What I see with America Today
The way I see it for us millennials, we live in the US when the land of opportunity is getting tougher and tougher. No longer is getting a college degree guaranteed a job towards your career, and the dreams of financial success just keep getting more and more competitive. It’s just a fight for everything, and getting somewhere. Most people still think that if they do everything they’re supposed to (good grades, save money in bank) then everything they want will come true, but the truth is that many times its about your network and who you know, something many people have a minuscule resource of. It’s hard for them to succeed without someone guiding them along the way, and the same is for investing.
Many people don’t have anyone watching over them when they invest, and without guidance it’s a long learning experience before they make any money, and it’s just too detrimental for anyone who doesn’t have high amounts of income.
But it won’t be like that for long. Even though most of us millennials don’t invest, we know that it is important to, and we will. Building financial is the way to live life. For all those who say that they want to do something not for anyone but themselves, building personal wealth is the epitome of that, and it’s unfortunate that 76% of us believe that the only way to gain financial wealth is through their 9 to 5, and saving money in the bank and let it lose value.
Investing in the stock market is the way for us to gain skills and create a risk management mindset, valuable assets for anyone.
If you want to do something for yourself, build that financial wealth, so you can live the life you love with the people you love.
