Hi, I’m Michela!

I have been a personal finance junkie for as long as I can remember, and I created Break Your Budget as a platform to help other young women in their 20’s navigate their finances. After graduating college with a Finance Degree and working in the industry, I realized how fortunate I was to have a formal financial education and actually understand what to do with my money.

What I didn’t realize was how difficult it actually was to apply everything I knew to MY OWN personal finances. A few years of trial & error later… I am now sitting on a 6-figure net worth at the age of 25, and I’m here to help you do the same.

Managing your money and making financial decisions isn’t easy and it is definitely not intuitive. My goal is to make personal finance simple, straightforward, and easy to implement, because the key to my success has been following the basics, consistently. So if you’re ready to take your financial power back and sit in the driver’s seat of your financial future, make sure you stick around!
