This blog will help parents and young adults understand their relationship with money and learn how to be financially free. This blog has nothing to do with accumulating wealth, but everything to do with helping young adults understand the value of money.
Being financially is probably the pinnacle of most peoples lives….but it has nothing to do with having lots of money. It is not an event.
What an awesome feeling it must be to achieve financial freedom. I wonder if you scream from the rooftops that you are financially free. How do you measure being financially free?
Unfortunately there is no measurement. There are no announcements. In fact, people who are financially free, don’t even know that they are. Weird!
“My parents think we should buy a house, but I don’t think our finances are ready for that.” “My grandfather says that only fools invest in the stock market.”
“Uncle Steve invests a lot of his money in gold and pretty much insists that we should all be doing the same.”
“My brothers say that buying a car that’s less than five years old is a waste of money.”
Family members and loved ones can be incredibly compelling. We trust them. We love them. We value their input. Sometimes, they frustrate us with their input, but we know that it’s usually brought about by love and concern.
Here are some things that inspired and motivated me this past week. Hopefully, they will inspire and motivate you to also achieve your goals.
