Morning Habits You Need To Start If You Want To Get Rich

So maybe you’re on your way to achieving a long-term goal that you’ve had for a while – congratulations! We love celebrating your successes with you. But all too often, we look toward our goals as the only thing we should be “winning” and don’t look far enough into the future to realize that we need a few other things for success – our health, for example. Starting a morning ritual can provide a stable way to maintain consistent success and put us into the mindset that we need to accomplish what we’re looking to do. (Financially Well Off)

Are You Working At A Toxic Company? 5 Things That Can Help You Decide.

There’s that phrase that goes “people don’t leave companies, they leave people.” The difference between being at a “good” or “bad” company is often just that – the personalities of the people within it.

We’re not just talking about shelling out a ton of cash for a “nice car” here – open-minded millennials are buying vans (not to be confused with the sneaker brand, although they probably own a pair or two of those, as well) and converting them into mini-homes with some very livable amenities.

The Great Recession Split The Millennial Generation Down The Middle, Creating Two Groups With Very Different Financial Habits

Experts say that although millennials are all part of the same age demographic, their life stages within this bracket say specific things about them. “Older millennials” are classified as being over 30 years old in 2019 and are said to be having a harder time recuperating from the Great Recession as they entered the job market at a difficult time for employment. “Younger millennials” (those under 30 years old this year) have learned from their predecessors and have had a bit of an easier time dealing with the job market.
