Help YMOYL help Millennials with Money

In 2017, Your Money or Your Life turns 25. A new generation is trying to find their footing and make their unique contribution in a far more complex and less fair money/financial system. Internet tools make tracking easier for digital natives. Purchasing, investing and advice are a few clicks away. Even so, having a clear, powerful relationship with money is still elusive, especially for creative, innovative and service-oriented young people whose aspirations don't match the opportunities before them. Is there a Your Money or Your Life 2.0 waiting to be born? Help us find out by answering these questions.
