Monday’s Factors and Events

talk savings. You might think that in order to become a millionaire, you’ll need to part with a huge amount of money each month for your entire life. Not so. If you give yourself a long enough savings window, you can actually get away with saving a relatively small amount on a monthly basis, which won’t have such a negative impact on your lifestyle. On the other hand, if you wait too long to start saving, you’ll need to forgo a lot more cash on the regular, which means you might come to feel the pain.

Finally, let’s talk investing. When you’re young and first starting out, the best place to put your money is the stock market , because it has the potential to generate respectable returns. As you get older, you’ll want to shift more of your money into safer investments, like bonds, but no matter where you are in life, stocks should always have a place in your portfolio.
