What We Stand For

Here at Teen Finance Tips, we believe in effort and dedication, and we strive to help out everyone that displays these qualities. You can’t help anyone that isn’t willing to help themselves, or accept the help you offer. That’s why we focus on providing helpful finance tips and credit advice to motivated teens and young adults. It’s all on you. If you truly want to succeed in managing your money and credit, we’re here with you every step of the way.

Growing up is tough. So many things thrown at you all at once. Go to college, get a job, now get a better job, pay your bills, buy a car, buy a house… the list goes on. And unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for high school graduates to have very little knowledge about how credit works or how to properly manage their money. If you’re in this boat, you need to know you’re not alone. And it’s really not that bad once you take a step back and allow yourself to digest it all.

We aim to give teens the credit and finance tips we wish we had.

We also believe in community and togetherness. That’s why we offer spots for guest writers, who can then become official Teen Finance Tips Contributing Writers. Everyone has unique experiences and navigates through life’s challenges in their own ways. Adding to the TFT family will only further diversify our advice and better serve you, and all of our other users.
