by ERIN LOWRY
It’s easy to panic and lost focus on finances if you’re an impressionable 20-30-year-old person restricted by money. Though most of the millennial fall to this trap, it does not denote that one is bound to spend his life figuring out how to properly manage finances. Days of financial mishandling should stop, and it is only through this guide that they will be able to do so.
Broke Millennial comprehensively presents methods on how to gain financial stability and be the money badass that one is bound to become. Compared to most financial books published, this book has a unique take on how to deal with overall financial management far from lazy discussions about credit cards and investments. The author opted out from discussing the basics and heads for lessons in need of greater discussion including
- One’s treatment of money
- Management of student loans with confidence
- Proper ways on how to divide bills evenly
- Getting financially stable with partner
Infused with humor and real-life narrations, Broke Millennial is proven to give anxious millennials the necessary tools to become the master of finances.
