Financial Fireside Chat of the Month With ... CNN Correspondent Christine Romans

Long before most of us get our first hit of caffeine in the morning, Christine Romans is wide awake and whip-smart-ready to deliver the day's top money news to the nation.

The CNN chief business correspondent and cohost of the network's "Early Start" is a veteran business journalist who reported for Reuters and Knight-Ridder Financial News before beginning her tenure at CNN covering the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

Despite her jam-packed schedule, the Emmy-winning reporter (and real-life inspiration for the Sloan Sabbith character on HBO's "The Newsroom") has found time to write three books on money matters.

Her most recent one, "Smart Is the New Rich: Money Guide for Millennials," focuses on teaching financial know-how to the next generation.

We caught up with the 44-year-old reporter to talk about what advice she'd give to her 20-year-old self, the biggest money risk she ever took—and the top lesson she's passing on to her three young sons.
