We all have different ways we want to enjoy life. Some want to travel the world, some want to have a comfortable retirement and so on. I guarantee that many of the things you want to do require one thing – money. I got this neat little infographic from our friends over at Motif Investing. It’s a perfect fit for Sprout Wealth as it’s about simple ways to grow your wealth.
There are a fair number of posts on the site devoted to growing wealth – from seasonal opportunities to more niche options. What can tend to get lost in that is the basics. The basics may not be exciting or cutting edge, but they can help you ultimately to enjoy life the way you want to.
The infographic shares four simple ways to grow wealth, as they relate to investing, and those are as follows:
- Small amounts make a difference
- Start saving early
- Diversification is your friend
- Minimize investment expenses
Investing and Growing Wealth
I’m obviously a big fan of investing. Far too few do it the wise way, but when done it is one of the best ways to grow your wealth – if not the best. Unfortunately, too many complicate it and make it into something that it shouldn’t be and end up chasing gains instead of looking at investing with the long haul in mind.
That’s what I appreciate about the infographic from Motif Investing. It offers a simple and straightforward way to grow your wealth. I don’t necessarily agree with their latte factor argument as you really can’t cut your way to wealth.
However, I believe their larger point is on target as they’re talking about small amounts when it comes to investing. Too many, myself included at one point, allow the amount they’re starting with hold them back from investing. As the table under point #2 shows, starting early, even with a relatively small amount, can have a significant impact over time. Exciting, no, but definitely possible.
