One secret most sites that don't tell you is Investment. It's very important and crucial you invest. Not only for the present even for the future. The earlier you start investing, the richer you will get in the future. If you think, it's impossible. You can easily draw up the statistics and evidence presented by the stock market.
Well, let's give a logical example of what we mean by investing. Let's say, you are a young adult with an average pay of $2000 per month. If you decide to invest $500/per month in multiple low-cost funds on the stock market. Keep doing that for another 20-30 years. You should have garnered over a million dollars in that period.
Shocking right!!!! You will be a millionaire in 20-30 years after only investing $500/month on stocks. That's roughly $6000/year on investments. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am not preaching some Hollywood themed kind of investment. I am talking about real-life investment. Things you should note when investing in the stock market. You should invest in diverse and low-cost funds over time. These are the smarter investment compared to some hot streak investment. Don't rush after the hot-streak or weird investment which might end in tears later on. Go for low-cost and less risky investment that yields over time.
What are the ways you can invest your money and are very much straightforward to perform. They include
1. 401K method - This method is simple and very easy to do. The company you invest in will pay you for every dollar you invest in them. They will match the pre-tax amount of each investment. This means, there is a high chance all the money you invest will be doubled over time.
2. The Roth IRA method: Similar to 401K, you can max it out as much as you can. Though, there are limits you can invest with time.
Before your dreams of being rich cones to fruition. You need to act and think rich. This doesn't mean you should not spend money on expensive stuff. And it also means that you should spend too much money on kinds of stuff.
What I am trying to say is, you should learn how to spend consciously. Spend with purpose and stop spending on hazardously. Avoid having disorganized finance at the end of the month.
Now the issue is, how do you go about spending with a system. We will discuss this below.
- First, you need to make your finances automated. You need total control on where your money goes and where it comes from. You need to at least flow with the expenses and revenues per month.
- Secondly, when you fully develop the system, you can now adjust it to suit the needs of your income. This system helps to learn how much you spend per month. So you don't get shocked that you spent so much in a month. On payday, when you get your check. You can easily plan on how the money will be spent that month. So you are not caught by unexpected expenses.
You can make plans for the whole month with your system. Some advice on how you can go on about it. This includes
1. You can budget 50%-55% as fixed expenditure for rent, internet, debt, tax, and utilities.
2. 10% for the investments we mentioned in step 1. Using any of the desired method, either 401K or Roth IRA.
3. 5-10% on personal savings for various expenditures. Expenditure like unexpected expenses(illness, repairs, etc), traveling, weddings, etc.
4. 20-30% should be invested in yourself. Sometimes you might want to have a good time. This life is short, all your investment might not get to you in unforeseen circumstances. Enjoy life while you can.
