Number two on the list is save and invest, and I believe this is the most important thing a millennial should do in their early 20’s. Ideally, investing should start at birth, it’s why I wrote Munny Journey. If that didn’t happen for you, and you’re in your early 20’s, then you should definitely take Mr. O’Shaughnessy’s advice and begin investing and saving.
As I wrote in a previous blog post, “Millennials Will be the First Work and Live Generation,” millennials have watched their great grandparents, grandparents and parents live longer. Watching people live longer has afforded them the luxury of delay. Let’s take 10 years and hangout… because we can.
In your 20’s, time is on your side. Take advantage of the power of compound interest and start saving and investing now. You won’t regret it one bit.
