The high roller:

financially stable

You love your little luxuries and your extravagances equally. You believe money is meant for spending and you thrive on spontaneity! However, it’s best to gain solid financial footing before you take the concept of #yolo too seriously.

Your focus:
Take a risk. Opt for a solid retirement fund that yields a higher interest. Separate your ‘wants’ and your ‘needs’. Your secret weapon might just be saying ‘NO’. Strategy is king. Don’t enter the battlefield unarmed. Prepare a strategy so that you have clearer idea of where you want to be financially in 10-15 years.
