FishbowlNY: What It’s Like To Go On The ‘Today’ Show

FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst appeared on the “Today” show today as part of financial contributor Jean Chatzky‘s “Mini Money Makeover” series.

“When the four-and-a-half minute segment got underway, Kotb and Gifford really drove the conversation and it was all I could do to just hold on and get a well-formed response out of my mouth,” Ernst said. “But in the end, I hope I made the point I went there to make: if a fired writer like me — with no freelance experience and just a handful of contacts in the industry — can make it work, so can you.”

If you know someone who would like to be made over, Chatzky is looking for more people to be featured on the segment. Read Ernst’s full post here.
