Discover [LearnVest] + LearnVest Live!

Guess where I'm going tonight!

Does anyone here use LearnVest? I'm surprised I haven't posted about it earlier, as it is one of the few daily email subscriptions I utilize, to great benefit. Their tagline, "where life gets richer", says it all: for me, their philosophy seems to be about living a fulfilling life within the confines of your budget. Kinda like my tagline, "a beautiful life, budgeted", no? LearnVest + Meaghan Gibbons = a match made in money heaven.

LearnVest, a 2009 start-up focused on educating women about finance, is really like having a super hip, honest girlfriend who is also a savvy financial planner. If you're a newbie, check out personal fianance 101, top money-managing mistakes, and the knowledge center for an introduction. The main way I use LearnVest is through their daily emails, usually human interest stories combined with sound financial advice. They also have a Mint-esque Money Center; I've heard it's less sophisticated, but they aren't trying to sell you products or push credit cards, either. You can also pay a very modest fee to have a personal financial planner.

They're hosting their first "LearnVest Live" in NYC tomorrow night, and I'm excited to be attending. It includes a free Financial Plan, so I'll let you know if I find that useful. It's sold out, but I heard you can get a virtual ticket (and Financial Plan) if you're interested. In the meantime, go sign up for LearnVest!
