When we think of someone that is financially successful, we often think of an individual that makes a lot of money, someone who started investing very early on or someone who hit it rich through a hot stock. The book “The Millionaire Next Door” by Thomas Stanley and William Danko (click here for more info ) proved that many millionaires were just average people that applied some common sense and discipline to their everyday life. We MsFiscallyFitters also believe that achieving financial security is not limited to women making gobs of money or for those who find some hot, but very risky investment. It’s not how early you get started in investing; but rather that you STARTED investing. It’s not an issue of how much money you make, but rather how much of the money you make do you save and invest. It’s not a matter of did you buy Facebook when it was only $20 three years ago, but more importantly are you taking the time to formulate good, long-term investment strategies.
I believe everyone understands the importance of saving for the future, but many women often tell me they don’t have any money to invest, but in the same breath they ask me to join them at the next weekend sale at Nordstrom or offer me a latte at Starbucks after work. Financial success is not hitting the “Big One”, but can be achieved by diligently applying easy money saving tricks we can learn and do every day.
