Lynnette and Earl have been called "the wow" and "the how."

Personal Finance Expert

Before becoming a small business owner, Lynnette worked for 10 years as a Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal reporter and CNBC correspondent, covering Wall Street and personal finance. With 25+ years of expertise, Lynnette's knowledge of personal finances is vast and deep — making her a great keynote speaker, financial workshop presenter or moderator.

Bestselling Author

Lynnette leverages her prior experience as a financial journalist -- and draws upon her Master of Arts degree in Journalism -- to write articles, blog posts and books that help people better manage their finances. She is the author of 15 personal finance books, including the New York Times best-seller Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom.

Lynnette is a big proponent of helping people build wealth -- especially African-Americans and communities of color, who often suffer a significant wealth gap. Lynnette doesn't just talk about wealth-building. She practices what she preaches, investing in stocks, mutual funds, ETFs & crypto along with owning a sizable portfolio of real estate investments too.

Wife & Mom

Although she wears many hats, and has had numerous professional accomplishments, Lynnette says: "Having a happy, loving marriage and raising three wonderful kids is truly my biggest joy in life -- and my biggest success too." Earl and Lynnette's children include one recent college graduate, one current college student and one college-bound teen.
