“Money is wonderful. It’s the difference between having choices and having none. It’s the difference between worrying about bills and having the mental space to think about more creative things.
I’m not saying you need to be balling on Instagram, by any means.

“This group includes women who make over $100k / month, have appeared on Good Morning America, write for big publications (like Forbes) run their own financial planning firm, have published books, run their own podcast, and have successfully grown their own brands online.

“How to Save Money When You Live Paycheck-to-Paycheck – No frilly examples or nonsense expenses to cut. Just the best ways to save money when you live paycheck-to-paycheck from someone who’s been there, too!”
“How confident do you feel about your financial future? If you’re unsure or perhaps a little concerned, you’re not alone.

We’ve drawn on leading financial experts to create a simple, jargon-free, step-by-step guide.”
“Managing your finances can be a little overwhelming, especially when you’re young. However, the sooner you start making a financial plan for yourself, the more time you have to create a bright future.
