Become a millionaire
Become a Millionaire

  • Start investing NOW - in a Roth IRA - Retire a Millionaire

  • You need to invest to be rich. $1 a day –you will be a Millionaire if you invest and leave it there because of compound interest.

  • For example, if a 25-year-old invested $200 a month, and earned an average 10% return on her investment, she'd have $1.3 million by the time she turned 65. If you wait until you are 30 you will not get to a million. Starting at 17 is even better.

  • The best place to start investing is in your employer's 401(k) if it offers a match on your contributions. DOUBLE YOUR MONEY

  • See A Beginning Investor's Best Friend to learn more about how to get started and for three stellar funds that will let you in for as little as $50.

Plan to live without credit cards
Plan to live without Credit Cards

  • New Law requires you to be 21 or have a co-signer who will pay your bills if you do not.

  • Paying only the minimum due will take you 30 years to pay off your debt If you never charge anything else.

  • Save now and pay with cash later. Do without some things now and be able to have almost anything you want later paid in cash !!!

Your money
CASH

  • Cash also gives you better bargaining power when making purchases like cars, appliances, TV’s etc…

  • Go prepared to bargain – know your prices

  • Understand loans before signing them.

  • Ask for a copy of the loan papers to take and read before signing … This will give you time to be sure that is what you want to do and let you get help in understanding the fine print.
