Wouldn’t that be great to have gift cards for advice. Now wait! It is human nature to give you advice, FOR FREE!
It’s up to us how we want to use that information.
When it comes to financial advice, you best be taking it from someone who knows what they are doing and believe in that person!
People in my generation find that there are many other things to plan for including retirement and I guess death! (YIKES)
Congratulations to all my high school friends who are now retired from jobs they started at 18 or 21 years of age!
Fortunately or not, there is no way I can do this! Nor would I want to, I’m too young and what would I do!!!
My working career started with the Department of Environment. At eighteen, I knew what I wanted “to be” but didn’t know how to get there. I was immature being the youngest of the family and while my sisters were my mentors, I didn’t really have any experience outside of visits to the city. And let’s be real, the guidance councillor in high school wasn’t that tuned in! I didn’t go away to post secondary! (Maybe I’m still immature! Don’t answer that!)
I think there are always examples of university or college students that waste that first year, tuition isn’t cheap. I eventually got to broadcasting school at 24.
The joys of growing up; getting experience, talking to the experts or so they appear and hoping that they can help you along the way. This is how we advance in life. And others just wade right out there willing to make mistakes and be brave!
During this holiday season, when you have gathered with family and friends, maybe its not a bad idea to get some advice.
Whether its about dating, buying a new car, where to go for dinner or simply how to live a better life someone is always willing to help you out. Like it or not, it is up to you what to do with the information!
Maybe that Gift Card isn’t such a bad idea!
