Teen “Financial Forum” held at Towerpoint Wealth
Towerpoint Wealth hosted a one hour “Financial Forum” for four teenage extended family members of current TPW clients Rich and Robin Martin, “holding court” in a round-table discussion about money, wealth building, risk, spending, and financial independence. A myriad of different topics were discussed, including:
1. The distinction between “making money” and “building wealth“
2. A 10,000′ overview of what stocks and mutual funds are, as well as the importance of dividends and investment income
3. Why paying yourself first is essential; why a “pay yourself” rate of 10% is the bare minimum, and a rate of 20% is ideal
4. How to develop a solid financial foundation as a teenager heading into college, and the financial pitfalls and considerations that college students face
It was both a spirited and educational meeting in Towerpoint Wealth’s “anti-conference” room, as we sincerely enjoy spreading the “financial gospel” about these important financial issues to today’s youth, future investors, and capitalists.
