Generation X and Y now has help navigating a financial minefield. American Express recently released a content-rich, social-media platform called Currency (getcurrency.com).
For young adults in their 20’s and 30’s, Currency offers tips and suggestions on saving and spending, in a voice that speaks to them from more than 25 leading personal-finance writers.
[Can you name the other known personal-finance writers for Currency?]
I was asked to be one of those 25 personal finance writers to contribute true, honest personal finance experiences to Currency. I definitely feel honored.
[Check out my first article: Setting Up Your First Budget]
I really enjoy the launching of this site because it reflects personal finance subjects on a personal basis; one can easily relate to the perils and joys that come with managing our money. Then audience can take what they have learned and share information and financial tips via Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and other applications. Check out Currency.
