A lot of stereotypes have been attached to the Millennial moniker over the past few years as this generation has come of age: entitled, difficult to work with, impossible to please. And while some of these things may be true for a lot of millennials, there aren’t exactly stats to back any of these adjectives up. What there are stats of, however, is the apparent financial ineptitude of a lot of Millennials, due to rising amounts of debt in their generation and seemingly no clue on how to properly manage their finances. Which is where a book like Erin Lowry’s Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together comes in so handy.
In this financial self-help book, Lowry takes the reader on a step-by-step guide for how even the most financially ignorant Millennial who is drowning in debt when they pick the book up can get themselves into the black by the time they put the book down (assuming they follow Lowry’s instructions, of course). Speaking directly to the reader, since the author is of their generation, Broke Millennial is relatable enough to make even the most spoiled 20-something pay attention and absorb some tips on how to keep their financial lives in order.
Or at the very least they’ll call home for money a little less often.
