BEGIN YOUR FINANCIAL LITERACY
As a millennial, you’re not only a member of the largest generation in the United States but a member of a generation that, if not careful, may end up in a worse financial position than their parents. Financial illiteracy, a lack of money management concepts, and no education on proper financial planning are an epidemic that threatens the future of every millennial.
Imagine for a minute, a future where you wake up feeling motivated about your career and have the sense of security that comes with a steady income and responsible spending habits. Imagine the calm you’d carry understanding that you’re following a plan designed to create your future wealth. In this book I will help you to define your vision of wealth and how you can attain it. I will lay out the building blocks as to how you can create a solid financial plan that will allow you to live the life that you desire, in a realistic period of time.
I wrote this book because I want to help all millennials understand the scale of our problems and that once we accept them, we can establish the necessary building blocks to change our future for the better. In this book, I’ll give you jaw-dropping statistics, a few simple exercises to complete, and the knowledge and ability to understand the basic concepts of financial planning as well as the tools to build yourself a wealthier future. I wrote this book to serve as a conversation on building wealth and taking control of your finances and the advice I give you, can be used for the rest of your life.
Trust me, your future self will thank you!

Wow what a informative book I definitely learned I need to start my financial planning sooner rather than wait. It doesn’t matter what position I am in I need to get into a better position with a game plan and assistance with a financial advisor or financial fitness coach. I loved how the author was very knowledgeable on millennials whether they had a job with benefits such as 401k to employees where their employer doesn’t offer 401k so there is alternative for non 401k parties as well as entrepreneurs like myself. Definitely read this book if you want to build your financial freedom future.
