Is there really that big of a difference between managing your money as a millennial compared to being a Gen Xer or Baby Boomer? As a millennial who has read numerous personal finance blogs and books, have attended my fair share of finance conferences, and have been writing and interviewing others on personal finance for over 5 years now, my answer is yes, yes and a BIG yes!
Luckily, I’m not the only one who thinks this way and Erin Lowry, the blogger behind BrokeMillennial.com, wrote a book (also named Broke Millennial) that focuses on money for millennials specifically.
Although when it really comes down to it, the principles of personal finance don’t really change generation to generation. But the fact still remains, we are a very different generation than those before us. We experienced different things and sometimes speak a different language. And that’s why I found it so refreshing to read Erin’s book that really got me. Got my struggles with money and offered practical and modern solutions.
