MONEY.com Introduces Dollar Scholar, A New Weekly Newsletter Conquering Financial Issues Faced By Millennials

NEW YORK, July 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- "Money is messy. Let's figure it out together," is the mantra of MONEY.com's Dollar Scholar, an inaugural newsletter about millennial finances that launches today. Written by MONEY reporter Julia Glum, the weekly newsletter will be issued every Wednesday morning. Glum will consult with financial experts to cover personal finance, answer burning financial questions and address the trials and tribulations concerning millennial spending habits.

"I know firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate personal finance," says Glum. "With Dollar Scholar, I hope to give readers useful, relatable and digestible advice on money issues big and small in a highly personal way—and to learn alongside them in the process."

Content will include topics such as:

  • Ways to tell if you're overspending
  • Advice on choosing the right bank or credit card
  • How to start saving for retirement, even when you're broke
  • The unspoken rules of Venmo requesting
