For young adults, a bright financial future requires two things, not just one.
Steady Income + Solid Plan = Bright Financial Future
It takes a steady income, and a solid plan for what to do with it. If you’re like most people, you’ve put nearly all of your attention on the first of these. There’s nothing wrong with that – finding a way to sustainably earn a living, which matches up with your talents, interests and values is an important – and sometimes elusive – goal. Depending on your choice, it may take quite a bit of time, training and education to position yourself for success. And because the choice is such a personal one, it’s natural for this part of the equation to dominate your attention.
But a steady income, all by itself, is not enough to ensure a strong long-term financial position. You need a solid plan to go along with it. Few people realize the importance of this when they’re just starting out, but even those who do have a hard time developing such a plan. It can seem like the world expects you to already know all about how to manage your money, but doesn’t provide a good way for you to learn. You’ve been responsibly pursuing the first half of the equation – but what about the second?
