In the age of juniorpreneurs, child millionaires and students who own startups, struggling to visualise your future is perfectly acceptable. Regardless of what your future plans are, money matters will always matter. Unless we raise a petition to bring back the barter system. Who’s in?
Until that happens, let’s take a step towards our successful future by becoming financially literate. Feel like you’re too young to learn finance? Financial literacy, like anything else, is not that hard to learn and remember, especially if you practice it since childhood. Don’t worry, though; learning finance now won’t make you look like the Flipkart ad kids.
But, you will definitely seem badass, when your finances are sorted at age 20 while your peers might still be looking to ‘Beg Borrow Steal’.
While your 20’s are loaded with some life-shaping questions, Mentoria can help you sort out the career part. Discover where your passion, skills and personality intersect with Mentoria’s holistic psychometric assessment test. Check out this video to explore how it works:
