Women of personal finance spotlight: Allese Thomson from Wesabe here to answer your questions
For the rest of this week (9/10 - 9/14) Allese Thomson, the community manager from Wesabe, will be answering questions in our forum about personal finance, corporate blogging, and her experiences working for an exciting personal finance startup.
Wesabe is a great online budgeting tool that analyzes your financial data to help you identify ways to save money. The best part of Wesabe, however, is the Wesabe community, which is managed with loving care by Allese.
Allese started out as an intern at Wesabe but quickly moved up to become Wesabe's community manager and official blogger (I think she'll probably be running the place by Christmas).
Please join Allese in our forums today and find out how she landed such a sweet gig at Wesabe!
This interview is part of Wise Bread's spotlight on the Women of Personal Finance. At the end of the interview period we'll publish the best questions and answers from the forum interview and post them on the homepage. If your question gets picked we'll include a link back to your blog.
About Allese Thomson
Blog: Wheaties for Your Wallet (Wesabe's Official Blog)
Blogger: Allese Thomson
Community: Wesabe Groups
Last summer, we brought Allese in as an intern to help us take care of the increasing amounts of work at Wesabe. We were psyched that she dove right in and did a great job with her assigned tasks. Even better, though, was that she started using Wesabe for her own finances, and had a ton of great suggestions and contributions for improving the site. Best of all for me, she jumped into Wesabe Groups and started asking questions, posting her own advice, and kicking off threads that turned into great and long-running conversations. Her participation in Groups wasn’t part of her job nor even anything we asked her to do, but right away she made the community better and has been very active in Groups since.
Here is a sample of the helpful discussions taking place at Wesabe:
