Streetbeat: Financial Advice

What is the best financial advice you’ve ever received?

“My mom always says to spend my money wisely. If I earn a certain amount, just divide it equally, so I save up but also have money for the things that I need.”
-Mayleen Rivas, 18, Psychology

“Invest in yourself.”
-Nathan Missaghi, 20, Anthropology

“Start saving early, most definitely. I’ve had a job since I was 16 and my parents have always said ‘put 50 percent of your paycheck away.’”
-Haley Dowrsky, 21, Philosophy

“Don’t get a credit card, because they will screw you over. It’s good for your credit, but don’t spend your money on stuff you don’t need.”
-Cesar Cedillo, 23, Accounting
