#323 Broke Millennial with Erin Lowry


We're keeping this blurb here for the next few weeks as a reminder that there's a new place for Jill on Money content - YouTube!  Seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes it takes a little outside help (h/t to JOM friend, Joe A!) to recognize the obvious.  So don't freak out.  Going forward, we're going to put all our radio and podcast content on YouTube! It'll be easier for you to navigate and listen to past shows, because everything will be in one place.  Just click any of the links below and you'll be able to listen to this week's show as well as anything else you see that might interest you, including all the Better Off podcast content if you haven't been listening. Let us know what you think by emailing us at askjill@jillonmoney.com.

We started the show with Victoria in Baltimore who had a question about one of my favorite topics in the world...annuities! Yet another example of someone trying to sell an insurance product to someone who doesn't need it!! Thankfully, Victoria has a good BS detector.

Our inbox has been slammed, and still is, so we spent the rest of hour one trying to clear it out a bit.  Not quite there but we made a good dent.

It's graduation season so in hour two we thought we'd help out some of these money neophytes as they prepare to enter the real world by chatting with Erin Lowry, author of the new book: Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together.

As Erin says, it’s easy to get freaked out by finances. But you’re not doomed to spend your life drowning in debt or being 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.
The book doesn’t just cover stuff like credit card debt, investing, and budgeting, it also tackles tricky money matters and situations including:
  • Understanding your relationship with money: 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 friends and can’t afford to split the bill evenly
  • How to get “financially naked” with your partner

If you're looking for a gift for the college grad in your life, consider picking up a copy...it could help that person enter the real world on the right path.
