NBC Marcus Lemonis & The 2017 College Graduates: Self-Made Millionaire Shares Lessons In Making The Mark After College [VIDEO]By Khaleb Skye A. Cruz, UniversityHerald Reporter
For the majority, the first few years after college could be overwhelming. During this time, a lot of people are thinking about the same thing: The next move.
Marcus Lemonis shares some tips on how to overcome these dreadful feelings. The self-made millionaire, who is also the host of "The Profit" aired on CNBC, offers "tough" advice for newly graduates. Read on to find out more.
Leave the comfort zone
Learn how to live independently. While there is no greater feeling than coming back home, avoid doing it regularly. Being "at home" for too long will eventually breed stagnation.
Fr the record, living with one's parents is the usual arrangement for those between 18 and 34 years old. The main reason is that rent prices and student debts need to be balanced. Living at home can help the young pay off debt faster or avoid high costs of living.
Lemonis does not really disagree with the benefits of living with the parents. However, becoming too dependent on them is bad. No one will learn how to do their own laundry, cook, and apply for jobs if he or she does not have the courage to venture out.
Of course, this is easier said than done. The key, per Lemonis, is time-management tricks. Being able to establish "better habits" is vital to success.
Kyle Taylor, the CEO of The Penny Hoarder, has a healthy habit of having a "date night" with his finances every Sunday. It means that he looks over his receipts and reviews whether he is saving enough or not.
Yahoo Finance also reported that Google Executive Peter Roper once said that being fearless is one way to go after the goals in life. Consider brainstorming exercises to help the mind figure out yearly objectives. Lastly, do not be afraid to reach out to the people who have been in similar situations because they are the ones who could give the most suitable pieces of advice.
