Living Young & Free Field Guide

Survive the wild world of money and finance

Understanding how to manage and grow your money is a fundamental skill that most young people are missing. Unfortunately, personal finance is just not taught in many schools. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with practical tips to get a handle on your money.

Think of Jill as your personal money coach


Jillian Blaney is our Young & Free Alberta Spokester and her job is to be the voice of the 25-and-under Alberta crowd. She writes a daily finance blog where she's tasked with translating financial mumbo jumbo into plain English. Not sure what the difference between a loan and a lease is? No problem, Jill's written about that and every other finance topic you can imagine.

In addition, Jill produces videos, features deals and events throughout the province and highlights young entrepreneurs, musicians, philanthropists and other young adults making an impact in the communities that Servus Credit Union serves.

Unsure of where to turn for financial advice? Ask Jill a question on Twitter or by email. If she doesn't know the answer, she'll get it. Jill has the entire Servus Credit Union team behind her.
