Nope, definitely not.
Not only does Gail have a wicked sense of humour (I tweeted a few of her quotes last night, but there were many more that were less than PG), she is kind, gracious, and thoughtful. Her talk was filled with passion and humour, and afterward at the book signing, she greeted everyone warmly. She gave advice to anyone who asked, and signed dozens of books. I was her official post-it writer (she makes sure they’re all personalized), and chief PF fangirl for the event (thanks Bridget!). I can’t tell you how fantastic it was how she engaged with every single person who approached the table, even giving her email address to one person and asking her to email her story. She gave one woman a post-it note to settle an argument between spouses, and along with books, signed a grocery money jar and a wallet (!).
I even got my own special validation hug when I told her I had a $10K Emergency Fund and no debt! It was an amazing night. Then, like the Personal Finance Fairy Godmother she is, the clock struck 7:00 p.m. and she was whisked away to the airport, to impart personal finance wisdom to another group of University students.
