Please...learn a lot! The only saving grace to screwing up is that someone might be wise enough to learn from my mistakes.

If I had practiced financial wisdom from age 30...those numbers would have quadrupled. Except for the credit cards.

I learned these two things: 15 years goes by in an instant.
Money invested and continually invested over that same 15 years
will grow and grow.

And oh yeah, at 45, you will still feel like 30 but you will have the financial responsibilities of your parents age with all the same concerns.

It went by way too fast.
