Personal Finance Advice for Young Professionals, from a Young Professional

Chris Bibey from Finance.Info recently asked if I could share some financial advice for young professionals. I loved the questions Chris asked me and would be really interested to see how other young professionals would answer them as well.


Source: Katie Robinson is the mastermind behind the website, Ask the Young Professional. As a young professional herself, she shares top of the line information and advice on everything from budgeting to choosing a career.
