Rewrite your money story

There’s nothing insufficient about you or your funds.

You can be good with money

Do you avoid checking your balances—because it’s just easier not to know? Skip the shame, no one is born knowing how to handle money. It’s a muscle you can build.

You can be good with your money (without being good at math.) Need a hand to hold? Consider ours extended. We’ll teach you how to stop the transfer dance, simplify your setup, and say goodbye to overdrafting. At the end of the month, you’ll even have money left over. Sound like a dream? It’s closer than you think!

We’re here to help

Want to write a new money story? We won’t shame you, guilt you, or force you to eat ramen. Here’s how it works.

It’s so liberating to have control over your money and not let your money control you.

Do you feel like you’re bad with money? You’re not alone

Michole was getting her PhD in Mathematics and managing money was stressful for her too. It’s really a catch-22 when you start: you don’t want to look at your money because it stresses you out, but the more awareness you bring to it, the less stressed you get. However, once she got started, she paid off $8,000 in nine months. Plus, she doesn’t feel so ashamed and guilty about money anymore.

What’s your pain point? We can help!

Help! I don’t know where to start.

When no one ever taught you what the heck to do with money (sure would’ve been nice to learn this in school instead of say…square dancing), it’s no wonder you’re a little lost!
