  • Interesting article. In my mid-30s now, I sometimes feel I’m a bit behind on the milestones due to falling into the 20s financial traps that many others fall into. However, if it wasn’t for making mistakes with money I wouldn’t have been stimulated enough to become obsessed with personal finance. You can only start or continue from where you are. It’s easy to have regrets, but as you say things are quite different with this generation. Will it ever return to how things were like financially for our parents, or grandparents?
