In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re featuring six women who can help you pay off debt, grow your wealth, and live the lifestyle you're dreaming of. Thanks to the internet, we have instant access to a range of female bloggers who are experts in "personal finance" and helping to transform our attitudes about money.
Chances are you’ve heard of Suze Orman, Rachel Cruze (Dave Ramsey’s daughter) and Farnoosh Torabi; women who have graced mainstream media outlets with their savvy advice for years. But the reality is, there are lots of super talented female financial writers out there. These six female bloggers are changing perceptions and lives with their online presence:
Michelle @ Fit is the New Poor
Michelle is radically transparent about her family's journey to get out of debt and live a more fulfilling life. What she lacks in high profile publicity, she makes up for with simple truths, warmth, and encouragement. Her approach makes it easy for people to realize that financial freedom is achievable, even when you’re already behind the eight ball.
Erin Lowry @ Broke Millennial
Witty, relevant, and honest, Erin makes topics like drafting your last will and testament approachable without glossing over the critical details. Once you start reading her spirited, often gritty adventures in financial literacy, it’s hard to stop.
Melanie @ Dear Debt
Melanie's blog offers a subtle, cathartic approach to dealing with the financial burden of debt. It's a hybrid between a support group and a financial kick in the pants. Many blogs feature letters written by followers and addressed to the anthropomorphic “Debt.” It is a fresh perspective on the emotional side of emancipation from debt.
