Begin Early and Build Your Wealth

Believe me when I tell you that you are never too young to begin saving and investing smartly to build wealth. Unless you were born into money, building wealth takes time. That is why the earlier you start investing, the more financial growth you can accumulate in a short period of time. If you put aside a certain amount of dollars for investing at an early age, you will then have more time to be flexible in your investment decisions.

As an example, at age 20+, save around $14 per day and when you reach retirement age, you can easily have a million dollars. Starting when 20 and arriving at age 30+, you will have 50% more savings. See how easy it is to save and invest young?

Yes, you can save your money in a bank account, but don’t just let it lie there increasing slowly with interest. Try this financial saving tip. Put a little extra discretionary money into your savings account until you have accumulated a good amount. Then move some of that money that you have saved and invest it into CD’s, bonds, and stocks. This is called “compounding” and it helps your investments grow faster especially in venturing into bonds.

As you compound your investments, you are earning interest on interest, meaning that in time you will be earning interest on your original investment and your prior earnings. When you are in your 20s and 30s you should continue to diversify your income as a healthy fallback plan. This will help mitigate your risks by looking for new financial opportunities that will allow you to strike it big in one of your ventures.

For instance, if you are between the ages of 20 to 40, presently there are some of the best pharmaceutical stocks which are performing quite well on the domestic and foreign financial markets. Do a little research and find out what ones might be best for you.

There are popular and trusting brokerage firms that offer popular stocks as low as $10. Other venture stocks that are performing well are in the field of real estate, data security companies, robotics, or CBD products.

When you are young, you have the advantage of identifying an honest Wall Street investment company. By the time you are nearing retirement age, you are probably more proficient in the financial lingo, how they work, and are holding onto a nice portfolio. You should have an investment advisor who can help perform the right research and investment opportunities in popular domestic and foreign stocks and more.

There are also mutual fund portfolio investments that you can take place in. A mutual fund is money contributed by other investors in bonds, stocks, and securities. A mutual fund is easy to open, maintain, and reinvest in during your early years, especially from any price increases in your stock choices.

Another investment idea to venture into when you are young in age is to invest in yourself. Turn your hobby or passion into a business Why not take your business or inventive ideas and become an entrepreneur? Investing in yourself means spending more time on refining your specific skill sets and meeting other individuals who can help you achieve you meet your goals in a short timeframe.

Everyone, no matter the age, can benefit by investing in the stock market. But when you are younger, your knowledge of the market and how it works is extremely beneficial in investing in individual stocks. Naturally, during your 20s and 30s, you don’t have a lot of extra money to invest in due to financial situations like paying college loans. However, if you are working and your company has a 401(k) plan, this is a good option to contribute to, especially if your job has a matching formula.

As a young individual, like in your 20s, budget wisely. Create a budget category, like a food budget, an entertainment budget, a clothing budget, and more. With this scenario, create a savings budget fund for doing small investments that will grow exponentially.

As we have stated earlier, there is no time that is too late to invest. The only exception is that you are only trying to financially play catch-up and your wealth will be less than if you started in your 30s. However, investing in the market at an early age is far better. By the time you retire or reach your 50s and 60s, you may be sitting pretty.
