MANILA, Philippines – When you’re young and unsure how the “real world” runs, the mere idea of adulting can be daunting.
Adulting, or “to adult,” means to behave like an adult and to do the things a proper adult would do. It encompasses an entire spectrum of activities, from those as simple as learning how to do your own laundry and making home-cooked meals, or as advanced as finding job stability and making an investment.
It all sounds so terrifying on paper, but don’t worry – with practice, things would get easier as you go along and get used to it.
But the real trick to adulting right is to start taking control of your finances as early as possible and resisting the urge to splurge. Which means that while the occasional “I deserve this!” treats are okay as a reward for working hard, you have to make sure that you don’t go overboard and lose all that hard-earned cash.
Always remember to use, save, and invest your money wisely. Besides, it’s YOU who will be benefiting from all these in the long run!
These videos will teach you how you can manage your finances so that later on, you’ll be able to take on bigger responsibilities as you pursue your life goals.
