Welcome to Young Adult Money! We are happy you are here.
We are a millennial personal finance and lifestyle blog. Everything we do centers around helping you make more, save more, and live better.
Started by David Carlson in 2012, we’ve grown into something much larger than a one-person blog. We have a team that puts providing value to our community above everything else. Content is curated by our team of writers, each with their own unique views and perspectives.
While we love saving money and living better, we think increasing income and making more money can have the absolute biggest impact on your finances and, in turn, your life.
David wrote a book that came out in early 2016 called Hustle Away Debt. The book is about how to utilize side hustles to increase your income and pay off debt faster.
David and his wife graduated with around $100,000 in student loans. They first focused on increasing income at their 9-5 and cutting expenses, but eventually moved on to side hustles. Side hustle income has more than offset their monthly student loan payment (over $1,000) the past three years.
If you want to make more money, whether in your career or through a side hustle or small business, you can read all of our Make Money posts.
Some of our favorite make money posts include:
We love saving money. Whether it’s through couponing, being shopping around for the best products and services at the best price, or just simple automated savings, we are all about saving money.
Some of our favorite save money posts include:
The final piece of the puzzle is living better. We believe in continuous self-improvement and being intentional about personal development. But ultimately lifestyle comes down to enjoyment.
Of course not everything fits under these three categories. We talk about everything else you’d expect out of a personal finance and lifestyle blog, such as insurance, investing, banking, student loans, and more.
Our focus on millennials, or in other words, those in their 20s and early 30s, allows us to address the unique challenges and aspirations of the millennial generation.
These challenges and aspirations include, but are not limited to:
- Unprecedented student loan debt
- A focus on lifestyle design
- A world filled with technology that makes opportunities endless, regardless of personality, physical location, skill, or expertise
- Demand for true value out of every product and service they consume
We are here to provide the tools and information to millennials that will help them achieve their dreams and ultimately make more, save more, and live better.
