A few weeks ago, I wrote about investing. Have you started investing yet? Every day that you wait means you have to save even more to achieve the same end result.
Investing is not hard. I recommend that you set up an automatic withdrawal from your checking account that happens every month. That withdrawal will be used each month to purchase shares of the mutual fund that you are investing in.
Once you have it set up, you will almost forget that you are investing that money every month. I bet you will not even miss it. The results, however, will hardly be missed. You will be using the power of disciplined saving coupled with the explosion of compound interest.
Sound like a boring post? It may be, but it is absolutely critical to ensuring that you are able to accomplish your future financial goals.
