Being 23 and surrounded by friends who are buying their own houses and cars, getting married and even having children really does get you thinking about your own hopes and dreams. On the one hand, it makes you wonder about your own plans for the future and on the other it makes you wonder how these people have managed to get themselves on their feet so soon. It made me take a look at how I can prepare myself for my own future.
Save and save some more:
Saving can be harder than ever to save in 2018, especially with a minimum wage job, I currently have an office job and work freelance on the side which helps to supplement my income, I am guilty of spending the majority of my pay on items that aren’t always necessary which can make it harder to save anything substantial. It’s an idea to set up a direct debit that will come out from your account and go straight into savings. Recently, I’ve seen a huge range of apps pop up that would be great for being able to save, including Moneybox which is great for saving and investing.
Your home and the future:
I am currently renting a house in the town I live in with my boyfriend but the aim in the future is to purchase our own house like most people dream to be able to do. I feel like as much as renting feels like your own home, it doesn’t have the same levels of security as purchasing your home for when you get older. If you don’t have life insurance compare quotes free of charge at Reassured and protect your loved ones financial future.
Build your dream career:
Most things in life start from building a career with a career you enjoy usually comes happiness and often money, once you get these inline things to seem easier. Writing is something I’ve always wanted to do and my blog allows me to be able to do this and work towards my goals. I from a young age always thought I would be destined to be an author, but as times have changed. I want to keep growing as a blogger each and every day.
