Growing Up Doesn’t Have to Suck

The fact is, talking about money, career stuff, and becoming an “adult” can be awkward and intimidating.

That’s why this site is here. It’s your online best friend.

This is a place where we talk transparently about managing money, paying debt, building credit, and living a financially responsible, amazing life. Here’s a good place to start.

More about the founder…

Hi, I’m Taylor, the person behind this site. Here’s a bit of backstory: I graduated in 2011 with a decent job but no idea how to manage money or how to be an actual adult. So I did what any “wanna be” adult would do and spent an obscene amount of money on happy hours, heels, and bottle service.

Around 2013ish, I got the itch to start doing things a bit differently because, although I got paid pretty well, it didn’t feel like I had much of a direction or goals.

So I got serious about budgeting and paid off some lingering student loan debt to get that out of the way.

Fast forward a bit and I started documenting my story here on this blog.
