Giving Advice to our Younger, Dumber Selves
We were recently approached by another financial blogger to share a tweet-sized bit of a financial advice to our 23-year-old selves. Sean, Jordan, Torg, and Andrew all jumped at the opportunity to educate their dumb selves.
With tips like buy all the Amazon, just do it, and skip the brunches so you can retire early, we all had some thoughts to send back in time.
An awesome piece by Zach at Four Pillars to Freedom, you can see our advice and the thoughts of many other incredible bloggers here: 30 Financial Bloggers Share Tweet-Sized Advice They Would Give to Their 23-Year-Old Selves.
Huge thanks to Zach for including us in his project!
