Investing doesn’t mean the fun is over

September 7, 2017 ATB Financial

How can you possibly have money to invest when you don’t even have enough to buy and do the things you want today? And why would you stop having fun while you’re young just to plan for when you’re older? Well, the problem with both of these questions isn’t the cash, it’s the mindset. It is possible to plan your ideal future by turning your dreams into goals—all while living your twenties to the fullest.

When you’re in your twenties, it can be difficult to look down the road past your thirties. I mean, you’re supposed to be having fun, right? Right. But that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning for the kind of fun you’ll want when you’re older. Save up, go on trips, have fun now, but invest a little on the side for the things you’ll want in the future too. Whether it ends up being bigger trips, a house, or anything else you can dream of, plan for the kind of life you want to continue to live.

While having fun in your twenties is essential, so is being your own best friend. Set yourself up for success financially. Even if you don’t have a plan, plan for the day you decide on one. Because when you change your mindset on setting yourself up for the future, the fun is just beginning.
