Hey there! My name is Taylor O’Halloran! A business school graduate and dog lover who just couldn’t handle being in the real business world, so I started my own. I’m really glad you’re here. I’ve devoted my life to teaching you all about money and how to make and save more of it!
I’m a pretty average 20-something, I have student loan debt and as of right now I still live at home because apartments are expensive and I ain’t got that kinda money right now, but I will. I’ve spent my entire life on the internet, from Myspace to Habbo Hotel, I’ve seen it all in my time.
I started notquiteanadult.com because I wanted a focused place where young adults (and even full-fledged adults) can go to learn how to navigate the financial world. From the day I turned 18, I’ve been so confused about money and don’t want people to feel the same way I have.
I want to share my life with you guys as a way to show that you can make absolutely anything happen if you put your mind to it! Money is just money and you can make it work for you.
facts about me
I have a bachelors degree in business administration with a minor in psychology. I started as a social work major, then I was a psychology major, and ended up in business. As you can see I had no idea where I was going or what I wanted to do. Makes sense I’d end up as my own boss, eh?
Oh, I’m Canadian, eh? I’d assume that you could tell that I’m Canadian because I ended that last fact with eh. I was born in a super super super small town called Summerside in the smallest province in the country, Prince Edward Island. I moved to Ontario when I was super young.
I’m obsessed with dogs. I’ve had a bunch of dogs in my life, the most recent of which is named Marshmallow. He’s a long-haired dachshund and he’s my best friend and my entire life. He’s also super cute! I want another one as soon as possible, please.
I was a swimmer in high school. I was hands down the worst person on the team, but it made me happy and I made a lot of really good friends through that swim program!
I have two siblings. For the first 14 years of my life, it was just me and my older brother, Justin. Then when I was 14, I was #blessed with a baby sister who is now one of my best friends. A 14 year age difference makes me feel like a pretty cool older sister most of the time.
what should you start with on not quite an adult?
The answer to that question depends on what your goals are! So I’ve divided this into a couple different sections so you can start with whatever tickles your fancy. I added a couple of my personal favourite posts as well as the ones that have been the most popular with YOU, the reader.
