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.

    check this? IE still is the market leader and a huge element of folks will leave out your wonderful writing because of this
    problem.

    1. I don’t think that I am getting a lot of spam remarks. I used to get quite a few, but I think they are giving up.

  117. Magnificent goods from you, man. I have taken note of your previous material, and you are simply too fantastic.

    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the
    near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I would definitely read “The Millionaire Next Door” by Stanley and Danko and “Rich Kids: How to Raise our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life” by Tom Corley (even if you are not raising children, or a child yourself, this gives a lot of good pointers on working on good habits to become successful in life, and therefore, successful financially). All the best!

    1. Thanks for the compliment. I am no website person. I did use WordPress myself to set up this website. Good luck to you!

  121. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Thank you! My favorite financial book is “The Millionaire Next Door.” It is worth the read. Also, “Rich Kids-How to Raise our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life” by Tom Corley–very worthwhile if you are raising kids or just want to learn more about why some people will prosperous and some never will be.

    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!

  125. I’m impressed, І have to admit. Rarely do I come aϲross a blog that’s bⲟth educational and entertaining. Without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail ᧐n the head. 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.

  126. Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, great site!

  127. 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?

    1. This is all I have posted right now to any site. I am working on a couple of books and some new articles. Stay tuned, and thank you.

  128. 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.

  129. 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.

  130. 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.

  131. 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!

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

    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!

  133. You are my aspiration, I have few blogs and infrequently run out from brand :). “Follow your inclinations with due regard to the policeman round the corner.” by W. Somerset Maugham.

  134. 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.

  135. 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.

  136. Hi, I do believe your website could be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
    in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a
    quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful blog!

    I did however expertise several technical issues using this
    website, as I experienced to reload the website a lot of times

    Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement
    in google and can damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.

    Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out for much more of your respective intriguing content.
    Make sure you update this again soon.

  138. We’re a gaggle of volunteers and starting a brand new project in our community.

    on. You have done an impressive process and our entire community will likely be grateful to you.

    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.

  141. 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!

    1. Thank you for your interest. I am a control freak and have to have total command over my own site, but I wish you the best of luck. Perhaps put up your own site, and the readers will follow. That is all I have done.

  142. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

  143. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

  154. 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.

  155. 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.

  156. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is
    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.

  157. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  162. 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.

  163. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation, but I am finding this matter
    to be really one thing that I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I’m looking ahead to your next

  167. I believe what you typed made a lot of sense.
    But, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer post
    title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid, but suppose
    you added something that makes people desire more? I mean The two great secrets you need to know to conquer your financial future – Conquer your Financial Future is a little boring.

    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.

    1. I am sorry. I will get in touch with the hosting company and see if anything can be done. Thanks for alerting us to this problem.

  168. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
