Global News at Noon: Money tips for Millennials

Global News at Noon: Money tips for Millennials

I was recently included in a press release with TD for a study they did about millennials and money. They found that kids like us are better off if we see a financial advisor. When they called me about the study I said I agree 100%. About 5 years ago I set out a payment plan with a financial advisor to pay back my $30K. My goal was to be debt free by the time I turned 30 and I DID IT. I blogged about it recently here.

It’s almost hard to believe this actually happened because there was a long stretch there where I wondered how I was ever gonna pay back my school and credit cards (from school). I honestly and sincerely encourage you to talk to a financial advisor because there’s nothing like having control over your debt instead of it controlling you. From millennial home buyers to millennials in the workplace, there are many stereotypes that the previous generation have on people in this age group, which isn’t always true. Although times are hard for this generation, it won’t get an better unless you decide to take charge!

Here’s me on Global news at noon today with Faisal Yousuf from TD Bank.

Millennials and money the two don’t always mix so well. The generation is often accused of mismanaging funds and wasteful spending. So we’ve brought in TD Canada’s Faisal Yousef, and blogger Casie Stewart to offer some solutions to gen y’s money woes.

Weekends Were Made for Love

Weekends Were Made for Love

Love = cottage

Had such a great time at the cottage this weekend.  Posted a few Instagrams of our fun here. Thanks to the TimeHop app I was reminded that I’ve been coming up here with Sean for two years now. I really fell in love with the ‘Cottage Sean’ back then. This weekend it was so great to go for long drives, sleeping in, take naps, lazing in the sun, and hanging out with friends together. I am SO happy summer is finally here. You’ll be seeing heaps of cottage photos for the next six months. We’re going back this weekend 🙂

<3 with love, CASIE

Sean got me this Good Kid Mad Hope hoodie from the CSAW Company for my birthday. Didn’t realize just HOW rad CSAW is. It’s also super soft and perfect for this not-yet-summer weather we’re having. You’ll see me living in this and the COTTAGE sweater (both from Community 54) right into the fall.

I’m ready for the weekend. Heading up to Muskoka later this afternoon. Can’t wait to be on the lake, and wake up in the wilderness tomorrow morning. Hoping to have a fire tonight and roast some marshmallows to kick off the summer! Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Be safe out there!
