Increase Your Worth Overnight
Ok, you can admit it. You love money. I mean really — who doesn’t?! We all want more of it.
Today, women account for 52% of the world’s population and influence 75% of all purchases. Women worldwide represent the main source of income for 30% of homes, and 48% of female workers contribute half — or more than half — of the household income. Yet for every one female millionaire, there are four men to rain on her parade. What gives?
From childhood we are taught by fairy tales like Cinderella that men are the moneymakers and women are the booty shakers, so to speak. Through adulthood, shows like “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire” give us the idea that catching the man means catching the cash. What’s more, women are told that going shopping is the way to get over a breakup, bond with girlfriends, or simply spend a Sunday.
Good news: you don’t have to become a gold digger to strike it rich! A quarter of all millionaires are women, and you can help raise that number! Skipping those three trips to Starbucks a day, or packing a lunch instead of buying one, will save you almost $20 dollars a day; invest the $600/month you saved, tack on compounding interest, and voila — in 23 years you’ll have over a million dollars saved.
Wondering how we came to that? It’s easier than you think. Check out this handy calculator. All that saving, if invested well with a good financial planner, could add up to a lot more than you imagined it would, over time. Just imagine what you could save if you skipped those a few (admittedly, unnecessary) seasonal Montclair or Prada purchases and invested the money instead!
Here are a few easy tips that will help you gain more of what you want: Money!
