   Posted On: April 15, 2016  |    Posted In: Career  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

Nearly a decade ago I left for college with the intention of getting a degree in theatre and then bursting onto the scene in New York City as an actress.

Financial Pet Peeve: The Worst Credit Score Myth of All

   Posted On: March 3, 2016  |    Posted In: Personal Finance 101  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

There is a perverse myth that’s taken hold in our recently credit-score-obsessed culture. A myth so upsetting to my delicate feminine emotions, it leaves me longing for the days of fainting couches. This myth is doing damage to the already weakened bank accounts scores of millennials attempt to fatten each month. This myth is my … Continued
