YSMA Basic Pass: Monthly Subscription
An all-access pass to the Young Scrappy Money Academy content!
Well hello there, friend! If you've hit this page, chances are you're looking to overhaul your finances.
You might be worried, scared, and have no idea where to begin. You might KNOW already that you need a budget, but everything you've tried in the past just doesn't seem to be working. You may also have credit card debt or a low credit score that needs work. You might even have most of the aspects of your finances on lock, but are looking to learn more about how you can make your money work for you.
If any of that rings a bell, you're in the right place.
Welcome to the Young Scrappy Money Academy, a series of courses on money mindsets, investing, debt, and everything in between. Normally, people purchase our courses individually--but for those on a tighter budget or who can't choose between multiple topics, we're excited to present our membership option.
No matter your current skill level, our step-by-step courses will give you the tools and resources you need to make informed financial decisions.
This membership is divided into six comprehensive courses, containing 100+ videos, dozens of useful templates and exercise, a supplemental glossary of investment terms, and other bonuses.
Together, we’ll cover the following topics:
- How to set S.M.A.R.T. Financial Goals and measure your net worth
- How to get right with your money mindset, including forgiving yourself for past mistakes and preparing to make more money
- How to budget--without needing to save receipts or worry about ongoing tracking
- How to pay down debt in a way that works for you, including more complex strategies such as debt consolidations
- How to raise your credit score, or build credit for the first time
- How to invest your money for the long term, including how to manage your own retirement accounts
My name is Michelle Waymire, and I’m the founder of the Young Scrappy Money Academy, a financial education platform geared towards serving young investors. My passion is providing approachable, actionable financial literacy education to recent graduates, young professionals, artists/entrepreneurs, and LGBTQ+ folx.
I hold my Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee, I’m a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder, and have been quoted/featured in US News, Glamour, Bustle, local NPR, and many more.
When I’m not helping my clients kick butt at all things money-related, I enjoy baking, self-deprecating humor about avocado toast and Burning Man, and bears. I am a sometimes runner, an all-the-time coffee addict, and once built the Disney castle out of Legos. If you ask nicely, I will show you too many pictures of my dogbabies, Harvey and Momo!
I am also a fiduciary financial advisor and financial coach; you can read about my advisory work at www.youngandscrappy.com.
