How to Become a Millionaire: A Millennial’s Guide

It’s not as hard as you might think.

Disclaimer: I’m not a personal finance expert. While I did study business and economics in college, I’m not a CPA, CFP, MBA, or any other of those confusing acronyms. I haven’t taken my Series 7, 63, 66 or any of that. I probably shouldn’t be advising your parents on how to invest their nest egg, but I hope this article can give you some solid advice on how to set yourself up for success down the road. Deal? Read on.

Millennials and Money

The overwhelming majority of Millennials don’t have a clue about money. Our expectations are out the window, completely divorced from reality.

While some twenty-somethings are quite wise with their money, the vast majority of us make terrible financial decisions when we’re young without knowing the consequences – only to wake up when we’re forty and go, “How on earth did I get here?”

Why Most New Year’s Resolutions Fail (and how to make yours succeed)

You’re focusing on the wrong thing.

It’s January, which means everyone is setting goals (and blogging about them ;). People are hitting the gym, eating healthier, drinking less, and just being “better.”

The problem is, most New Year’s Resolutions will fail.

Statistics say that by January 8, some 25% of resolutions have fallen by the wayside. By the end of February, only 16% of people are still sticking to their resolution, and by the end of the year, only 8% have survived.

That’s like asking 100 people to cross a busy street…and 92 of them get hit by a truck and die.
