The two great secrets you need to know to conquer your financial future

Success concept

There are two great secrets you need to know to conquer your financial future—time and compound interest. That’s it. No smoke, no mirrors, no magic—the easy mathematical formula for making your money grow and grow is to invest your money, earn a return on it, invest some more, and earn a return on that, year after year, decade after decade.

(Don’t miss the Articles and Additional Resources sections on the left sidebar; these might be helpful.)

This is how it works: if you save and invest $5,500 a year, earn 8% a year (long-term market averages are around 9-10%) for the next 37 years, you will reach over $1.2 million.  Leave it in, keep investing, and in three more years you will have over $1.5 million.

Here is the expanded version: if you invest $5,500 at age 23, earn 8% on your investment (which is $440), you will have $5,940 at the end of the year. Leave that invested, add another $5,500, leave all of that invested, earn 8% ($915), you will end up $12,355. Continue this “save, invest, earn” pattern and this is how you will end up with your $1.2 million after 37 years.

And fortunately, if you have nothing but time ahead of you, you have the greatest financial advantage over everybody who is older than you are—the time to put the concept of compound interest to work. No wonder Einstein called compounding “the eighth wonder of the world.”

Don’t want to do all the calculations yourself?  Check out the “I Want to Be a Millionaire” App at the App Store and Google Play.

Current government sanctioned retirement accounts such as a Roth IRA allow an investment of $5,500 a year (for younger people) to grow tax-free every year and is tax-free to withdraw after age 59 ½.

Can’t spare $5,500 to invest each year? At least start somewhere. $2,000 a year, for 37 years, at 8%, yields almost $438,000. That sure beats the average of only $20,000 that most people in America have saved for retirement.

For those who want to be overachievers, invest more, earn a higher rate of return, or invest for a longer time. Or do all three. (Be aware of tax consequences on yearly amounts invested over $5,500 or those not invested in government retirement accounts.)  The “I Want to Be a Millionaire” app is great for plugging in your ideas and getting instant answers.

The big payoff comes when you can finally harvest your gains. If you have accumulated $1 million and continue to earn 8% a year, you actually can withdraw $80,000 a year (tax-free) without disturbing your principal. It’s like having your own money tree that grows new $100 bills every year. Just go out and pick ‘em. At this point, you have actually achieved the ultimate financial success–your money goes off to work for you everyday instead of your working for your money.

Even at a more conservative (and perhaps, less risky) 5% return, you can withdraw almost $50,000 a year and enjoy every minute of it.

You don’t really want to wait to start investing because you may have a lot of catching up to do. Start at age 30, and you will have to invest more than $10,000 a year to reach the same goal. Invest at age 45, and you will have to invest at least $44,000 a year to reach the same goal. (And remember, that in most cases, only $5,500 a year is eligible for favorable “IRA retirement” treatment.) You also may not have the “long-term” advantage of a higher percentage return in the market if you wait.

For more fun with retirement calculations, the “I Want to Retire ASAP” calculator is also available at the App Store and Google Play.

    both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    1. Succeeding in the “long term” financially is not really as hard as everybody wants to make it. Entire networks are set up to talk about investing for 12 hours a day–how would they make any money if they simply stated the concept of compound interest and urged their viewers to start early and invest for the long term? The show would be over. The network would go out of business. Don’t let the needless talk and spam confuse you.

    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to get people interested.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to
    grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say. In my
    opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit
    more interesting.

    post. I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

  78. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would really like
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would value your work.

    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

  80. Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused
    .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    1. I wish yo all the luck in the world. I simply had a lot to say on the subject, so I put up my WordPress website hoping that people would benefit from it.

  81. It is truly a great and helpful piece of info.

    Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

I will make sure that I don’t overlook this website, and that I continue to visit it on an ongoing basis.

    1. I do not have any recommendations. I wrote these articles because I could not find any other resources which intelligently covered these topics. Thanks for your comment.

    1. I pretty much put all basic rules of investing in this website. For more resources, one should take a personal finance/investing class at a local community college or online. I wish you great financial prosperity.

  83. It’s as if you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this, like you
    wrote the book on it or something. I feel that you simply
    could do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house
    a little bit, however instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  84. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added

    there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    1. I am sorry! That is a bothersome problem. I am notifying my hosting service about the problem. Hopefully, we can get it resolved.

  85. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  86. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at options for another platform. I would
    be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  87. It is perfect time to make a few plans for the future, and it’s time to be
    happy. I’ve read your articles, and if I may, I would like to counsel you with a few interesting issues or
    suggestions. Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding
    this topic. I desire to learn more things approximately it!

    1. Please, please send it to as many people as you can. We are hoping to spread financial literacy throughout the planet. So many lives would be so much better if they knew about how money really works.

  88. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.

    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    1. Thanks so much for the kind comment and the encouragement. I really hope that this information can help people, so please spread the word.

  89. Simply want to say your article is as astounding. The clearness in your post is simply cool and i
    can assume you’re an expert on this subject. With your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.

  99. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate
    a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours
    and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  100. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

    1. First of all, thanks again to you and all of the others who have taken the time to give me their input.

    quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful blog!

  105. I usually do not create a bunch of remarks, but i did a few
    searching and wound up here The two great secrets you need to know to conquer your
    financial future – Conquer your Financial Future.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not
    to mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like a
    few of the remarks come across like they are written by
    brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites,
    I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    1. Thank you, I guess! I am working on two books which will come out on Kindle and that is most of the information I have to share. Long term investing guides should not include a lot of updates. Theoretically, there are a few time honored strategies (time and compound interest, and a rational mind!) which encompasses at least 90% of all investing principles. I notice that there are hundreds of extra articles and thousands of extra minutes of talking about nothing in the investment blogs and channels just to fill space and time. I think that these are superfluous and waste everybody’s time.

  106. It is appropriate time to make some plans for
    the future, and it is the time to be happy. I’ve
    read this post, and if I could, I would like to suggest some interesting ideas.
    Perhaps you can write even more articles on this subject.
    I desire to read even more things about it!

    1. Thanks for your interest! I am such a control freak that I only let me contribute! Good luck though, and the more info on this topic, the better!

  108. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular article!
    It is the little changes that will make the most significant changes.
    Thanks for sharing!

  109. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Looking
    at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept
    talking about this. I will send this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  110. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for investment information.

  111. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any other interesting article like yours. It’s worth a lot to me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet would be much more useful than ever before.

  112. Whoa! This blog is great. I like reading your articles. Keep up the great postings! You know, a lot of individuals are looking around for this info. You can aid them greatly.

  113. Are you posting at other online sites ?I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your
    shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Τhe issue iѕ ѕomething too feᴡ people are speaking intelligently about. Nоѡ I am very hapρy that I fօund this in my search for something relating to this.

  116. Appreciating the time and energy you ρut іnto your blog and the in-depth іnformation you provide. Ιt’ѕ ցood tо come across a blog every once in awhile that isn’t the ѕame olⅾ rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’vе saved youг site, and I’m adding y᧐ur RSS feeds to my Google account.

    1. Thanks! I am working on two books which should go on Kindle reasonably soon–“Get Rich or Get Poor” and “Be a Financial Winner…or Loser.” Hopefully, they will be a help!

    1. Thank you! My favorite financial book is “The Millionaire Next Door.” It is worth the read.
