Author Michael LeBoeuf addressed students at Arizona State University with the following words of advice. This is a guest post, passing along these fruits of judgment and experience.
Last October, a friend who teaches Management at Arizona State University invited me to be a guest speaker in his classes. Knowing that I would be speaking to several hundred students, most of who were about 20 years of age, I told him, that if it was OK, I’d like to tell them how to become financially independent by age 50. Wanting to be well-prepared, I constructed a sentence outline of my remarks. Another friend suggested that I post it online and my first thought was to post it on the Bogleheads Forum . Please feel free to share and pass it along to any young person or anyone you know.
