Another Reason Why I'll Never Be Independently Wealthy


My Gen X attitude towards money and investment? Mega Millions, baby.

What? Don’t judge me! I’m a savvy business professional, and obviously it worked for this couple.


Gen X Displays Six Distinct Attitudes Toward Money

A Schwab survey found that members of Generation X generally have one of six distinct attitudes toward money and investment:

  • Paycheck to Paycheck, 25 percent
  • Spend Now, Pay Later, 17 percent
  • Confident and Risk-Tolerant, 15 percent
  • No Money, No Worries, 15 percent
  • Cautious Savers, 14 percent
  • Overwhelmed but Optimistic, 13 percent


I’m probably in the spend now & pay later category.
