Hello there –
Is this your first time here? Perhaps you saw a giant photo of me next to the words “Millennials want to save, many can’t.”
Other than now knowing that my discretionary income is put towards spending time with my friends and enjoying New York City, you probably don’t know what I’m all about. Let me explain.
I started this site almost two years ago in an attempt to make learning about finance at least some what enjoyable for the common millennial. Generally, I share stories from my own life and tie them into a financial literacy lesson. Some are as simple as why saving is important or what is a credit report/score, to how to build credit history, or rolling over a 401(k) or handling fraud.
Hopefully you’ll spend some time poking around my site and share this with any millennials (financially literate or not) in your life. Or hey, maybe a Gen Xer or Boomer might even be interested! I don’t discriminate based on generation.
Here are some of my most popular posts to date:
- Dear Parents, Charge Your Kids Rent
- Confession: I Avoided the Millennial Curse
- An Impassioned Plea for Understanding Compound Interest
And as a bonus, here my origin story.
Thanks for taking the time to visit!

P.S. I’m not actually broke. It’s just a clever moniker.
