Rich vs. Wealthy: What's the Difference? - Deepstash
Characteristics Of The Wealthy
  • They live in homes just large enough for their needs and drive used cars.
  • They have affordable interests.
  • They don’t worry about having the highest credit score possible as they have enough saved to skip loans and make large purchases with cash.
  • When they get a raise, they focus on investments instead of raising their spending.

By making wealth your priority now, you could be both later. Establish a strong financial foundation that will give you financial security and peace of mind moving forward. 

Living paycheck to paycheck is a guaranteed way not to build wealth.

If you’re just starting on your personal finance journey, it might not be time for you to start acquiring these assets yet.
