Investing

... is the trading of your money today for a lot more money in the future. It is a high yield over the long term.

What happens to your money

Banks don’t like to give away their money. That mindset is reflected in the interest rates of checking and savings accounts of 0,5% and 0.9% avg. annual interest respectively.

When you deposit your money in the bank, the bank turns around and invests that money at 7% a year or more. After they collect their profit, they give a tiny shaving of it to you.

Portfolio and Diversification

  • Your portfolio reflects your long-term wealth building investment strategy – not the short term. It includes everything you own. Your retirement accounts, your investment accounts, even your home are types of investments.
  • Diversification is a way to describe owning multiple types of investment assets. Diversification is smart because you both protect yourself from failure and position yourself to take advantage of multiple robust methods for building wealth.

9 Ways To Building Wealth Fast

  1. Save on vehicles. Before buying a car, investigate vehicle reliability, pricing and financing.
  2. Rent. Most rentals offer more flexibility in case you need to move. Also, not having the mortgage payment allows you to start saving earlier.
  3. Don’t be a consumerist, buy only the things you really need.
  4. Save a percentage of your income so you have more money to invest.
  5. Work hard on your current work regardless of your feelings for it. It’s easier than finding a new great opportunity and may lead you into a promotion.
  6. Educate yourself even if it doesn’t bring any immediate benefit, being educated opens new opportunities on the long run.
  7. Invest in yourself and your marketing to open up new opportunities.
  8. Being an entrepreneur is the best way to maximize your earnings, short of being an investor. Try it, even if it fails the learning from it will be invaluable in your next attempt.
  9. Real estate won’t make you rich overnight, but it’s a solid strategy to increasing your network.
