This is good advice. Especially about increasing your standard of living slowly. I am almost 30 now and I have spent the larger part of my 20’s increasing my standard of living. While it has been great it has also come with a cost. So I say to everyone, control your spending.
Hi! Gary Horton here. I’ve had a lot of adventures in my life and worn many hats. I’ve been a Green Beret, Army Ranger, intelligence officer, copywriter, and novelist. My novel, Some Glad Morning, a love story set in the Old South, is available on Amazon. I hope to have a second … Read More
Of course, my battle buddy didn’t like this idea. When I told my soon-to-be-wife about the situation, she shut me down really fast. But, there’s even more bad news. Since I had already hinted to my mother that I would do it, I had to go back and tell her I changed my mind.

You can become a millionaire by simply buying a single stock and holding onto it for 20 years if it goes up significantly just like you can buy a $500,000 home and have it double in value in 20 years, but that’s a pretty risky proposition. Take a lot of the risk out of the picture by making sure all of your eggs aren’t in the same basket and develop an investment strategy that will provide steady growth over the years..

Great article Brandon. Very inspiring! Read it twice. 🙂 Although all 3 legs of the wealth tripod are critical. I strongly believe in the first one. It also resonates with Henry Ford’s quote: Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t-you’re right”
Many business owners find that it is only through listening to customers and/or trying to offer a dozen business services or products that they finally find one that really resonates with their target market and takes off in terms of sales. Each experiment that you try will teach you something about your business and customers. Many of the largest, most successful companies have market-tested thousands of products to develop their portfolios of one- to two-dozen existing product offerings. Hard work creates luck and if you experiment long enough, you will find something that sticks.
My wife and I learned how to buy and sell used furniture when furnishing our home in Colorado. We sold on consignment, which takes time, but some used furniture stores pay cash for good tables, couches and other items. Sell a few things you really don’t need, and while you’re at it, see what your friends want to dispose of, which brings us to…

Harris, I think it depends on several factors. First, I recommend having a well established emergency fund that will be enough to cover several months living expenses. This will help you cover any unexpected expenses and avoid taking out additional debt. Next consider other short/medium term goals. For example, are you saving to buy a house, do you need to replace your car in the next two or three years, etc. Finally, consider the interest rates of your student loans and what you may be able to earn in an IRA and decide which option is best for your needs. Investing for retirement now could be a huge benefit for you and your wife when you reach retirement age, but eliminating debt increases cash flow and gives you peace of mind. Both options are solid. Best of luck.
Finally, there are some companies that will hire you to work from the comfort of your own home. If you’re interested in working for someone else, while still making your own schedule and deciding where to work from, here are a few companies that will let you do just that:
Having a savings account is one of the many ways where you can set your money up to work for you. Your initial deposit of money grows whether you make additional deposits by interest. Learn the different types of accounts, including accounts like IRAs.
I have had the opportunity to connect with several as well and it is amazing how many will freely share their knowledge for no charge. We sometimes put up the mental barrier that they don’t want to share their knowledge (especially to someone super young like me) but they are generally eager to share what they know.

“Basically, OpenTable called me and they wanted a software solution to handle storing credit cards, handing the data to restaurants, and being compliant from a regulatory standpoint. I signed a three year deal with them that allowed me to build a team of developers and we built them a solution. We now had more services to sell to customers.”

If you get a policy, most financial advisers recommend buying it in your fifties or early sixties, before you develop medical conditions that will make you ineligible for preferred health discounts. Look for a policy that covers home care, an assisted-living facility and a nursing home. For a 60-year-old couple, annual premiums for a policy with a three-year benefit period and a 90-day deductible range from $2,985 to $4,190, according to the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (see Make Long-Term-Care Coverage Affordable).
However, it is scientifically proven today that the intelligence is only one puzzle piece in the picture of success: your intelligence and hard-working ethics will earn you a promotion at work or a salary increase only when combined with your high integrity, self-esteem, self-awareness, empathy, self-regulation and great social skills, or to sum up, emotional intelligence.
