Our mission:

“My Millennial Guide is committed to helping our readers follow the smart money and increase their earning potential”

With our approachable style and clear, concise instructions, we hope to educate our readers and help them make the best financial decision for them and their families.

We pride ourselves on having the best finance reviews, promotions and personal finance products and services. We would never recommend something we haven’t tried ourselves.

My Millennial Guide is designed to help people with their money and all the right money moves like the pros. The level of savings in the United States is terrible, and we have a student loan crisis and retirement crisis that needs to be dealt with.

Here are some statistics that’ll illustrate this point:

  • Only one-third of Americans keep a monthly budget
  • Almost 70% of Americans would struggle with a $1,000 emergency
  • Total household debt is over $4 Trillion
  • The current savings rate is 5.6%
  • 35% of people have at least one credit card or loan in collections
  • Median retirement savings for working families is only $5,000

We want to help people to become better at saving money and more importantly making more money.

Our way to combat this is by showing our readers smart ways to earn side income outside of their 9-5 job.

This will also be done by teaching people and informing them of resourceful money tools they can use to better manage their financial life.

We have segments on the blog relating to side hustles, jobs, investing, money apps, online business, money management, home buying and budgeting that can help put more money back in American’s pockets. This provides a different perspective to help people relate and learn.

Take away:

My Millennial Guide is a finance community empowering Millennials to take part in better money habits. Millennial Money made easy.

Our story:

In 2013, our founder Brian Meiggs graduated from college with a degree, as well as $30,000 worth of debt. Thanks to smart side hustles, budgeting, and receiving regular payments from his finance job, he was about to pay off his mountain of debt in just 12 months. Afterward, he created My Millennial Guide to help guide Millennials to become financially free in record time.

My Millennial Guide was born.

Our vision:

You work hard for your money and value your time. That’s why we provide resources and guidance to help consumers with personal finance advice like reducing debt and making sound financial decisions. Read and get access to all our learning material and articles so you can continue to understand how to make better financial decisions.

Our business:

My Millennial Guide is focused on safeguarding people’s hard-earned money. We are a consumer-centric personal finance website that aims to not only rectify financial mistakes but also prevent them from happening again in the future.
