Abstract: As students plot their initial career choice from college, it would be wise to pause and discuss what are their true long term goals. Ultimately, we do not live to work, rather work to live the lifestyle we are dreaming about. In this session, we will examine the previous generation, the Baby Boomers, and use them as a case study to reveal what the future might look like. From there, we will outline a process and a path, so today’s students can arrive at financial independence over time. We will present a six-point plan to best position them for a strong financial future, and ultimately their freedom, with financial independence.
