It seems people love to jump on millennials and how bad they are with their finances.
Today I want to talk to someone who is bucking the trend. Grant is the creator of Millennial Money. When he was out of college he only had a couple bucks in his bank account. He decided to do something about it, (including reading 300 personal finance books).
We’ll get into more of the details in the interview, but started saving at least 25% of what he made, started a business, and he invested. His efforts paid off and he became financial independent at the age of 30.
In this interview he shares three money mistakes he and other millennials make and offer some tips on how turn things around.
I hope you enjoy!
