I'm sure I don't have to tell you that the lack of or mismanagement of $$$ causes a lot of headaches.
Whether married or single, stressing about money (or the lack thereof) sucks. For those that are married, it can cause an otherwise healthy relationship to flounder.
But being in debt is just as miserable for single people. Like me, you may only have yourself to get you out of your mess.
And the the whole one income thing isn't the only challenge. You also don't have a teammate or accountability partner to keep your eyes on the prize (i.e. being debt-free!).
Whether you're single or married, you're NOT alone.
There ARE resources that exist to help YOU change your relationship with money, so that YOU can change YOUR life.
Then I have the solution for you!
I want to help you take control and start living the life you've always dreamed about. Not the one you're stuck with currently.
And not to graduate college with a mountain of debt and a mediocre paying job.
Student loan debt is not a consolation prize. Or a blanket that will keep you warm at night. Rather it's a bad dream that you can't pinch yourself hard enough to wake up from.
I've been there.
After struggling for YEARS to figure out my own money (with tons or trial and error), I finally got it right. And KNEW I had to pay it forward.
Let me help you start to climb your way out.
Being bogged down by student loan debt from law school has always made me feel like I couldn't start saving for my future.
But this course provided so many different lessons, examples and great ideas how someone like me can start saving while still chipping down at all that debt.
Hearing all of Liz's success stores - the good, the bad and the ugly of how we can all live a more frugal (NOT cheap) lifestyle, make extra money and start paying down debt was innovative and encouraging.
If Liz can do it all on her own, why can't I?
Money is just a tool - not a curse or a blessing.
In the last three years, I've:
I don't want you to have to struggle like I did!
I wish it hadn't taken me years to haphazardly learn everything I have to help me achieve the above results. I would have loved to find a guide, a course that understood MY needs, but it seemed every resource out there was geared towards people like my parents.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that - love you mom and dad!)
But, I don't have a mortgage or a college fund I need to build up for my kids.
I'm in my 20's and my biggest concern was and is paying off my shiny, new law degree. I wanted strategies that worked for ME - a single, millennial saddled with way too much student loan debt!
And when I didn't find it, I created Conquer Your Finances.

I also learned about different tools to manage my money and set financial goals. Liz made me think about money like I've thought about it before.
Now I'm conscious of my spending habits, my debt and cutting back on my expenses, while still having enough money leftover for the stuff I really need.
Hi there, I'm Liz.
When I finished law school and started living in the real world, I realized I knew nothing about how to handle money. I decided to take control of my finances and paid off over $6,000 in credit card debt in just FIVE months by learning everything I could about personal finance and leveraging my abilities to make some extra money on the side.
I've been blogging about personal finance and my journey to debt freedom for over two years and have paid off over $18,000 in total debt, while still saving over $25k for my future. I'm truly passionate about sharing my knowledge of personal finance and helping others start conquering their own finances.
Thanks for stopping by - I look forward to helping you in your own financial freedom journey!
