Considering how I'm 20 now 😜, I'd tell myself and my peers around me to-

  1. Get my lazy ass off my bed

  2. Stop using social media like Instagram and Twitter so much

  3. Learn more about investing

  4. START INVESTING, as the long runway I have affords me the time to take risks

  5. Start saving more and spending less

  6. Read read read

  7. 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)​​​

  1. Health is wealth, take care of yourself now and you will thank yourself in the future

  2. Save as much as you can

  3. 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.​​​

What books would you recommend! Have read Think and Grow Rich, The Millionaire Next Door, The New Trading For a Living and next on my list will be Rich Dad Poor Dad. Wouldn't say I'm an active investor who stock pick but will check out The Intelligent Investor one day

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.
