In the past I have written (and begged you) to begin your savings early, because at your age the benefit of time and compounding sooooooo outweighs even the biggest salary you may earn when you have climbed the corporate ladder or developed the trendiest app! You can play "catch up" with large funds when you are older, but nothing will be sweeter than having invested little early on only to be rewarded big later on!
One aspect of my own financial education that completely transformed my perspective on the money I earn is when I read 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' and started focusing on having my hard-earned cash 'work for me rather than having myself work for money'. Whether in stock accounts or retirement accounts or in the little properties I eventually acquired--the goal was (and remains) to have money working for me, i.e. creating more cash that compounds and makes more cash.
