What advice or words of wisdom would you impart to your younger self?
Considering how I'm 20 now 😜, I'd tell myself and my peers around me to-
Get my lazy ass off my bed
Stop using social media like Instagram and Twitter so much
Learn more about investing
START INVESTING, as the long runway I have affords me the time to take risks
Start saving more and spending less
Read read read
Set goals for myself financially
Alas, it's way easier to say than to do- but I now know the importance of these things and hence have to start on them. It's all about self-discipline, the earlier you plant the seed, the earlier you can reap its rewards!! (most of the time hahah)
Health is wealth, take care of yourself now and you will thank yourself in the future
Save as much as you can
Be your own person, do not be influenced by people around you
Read up more! I've done a lot more reading in the past 1 year that would be equivalent to five years' worth of passive reading before. Wished I picked this habit much earlier but hey, better late than never right? :)
Cherish any time that you have with your family now. Once you start working, you spend most of your time at work than you do with your family. This is why working adults love our weekends hahaha.
I also wished I learned about investing earlier.

start planning for retirement
don't simply trust insurance agents
don't trust investment/trading/property/ecommerce courses salesmen
yolo. be who i want to be, not who others want me to be.
Buy bitcoin, sell it when it hits 20k.
Apart from that, get attached earlier. Love people faster.
Start comprehensive financial planning earlier to know my goals and make my money work harder for me.
I share content on estate planning and financial planning here.
