Over 33% OF 25-34 YEAR OLDS LIVE AT HOME WITH THEIR PARENTS DUE TO LOW WAGES AND HIGH COSTS OF LIVING.
A host of 20 and 30 something’s throughout the nation want to hit the reset button on their economic state, but few possess the compass to even start the journey.
BUFFALO, NY, – July 13, 2015 – If the average person had serious car trouble and went to a generous mechanic who not only told them what was wrong with their vehicle — but even gave them: a set of instructions, a diagram, and the best tools to fix the problem, most drivers would still feel intimidated and would rather just pay for help out of fear that they may make things worse, even though everything is laid out in front of them. Well, almost everything.
For Millennials who are trying to get ahead in the marketplace, the struggle isn’t entirely due to a lack of knowledge, resources or assistance, but rather; a lack of self-esteem, confidence and competence.
Many of the parents of Millennials reaped the benefits of the industrial age and told them that by going to school and working hard, they too could land a good job and lay a solid foundation for a virtually worry free financial future. Now that we have rolled up our sleeves deeper into the information age, using that advice in large part has been like asking this generation to make the best of a poorly written script without having improvisational skills. Furthermore, if that advice was indeed the secret ingredient to financial security and lifestyle leverage, most Millennials would be in a position to receive inheritances instead of debts, as myriads of Baby Boomer’s discover that comfortably entering into retirement is becoming a dream differed.
So at this stage in the game, it is of utmost importance that Millennials develop an empowering philosophy for operating in the marketplace and take a pragmatic approach towards financial achievement that allows them to: start where they are with what they have. Their energy has to be centered around working harder on themselves than they have ever worked on their jobs. As a bright and talented ensemble trying to find solid ground in the marketplace, they must get out of their comfort zone of waiting on guarantees and be more assertive in creating opportunities.
