Young adults, young professionals, and students often find it hard to manage their finances, especially when they are doing it for the first time in their lives. The choices made now can have a long-term effect on their financial fitness, which will ultimately impact other parts of their lives. Whether you love their live shows and music or not, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira - the two star attractions of the Halftime show at Superbowl 54 - have many great lessons to teach young millionaires-in-the-making on finding financial and career success.


Today, I share three financial fitness lessons I have learned from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. I share how persistence, hard work, and long-term approaches helped Shakira and JLO ride out their failures and find success. I share how you can put small steps in place to reduce your debt and start saving. I highlight the need for you to be accountable for your finances and financial management. I also share why you need to set financial goals and put a plan in place to ensure you achieve them.

“Small, steady positive actions related to savings or debt reduction ultimately lead us to financial success.” - Tracey Bissett
