Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties: Beth Kobliner
In Conversation with Mikaela Lefrak
- This event has passed.
With more than 500,000 copies sold, the New York Times bestseller Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties (originally published in 1996) has served as the financial bible for young people, laying out in simple, no-nonsense terms, exactly what they need to know.
Now revised and updated to address the new financial challenges of today’s millennials, Kobliner—who was selected by President Obama to serve on his Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans—tackles the issues faced by a generation that came of age in the wake of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
Tackling game-changing developments ranging from robo-advisors to the gig economy, the book includes actionable advice to help millennials navigate sky-high rents, strict mortgage lending standards, and stagnating wages, and adopt healthy financial habits for the rest of their lives. Kobliner’s tips cover the following, and more:
- How new student loan repayment plans can save you money
- Why it’s vital to begin saving for retirement now with a 401(k) or IRA
- The lowdown on new low-fee investments, including index funds, TDFs, and ETFs
- Financial tips for same-sex couples
- How to avoid buying more house than you should—and when renting makes more sense
One of the nation’s leading authorities on personal finance for young people and young adults, Kobliner is an advocate, commentator and journalist, and author of the New York Times bestseller Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not!). She has been a staff writer for Money magazine and a contributor to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Redbook, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
