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.

The wealthy

Most rich people do not flaunt their wealth: They don't live in high-class neighborhoods or drive expensive cars. They look like you and me.

The rich have a net worth of above $1 million. Most rich people got wealthy through a simple combination of earning an income, saving for retirement, and spending wisely.
