Hi there! I’m Erin Lowry and I love talking about money. So much so that I made it my job, including writing three personal finance books (Broke Millennial, Broke Millennial Takes On Investing and Broke Millennial Talks Money).
Basically, I function as a financial translator to help you cut through the jargon (and BS) in the finance world. Adulting is exhausting enough without also feeling a consistent, low-grade anxiety about money. I’m here to help you stop feeling anxious and start feeling in control.
Two newsletters will drop every week!
On Wednesdays, all subscribers receive an “Ask Me Anything” newsletter — which will answer one or two money questions from subscribers. (Think: Are balance transfer cards a scam or worth it? Should we seriously bother to be saving for retirement when the world is a dumpster fire? How do I negotiate for a raise? How should I handle money with my partner?)
On Fridays, paid subscribers get the “Insider’s Scoop” second newsletter, which includes sections like:
In My Humble Opinion — I sound off about a popular money myth, strategy or topic. (Like should you be debt free before investing or should you bank jointly with a spouse?)
Smash that Subscribe — I share favorite money stories/resources from that week (podcasts, articles, other newsletters etc).
Would I Use It? — An quick analysis of a financial product and whether or not I’d personally use it.
Helping Hand — A biweekly advice section that helps a subscriber deal with a current money problem.
Plus, the occasional dog photo — like this one of my pup, Tasker*.
*She’s named for a former Buffalo Bills player.
The paid plan is $5 per month or a discounted $55 annually.
Who would benefit from Broke Millennial?
Anyone who wants to learn more about money! I’ll be covering a variety of topics from the basics of money management to investing to learning how to achieve full-frontal financial nudity with your partner. (And you don’t have to be a fellow Millennial to subscribe.)
No matter where you are in your money journey, I’m confident this newsletter will be entertaining and informative for you. Paid subscribers will receive the second weekly newsletter + a quarterly “Happy Hour with Erin”. Those on the Founding Member plan will those perks + receive a free Broke Millennial series book of their choice! Whether you’re a free or a paid subscriber, I’m excited to have you as part of
the Broke Millennial community. 💸
