Money has the power to cause great stress, but it doesn’t have to. A little studying and systematizing goes a long way. Below, I share my own financial philosophies and best practices, as well as tips, tools and coaching exercises that I use with clients to help get their finances in order too. Our financial lives are never fixed – they are constantly evolving as our lives change; these posts will help you manage the ebb and flow with greater ease.
Be sure to check out the Life After College infographic poster that I put together with Mint.com — that’s a great jumping-off point for getting your money matters in order.
Before I jump in to the post round-up for this category, I just have to squeal with glee and share a video from the blog post SUZE ORMAN KNOWS WE EXIST!!!

Guest post written by Stephanie Halligan There’s an inspiring (and terrifying) TEDTalk circulating the web. In this video, clinical psychologist Dr. Meg Jay, author of The Defining Decade: Why Your 20s Matter and How to Make the Most of Them, boldly and fervently proclaims that your 20s are the most important, defining decade of your […]
Today’s post is by Leah Manderson; this is the first in a three-part money series. It seems like 20-somethings get the short end of the stick when it comes to money. Entry-level salaries.
