September Freshman Seminar.
Gen Z is smarter with money than Millennial's. In fact, 12% are already saving for retirement and a significant 21% of this generation of people ages 14 to 21 had a savings account before the age of ten!
Generation Z is shaping up to be a true "throwback generation," already working, saving money, and determined not to end up like Millennial's. 77% of Gen Z currently earn their own spending money through freelance work, a part time job, or earned allowance. This is a powerful finding given that this is also true for about the same percentage of Millennial's surveyed, who are ten years older!
Gen Z is primed to become more influential than Millennial's, and it’s happening quickly. Their practical and fiscally conservative behavior is making them part of businesses and our economy even at their young age.

Spring ICAP: Grit and Goals
On a Google Doc write down your Grit Score and write about how you apply Grit to your life.
What is Grit?
Grit is the ability to keep working toward a goal, overcoming challenges and sticking with it even when it's hard.
A true definition of grit would say that grit is a personality trait that helps you keep working toward long-term goals despite setbacks or failures. It is similar to perseverance and it requires a growth mindset— two similar character traits that mean you are willing to keep working and improving at something despite the challenges that get in your way.
“Ever tried. Ever failed. No Matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
“The most important scientific discovery about self-control is that it can be taught.”
