Financial Advice You Wish You Knew as a Teenager

Today’s episode of The Money Guy Show is inspired by a listener question.  This listener wrote in to the show and asked us what advice we wish we knew as a teenager, because she is a youth group leader working closely with young adults. And what a great question this is!

So, we’re shifting today’s episode to speak directly to our teenage listeners and parents with teenagers. Even if you aren’t in this group of listeners, there are still plenty of useful and timeless tips we share to help set you up for financial success.

In today’s show, we offer a mentor-like episode that covers important decisions and human characteristics that can lead to a financially fulfilled life.

Here’s What You’ll Find Out in this Episode:

  • What your single most valuable resource is at a young age
  • Why time is like rocket fuel to your money when you’re a teenager
  • The ways the concept of deferred gratification lends itself to long-term financial success
  • Why your grades effect your reality with money
  • How to advocate for yourself and the power of a good handshake
  • Be careful how you use your resources of time and money
  • How to differentiate yourself from your peers and what that has to do with your income potential
  • The role gratitude and graciousness plays in your life and why you should always live a thankful life
  • What the secret to success is
  • What a selfless heart can do for you
