About Us

rebecca johnson retouchedRebecca Johnson is a long time magazine journalist who has written about a wide variety of topics for publications such as The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker and Vogue, where she has been a Contributing Editor for the last twenty four years. She is the author of the novel, And Sometimes Why (Putnam). She wrote a personal finance column for the now defunct Mademoiselle Magazine when she was in her 20’s. Back then, readers would ask questions like, “What’s a lot to pay for shoes?” It’s a question she still grapples with. She started MoneyHags.com in order to try and spark a new kind of conversation about women over 40 and money, one that does not invoke fear but, instead, inspires competency and even joy. Remember, money isn’t everything. Unless you have none of it.
