Is this the end of retirement? 😨
Until recently, many people saw saving up and retiring early as the ultimate career goal. At the end of the day, with the retirement age gradually increasing around the world, who would want to find themselves working well into old age instead of sipping piña coladas on a remote beach? 🍹
Well — the answer is no longer a loud “NOBODY!”, and that’s partly due to younger generations. Or, rather, it’s due to the realities that younger generations are faced with, as well as their attitudes towards these challenges.
With salary increases failing spectacularly to align with inflation, Gen Z is practicing soft saving, which entails saving up less than previous generations did. This practice is in line with soft living, which prioritizes growth and mental wellness over hustling. 💆
Indeed, young adults care more about pursuing their interests and having experiences over painstakingly saving up every single buck.
Putting away large sums is becoming increasingly harder for everyone, anyway, so who can blame them for wanting to live more in the present? Certainly not us.

Smart New Year’s money resolutions to make
The New Year is a time for fresh beginnings, and one resolution that’s always on the top of the list is “saving money”. 💰 But it’s often a resolution that nobody actually sticks to.
So, how can you make your Benjamins work for you this year? 🤔
The solution this year is setting SMART goals. Instead of saying “I want to save a lot of money”, set yourself an amount that’s doable. For example, start with a goal of saving $ 1k in the next 4 months.
But first things first, start by evaluating your financial situation. Track your spending and set a realistic budget for the year ahead. Once you’ve done that, you can determine how much you’re able to invest in assets or how much you have to clear your debt.
Some simple financial steps to make in the year ahead include:
✅ Opening a savings account (if you don’t already have one)
✅ Creating a budget
✅ Investing in life insurance and a private pension plan
✅ Setting up automated transfers
✅ Building an emergency fund
✅ Clearing any debt
✅ Investing in assets that will bring a return
