Myth I The finances are left to my parents, why should I bother ? What if the unforeseen happens and you are left all alone. Be prepared for the worst even if you don’t want to take complete charge of finances, try and understand where the money is coming from and where it is going.
Myth II Managing my finances is too complex. That’s a cop out. Financial planning and management is a learning process. You really need to understand your requirements and identify your goals. You can even take help of a financial consultant friend to manage your finances.
Myth III My father earns and saves for the family. Why should I ? Because statistically speaking, you are likely to outlive your father . Having your own savings gives you additional security. Remember to always invest and not let your savings remain in a low paying saving account or a bank locker.
