my life Well, okay, not just one donut five dozen Krispy Kreme donuts.It all began on a humid morning in North Carolina when my mom decided to engage in one of the most dangerous and cutthroat suburban activities hosting a yard sale.As my sister and I watched her spend the week leading upto it preparing to sell off our unused goods to flocks of women wearing elastic band sweatpants and scrunchies this was the nineties, after all , an idea began to germinate in my seven year old mind If people were willing to hand over their hard earned cash for a used Abs of Steel video at 7 30 in the morning, wouldnt they be likely to fork some over to buy donuts from twoadorable children Suddenly, visions of Toys R Usstore aislesand, specifically, a Nerf Super Soaker Id been covetingstarted to dance in my head.I pitched the idea to my parents After a little deliberation, my dad offered to be my backer and stake the capital required to fund my enterpriseas well as drive the car to pick up the donuts Again, I was seven My four year old sister, Cailin no, this is not a typothats her real name , and I set up shop using our Fisher Price picnic table as our storefront I strapped a teal fanny pack around my waist to hold my earnings, donned my purple baseball cap, and we were open for business.Cailin and I spent the morning of the yard sale calling out to haggard looking shoppers, neighbors walking their dogs, and gaggles ofneon track suited moms We implored them to purchase a glazed Krispy Kremedonut for the inflated price of 50 cents And slowly but surely, the combination of my sisters doe like eyes and my enthusiastic sales pitch won them over.Handing over those donuts to die hard garage sale enthusiasts and kind neighbors felt like grueling work during an early morning of summer vacation Finally, with the last donut sold, I peeked into my fannypack knowing the Super Soaker was mine Feeling the weight of all those quarters, I imagined I could even buy two Super Soakers and be the ultimate warrior of water fights at the pool.Then everything went horribly wrong.My dad strolled over and asked to see the earnings After having been subjected to seven years of his tyrannical candy tax at Halloween he claimed first dibs on our loot because he chaperoned the trick or treating, which set me up nicely to understand taxes in my first real world paycheck , I clutched the fanny pack to my chest, refusing to show him.My dad took the fanny pack, dumped our earnings on ourpicnic table, and carefully counted out the coins He then proceeded to give me my first lesson in economics.You have thirty dollars here, he said.Yes, I confidently replied I am going to ToysRUs.He looked at me and smiled in that all knowing way parents do, which left me with a sense of foreboding brewing in the pit of my stomach.Well, it cost me eight dollars to buy the donuts you sold, he said while he picked up eight dollars in quarters Then you had Cailin help you sell them, so you need to pay her He handed my four year old sister six dollars So, after expenses, your net profit was sixteen dollars He smiled while pushing the remaining piles of quarters toward me.I had never felt so cheated in my life.Rather than convincing me that my dad was out to swindle us, the Krispy Kreme experience instead has become the cornerstone of my personal finance education What my dads lesson started was a long traditionof my parents teaching us essential lessons about money through the use o freal life examples, which are still fresh in my mind 20 years later.Even if you feel that taking a childs hard earned donut money is cruelwhich, in retrospect, I no longer do, and I could very likely do the same one day to any future kids I may have hey, apples dont fall far from trees these financial lessons served me well when I eventually struck out on my own For example, they enabled me to get off parental welfare only three weeks after college and muster the confidence to move to New York, knowing I would survive there as an independent early twentysomething And even when I wasnt making much, my parents lessons instilled in me a sense of empowerment over the issue of money rather than ulcer inducing anxiety.I quickly learned many of my fellow twentysomethings and even thirtysomethings dont have that feeling of empowerment.Sitting over sober up cups of coffee in the wee hours ofa New York City morning, my friend Lizzie began to complain about her job working as an assistant to two high powered executives at a major networka job she hated with a passion, but it was a steady paycheck and provided insurance.Okay, so why dont you quit I asked The whole point of moving to New York was to try your hand at acting anyway, right Lizzie nodded.Well, youre twenty three with no student loans, no debt, no kids, no husbanddoesnt this seem like the right time to be working crappy waitressing jobs and nannying some Upper East Side brats in the name of pursuing your art I pressed.I dont knowmoney just really stresses me out she burst out I just dont pay attention to it and then hope I have enough at the end of the month.Her terrified response startled me If a smart, savvy young professional like Lizzie, who came from a family of comfortable means and carried no student loan debt, couldnt handle her relatively simple finances without freaking out, what did that mean for everyone