Economic has no recovered yet, but you have already passed the graduate. The jobs supply is very low. Everyone struggles to find the right jobs. Some graduate dare to apply a job that pay little money. They do not care whether the salary low as long they can work
Those five worst mistakes are:
Some teenage do not think about the future because the father can cover the spending. They do not want to try making money because their mother can give money any time.
Some others do no invest at stock or mutual fund because the investment has risk. They prefer sacking money at bank account or certified deposit. The return of free risk asset is often lower than inflation rate.
When they graduate, they just have some money. The saving does not increase while other spending increase so much. They must ask parent money.
Either rich teenage or poor teenage needs budget because it helps them manage money. Rich man can save more money, but poor teen can decrease the spending. Either rich or poor should be able to save. The rich man allegedly not to spend the entire money they have. They can save or invest the money. They may spend money for leisure, but they should allocate ten percent for saving.
By budgeting, you can also decrease the spending. Delete the useless spending such as leisure, cinema, eating out and else. You can also spend less like food, cloth, or others. There are so many alternatives to buy cheap things.
Have a loan of things that lose value
Some people borrow money for anything. They do not realize that the things lose value as the time goes by. A car, for example, decreases in value from year to year. We buy the car at $ 50,000, but we will not be able to sell the car at the same price next year. Those things others that lose value are: furniture, appliance the gadgets. Do not forget that you must also pay the interest that grows twice.
I borrow money when I feel I cannot find the money. I will not borrow money for leisure things or lose value things. I also doubt borrow money even for things that increase value such as education, house, and business. When we build a business, we side with lose risk. On the other hand, we still pay the principal debt with interest. Unless you sure the business can make money, you are better not to borrow money.
Not building saving
A new graduate should save when they study at the college or university. They can use piggy bank or cash bank to save the coin. Insert the coin when you get the changes from bookstore, grocery, restaurant, and others.
You can use the saving when you graduate. You need some money for searching jobs. At least, you should send the mail to the company. Sometimes you need to travel to other country where the company calls you to an interview.
Of course, when you graduate you still need food. Perhaps you have not got the job yet and you need money for eating or clothing.
Ignore windfall profit
I got abundant money when I studied at the university. I just spend the money for food and book. Every time I asked my father for money and he send the money soon. I never though it was the windfall profit. I wonder I could use my father’s money to build a business or investing. I may get money from the business now. I do not have to find jobs that waste my time and my money. Of course, I will not come back again to the past. You should not do like me. Use your windfall profit to reach your dream.

Last article, I write about opening a business without quit a job. One of the alternatives the business is writing. You do not have to quit jobs when you decide to write. You just need to set one or two hours for writing. You can make hundred or thousand dollars.
First you need to build a blog or you can write for some website. Unfortunately, most paid article website has been closed because they cannot generate money from the adsense. You can tray to build a blog.
Most the amateur writer cannot sell the book for the first time unless they are a talented writer. The publisher do not want to print the book because it is very expensive. The risk that book not sold out is so high. As a businessman, he will avoid the risk.
I prefer to write at blog to make money. Today, I have not get money yet but someday the people will know me and they want to print my blog. I also put adsense in my blog too. Once people click the as, I will receive some penny. The blog has not so much visitors. I dream the blog will generate thousand visitors a day. I also put the pay[al widget so the visitors can donate to my blog.
It is not difficult to write 300 word article, I juts need 10-20 minutes for that. I usually do before teaching. I am not bothered doing the article and it is very easy.
I also have tried to write for newspaper and I got $50. Unfortunately,
