When you hear about a financial expert, how old do you think that person is? 30 years old? 40 years old? And you also believe that the person must have held a higher degree of education, right?
You can become a young financial expert in your 20s or even younger, and it is not necessary to have a bachelor's degree in finance. Sounds unbelievable! So how to become a young financial expert?
Don’t worry, it’s not difficult! You can start learning and discovering it by yourself. Here are some tips you can practice and make those a habit to teach yourself to be a young financial expert:
You can start by reading short articles related to money, savings and investment which can be found in social media, newspapers, magazines and so on. You can invest in books on finance, business strategy, successful business people OR if you want to save money you can always go to the library. Popular books for beginners on financial literacy are: The Richest Man in Babylon, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Think and Grow Rich, The Academy of Finance, The millionaire next door and so on.
If you are already a college student, you can enroll in a number of finance courses, otherwise, you can also enroll in free online courses which are about business, investment, entrepreneurship and other topics that you want to know. If you do not have time to attend those courses, you should attend the presentations or workshops where speakers will share their experience with you in just a few hours.
If you already have friends who are good at finance, you can chit-chat and keep in touch with them to find out and share financial knowledge with one another. If you do not know someone who specializes in finance, you can also find celebrities in the financial field through financial courses and workshops. Then you should communicate through their social network. For example, if you want to know more about stocks and bonds, you can attend the CSX seminar and contact the speakers directly to find out what you do not understand. Listen to the radio, TV, or PODCASTS: You can follow up financial information such as the latest economic and financial situation, financial markets situation, real estate prices, financial interviews, and other financial programs through radio, television and other mass media. This tip will keep you up to date with the latest financial news.
You should start to apply what you have read and listened in everyday life. For example, to save money, you do not have to wait until you graduate, have a good job, or have a lot of money. You should start your saving habit from a young age. And after you have a considerable amount of savings, you can try to invest in a small business project like online-selling or investing in the financial market.
