10 Things You Must Know About Money by 35

money-1144553_640

Here are 10 of the top things I think everyone should know about money by 35.

  1. Money and finances aren’t something you are taught in school and most parents won’t know enough to help you, so you need to take matters into your own hands and get self-educated (Books, podcasts, blogs)
  2. The difference between good and bad debt, as not all debt is bad.
  3. The rule of 72 (How long it takes your money to double based on the interest rate, PS this also works against you such as with credit cards)
  4. Compounding interest and the benefits of knowing that young so you can start using it to your advantage before time runs out.
  5. The old saying of “It’s not how much you make but rather how much you keep” should go a step farther and say its “how much money you keep that actually creates more income for yourself”
  6. You should pay yourself first at least 10-15% before any other expenses or you will look back 5 years from now after working 40-50 hours a week and not have anything to show for it.
  7. Money needs to be invested, leaving all of it in your savings account will actually be eroded over time, you will have less buying power and inflation will make it less valuable.
  8. Understanding the power of leverage, through real estate and real estate investing.
  9. You will most likely not get rich overnight and you have a higher chance to get hit by lightning twice than win the lottery so save your money and don’t waste it there.
  10. Things will cost more and more each year due to inflation, your salary probably won’t keep up so you will need to get some side hustles to live the lifestyle you may want.
And 11 as a bonus :). : Stop comparing your money and wealth to others, you are on your own path and taking small steps at a time will get you there.

At Last Millennials = Real Estate Investors

A recent Forbes article highlighted millennials as being the next real estate investors of single homes. You can read the full article by clicking here Why Millennials Are Poised To Be The Next Wave Of Single Family Rental Investors

This is a great article and one that is spinning millennials and real estate investing in a positive light. So happy to read these types of articles.
As it mentioned, we have access to so much more information than any generation has had before. Information that is accessible without needing to step outside our homes. Everything is available at our fingertips: Real estate podcasts, blogs, websites, mentors, courses and so much more. We are living in a lucky time where we can learn anything from anywhere and it is time we start to realize this.
We are slowly modernizing this entire industry and due to our population size, companies and industries are adapting to many of our asks and needs. I do think one day we will no longer be working with realtors as the main method of purchasing homes…. What do you guys think?
On another note, Millennials saw their parents go through the crash of 2008 and 2009 and even though they are cautious when investing in general for the fear of losing it all, I think some are starting to see the opportunity through investing in cash flowing assets that have tenants paying down your mortgage principals with each and every payment.
We can’t control the next downturn but at least we can prepare for it as we know one day it will be back. Let us prepare by getting the education and resources in place so that we are in the power to buy and purchase more of these assets when they go on discount next time around. Let’s use the technology to move us ahead and give us those answers.

Why Millennials Need to Develop Investing Habits

Financially Optimistic Millennials Aspire to be Millionaires, Retire Early

TD Ameritrade survey shows how millennials are redefining life milestones

This recent survey identified millennials as being a very positive and aspirational group, another example of the opposite negative labels we see far too often. Although US focused you can most likely draw similar conclusions for Canada.

“Millennials are graduating at record rates and it’s great to see that like most previous generations of college students, young people are optimistic about the future. On average, survey respondents expect to land a job in their chosen field and be completely financially independent by age 25,” notes JJ Kinahan, chief strategist for TD Ameritrade. “This is a financially optimistic group that’s feeling positive about the economy, the job market and their own plans. However, they will need to develop saving and investing habits that will help them reach some pretty big goals.”

The #1 trigger for gaining financial independence is for a millennial to move out of their parents home, the most logical conclusion to that is for them to be investing in their first home to do that.

You can access the full report by clicking here.
