There is a dire need among youth to have a better understanding of saving and investing as these two habits will eventually determine their financial future. So let us begin exploring with the first step that is learning.
At times, I wonder why hard working young people don’t even think about letting their money work even harder for them. I know how hard it is to manage money without proper financial knowledge and basic investment skills. It does not matter how hard it is, one cannot simply ignore the fact that managing money is one of the integrals of life.
You might have to learn to sacrifice on many of your expenses now, but doing so will ensure that you have a comfortable life in future. You cannot deny another fact of life that while we are young we have the ability to face challenging situations and hardships to earn our bread and butter and have some fun in life too. But what when we grow old and get weaker, will it be possible to bear similar physical and mental pressures? You are a better judge of it. This is the key reason why one should start financial planning as early as possible.
You might find a different reason to begin early saving and investing. You might want to own a car at some point in future. Saving some money for financial emergencies is important for every individual. Then who wouldn’t want to own a house, and the list goes on. So, when you have identified the reasons why and for when you are starting to save and invest the only thing left is to decide how to invest.
