So, I’m turning 27 this week. With the realization that entering into my “late-20s” requires a little more financial know-how than I was previously capable of in my mid-20s (& because my student loans just truly never seen to go down), I began the hunt for someone to advise me on my finances so I wouldn’t find myself needing to apply for a cash advance. A financial advisor, if you will. Speaking of student loans, people only start repaying it when they get a job that earns them above the threshold, so this shouldn’t be something people worry about. Plus, the repayments are small amounts anyway, so they are not very noticeable. It may be worth checking out sites like SoFi for more information regarding student loan payments.
As I mentioned in my winter life update, I’ve been checking out LearnVest for quite some time. Their mission (& this is not a sponsored post, I promise, kids) is to change the way people think about money. They’re also big on making the act of getting financial advice affordable, for example, there are loads of free resources online that teach you all kinds of financial tips, even how to save 1 million dollars in 10 years if you’re feeling ambitious! I’ve heard LV’s founder, Alexa von Tobel, speak a few times, and she, in an incredibly intelligent way, makes the whole money thing sound pretty important to figure out quite early in your adult life. LV is big on giving you small tasks you can tackle slowly over time, so I thought it wouldn’t be too overwhelming, and was worth a shot.
