Living On Six Figures A Year | Millennial Money Marathon

  • definitely considering some investment homes. I already make 190k on my 9-5 but Because I have 4 kids, Its harder trying to save with daycare, I need something to offset the costs, as well as give us college money for them.

  • Alex Sanchez grit, work ethic and determination is immaculate. All of these millennials work is impressive. I love these success stories! Go after your dreams. Most people live pay check to pay check instead of diversifying. Diversity your income sources and invest in yourself. Although, am split on the idea of revealing incomes - some people think its a taboo topic. Similarly, you might reveal that you are earning more money than your colleagues / seniors and then the politics and back stabbing starts. Thoughts?

  • Not everyone has the advantage of the 1031 real estate exchange tax loophole you guys in the US have. This is truly THE way to become rich, nothing else compares. With that in mind, it's just stupid to not invest in real estate as a US citizen. Other countries encourage other investments (e.g., stock market through lack of capital gain tax). But as I said, it doesn't even come close to the 1031 thing

  • 100% u do not need a college degree... I’ve got one, a 4 year degree in Economics, i did it back in the mid 1990s, its was cool and all and it allowed me to get a foot into the door in my chosen career in Finance and Markets. I find a lot of millennials these days get degrees in absolutely useless topics in humanity, political science, communications and law. They have a very smug know it all attitude, they have zero skills in just picking up the phone and calling a client. The last 10 years we 100% overlook the college degree, we look for young people with the right attitude and willingness to learn and we have had pretty good luck with non college educated. We have had some very bad luck with hiring college degree holders. We are producing millions of smug snowflakes with useless degrees, god help us.

      Lee_ RayyyLee_ Rayyy17 kun oldin
    • @Lee_ Rayyy good questions... graphic design u need specific skills in software like Adobe. IMO you can learn all that yourself directly without the expensive cost of a college degree, however its takes a huge amount of discipline to do it own your own. Its a question of finding a company that are not snobs in automatically turning people away just because they lack a college degree. If u have a killer portfolio of your work, thats worth 100x time a college degree IMO. My gripe was directed at the College Degrees that teach you very few to no transferable skills like Political Science. If u want to reach out to me on gmail for more info I was a financial recruiter in Hong Kong for 15 years, prior to that i was on an institutional equity sales desk with an investment bank.

      Brendan TBrendan T17 kun oldin
    • How do you feel about graphic designers? That’s the field I’m looking into im learning at home right one building the degree while in quarantine without the degree but would you still hire someone like me if I had the degree or would rather I didn’t but I had a portfolio instead of a degree

      Lee_ RayyyLee_ Rayyy17 kun oldin

    • @Kenneth O yes I did a bootcamp. It’s normally an in-person bootcamp but they moved the course online because of the pandemic. It was very INTENSE. I don’t recommend working at all if you do one because you have to put in hours outside of class to really grasp the concepts. Also make sure your self care routine is impeccable. I didn’t have any experience whatsoever so picking up the new concepts, algorithms, etc was draining. But because I learned how to replenish myself I never gave up (did I get tired and feel unmotivated: yes. But I did quit?: no). And do your research to find a reputable program if you do a bootcamp. I was between a few bootcamps when making my decision. But then I actually found out someone in my network did the bootcamp I did and they found employment in 2 months so when I saw his work I knew I wanted to do the same bootcamp. Also I would say coding is hard and you can’t ever stop learning. I would read more about why not to go into coding to see if it’s really for you. Regardless of the route you taje to become a developer, it will be time consuming and (unless you go self taught) it’s very expensive so make sure it’s something you’ll actually like. I’ve never had a more stressful job but I enjoy what I do now so it balances out. But I know some people may not enjoy strict deadlines, heavy team work, lots and lots of reading, lots of pre planning, meetings, etc. I hope this helps!

  • I want to thank CNBC for filming to us these headings . I find it extremely helpful by seeing how people around the globe cope with the money issues and get financial literacy . I’ve been binge watching for the last week and learned so much .... I learned that there’s so many opportunities and we have to make effort instead of complaining as many do. I’m happy for immigrants in the US. The USA gives you freedom in every aspect of your life!!!! I myself 18 years and about to turn into 19 in a month. Things I’m doing so far : own online business, tracking both income and outcomes. But thing I’m struggle about is passive income and savings . Folks , I’d like to hear and get some advices . Thanks in advance. Be healthy, grateful and strong . Good luck P.s if there are somebody learning Russian , I can offer you some friendly calls as friend . I’m looking for language exchanges and friendship!
