LearnVest is a website that offers information and support for women looking to take control of their finances. In addition to an array of money-related articles and advice columns, the site offers specialty bootcamp programs and budgeting tools that have been designed with women in mind.
You could spend days perusing all the informative articles and Q&As on LearnVest, but you’ll need to sign up for an actual account to really get use out of the site’s latest classes and tools. Tell LearnVest a bit about yourself and link up your bank accounts, credit cards, investment accounts, and loan information just like you would with Mint or any of the other money-tracking websites. Once you’ve chosen a pricing plan that makes sense to you, you can get started taking advantage of the site’s many female-friendly tools. Get your bearings by taking a brief tour around the site, or head directly to your dashboard page to get going. Click on the Financial Inbox to see all your latest transactions automatically parsed out by category, and create a series of budgets based on how much money you have coming in and going out each month. LearnVest will take the data you’ve put in and create visually pleasing graphs that show just how much you’ve spent in various categories so far this week or month.
Upgrade accounts to get access to a number of premium features, like specialized financial courses and personal sessions with a certified financial planner. If you’ve got a burning question that only a financial expert can answer, then you can sign up for a one-time day-pass to get access to LearnVest’s specialized team of money managers for just 36 hours at a time.
