My friend, it is better to do what your heart says now than to regret later. In this post, I have shared some fundamental 7 things that you should definitely do before turning 30.

This article is particularly meaningful for people between 20 and 30. However, if you have crossed 30 years, then not to worry because it’s never late to start anything new.

Do these things before you turn 30

You can do the following thing as well because I don’t think 30 is much older age. So, let’s start with the first point.

1. Start your own business

Nowadays, starting a business is very easy because of the widespread internet. In fact, many businesses are operating online for example Amazon.

do these things before you turn 30

Before you reach the age of 30, make some effort and try to start your business. I know starting a business may be a difficult task. However, I have a solution; you should start from small and then expand it gradually.

To create a successful business you need to use trial and error methods. Where you try new things and check if it works or not.

Author Ken Colwell in his book “Starting a business Quick Start Guideconcisely presents the core fundamentals that all new businessperson and entrepreneur need to know to get started, find success, and live the life of their dream.

Owning a business is a great way to make a fortune because it gives you the power of passive income.

Author Anthony Aline in his book “Passive income:  A step by step guide.” says, “Passive income іѕ соntіnuоuѕ іnсоmе generated from оnе time асtіоn. That mеаnѕ thаt thеrе is іnсоmе wіthоut your active wоrk. Pаѕѕіvе іnсоmе іѕ a rеnt rесеіvеd on a regular basis, wіth little effort required tо mаіntаіn іt. Sometimes раѕѕіvе income is called residual іnсоmе”.

In short, passive income is the income that puts money in your pocket while you sleep. There are many benefits of owning a business. Below are some of them.

Benefits of owning a business

  1. The most important benefit is “You’ll be your own boss.” No one will give you orders to fulfill.
  2. In the business world, you’ll face many challenges that will increase your problem-solving ability, also you’ll enjoy them.
  3. You’ll be able to generate passive income.
  4. You’ll get more time to spend with friends and family.
  5. You don’t need any holiday to go on summer vacation and join parties. You’re free to do anything.

However, in order to enjoy these benefits, you’ll need to work very hard in the beginning.

2. Make regular investment

things that you should definitely do before turning 30

What poor people do? They Earn -> Spend and repeat this process. What middle class does? They Earn -> Save -> Spend. What Rich people do? They Earn -> Save -> Invest -> Spend.

Wait. What does it mean? It simply means that Rich people earn money, save it and invest their savings in stocks, mutual funds, bonds, real estate. Etc.

Therefore, you should do the same. Earn money and invest it smartly. Investment helps to grow your money. You should make an investment on a monthly basis with any amount.

I have heard many people saying, “Investment is risky work. I bear that amount of risk.” Oh, come on! Risk is involved everywhere. For instance,

  • What’s the guarantee that the ceiling fan above your head will never fall?
  • What’s the guarantee that your job will last forever?
  • What’s the guarantee that your Smartphone will not slip off your hand and would break?

Thus, the risk is everywhere. You can’t say that “I’m away from any kind risk” Investment creates another source of income for you. Moreover, you don’t need to actively work for it.

Start investment as early as possible because enjoy with your money in your 80s is worthless.

3. Invest in properties (Real estate)

things that you should definitely do before turning 30

A house is a dream that everybody saw in his or her 20s. Whether you start a business or not, whether you make an investment or not, but, do buy at least one property. Why am I saying this? It’s because the value of properties is never depreciated.

For example, the property you’ll buy for 10K would become worth 100K in 3 to 4 years.

Real estate investment is a great investment and a passive source of income. You can also rent your property to a business firm and earn through it.

The bestselling book “The book on rental property investing” Written by Brandon Turner is a  great book for both new and experienced investors of real estate. In this book, you’ll discover the following things:

• Why many real estate investors fail, and how you can ensure you don’t!

• How to achieve success without touching a toilet, paintbrush, or broom.
• Actionable ideas for financing rentals, no matter how much cash you have.
• Advice on keeping your wealth by deferring (and eliminating) taxes.
• And so much more!

Parents want their children to become successful and happy. Your parents had done everything for you, they have completed every single wish you had made every single day. They have sacrificed a lot just for you.

While reading this post, make the commitment to yourself that, “Yes, I will make my parents feel proud.”

This is a great way to show respect towards your parents. As you dream of a good wife or husband, similarly, you should dream of making your parent’s life so good that they don’t need to ask for anything from you.

6. Follow your passion

things that you should definitely do before turning 30

People over 30 regret for not following their passion when they were young. There’s a famous quote by Napoleon hill.

“The number one reason people fail in life is because they listen to friends, family and neighbours.”

Napoleon hill

 If you’re in your 20s or between 20s and 30s do start following your passion. I know your passion makes you happy, but, you fear what people will say. Oh, come one leave them behind.

They are not going to build your future nor they’re interested in giving you anything for free. It’s worthless to think about fake people. Instead, you should use that energy in taking your passion to a new level.

Life is too short for everyone, but some people enjoy every second of it to increase their time. There are many works, which everyone has to do in their lives.

However, it doesn’t mean that you ignore your loved ones and just work and work. To lead a successful and happy life you should start making changes as soon as possible.

There’s nothing like an overnight success. In fact, overnight success comes from the work you do daily. In simple words, consistency is very important. If you’re between the 20s and 30s you have a lot of time to build your future.

However, if you’re above 30, it not late either, you can start from where you are at the moment.
