If you took a peek at Alexa von Tobel's calendar on any given day, you might see "Drinks with Jenny" right before "Pay credit card bill." That's because the founder and CEO of the personal finance website for women LearnVest.com puts reminders in her calendar for everything from dinner to payment due dates. She also has a separate email address for anything financial-related (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org): "I have my work email, my social email and my financial email. It helps me stay organized."