else our age Wondering if Lizzies experience was a common problemwith my peers, I started asking around Without fail, everyone responded with some version of Lizzies protest Money was stressful, confusing, scary, and not to be discussed No one wanted to touch the subject, even while wearing a hazmat suit But not only was this fear keeping my friends from trying to understand how money worked it was also preventing them from taking risks to get ahead in their careers and even perpetuating the deadly cycle of living from paycheck to paycheck with no plan for the future.As I thought about this, I wondered, Why dont I feel the same way Am I missing something Then it dawned on me that growing up with parents who constantly used real life moments to teach me about money and deprived me of two Super Soakers had prepared me to handle my financial affairs, and my fellow millennials hadnt benefited from such preparation But after seeing what money fears were doing to Lizzie and others, I needed to find a way to help other millennials experience what I had So I decided to do what any slightly bored at work millennial would do I started a blog about it.BrokeMillennial.com launched as a place where I could take stories from my own life experiences and use them to talk about money as away to take the anxiety and confusion out of personal finance It became my mission to prove that if I, a journalism and theater double major with a deep rooted hatred for math, could become financially literate, then so could anyone else While my parents were responsible for laying the groundwork for my financial literacy, Ive always been intrigued by how money worked as well.Despite my aforementioned loathing of mathematics, numbers that were attached to dollar signs seemed to make sense to me While I never focused on finance in college, I started reading books about personal finance basics like budgeting styles and credit scores and then moved on to studying economics and investing.These topics would find their way onto the blog as I continued to use a storytelling style to demystify basic financial concepts Over time, Ive cultivated and built strong financial skills and a deep knowledge of all money matters.All of this occurred in the midst of trying to figure out my own financial life and dealing with common millennial scenarios, like notknowing how to negotiate properly for a raise, or working three jobs to make ends meet I ate a lot of leftovers from a certain well known mermaid logo using coffee chain , or trying to figure out how to set up a 401 k , or learning to stand up for myself in awkward financial situations with friends, or trying to handle moving home after college, an unfortunate reality many young professionals are forced to take these days Not only have I survived all of these very real and important twentysomething life experiences,but I started sharing some of them on the blog, and now Im laying my thoughts out for you in this book.As the site began to gain a followingfirst by just friends and family, then a few hundred readers, and eventually thousandsmy writing and thoughts on personal finance also started to catch the attention ofthe media Since then, Ive become a go to expert on millennial personal finance, which has landed me on CBS Sunday Morning and gotten me quoted and interviewed in outlets including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Marketplace, NBC News, New York magazines Web site The Cut, Mashable, and Refinery29, as well as a contributor position with Forbes.Broke Millennial also led me to a new job at a Fin Tech start up focused on comparing financial products for users Under the guidance of the cofounders, who had illustrious careers in banking and a combined 30 years of experience between them, I began to learn the ins and outs of how banks make money and develop their financial products, and the common tricks and traps of dealing with financial institutions Eventually, I even progressed to taking Certified Financial Planner courses to officially authenticate my knowledge on the subject of all things personal finance.After writing the blog for four years and consulting both friends and complete strangers about basic personal finance topics, its clear to me how much anxiety about money still exists, especially for young people like you, and this needs to be fixed now Failure to do so means you may not be able to afford the kids or pets you want to have, there will be no money for your 30 before 30 or 40 before 40 lists, or youll do those things in lieu of saving wisely, and then youll have to work until you kick the bucket because you chose to do your whole bucket list first This may sound dramatic, but the point is that a lack of basic financial education sets you up to be sucked into the stressful black hole of the paycheck to paycheck cycle.The good news is that you can break free of that or avoid it entirely , and Ill show you how Despite what Wall Street and some media outlets want you to believe, money isnt complicated, and it doesnt require complex formulas Financial empowerment does, however, require taking actionable steps toward improving your situation, and Im here to help you figure out those steps.I Hate Boring Financial Stuff, So Why Shouldnt IPut This Book Down Right Now First of all, this book isnt a boring lecture on money The
