If you didn't already see my status update on Twitter, I was recently featured in an article titled "Exposing Millennial Money Myths," by Shelly C. on iThinkFinance.com.
She asked myself and other bloggers and influencers a series of questions based around the financial myths that millennials must work to expose. I wanted to share all of my answers to the myths and, of course, link back to her post.
MYTH 1: ARE MILLENNIALS NOT BUYING HOMES BECAUSE THEY WANT TO SCRIMP OFF THEIR PARENTS?
MYTH 2: MILLENNIALS ARE LAZY, TIRED, AND UNAMBITIOUS
Technology puts the answers to our questions at the tip of our fingertips, which can be good. Our access to technology has changed our behavior, of course. It has made life much easier.
Because of our technology use, we do redefine productivity. I'll give an example. I recently decided to purchase an Amazon Echo Dot and some smart plugs. I can get ready in the morning while telling Alexa to make my coffee. As soon as I'm ready, I just have to pour myself a cup and head to work. I still have to do some work by pre-loading the coffee grinds and water, but it makes my morning much faster!
MYTH 3: MILLENNIALS ARE KILLING THE ECONOMY

As you say, this is a very debated subject. In my opinion, the problem recalls on the extremes. To be wise and use technology for our benefit and to make our life easier, like your coffee in the mornings, but not to forget to do things by ourselves and enjoy "traditional" ways either.
Yes Mar, you are absolutely correct. I remember when I was in school that many of my teachers, for example, only excepted so many internet sources in my papers. There were some teachers that made us go use books. However, I don't think teachers make students do that anymore.
