Earn. Save. LIVE.  It’s a simple principle.  Yet instead for many of us, our current lifestyle is more apt to be described as Consume. Borrow. STRESS.

I’m Kyle Prevost and my partner-in-crime is Justin Bouchard.  We’re a couple of Canadian Millennials who believe that personal finance is about freeing yourself from the shackles of crippling debt, unsatisfying consumerism, and blinding financial illiteracy.  If you want to know a little more about who we are check out our About Us Page.
