Based on your age, you'll need to save different amounts in order to be rolling in the dough at 65.
Becoming a millionaire can seem like a pretty lofty goal — or even just a fantasy. But according to financial adviser David Bach’s 2002 book “Smart Couples Finish Rich,” all it takes is a little planning.
According to Bach, the key to getting rich is sticking to a savings and investment plan as early as you can.
Bach created a chart, which we’ve re-created using updated data from 2022 from MarketWatch, to illustrate how you can build your wealth over the years.
The key to accumulating wealth is to not just save money but to invest and let it multiply. According to the authors of “The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy,” millionaires invest 20% of their income on average (and the majority of them live well below their means).
Robert T. Kiyosaki’s advice is similar in “Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That The Poor And Middle Class Do Not!."
Earning a lot of money won’t automatically lead to wealth. It’s how much you keep and what you do with it that counts.
Whether you are just starting to save money now or want to increase your investments (to get that oh-so-essential return!), the process can be confusing and overwhelming. Don’t give up, though.
As “The Millionaire Next Door” authors William Danko and Robert Stanley advise, financial planning takes time — but it’s time very well spent.
The long and short of it: The next time you’re thinking of getting that coffee or green juice, you might want to consider setting that money aside instead. It will definitely pay off in the long run.
