You’ve probably heard that time is your greatest investing asset. It’s true. The more investments earn and grow on their own, the greater they become.

Investment value is also greatly impacted by the amount invested.

Education and wealth

College degrees can add significant wealth. The more education you have, the more you’ll earn and the less likely you are to be unemployed. And if you can keep debt low while getting the degree (and there are reliable ways of doing this), then it’s almost guaranteed that getting a college degree is a good deal.

Controlling expenses and wealth
Those who control their spending do much better. This doesn’t mean you have to save on EVERYTHING, just some things. Enjoy your life by spending on what you want here and there, just keep it in line so you have excess to save and invest. Even 10% will make you wealthy over time.

Credit Card's Danger

Credit card usage can lead to debt and the debt grows itself while unpaid. However, used responsibly, it's a good way to start building credit. 

Most credit cards also have other benefits, such as rewards points, cash back, or travel points. But if you're incapable of paying off the balance in full every month, then you shouldn’t have it.

IDEAS

Handling difficult situations requires taking appropriate measures. When one has issues with the money, there are only two possible scenarios: cutting back on expenses or growing your income.

  • Needs: these are those bills that you absolutely must pay and are the things necessary for survival (rent or mortgage payments, car payments, groceries, insurance, health care, minimum debt payment, and utilities).
  • Wants: these include all the things you spend money on that are not absolutely essential (dinner and movies out, vacations, electronic gadgets, etc.)
  • Savings: this includes adding money to an emergency fund in a bank savings account, making IRA contributions to a mutual fund account, and investing in the stock market.
