Who taught you how to start saving and investing?
“My Parents Talked More about Sex Than They Talked about Money, and My Parents Never Talked about sex.”
While at a friend’s house, one of their daughters, a recent graduate from a Big-10 school in the Midwest said, “I got this 401 J-K thing and I don’t know what to do. I never learned about this in school.”
That sparked the idea for a Movement to help educate young people on investing for their future.
Most all of today’s financial advisors are focused on helping older people with their rollovers from their retirement plan and very little attention is directed to the people just starting out in their careers.
The simple fact is, “Time is your best friend for investing.” The sooner a young person starts and learns the habit of saving, the better off they will be.
So think of his talk as the answer to the statement, “If I only knew then what I know now” delivered by your “Favorite Uncle.”
Pay yourself first!
Understand the fundamentals and have a future of financial success.
Truth is, most people don’t have a strategy or plan, but no real methodology, or thought behind it.
Others say, “Well, I will start when I am making serious money, I can barely get by on what I receive in my check after taxes now.”
What I mean by that is, you have to start saving right off the top of your check or before you get money deposited into your account.
Most people say, “well I have all of these bills and when I get done paying those, then I will put some of that is left away for saving.” WRONG!
The Dollars you invest today are the ones that compound the most later in your life.
