Because names can be deceiving, it should probably be explained up front that I’m not actually broke.
I’m an newbie author and will now shamelessly ask you to please consider pre-ordering my book — it pays itself. (Seriously, there’s a whole chapter dedicated to how the book pays for itself).
I’m here to help you Get Your Financial Life Together by becoming enabled not entitled! #GYFLT
Erin Lowry is a millennial personal finance expert, speaker, and author of the book, “BROKE MILLENNIAL: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together.” The book, inspired by Erin’s website, BrokeMillennial.com, is a choose your own adventure guide to personal finance that uses wry humor and real-life examples to demystify the basics of money for millennials.
Erin’s work has been featured by CBS Sunday Morning, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NBC News, New York Magazine, MarketplaceMoney, U.S. News and World Report, and Refinery29. Erin is also a contributor to Forbes.
When she isn’t writing about money, Erin serves as a speaker and advocate on millennial and money matters. She has worked with colleges including New York University, Brooklyn College and New York Technical Institute as well as major financial institutions.
This drive to help her fellow millennials was born out of her understanding that while you can hate math – and even think you’re terrible with numbers – that doesn’t mean you’re worthless with money. Erin, who focused on journalism and theatre in college and never thought she’d be one for finance, grew up in a household where money never served as a stressor but rather an opportunity for education and an occasional healthy debate. These life lessons enabled Erin to get off of parental welfare after college, feel confident enough to strike out on her own, and prevented money from ever giving her ulcer-inducing anxiety, even when she wasn’t making very much.
It’s the feeling of total empowerment, even when the budget is tight, she wants to ensure people of all ages – but especially millennials – are able to experience.
Erin spent most of her childhood living in Asia, but now settled in Queens, New York where she shares an apartment with her spunky rescue dog Mosby.
I’ve also written for a variety of other outlets including Forbes and US News and World Reports’ My Money Blog. Broke Millennial posts have been syndicated to New York Magazine’s The Cut, Business Insider and Thought Catalog. I used to write for the now defunct DailyFinance. I formerly served as the content director for MagnifyMoney and now work as a full-time writer and speaker.
And sometimes people even want my opinion about “stuff.” Check out where I’ve been featured by hopping over to this page.
