Catie Hogan is the Founder and President of Hogan Financial Planning, LLC. She’s also the author of the humorous, informative book The Millennial’s Guide to Getting Your Sh*t Together, and an accomplished satirist and humor writer. Catie is on a mission to help young adults, particularly women and those in marginalized communities, become more financially literate and empowered. She does this using simple explanations of complex topics, personal anecdotes, and humorous relatability.
Catie understands what it means to be a broke Millennial. She finished college with six-figures in student loans, worked entry-level jobs to make ends meet, and had no idea how or where to save and invest money. But after reading a few personal finance books, she realized she was one of millions of young adults in this situation—and it was that moment that changed her life. She became a traditional financial planner, and in 2016 launched her own firm to focus on helping Millennials. Through her blog, podcast, and speaking gigs, Catie is putting a fresh, new face on the fundamentals of personal finance.
In 2016, Catie launched her own firm, Hogan Financial Planning, to focus on helping Millennials build successful futures. Known as the “funny financial planner” for her ability to blend humor and finance in her talks and writing, she’s on a life mission to promote financial literacy.
Catie’s writing can be found on her blog, Get It Together, The Scold, and AOL Finance, and she hosts the “Get It Together with Catie Hogan” podcast. She’s been quoted in Men’s Health, The Christian Science Monitor, Bankrate.com and NerdWallet, and has been a featured guest on several podcasts. She spends her evenings writing and performing with Atlanta’s award-winning comedy company, Sketchworks, and her satire has been published in McSweeney’s, The Belladonna Comedy, Funny or Die, and many others.
Here at NYSCI we always try to be creative and fun when throwing workshops for our students. So when it came time to throw one for Financial Literacy we were a bit worried. The subject matter is not exactly inherently fun. However, Catie was able to walk a fine line between fun and realistic. Our students came away with real advice for young people. As someone who has attended other Financial Literacy workshops thrown by financial institutions, I can say Catie’s workshop was so much more engaging and that aided in our students being able to retain a vast amount of information.
Catie also catered the information for our demographic. Making sure to hit the subjects that really affect young people. Many of our students wanted to talk about student loans, so she did a big piece of her presentation about that subject. They also wanted to learn more about saving, so she came up with a plan to help our students save. Lastly, Catie removes the doubt people have about being financially literate. She acknowledges that the subject is vast, but that anyone with some interest can master it.
