From delving into discounts, to tips for staying on track – make sure you check out our 9 ways to balance your student budgets and still have a life at uni!
At the beginning of the month, we kept up with our community over pizza and beer. From all things UX design, to the future of Yolt, it was great to meet so many of our users and share how Yolt is evolving. We also set up a small film studio to catch up with some of our power users and share their stories, capturing why and how they're using Yolt to up their money games. Keep an eye out on our social channels to hear from them! If you’d like to get involved with sharing your Yolt stories or join us at one of our next events, we’d love to hear from you! Just shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Can’t wait for the next Yolt event? Well you’re in luck! After a summer off, we’re roaring back this Autumn with the next talk in our Unthink Tank Series. This time, we are honoured to welcome Lucy Sheridan to the stage. Life coach, influencer, and founder of the #ComparisonFree movement, Lucy will be redefining personal success and online persona.
