Student Loan Refinancing
One thing that really helped me when it came to paying off my student loans was refinancing. I had around $100,000 in private student loans and the average interest rate was 10.4%. 10.4%!! I came upon Sofi by a recommendation from a friend. I checked them out, did A LOT of research and comparisons and eventually chose to go with Sofi. There are a lot of options but Sofi stood out above the rest. They are designed for the millennial. Simple, straight forward, and provide exceptional service. I was able to refinance for 4.64% which saved me thousands and thousands of dollars. At 10.4% I felt like I was just paying interest every month. Sofi saved me big time!

Free Credit Reports
I have been using Credit Karma for over 5 years now. Their credit service is free and is very useful. My score is updated once every 7 days so I am always on top of any changes.
I have a few investment accounts. I have a couple that are robo-investing and completely hands off. Then I have accounts where I pick my investments. For my hands off account I use Betterment. Betterment is a fantastic company that is great for people that want to invest but don’t want to actively manage their account or don’t know how. For my active trading I use Robinhood. Robinhood provides free trades and has a great, easy to use design.
