From the expo floor of FinCon17, I'm speaking with Award Winning Personal Finance Author Erin Lowry about her new book Broke Millennial. Her goal is to help young adults to stop acting rich and get their financial life together.

One of the major topics in the book is getting financially naked with your partner before marriage. Given the importance of this crucial money conversation, Erin and I intently focus on that topic during our chat today.

  • Great Podcast! I am a new follower of your site!Can you also discuss tips on how to decrease credit card fees? I believe that more millenial couples are also able to discuss this one esp with most of the people now relying on credit card for emergencies, etc.

    Thank you so much!

    • Hi Gracina! I’m sorry for the major delay in responding. This is a great question! Based on the article you shared with me, this appears to be more about credit card fees for businesses. If that’s what you’re referring to, I’d have to research that a lot more. If you’re talking about reducing personal credit card fees and interest payments, you’re right. That would make for a good show / podcast! I’ll look into it!
