Written by: Maya Nicole Preston
Millennials are not wasting time or money! The new generation is all about expediting things as soon as possible. Rapidly moving place to place is the current lifestyle for most young adults, we live in a fast paced society that requires you to be mobile and accessible at all times. This means traditional lifestyles are becoming more outdated and obsolete, instead of making major purchases such as houses and cars the new millenniums have taken a different approach and choosing experiences over things. Instead of becoming tied down to 30 year mortgages millenniums are choosing to downsize their housing options to smaller spaces that may be easier to pay and maintain. Flexibility is an important when inquiring about residence, whether you may have a change of career, relocation, or simply desiring a new scenery.
For those who may prefer a more transportable way of living, the tiny house movement may be a great investment. A tiny house is similar to your typical home except instead of square footage the small homes are created between 100 to 400 square feet of housing. This way of life is eco-friendly, self sufficient, and most importantly cost efficient. According to article What Is The Tiny House Movement, on the The Tiny Life – “the average cost of a tiny home is much lower than that of an average house.” Once you’ve purchased your tiny home the cost of upkeep is relatively low. Depending on where you park your tiny house, you may need to pay for land rental and insurance, but in the long run, the savings on a tiny house is huge.
In addition to tiny homes becoming more economical, tiny offices is also becoming quite popular. With tiny offices you can transport your space, have a quiet working area, and not to mention you can save a ton of money by not having to pay for office space. As reported by Small Biz Daily in article Why a Flexible Office Space is the New Modern Office Trend, “adaptable office spaces are extremely cost-effective.” Instead of spending the time and money to redesign your entire office after a failed floorplan, company relocation, or growth, you just change the layout yourself. If your company relocates, take your office with you and set up an efficient floor plan and design in your new location. The 7th Magazine is currently seeking investment for a tiny-house as an office on wheels! This will become a fun & unique way of promoting the magazine & its entities around the world.
Living in a digital age gives us the luxury of not having to be physically present while working. Traditional work environments are morphing into becoming more modern, and digital. Websites such as Zoom, GoogleDocs, and Microsoft Office Suite has made working become more convenient for those who cant physically be at the work environment. While writing for The 7th Magazine I have become quite familiar with working digitally. I can create and edit my pieces, while publishing them seated in my living room. The digital age has molded millennials into the luxury of accessibility.
