Althea Ledford

Editor of “E” The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive and CEO of  ETM media network

Each month ETM media produces a monthly publication titled E The Magazine for Today’s Female Executive. Over the last quarter E Magazine is moving from a monthly publication to a daily news platform provide current issues, forums and breaking news. The only difference is ETM will present News From a Balanced Perspective. Meaning Women will be equally represented in the discussions, forums and interpretation of issues.


While the website is currently under remodeling the lastest 12 issues can be viewed at this link.


E Magazine started 2 years ago quite accidentally when Althea was invited to be the director of NAFE Los Angeles. Having already published 6 books on topics ranging from children to social and business issues, she recognized an opportunity to showcase the talent from the NAFE speakers. After a few drafts and a rocky start, E magazine was born.


At the beginning all the writers came from the Nafe pool of talent. And aggressively promoted by NAFE leadership specifically Robbie Motter, the NAFE Global Coordinator. Over time the magazine has grown to over 60 writers in 7 countries. The distribution started with NAFE and in now reaching a base of 1.4 million women and men.  E Magazine now has readers on every continent which grows each month.


With the launching of ETM news media site, E magazine will be experience another area of growth placing it within the group of small media networks. These are still the early days, but E magazine and ETM media networks have landed on a niche that will be around for a long time to come.

  1. Hello. I am Linda Stubblefield, a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA). I would like to discuss the possibility of an interview about how a divorce financial analyst works and how we ease the decision making burden during a divorce and empower women to speak up for their needs. Many women feel disadvantaged in discussions between soon-to-be ex-spouse and attorney. 66% of women say they do not feel adequately educated in matters of finance. And decisions made during a divorce will affect the parties for the rest of their lives.

    If this topic would be on interest to your audience, please call me.
    Linda Stubblefield, CDFA, CFP, ChFEBC
