There are an estimated 83+ million Millennials/Generation Y cohorts in the U.S. We earned that designation for being the first generation to reach adulthood during the new millennium (early 2000’s). Being born in the early 80’s makes me one of the first Millennials, and once I graduated college and reached adulthood, one of the first things I did was take a serious look at my financial literacy. I have no formal financial education or certificates, but my affinity for mastering my personal finances has led me to self-educate by reading incessantly. Continuous learning and self-improvement is essential to success.
I invite you to take control of your financial future, live below your means, and ride along on the journey to becoming financially independent. With proper budgeting, aggressive debt repayment, and regular passive retirement investments, becoming wealthy and financially independent is very doable. My goal is to become a Millennial Millionaire and I hope I can inspire you to do the same.
