"It is never too early for young people to develop financially savvy habits that can help lead them to financial independence and ultimately a secure financial future," says Bill Taylor, vice president of financial planning at Northwestern Mutual. "And what better way to start the conversation than with a clever e-card because it might as well be fun too."
Consider this: Millennials' spending power is steadily increasing into the trillions, topping their parents' generation. This financial power creates great opportunity, but it also comes with its share of challenges as well. The most educated generation in history faces a distinctively challenging job market, along with trillions in collective tuition and credit card debt.
TheMintGrad.org, a website geared toward guiding young Millennials through the challenges of financial independence, is user-friendly and interactive. The content, developed by leading financial gurus and Northwestern Mutual experts, covers a broad spectrum of career and lifestyle planning topics in addition to financial goal-setting.
"This journey toward financial independence is unique for everyone- there's no one-size-fits-all solution and the sooner you get started the better. Getting money smart now will make your long-term goals that much more attainable," Taylor added.
