I don’t know why, but I have always had a lack mentality towards money. In reality, I have worked pretty hard to have accumulated a good amount at the age of 24.
But I still don’t feel like I have enough.
In our society today, this trap, is one that I have seen many people fall into including myself. Working more because they want more, but experiencing less of what truly matters.
It wasn’t until I made a list of what I didn’t want in life, that I came upon this realization. This sudden shift led me to change my career to financial planning and entrepreneurship.
I see a huge gap in the current state of financial planning. Having savings for retirement, getting out of debt, and having a budget is great, but it’s just step one.
What really needs to be done is we need to redefine what wealth really means. I don’t know how to solve this problem yet, but I have an idea of the direction our generation needs to go.
