1. Taxes : Fica, Federal taxes, State taxes and potentially Capital gains | Reduce by making less taxable income ( how I’ve made made a little over 20k but haven’t been taxed yet )
– Now this is a big deal because it means when you get your first paycheck or if you’ve been paid and haven’t said anything ( but secretly think your being robbed )

State Taxes:
– The highest state right now is California as high as 13.3% but usually it wont be higher than 10% and a great way to avoid these taxes is to go to a state that doesn’t charge state income tax ( like Texas, Florida and Nevada/las Vegas)

Federal Taxes:
– These can range from 0% technically all the way to 37% being the highest
– Most people pay 22-24% honestly and its not like you get tax that percentage on the entire amount ( but the extra money gets taxed at that amount)

Bonus: Capital Gains, long term and short term

2. Debt
– You borrow money to buy something ( which is cool )
– But for this service you have to pay more than you borrow ( which sucks )
– And the rate they charge you is apr, which is the interest

Truth and My advice:
– Practice delayed gratification ( meaning buy what you can and need now and save for what you want in the future )

3. Investing and Retirement Options
– Now usually everyone wants to start here at investing but I don’t recommend it

What I do and What I Recommend : ( books for stock pickers)
– I invest into my retirement accounts roth 401k and roth ira, and my taxable accounts ( the difference is that those retirement account usually have some tax benefit as an incentive to help us invest and save for the future )

20= 4.7M

4. Student Loan Debt | Master, Bachedlors and Grad School
– The best thing to do if you don’t have these is avoid them
– But if you already have student loan debt them its going to be hard work but its not impossible to pay them off

Here are the Basics:
– Private student loans are usually more expensive and less flexible
– Federal student loans are usually cheaper and a little more flexible with payment options as pay as you earn and so on

5. Health Insurance
– The reason insurance is so expensive is because A this is America
– And because b most people want a health insurance plan that cover everything those they pay very high premiums ( but if you don’t get sick that often then it sucks )
This is Called a HDHP and you combine it with an Investment Account ( HSA) – $3600 max

Health care:

6. Saving Money
– This is the most simple one ( I strongly think you should never save money ) – it’s a waste of money
– You should only save for upcoming expenses in the future, emergency fund and sinking fun but that’s it

7. Home Buying : 33% Rule and 15 year mortgage
