Hang out with some 20 year olds and see how little in common we have!

A 30 year gap is like hoping to jump the Grand Canyon on a skateboard!

Scimmed the article, made me think of the Surrey guys or white guys with tribal tattoos who have leased 300c or 3 series.

Yes, you can say "what do you have to show for it?" and all I could say was "experiences."

It is up to me to determine if those experiences were worth having no financial gain from the work I did at that time.
You should be saving your money and living under your means, not blowing it at every opportunity. What do you have to show for it? That you are fiscally irresponsible.

What a joke.

How is your finance situation now? Do you still blow money like that?

All the time, but I live a very fun life, I'm constantly growing. I have so much fun putting together YouTube videos on my channel "sicklovestudios." Not to mention getting my first book out, the girls I date, the artists I work with, I'm really happy and loving life. Financially I'm at a 0 net worth, but can you put a price tag on your happiness?

Exactly my point.

It's already hard enough to connect with them when you're 50+. Imagine trying to do that with your kids when you're even older than that.

I don't really worry about it. Read up on helicopter parents and many of the other modern parenting phenomenons described online. My parenting approach will simply be to identify what they're passionate about, what they're good at, and encourage both. Even if I had a daughter who was a brain dead hot blonde who wanted to strip, I would make sure she was the best at whatever she did. Or if I had a son who was huge into garbage disposal and was a brony, I would make sure he was able to start his own business and have the best Pinky Pie costume in Canada, booyah!

Fuck you guys worry about so much shit you have no control over.

Who cares if you have a million dollars in the bank when you're a old fart that can barely walk. You're must likely going to get robbed by your child/children anyways. It won't be as enjoyable than spending it in your younger years.

invest first then spend. If you have your first million, making the next 10 is really easy!!!

if you have 1 million by 30, you should be set.


Your second million should only take you a few more years or you could be just stupid spend it all and have to go back to WORK again

The first million is the hardest - Money Smarts

Here in Korea, I see a bunch of older folks and seniors that live in the subway. The reason being that they gave their kids all their hard earned money, and the kids kicked them out of the house.

Some sad shit.

I think we're all free to soar or fall hard, depending on how bad you want it.(or how little you care...)
I'd define "stuck" by that of someone lacking ambition. eg: you're 35 partying like a baller and making 30k. Then you're stuck at at that income clearly not wanting to improve your worth.

Of course everyone starts off differently and I agree that we're all free to pursue our own happiness. But financial responsibility (especially if you want a family or pursue other aspirations) is definitely important.

Being liquid is important. I'd rather have money in my shitty wallet than have an expensive wallet and use cc's.

being an older member of RS, I can respect both sides of the spending now Vs saving for the future. When I was in my 20s I use to party pretty hard (wasted allot of money drinking and going out with chicks) but never spent more than I made (living at home helps out allot on this front). Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I was a little crazier with my spending when I was in my 20s and early 30's. I would finance a cooler car (always bought 3-5 yr older cars) and live in a more pimp condo downtown.
For all you young guys up and coming, your 20s and 30s are fucking precious, enjoy them, cause it is never the same when you get married and have kids. Not saying be a $30K a year millionaire, but if you have any drive in life, if you spend, you will find a way to make more money....my 2 cents......

if i make $30k, i'll live like i make $30k, if i make a million, i'd probably live like i make a little more than $30k lol.

either way i'll still try to enjoy life, but i won't try to pretend to be something i'm not. but that's just me.
