People like money. Making it, having it, and spending it can be a lot of fun. Who doesn’t like lavish vacations and dinners at fancy restaurants?

The problem is that people don’t like thinking about money. 85% of Americans are occasionally stressed about money. 30% of Americans state that their financial situation is a constant source of stress.

Many essentials like rent and groceries cost more than ever, and technological advances have made devices like computers and smartphones a requirement to participate in modern society. Student loans have also ballooned in size. The average borrower leaves college with more than $37,000 in debt. Despite these facts, inflation-adjusted household earnings for the bottom 60% of Americans haven’t changed much in the past fifty years. Add in how complicated the financial world can be, and it’s no wonder that so many people worry about money.

I write about personal finance. The day-to-day money stuff that people have to deal with: credit cards, bank accounts, investing, budgeting, and saving for the future. My goal is to break down complicated financial concepts and products in a fun-to-read, easy-to-understand manner that leaves readers with an idea of something they can do to improve their financial life.

Let me help your publication reach readers with important advice about personal finance. Whether you need someone to review a new brokerage or bank account, compare credit card rewards programs, explain how to build a budget, or break down any other complicated personal finance concept I’m here to help.
