Erin Lowry is a millennial personal finance expert who just wrote a crazy awesome book, Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together.
I had the pleasure of meeting Erin last year and can say that she’s the real deal.
She can talk about financial stuff in a way that has you dying laughing and not feeling awkward at all.
Broke Millennial, The Blog
I’ve been a reader of Erin’s blog, Broke Millennial, for a while and love her fresh perspective on money, relationships, and life.
In true millennial fashion, she once worked as a barista, survived living in a big city on a tight salary, and has a completely booked wedding season.
Here are a few examples of her super-relatable posts:
- Should You Tell Your Friends Your Financial Picture?
- A Broke Millennial Impulse Purchase: I Got a Dog
- Getting Financially Naked with Your Partner
She also gives practical financial advice in a way that’s easy to absorb and implement.
Sometimes she gets a bit philosophical with her posts. I really enjoyed her recent post about how will power is finite and it’s really hard to crush it in multiple areas of your life at once. I can definitely relate to letting other areas of your life take priority over your health.
Broke Millennial, The Book
Erin sent me an advanced copy of Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together and I LOVED IT.
If you like her blog, you will love her book. She shares financial information side by side with personal anecdotes, which make the book both informative and a fun read.
She also covers a wide array of financial topics for a broad demographic.
For example, I learned something new about payday loans in the book. I hadn’t given them much thought prior even though there are apparently more payday lenders in the U.S. than McDonalds and 40% of young people have used payday loans in the last 5 years.
In short, this is a great book and you consider buying it (or gifting it). I think you’ll like it.
Have you read the book? What did you think?
