Chelsea Krost is a Millennial Spokesperson, Forbes Contributor, Speaker, and host of the weekly Twitter Trending Topic, #MillennialTalk each Tuesday at 8pm ET. You can find her personal account on Twitter @ChelseaKrost and her weekly Twitter Chat @MillennialTalk. I wrote a piece for her website called Five Minor Steps You Can Take to Save Over $5,000 in the Next 12 Months discussing how I’ve saved thousands each year and $25,000 every 5-years through purposefully driven lifestyle deflation and other temporary or permanent cutbacks. Hope you enjoy!
A second interview I did with NerdWallet banking writer, Tony Armstrong, for Financial Literacy Month April 2017 was featured this month on Money.com. You can read the article How This 34-Year-Old Man Fixed His Spending and Paid Off $30,000 in Debt focusing on savings tips and strategies I used to pay off $30,000 in debt by age 30 on their website. For follow-up questions, you can find me on on Twitter @PayBalances or Facebook.com/PaychecksAndBalances.
For Financial Literacy Month, April 2017, I was lucky to do a phone interview with NerdWallet writer and retail expert/reporter, Courtney Jespersen. You can read the piece, How One Man Dug Out From $30,000 in Debt, which covers 5 debt tips I use and includes a free 50/30/20 budget calculator on their site. Thank you for the continued support.
We met NerdWallet personal finance expert and writer, Amrita Jayakumar, at FinCon16. Proving the theory “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” we were fortunate that she thought of us again in 2017 when she was putting together an article on personal finance gurus for an upcoming piece. While both Rich and I continue to debate who is the ‘guru’ half of the show, we were happy to be considered with so many other great and talented individuals.
