On May 19th, I spoke at Northwestern University. The title of my talk was “What I Wish I Knew About Personal Finance in College” (link contains slides).
This was my first talk in front of a large audience. Although I admit I was nervous, after it was over I had a great feeling hearing the positive feedback. Many students even said it was the most useful event Tau Beta Pi, the organization that held the event, has ever organized on campus!
The talk was scheduled 40 minutes with a 20 minute Q&A to follow. However, the Q&A went for an hour (many questions on establishing credit out of all things). I wasn’t able to record the entire talk but was able to get a majority.
I like to thank Gopi, a reader of Gen Y Wealth and student at Northwestern, for organizing the event. Plus, all the students for coming out. It was an amazing learning experience for me, and hopefully for them as well.
