Suze Orman didn’t take her own advice, at least when it came to her health.
The New York Times best-selling author and personal finance expert had emergency surgery in July for a tumor on her spinal cord, after ignoring some troubling signs for several months prior.
“With money, the reason we don’t do the things we know we need to do is because we are afraid,” Orman said. “We are afraid of making mistakes.
“I was in that mode, but with my health,” added Orman, who is 69 and said she “should have known better.”
