HOW TO BECOME WEALTHY IN YOUR TWENTIES AND THIRTIES
We all attain to be wealthy one day but the truth is, wealth is not magical so it doesn’t just happen. We have to work hard, be content and work smart to be able to attain this level of affluence. For most of us, it’s a far-off dream that someday, eventually, we might be able to turn ourselves into self-made millionaires. But the truth is when building wealth, the word ‘someday’ doesn’t come into it; don’t dump all your hopes and aspirations into a bin called ‘someday’. You’re never too old to start building wealth, but it is forever advisable to start when young, strong and agile.

Unfortunately, this often leads to a cycle of “Oh, I should do that next month,” month after month, until before you know it, you’re 10 years older and you’ve missed out on a decade’s worth of compounding interest. The first step is to stop procrastinating; saving and investing is scary, but the longer you wait to do it, the fewer advantages you have.
