The Story of A Richer You
Our story is just beginning and we want you to be a part of it!
We’re building a richer America — and that begins with A Richer You.
A Richer You’s goal is to share everything you need to know about money, simplified. We’re not just building another blog, we’re developing a resource that you can visit and find the answers to any of your financial questions.
Oh, we also advocate for a Universal Basic Income (UBI) to eliminate poverty in America — and we’re giving away 25% of what we make to our readers. To start, that means that you could win $500/month for two years — just for being yourself! You can enter here.
How can a website afford to give away money?
Great question! And a legitimate one.
Many money-focused websites (similar to A Richer You) earn millions of dollars a year via partners. At A Richer You, we work with the same partners (see our “Products” and “Shopping” menus) to help finance our basic income giveaways. We simply return a portion of what we make to our readers (at this point, our goal is to giving away 25% of what we make).
This means that, when you subscribe to our newsletter, set up new investment accounts, refinance your student loans, or shop Amazon from ARicherYou.com, you’re helping us provide more basic income giveaways (hence more opportunities for you to win) — all without costing you a cent!
We also think that government-run lotteries should be eliminated (something that is somehow still uncool to say). Instead, we advocate for prize-linked savings accounts, sweepstakes, and making money with side hustles.
In short, at A Richer You we believe:
- Anyone can become financially secure (and even rich) by taking simple steps to grow their wealth, reduce their debt, and plan for the future. Our blog shares tips and strategies to help create a richer you.
- A Universal Basic Income (UBI) may be able to eliminate poverty. By giving all Americans a very basic living wage we can keep families together, encourage entrepreneurship, and eliminate homelessness and starvation that shouldn’t exist in our 1st World nation. If you aren’t familiar with this concept, read What is a Basic Income? to learn more (it’s a pretty awesome idea).
- The lottery is a scam and unfair tax on Americans that are bad at math (and predominantly low-income). We advocate for the elimination of lotteries — replacing them with prize-linked savings accounts and sweepstakes that are free to enter and allow people to win big prizes (sometimes as much as $2 million). If you want to win big without spending money, take a look at our list of lottery alternatives.
Our future is tied with yours. And as we help you and other Americans reach financial freedom and achieve life goals, we will inevitably expand this section of our website to include your stories!
