How have you been investing your money lately?

With so many options at your disposal, finding out what’s best for you and your family can feel like quite the challenge.

This young man, however, seems to have one of his future financial goals pretty figured out.

"I want to get money when I'm 40." 

OK, that’s pretty late for most people to start earning. How much do you think you'll want to make?

$118? Hmmm. Not quite what I had in mind. Unless you plan to invest it?

Go on. I’m listening...

WHOA! There're some irregularities in the pricing there, but do you know what you could do with a billion and a hundred bathtubs?!


My goodness. What does one even begin to do with so many bubbles?

Awww. An endless supply of bubbles and the first thing he wants to do is share it with his future niece. You're pretty amazing, young sir.

Yes, you are.

Obviously, this young man’s plan — while funny — is a bit outside the realm of possibility. But if you read between the lines, there’s a takeaway in what he's saying that actually makes a lot of sense.

All of us have varying degrees of financial success, but one thing remains true across the board — what matters most are the people you share it with. They're the ones who truly make us happy. And by investing with them in mind, you’re setting yourself up for a fruitful future filled with priceless returns.

After all, what good are hundreds of bubbles if you can’t share them with the people you love?

Oh, to be loved with this much enthusiasm! The sheer adoration on his face. What a lucky little sister.

2. Teens raise thousands for their senior trip, then donate it to their community instead.

When it came time for Islesboro Central School's Class of 2021 to pick the destination for their senior class trip, the students began eyeing a trip to Greece or maybe even South Korea. But in the end, they decided to donate $5,000 they'd raised for the trip to help out their community members struggling in the wake of the pandemic instead.
