Be sure to ask yourself a few questions before investing (they will be [...]
30 Year Old Millennial, there is still time: Evaluating our mindset at a pivotal time in our lives.

We have to look back and respond to all of the goals our 18-25 year old selves thought we would have accomplished by now. We have to respond to the ticking time clock that we have created for ourselves stating what we should have done, how much we should be making and what type of material things we should have acquired by now.

As business owners and entrepreneurs we must continuously goal set. Our goals are a bit different, as our strategies will lead to success within our companies and field.
