I’m 33. But in smart money years, I’m like maybe nine months old.
I spent A LOT of time blowing money, getting in debt and pretty much screwing the pooch when it came to saving/investing. Hindsight is 20/20, but I really wish I’d been smarter during my 20s. I’d probably at least have a house. At least, I’m now out of debt and on the path to savings.
One thing I’ve learned very quickly is that in money, like most other things, it helps to follow the advice of people who know what they’re talking about. And, thankfully, with money matters there are a lot of people out there who know what they’re talking about.
JD from Get Rich Slowly has done a nice job of collecting 20 tips from a recent CNN/Money article that illustrate this point very clearly. Listen to those that have come before. They know what they’re talking about.
