Firstly: our CEO.
Cooking? She has literally burnt rice multiple times. Life Insurance? Does she have it? Who knows (spoiler: not her). Red flags? Ignores every single one. Yikes.

Past Adulting Glow Ups
I’ve needed something like Real Adulting 101 in my life for a long time. One of my main struggles in finding my independence as an adult has been with doing taxes. It frustrates me that something so major could have been left out of the school system. But now I have a resource that completely understands the level of learning that I’m at with no shame or judgement. The other thing I love about this website is the variety in courses. There are lessons on this site that were not even on my radar! That realization should have been overwhelming, but the breakdown of the lessons truly make me like I can confidently do this at my own pace, around my own schedule. The site is easy to follow yet thorough; Brittany didn’t leave a stone unturned. I’m excited not only to keep learning here but to share the knowledge that I gain with my friends and family.
A new level of financial confidence!
Brittany is the fairy godmother of finances! Her courses are easy to follow, inspiring, educational and relevant!
Learning about finances has never been easy for me, but her courses and information are formatted in a way that make the information stick!
I am already so inspired and taking the steps to better my financial journey thanks to her. I can’t wait to see what else Real Adulting 101 has to offer!
The site is easy to use and professionally done. I feel really catered to, like my needs/wants as the learner are being respected and cared for, both through the constant desire for feedback and how easy it is to reach out for support.
Life is hard! I feel like this platform is going to help me with that. I’m energized by the different courses available and excited to get started on my learning.
I wish I had this sooner!
The platform is phenomenal! So many great topics that I wish I knew in high school. Great value for money and so excited to keep going through all the courses to further my knowledge and share my learnings with friends and family!
My friends and I all got memberships together and it was actually so much fun. Our dorm has never looked better and we’re all feeling super motivated and I can’t wait to start my next course!
Money Well Spent!
I have always struggled when it came to managing my finances and my wallet has never been happier! I finally feel capable of understanding how to budget, invest, and save my money and I’m just about to start Real Estate 101 as I’m looking to buy my first home!
Learned so much!
I started by just wanting to get some advice on Real Estate and then got hooked and ended up taking 10 more courses. Now my house is cleaner, my bank accounts are automated and my investing portfolio is working for me! Highly recommend!
It was really nice making new friends at Real Adulting 101 and sharing our tips on everything we learned in the courses! The accountability of the community really helps keep you motivated and learning!
I’ve loved every second of taking courses with Real Adulting 101! My personal finance skills have never been so good and I can’t wait to start my next course!

Learn anywhere from our app!
Most of us feel like we’re behind in life and scrolling through Instagram can amplify that feeling. But in reality, most of us are struggling with the same kinds of issues and are feeling just as challenged.
Between student loan debts, work demands, feeling unsure if we should invest for retirement while the world is burning, the pressures of balancing identifying red flags with the fact that our eggs have a shelf life, let alone remembering to keep toilet paper stocked in our house—the responsibilities of adult life can often feel overwhelming, stressful, and chaotic.
With an arsenal of knowledge and tools in our back pocket, we want to guide anyone who wants to spend less time figuring out how to be an adult and spend more time living it. Real Adulting 101 is a community that supports personal growth through an online platform with curated courses, resources, and tools to make adulting as easy as possible.
It’s up to us to craft a life of meaning and fulfillment, and we’re here to guide you in making decisions and implementing change that will help you thrive in life.
Members get unlimited access to all 20+ courses, downloadable workbooks, additional resources (budget templates, portfolio builders, home checklist, etc.) and our ever growing community. As we grow, you’ll have access to additional perks such as our Book Clubs, our Q&A’s, and our 1:1 database of coaches to help further implement your learning.
Great question! We know that a lot of this information is out there on Youtube or in blogs. Though we think all of these resources are awesome and definitely connect with some people, we believe that these forms of education are not efficient learning strategies for the majority of individuals. If they were, the statistics around young adults and finances, home ownership, health, etc. wouldn’t be as scary as they are. We interviewed and surveyed a large group of young adults around what works for them when it comes to learning and developed Real Adulting 101 off of YOUR answers. So let’s get into what actually makes us different:
All Inclusive: Our platform carries a large range of courses and educators so that you don’t have to spend all of your time trying to research a different solution and educator for every single area of your life.
Actionable Steps: We’ve made sure that each course has clear, actionable steps to support all of your learning. We believe that learning is great, but that the implementation of your learning is even better! Actionable steps may include taking a quiz to find your investment risk level, filling out a home ownership checklist, discussion prompts around money with your partner, journaling to help you get the most out of your therapy session and so much more!
Community: We know that adulting can feel isolating and competitive. I would say most of us feel like we’re behind when comparing ourselves to others. We want to build transparency around the adulting journey and to help connect you with others who are on a similar path. Share your goals, your wins, your challenges and your questions.
Resources: We are constantly looking to either connect our members with the best resources needed for their adulting journeys, or develop them ourselves.
Tools: We’re taking out as much of the grunt work as possible. We help you easily secure all of the tools you may need in your adulting life (sometimes with a RA101 exclusive discount!)
The curriculum for each course is dependent on the Adulting Guide and the subject they’re covering. Every lesson within the course consists of a video in which our Adulting Guide educates via a presentation, hands on learning, examples, and more. Our courses come with workbooks and actionable steps to help you further implement your learning into your life.
Each course is made up of 4 – 25+ video lessons. These video lessons are 3 to 15 minutes in length each. We know life can be overwhelming and we want to make the information as bite sized and efficient as possible. Our members should feel like they are able to implement their learning within a 15 minute transit ride.
