Hi, I'm Rebecca Jarvis, the Chief Business, Technology and Economics Correspondent for ABC News and the creator and host of "Real Biz with Rebecca Jarvis". I got my start in business as a trader in London and an investment banking analyst in Chicago, and have covered stocks and the economy for Crain's, CNBC, and CBS News where I was one of the morning show hosts before I came to ABC.
I grew up in NE Minneapolis, but I'm also a Chicago native (Go Cubs!) and a University of Chicago Alum. I used to write for the school paper, and have always wanted to be a journalist from a young age. My mom is a business columnist for the Chicago Tribune, and she taught me that great reporters become experts in their fields (partly why I signed up for 100-hour work weeks in investment banking for 2 years out of college...that, and a fear of defaulting on my student loans). My dad taught me to always believe in myself, to know my worth as a human being.
Since making the jump to journalism, I've traveled the world; trekked through the Amazon jungle; tooled around Omaha in Warren Buffett's car; and spent countless hours talking to traders, economists, and analysts from the floor of the NYSE.
What else about me? My little sister Lauren is my BFFL - we didn't always get along growing up (when you share a landline and a bedroom, it can get difficult!), but now I can't imagine going a day without texting, snap-chatting, calling and/or seeing her. I love Mexican food, my incredible and supportive husband, and coffee.
My random hobby: creating music on Garage Band. All the songs you hear on "Real Biz with Rebecca Jarvis" came from my iPhone!
And my favorite part about being a journalist: asking questions of anyone, anywhere, anytime. They don't always answer. But it's my job to ask.
Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Friday, November 18th at 4pm ET.
