This book is for all those millennials who are in the age group of 18 – 35, have just either begun to manage their own finances or are looking for ways in which they can set up doable financial goals, to be accomplished in their 20s and 30s.
Every generation had its own way to tackle finances as well as budget. Generation X put apart a bit of its money, to be used as an emergency fund, because they had already seen what could happen when people invested in Wall Street and it came crashing down. Generation Y invested a bit of its money in stocks, shares, debentures, and lately in the 2000s, penny shares. Generation Z, the latest generation does not want to invest money into ventures and shares and a very volatile stock market. However it wants to have full control over the money it has in hand.
So now you are going to get tips and techniques on how to achieve financial goals, and what you need to do to control your money, in your 20s as well as your 30s.
