Today’s guest is Andrew Schrage, co-owner of Money Crashers, a personal finance and lifestyle website catering to young adults that attracts almost a million readers a month and provides him an income that rivals his former hedge fund salary. The site launched in 2009 and so as far as financial websites for young adults go, it’s one of the early birds, pioneers. The site is dedicated to providing practical financial education, actionable tips, and strategies that can be easily implemented in your daily life as a way to improve your lifestyle and decrease stress.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  • How he broke the news that he was leaving to his boss…
  • Advice for anyone starting a personal finance blog today. How to differentiate yourself?
