So, I listen to Cosmo Radio on Sirius XM. I know, I know—don’t judge too hard. One my morning commute, I get to hear Wake up with Taylor. It features a delightfully silly duo (Taylor and Kenny). They interview people, talk about topics from Cosmopolitan Magazine, and crack each other up; thus, they crack me up. On the commute home, I listen to Cocktails with Patrick. It’s Cosmo’s look “inside the male mind,” which, as it turn out, is also hilarious. I love these shows. I’m a little obsessed.
One the way to work this morning, Taylor and Kenny interviewed a lady who owns a financial planning website. The lady and the website aren’t entirely pertinent to the story, so I won’t fill the whole post with free advertisements.
The conversation with this woman was pretty invigorating. They discussed credit card debt, and planning for your financial future. I’m at a pretty critical point in my life (regarding financial planning… and… everything else), so this conversation really inspired me. So, during my lunch break, I broke down my financial goals and started a plan.
I feel like a lot of 20somethings disregard the importance of any sort of planning early on in their professional career. So, I put myself on my way to being debt-free, which will inevitably make life more bearable.
Next up is creating a joint financial plan for myself and my fiancé.
Growing up is fun.
