About Sandra Grahame, co-founder of Smart Cookies:
In 2006 Sandra and her four girlfriends set out on a mission to change their financial lives but were frustrated when they discovered a lack of financial resources targeted towards young, ambitious women. Together they decided to take matters into their own hands, creating a money club and coining themselves “The Smart Cookies”.
In less than one year, the group had collectively paid off more than $50,000 of debt and increased their earnings by more than $100,000.
Almost one year to the day of starting their money club, they got a call from Oprah, and were invited to the show to share their story. Their story struck a chord with women around the world and in the following years, Sandra and the Smart Cookies inspired millions to re-imagine the traditional world of money and finance, creating a movement of women equipped to build wealth and create a rich life on their own terms.
Together, Sandra and the Smart Cookies wrote two best selling books; The Smart Cookies Guide To Making More Dough and The Smart Cookies Guide To Couples and Money, and produced and hosted two seasons of the Smart Cookies TV series airing on OWN and the ION network.
Six years ago, after her son was born, Sandra took over soul ownership of Smart Cookies and has grown the brand into an online education platform helping thousands of ambitious women from all over the world achieve life changing financial goals. She's a national expert featured on the TODAY Show, CNN, The New York Times, Good Morning America, and is a regular contributor on Fox Denver.
