Millennials and Our YOLO Financial Mindset

Jason Vitug You Only Live Once

YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once,” and a few years ago it was uttered feverishly by millennials as a lifestyle choice and to explain our irrational belief that there isn’t a tomorrow.

As the years go by, there is one thing I’ve learned and that tomorrow is as real as today. The choices we make today create the life we live tomorrow. YOLO as a mindset is great when its applied to the understanding that today is the best day to start saving, start learning about money and start building the actual YOLO life.

If we only live once, why not make sure the decisions we make support a healthy and financially stress free lifestyle?

My Book Was Reviewed By The New York Times

Jason Vitug New York Times Review

When I was promoting my first road trip and reaching out to local media and journalists I was told I wasn’t an authority unless I was an author. In July of last year after completing the road trip, I told myself I would self-publish a book and it will be part of my financial education toolkit. I was going to make myself an authority.

I decided to make myself accountable and posted this goal of self-publishing a book on personal finance on my Facebook wall. That post led to a friend (who has been following my journey for years and loves my writing) to note that her son worked at Wiley and would make an introduction. A few weeks later, I had a book deal in my inbox from one of the top publishers in the world.

How a New Dream Became My Reality

Jason Vitug Wiley

A few years ago, when I worked for Tyco Federal Credit Union, I was approached by a small publisher who felt I had a story to share. I remember letting my executive team and Board of Directors know about the opportunity. Nothing happened with that book but it did plant the seed that would grow into a bucket list item–to be published one day.

That was back in 2011. That was the same year I was trying to figure out what the next chapter of my life would be. I enjoyed the work I was doing and loved the people I worked with and my CEO, Chris Petro was someone I respected. When I had the opportunity to continue to grow into a much larger role, I had a moment of pause. I wasn’t quite sure if that’s what I wanted to do. I did ask for more money thinking that was the answer to my dissatisfaction. I got the raise and I got a lot more.
