There is a perception among many people that in order to become rich you need to be a stock market fundi, a brain surgeon, a CEO – or you need to win the lotto, inherit old money, own your own business, marry a wealthy person. They believe that an ordinary individual, earning an ordinary salary, does not have – nor will ever have – the capacity to become wealthy.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
And the truth is so simple it should be hammered into your head during your last year of school. Begin to invest with your first paycheck and remain consistent and steadfast with increasing contributions throughout your working life. Note the word ‘invest’ not ‘save’.
