Meaning of Struggle:
Understanding the importance of money - Most people are unable to understand its value. Often teenagers will casually spend the money given by their parents and don’t think about their future. Ramit Sethi understood the importance of money from an early age. At the age of 20, he first invested his scholarship money. He lost half of his scholarship money in the stock market but learned important lessons.
Then he decided to start to take classes and teach peers about personal finance, but he quickly felt let down. No one felt the importance in the same way he did. But he didn’t stop. He was determined to build his career in the financial field. At first, he failed to do this because of a lack of guidance. But after graduation, he got a mentor. Seth Godin guided him in the e-learning and digital marketing process. With him, Sethi started an internship and began earning good money. Sethi now owns blogs ang companies which regularly see over 250,000 views each month.
