Everyone in their 20s to 30s – the
generation that we call the millennials, are very much tired of being called
the spoilt generation. It’s as if the world around us, looks at the Millennials
as if they were from a different planet.
We’re not aliens.
In fact, studies show that our generation
is smart and conscious with spending money compared to the ones before us.
1. Open and Straightforward
The millennials are more upfront than any
other generation. They know how to talk about their finance and are quite clear
in the goals that they have set for themselves.
Interestingly, this straight talk attitude
is not found only in money matters, but also in their relationships. They
discuss finances with their partners and are open to supporting each other’s
They’re not embarrassed with sharing their
financial status with others, whether it’s student loan debt, credit scores or
Young adults are skeptical of most
institutions and the traditionally slow way of doing things.
For example, they don’t like banks – most
of the millennials are comfortable and safe with using online banking
facilities. With the piles of innovation coming up, the millennials are certain
about making their existences in the future comfortable.
With Paypal, Paytm, etc, they are finding
easier and more creative ways to manage their money.
3. Happiness Oriented
Long-gone are the days when the ideal
lifestyle was to have a steady nine to five job. The millennials are more
happiness oriented. They want to follow their passion, and are perhaps the
first generation that has been true to its heart.
Millennials are driven by a desire for
meaningful experiences rather than just plain, blatant materialistic goals.
