Let’s dive into today’s money conversation with Erin Lowry. Erin is a millennial money expert and author of the book, “Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping by And Get Your Financial Life Together.” She’s the creator of brokemillennial.com. The thing I like about Erin is her writing style- she’s sarcastic, witty and writes like she speaks.  

In this episode we talk about writing the book and what people can expect from that, growing up in a household with constantly discussed personal finance, knowing your cash flow, the importance of multiple streams of income and how this looks in her life, the true value of a worthless degree, and getting financially naked with your SO.

And because Erin’s book is launching officially in May, anyone who pre-orders the book and sends an email to info@brokemillennial.com will get a special bonus chapter! Let’s all rally together and help Erin hit the bestseller list!
