A couple things:
1. Jasmine, your makeup looks bomb!
2. Can you make "Adulting 101" a series? Like school doesn't teach us personal finance, taxes, how to apply for jobs, how to live on our own, etc. and those things are really important!

Biggest tip to everyone - ALWAYS ask if there is a student discount. So many places have them and no one even knows. Even a lot of online websites have discounts. Local food shops, movie theaters, clothing stores, ect will have student discounts that they don’t necessarily promote.

It is quite unbelievable for the fact that there are kids job you've mentioned which can really earn money.

In my home (HK), there is no such things, and we cannot work if we are under the age of 16. We will opt for part-time jobs such as working in the convenient stores, but usually most students will tend to earn money as tutors and teach primary students' homework, as academic results are emphasised by the society here.

Hey! Important advice for under age 18:
If you're parent/guardian has a credit card, they can add you as an authorized user. Then, when they pay the bill on time every month, by the time you turn 18, *boom* 800+ credit score.

I am 24 years old and these are really good tips! I feel like this is something that should be taught in schools because not everyone has responsible parents who can help them. Some of these tips I’ve had to learn on my own and others just were randomly told to me by my friends. My tip: don’t open an account with a bank. Try going to a credit union. They’re owned by its members and are not for profit. They’re to help people gain credit and manage their money and offer great free resources. I work for a credit union and they’re really 10x better thank banks.

I feel like the faster you accept responsibility is the faster you become an adult no matter what age you are. I swear I became the most happy when I became self sufficient. There’s nothing more fulfilling then listening to your self and supporting yourself. I recently just did a video on the same topic pretty sure y’all will like it. Much love ❤️

Personal Finance in 9th grade taught me to follow the 50-20-30 rule 😅 50 percent of your income goes towards things you need (bills and things like that), 20 percent goes to your savings, and 30 percent is personal

I will emphasize, that many people don't know the importance of personal finance. Having someone such as Jasmine explain this topic to so many people will create understanding and beneficial habits down in the long run! So, thank you, Jasmine, for this well explained video. 👑

Don’t feel bad about wanting to share your skill set with others! Until we fix the “broken system”, we have to learn how to swim in it!

My school actually went through the trouble of teaching us most of this information, setting aside a week during the end of the semester to teach us. Thanks for the video. It’s really helpful.

One thing I like doing for the "nice to have" section: as a collector, when I see something nice that's not necessarily in my wishlist atm (also thats not a limited edition cuz that's a whole other thing😂), I wait until the last minute before I decide on buying it. It helps me prevent impulse purchases! I have this mindset that if I do not remember the item after X time, then i really do not want it. I just wanted it in the moment thus more likely ending with an impulse purchase.

It really helps when there's like a deadline such as pre-order item. If not, can set a personal one like a week or until you get paid. In regards to limited edition items, usually they're announced or leaked in advance; can give you a lot of time to think about it or remember it by the launch date😂

literally my dad talked to me about the importance of investing and putting away x amount of income each month for retirement when i was *13*
also considering my parents made lots of money investing in stocks, theyd be very disappointed if i ever lost money from investing, and very disappointed if i ever went into credit card debt.
