Money Advice We Would Give Our Younger Selves
Oh to be young again or even just younger than you are now. Just think of all the things you would do differently. You wouldn't waste so much time dating losers, you would have taken better care of your health. So many mistakes. Youth is wasted on the young as the saying goes. But perhaps no mistakes sting quite so much as the money mistakes we made.
Maybe you got into credit card debt, bought a house you couldn't really afford or lost a bundle on a bad investment. Or perhaps worse, waited so long to invest that you're scrambling to catch up so you can have enough money to retire.
We all have the benefit of hindsight when it comes to the dumb things we did or did not do when we were younger. We can't change those mistakes but we can learn from them, correct them where we can, and not make them again.
We have made a lot of money mistakes and we'll probably make more in the future. But looking back, this is the money advice we would give ourselves.
