With the summer approaching, lots of students are facing a new chapter in their lives that will probably involve more bills and the dreaded student loan repayments.

Being financially healthy is key to attaining a life balance.

Here are the top 10 mistakes that many young adults make, which keep them from becoming financially successful.

  1. Not setting financial goals.
  2. Staying financially illiterate.
  3. Living together with your Significant Other without discussing finances.
  4. Not negotiating for your first full-time salary.
  5. Not working on paying off your debt (student loans and credit card).
  6. Getting into debt: Not distinguishing between wants and needs.
  7. Not budgeting.
  8. Not investing.
  9. Not knowing how to do a tax return.
  10. Not taking care of your most important asset: You.

To learn about these mistakes and how to avoid them, check out the Women’s Leadership Conference this Friday (March 28) from 1 – 5pm at the Student Center. During the Conference, you can choose to attend the seminar: Women & Finance: The Top 10 Mistakes at 2pm.
