5 Smart Money Tips for Millennials
Today on the podcast, I am talking to my friend Kali Hawlk. I became friends with Kali a few years ago through her blog Commonsense Millennial. She no longer blogs there, but blogs are her main site Kali Hawlk.com but I have to tell you that if one thing is true about Kali, she is truly a Commonsense Millennial. Kali graduated from college four years ago in a terrible job market and worked her way from a $10/per hour job to running her own business and now working for The XY Planning Network.
What Are We Drinking:
Kali – Jameson on the rocks (As I told Kali on the podcast, I am super impressed with her drinking ability and told her that she had bigger drinking balls than me. I can’t handle a grown up drink like she has, so I stuck with vodka)
Shannon – Vodka and soda
I asked Kali to share what she believes are 5 smart money tips for millennials, and I not only agree with her list, but I also think these are 5 smart money tips no matter how old you are. Here is her list:
- Prioritize your spending
- Ignore the rules of thumb for savings
- Earn more (As I mentioned in the podcast, here is the link to the Well Kept Wallet site which gives you 80 ways to make more money, so no excuses!)
- Invest wisely
- Live mindfully
