Great article for today's youth

Found this online. Author does a nice job of explaining the importance of a self-directed financial education.

Pass it on.

made many, many of those mistakes, trying to rectify it with my kids.

e.g., I didn't start early - made no 401k contribution at my first job.

so I made sure to get my oldest into a Roth and match their contribution to the maximum starting while in undergrad (they have earned income of 35% of an O-1's base pay)
