Gen Y: Time to get a grip on your finances with Bubbles, Beer & Budgeting
Gen Y has the world at its feet – but can it afford to make the most of the opportunities thrown its way?
In the age of avocado on toast and double shot soy lattes, it’s easy to get caught up in the now and ignore tomorrow. Gen Y’s pay is eaten up by rent, Myki, Netflix, phone plan, brunches and gym – it’s swallowed up by life, leaving nothing for the future.
But we’re here to help you (or your friends and family); to break down the steps to achieving the kind of freedom we all dream of as we navigate study, travel, work, relationships and . . . well, life!
