About Me

Hi, I’m Rachel!

I’m a blogger, freelance writer, human resources girl, and newlywed. I’m probably a lot like you in that I’m still trying to figure out life after graduation, pay off debt, and work my way up in my career.

After graduating college, I found myself with considerable student loan debt and wasn’t really sure what to do about it. I’m a blog junkie, so I decided to start my own blog (formerally The Latte Budget) to chronicle my financial journey and to teach others about money.

My first website grew more than I could have imagined, and I started to make real money through blogging and freelance writing, which I use to pay off my student loans. In order to continue moving forward, I switched things over to RachelSlifka.com

And a little more about me – I’m obsessed with my pets, Jack and Gin, and I love wine, peanut butter, my family, and learning about money (nerd alert).

On the blog, you can expect me to write about the following:

  • Money
  • How to increase your income
  • Career skills
  • Fashion and frugal finds
  • Blogging
  • Personal development

In addition to blogging, I also run my own freelance writing and blog consulting business. You may have read my work over at Young Adult Money and Money is Not Taboo.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! I love hearing from readers 🙂
