Young Money CNBCCNBC’s Make It and Bustle announced Wednesday the launch of “Young Money,” a digital video series featuring comedian Akilah Hughes that helps viewers navigate the rough waters of awkward financial moments.

The series takes viewers inside everyday scenarios, from dealing with a frugal roommate to splitting the check with friends to when you should say no to do-it-yourself projects.

“Teaming up with Bustle to co-produce ‘Young Money’ was a no-brainer,” said Jenna Goudreau, CNBC Make It managing editor, in a statement. “The partnership allows us to serve our audiences by offering actionable information on important personal finance topics with a fun twist.”

Episodes in the series launch include:

  • “Young Money: Cheap Roommates and How to Deal”: This episode offers viewers a few tips that can help navigate the hard conversations – or potentially avoid them from the beginning – and stay friends.
  • “Young Money: How to Split the Check with Friends”: This episode gives viewers some pointers on how to properly communicate your cash flow issues without feeling embarrassed.
  •  “Young Money: DIY or DI-Why Bother?”: This episode advises viewers that knowing your budget and limit is key when deciding to involve a professional or take on the task first hand.

“Bustle delivers smart, relatable financial content to millennial women and we’re thrilled to work alongside CNBC Make It to further expand into the space,” said Lindsay Mannering, vice president, editorial strategy at Bustle Digital Group, in a statement. “CNBC’s expertise in financial business news makes them the ideal partner for this series; we’re excited for both of our audiences to experience this collaboration.”

Make It is CNBC’s editorial effort aimed at young professionals.
