Joe Holberg Founder & CEO

Joe Holberg had to borrow $40 to apply for college and almost dropped out due to struggles with finances. After graduating, he decided to skip Wall Street for Americorps so he could teach people about managing their finances and building businesses. After stints at Teach For America and Google, he is building Holberg Financial. Their goal is to educate and empower millennials (~22 – 35 year olds) about their finances. They know personal finances suck right now, so they’re making it fun, stress-free, and powerful. If you’ve got a financial question about savings, debt, credit, retirement, or anything else, we’ll get you the answer.
