These can very well apply too to young professionals who have just started working (or are working for few years now).
Going fresh out of college was an ecstatic feeling during my turn. "Finally, I'm in control of my life!"
But I soon realized the new set of issues every young man encounters in that phase of one's life - which I believe rests primarily on deciding for yourself the life that you want to have. You make your own rules, your own drive, your own roadmap, without the teachers who were once showing us that single one direction everyone takes.
It wasn't easy.
There were certainly lots of expectation from society, school and of course, family. And it didn't take me long before I realized how properly managing my finances is so critical in my plan to be "more free" in doing the things I should be focusing on in life - a cause I can eternally attach myself with. And so this blog, in some way, was born out of that desire.
How about you? What are your realizations with few years of working experience under your belt after that glorious moment of graduation? Hope this lights a bulb over your head.
Happy Labor Day!
May God, the first laborer, bless the fruits of your hands!
Have fun investing (with you and your money working)!
