Amanda Steinberg, single mom, and all-around kick-ass entrepreneur you probably read about in every single business publication, has been consistently pissed off that women do not have as much wealth as men.
First, the Columbia educated engineer launched DailyWorth, the leading site for ambitious women who want to learn more about money, and now co-founder of WorthFM, an investing and savings platform marketed to women, and automates savings and investing based on your money type.
