How "The Finance Fastline" and Leangap Can Transform Your Life

The genesis of "The Finance Fastline" was fueled by the transformative experiences within the Leangap program. Leangap emphasizes practical learning by having students brainstorm, work together as a team, and find ways to market their products, elevating entrepreneurial education to new levels. By fully committing to this program, you'll acquire invaluable skills and cultivate an entrepreneurial mentality that you can use to make you stand out in any industry!

Leangap allowed me to see things from a new angle, where building a start-up and generating revenues is way easier than I thought it was. The program has been fantastic in providing mentoring opportunities, industry experts, and an extensive peer network. It's the ideal setting for any high school student to start their entrepreneurial career, validating and actualizing their concepts. You may move beyond theory on your journey with Leangap and have a real effect!

Furthermore, my interest in finance has also been guided by my father, who shared his knowledge of finance over the years since I was in middle school. Little by little, bit by bit, he showed me how to invest, introducing each indicator and how they work, sharing his thoughts on the geopolitical context while growing up. 

As I grew up, following my passion, I later enrolled in many investment courses and programs such as Amplify Trading and InvestIN program, which helped me broaden my horizons. I also took each opportunity at school to do a project on the stock market which allowed me to explore this even further! All the things I’ve learned are the ones I want to share with all kinds of people.

How young people often face various disadvantages in financial terms

  1. Limited Financial Education: Many young people lack adequate financial education, which can result in poor money management skills, uninformed financial decisions, and difficulties in planning for their future. Without a solid understanding of concepts like budgeting, saving, investing, and debt management, they may struggle to make the right choices.
  2. Student Loans and Debt: Many young individuals pursue higher education, often resulting in student loans and debt. The burden of student loans can hinder their ability to save, invest, or achieve financial goals. High levels of debt can also contribute to financial stress and impact their long-term financial well-being.
  3. Limited Access to Credit: Young people may have limited credit histories, making it difficult for them to access credit or loans. This can affect their ability to make major purchases, such as buying a car or a home, which are important steps in building wealth over time.
  4. Low Savings and Investments: Without the knowledge or means to save and invest, young people may miss out on the benefits of compound interest and long-term wealth accumulation. Delaying investments or retirement savings can significantly impact their financial security in the future.
  5. Vulnerability to Financial Scams: Inexperience and lack of financial literacy can make young people vulnerable to financial scams and predatory lending practices. Without proper awareness, they may fall victim to fraudulent schemes that can lead to financial losses.
  6. Housing and Living Costs: Rising housing and living costs can disproportionately affect young people, making it difficult to afford housing, utilities, and other essential expenses.
  7. Lack of Access to Retirement Planning: Retirement planning may not be a priority for young people, but starting early can have a significant impact on long-term financial security. Without access to employer-sponsored retirement plans or the knowledge to invest for retirement, they may miss out on valuable opportunities.
  8. Economic Uncertainty: Economic downturns or crises can disproportionately impact young people who are just starting their careers. They may face challenges in finding stable employment and may experience setbacks in their financial goals.

By empowering young people with the knowledge and tools to make informed financial decisions, we can help mitigate some of these challenges and set ourselves on a path towards greater financial stability and success. There are hidden tools and windows of opportunity in our economic system that we can take advantage of!
