Synopsis: Updated fortnightly on Mondays, The Business Times breaks down useful financial tips.
This week's episode looks at how to fix the top financial planning mistakes made by the sandwich generation, typically Gen X-ers and Millennials in their 30s and 40s, and who are responsible not only for bringing up their children, but also caring for ageing parents.

Step-by-step plan to fix these financial mistakes (5:55)
