A friend and I were having a discussion today on the topic of youth/investing/entrepreneurship and I'd be interested in your opinion as well.
Our topic was: At a young age, does it make more sense for a person to invest heavily or to not push their finances so much into investments and try to start their own business? In order to maximize one's own cash flow and funds, for possible later and more massive investments. We did not come to a clear conclusion, the result of our chatter led to the opinion to split the finances equally for these activities half and half. But if we're going to do something, let's do it properly, shall we? What do you think? Should a young person channel their focus and funds into investments, or should they do everything they can to start their own business? Thanks for your perspectives!
