Publisher's Summary

Stop living paycheck to paycheck and get your financial life together (#GYFLT)! If you're a cash-strapped 20- or 30-something, it's easy to get freaked out by finances. But you're not doomed to spend your life drowning in debt or mystified by money. It's time to stop scraping by and take control of your money and your life with this savvy and smart guide.

Broke Millennial shows step by step how to go from flat broke to financial badass. Unlike most personal finance books out there, it doesn't just cover boring stuff like credit card debt, investing, and dealing with the dreaded B word (budgeting). Financial expert Erin Lowry goes beyond the basics to tackle tricky money matters and situations most of us face #IRL, including:

  • Understanding your relationship with moolah: Do you treat it like a Tinder date or marriage material?
  • Managing student loans without having a full-on panic attack
  • What to do when you're out with your crew and can't afford to split the bill evenly
  • How to get "financially naked" with your partner and find out his or her "number" (debt number, of course)
  • And much more

Packed with refreshingly simple advice and hilarious true stories, Broke Millennial is the essential road map every financially clueless millennial needs to become a money master. So what are you waiting for? Let's #GYFLT!

Disappointed

If you are a beginner to personal finance this might be a good read for you. If you are anyone else dont waste your audible credit on this. You can find better and more in depth financial advice through blogs.

With that being said, I like her "get started now" attitude towards personal finance.

helpful book

i had to get past the authors almost condescending references to "us millenials" and her voice but once I got about 1/3 of the way in I felt i was actually picking up some really helpful tips!

Ups and downs

The book assumes the reader is a suburban girl living in either nyc or the bay area trying to make it. Total sex and the city vibe. The content is solid, but you wont learn anything new if you have even the most basic understanding of personal finance. This could be useful for the first book you touch but not much more than that

Good but...

Good information and resources for people beginning their financial journey. Would be great if I hadn’t read “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” first.

Thumbs up

I really enjoyed the book as someone who's already been working towards this similar mindset/goal. It was my first time listening to it, so i'm excited to give it another listen when I need a refresher.
The step by step approach she takes to breaking down topics is very effective for me and makes for a great reference to fall back on. I'd recommend it to everyone! If you listen to this and can't find something you can't approve on in your life than you're not listening well enough.

Much Needed

As someone who has recently graduated from University, there were many ideas that Erin went over that I have not yet learned. These essential ideas to adulting were not outlined to me by family, friends, or my education. Her presentation of the material made the information digestible and engaging. If you are in you are looking to jump start your personal finances, this is the book for you!

Game changer

I don't usually write reviews for anything but I think this books deserves it. If you are someone who is struggling with your personal finances or isn't but want some more information or motivation to feel more in control of your financial future then this book is perfect. I wish I had read this book 10 years ago but even know it has opened my eyes and ears to a lot of information that I never knew. I am actually looking forward to a better financial future and it is partly thanks to this book.

Very helpful

Very helpful information. Great place to start if you dont know who to ask for help with finances. She gives lots of experts, books, and websites to go even further seeking help if needed in a variety of categories.

A really great, detailed, easy to understand book

I really enjoyed reading this book. There was a perfect balance between detailed information and tips on finance as well as millennial humor. Neither aspect overshadowed the other. This book will definitely help me. I plan on gifting it to everyone. Thank you!
