For most, if not all of us early 90s babies, the training wheels are off and we are heading towards the adult world full steam ahead. Many of us are taking on new jobs, new responsibilities and adapting to life outside of our parents' basements or questionably built rental homes. If you aren’t into the real world yet you might be like me, the four-year plan turned into five, then quickly turned into the ever so prestigious “super senior and a half” plan. The inevitable is on its way and few of us understand the financial world beyond the point of depositing our minimum wage checks and swiping our debit cards for five bucks worth of dollar menu heaven.

I'll be sharing a series of blog posts in which I’ll be dumbing down the most important financial aspects you need to know as you enter your adult stage in life. If there is one thing you will find in common with all of these topics, it is the best time to start planning for the future.
