Welcome to Millennial Money Minute! I’m Caitlin, and I am here to offer you free financial advice and tips. Please feel free to leave comments or email me with your questions. I would love to know what topics are most important to you.

Personally, my belief that money is within my control was formed only after I learned various strategies to save and make money. I’ve had to overcome my own financial struggles, and I want to help others feel in control of their financial futures as well as clear out any obstacles they may have today.

As a result, I am dedicated to empowering millennials to make sense of their money, quickly and easily — within just a few minutes of time each day.
