Money Key

4 Money Keys I Wish I Knew at 18

Tips & Tricks By June 5, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , 3 Comments

Major key alert people! I have been reminiscing a lot about my university days and one of the areas where my mind keeps going to is money. Being a full grown “Adult” for a few years now has made me think back to some money keys I wish I knew at 18.

I grew up somewhat educated about money and the value of it (big up Mummy and Daddy Reet)! But as is often said “Experience is the best teacher” and there is no better education in personal finance than earning money for yourself and being in the driving seat fully without bank of Mom and Dad.

Here are some things I think every 18 year old should know about money.

“What on earth?” is the question I kept asking myself during my masters year. I thought I had been through the eye of the needle in terms of academic feats; having passed through a grueling 6 month foundation course in science and engineering (i.e. a-levels in 6 months) and a three year hell ride in Electronic Engineering, I thought “What could be tougher than that?”. Boy, was I in for a treat.

I studied for a masters degree after a painful 3 years of engineering and I did this for two reasons:
1. I wanted to pursue that line of work
2. I’m Nigerian, I had no choice (I joke)….but do I?

Another year is upon us and I’m so grateful we are all here in one piece. I also mourn those that did not make it into the year and I pray for eternal rest for those who passed away recently.

On a lighter note, this time of year sees many lists being made and habits being dropped or picked up. I feel like there is something about the start of the year that provides a new energy and motivation, I love it. Even though the reality is we simply went from Thursday to Friday (but let’s not talk about that), it’s all about the new!

If you’ve already set your goals and are doing well by today Jan 8th, well done. If you’ve already fallen off, get back on. And if you haven’t set any at all, get to setting!

Here’s a guide to help set yourself up for success on your 2016 goals.

Let me share with you the top 5 things nobody will tell you before moving to this great city.

1. Finding a place to live IS Rocket Science
I’m being perfectly honest. I am not a rocket scientist, which is why I believe I am accurate in saying that finding a place to live in London is probably just as hard. What are the ingredients to finding a nice home you ask? I’ll tell you;
