Fact: the Millennial Generation will not be able to rely on pensions and social security in retirement. Instead, they will have to save and invest in the global stock market to meet their goals. When it comes to thinking about money, Millennials are, as a generation, different from their parents. They are skeptical of expert advice, yet more committed than baby boomers to passing wealth on to future generations. To build wealth, young people must start investing early and buck conventional market wisdom.
Millennial Money will explain the most common mistakes that hurt investors’ long-term returns and show why their investments in popular stocks or the hottest industry of the day have resulted in such underwhelming results. More importantly, the book will introduce a strategy that can help us overcome our shortcomings as investors. Armed with this strategy, Millennials can become the most successful investing generation in history.

A young Australian entrepreneur and self-made millionaire presents a counterintuitive guide to succeeding in today’s business world
To be unprofessional is not to be disrespectful. It is not to be reckless or lazy. It is not to be unpunctual, badly presented or poorly spoken.
To be unprofessional is to be real. It is to create a vision that is unborrowed from the past. It is to develop products that genuinely ‘wow’ your audience. It is to think of marketing strategies that the management consultants don’t have diagrams or buzz words for yet. It is to think original thoughts and speak of proactive ideas that haven’t yet been documented in the academic playbooks.
At just 26 years old, Jack Delosa knows more than you’d expect about business and entrepreneurship. A self-made millionaire by 24, Delosa is an award-winning entrepreneur and educator who has built several start-ups into successful thriving businesses. In UnProfessional, Delosa reflects on his business adventures and offers practical how-to advice on topics such as becoming a market leader on a shoestring budget, becoming the go-to person in your industry to win more business faster, how to manage and lead other people toward your vision and why it’s important to fail fast.
The business world has changed. What worked in the past will not work today. Offering a fresh perspective on the challenges of starting and running a successful business, UnProfessional is an ideal guide for Australia’s current crop of forward-thinking entrepreneurs of any age.
