I believe everyone needs a side hustle.  Something you do outside your job to keep life exciting, keep your mind sharp, and maybe even earn some extra income. But experts argue that having a side hustle is even more important if you’re a woman.

I’m on a mission to get better with my money.  After seven years of experimenting, failing, and growing, I‘m figuring out how to overcome the most common financial blunders of my 20s.   That said -  as I navigate new relationships, investing, and saving for retirement -  I’m facing a whole set of challenges that will surely get bigger by the time I hit 30.

  Let’s be honest — Money can feel overwhelming.  It's complicated, frustrating, and you don’t want to deal with it. I know the feeling. But hiding and hoping for the best won't work out in your favor. One of my goals this year was to improve my finances. It took me 6 months to start, but last week I had a reality money-check.
