Are you Interested in Learning How to Build Wealth

Learning about building wealth has always been my interesting topic, and we feel it’s way too difficult, but trust me, it’s not that hard.

You can follow some simple fundamentals, and if you can do it, you can end up wealthy in the future.

One of the best ways to build wealth is getting your mindset around the issue going in the correct direction. 

For example, avoid any temptations to believe “get rich quick” advice that you’ll often see online.

In my opinion, it’s better to build your wealth steadily over time and adopt proven millionaire habits as you do.

While there are many things to learn as you work toward becoming wealthier, there are three basic ideas that should never steer you wrong:

  1. Focus on making more money over time
  2. Save the money you earn
  3. Invest some of that money (after basic savings are completed)

Let’s discuss these important tactics and then I’ll give you a few more tips that will help you on your quest to discover how to build wealth.

Make Money (and Increase Your Earnings Over Time)

This may sound a bit silly, but hear me out here. 

It’s easy to show you things like the power of compound interest or what type of investments you should take advantage of. 

The reality is that many people who want to become wealthy never consider whether their current income source is:

  1. Secure for the future
  2. Making them a sufficient amount that leads to wealth creation

One of the tips I’ll show you below includes reducing expenses. However, there’s only so much any of us can reduce from our monthly budgets.

The fact that inflation continues to erode earning power as goods increase in price only makes this more difficult.

At some point, you need to ask yourself how you’ll increase your income-generation options. 

I also want to suggest that you consider whether your job is safe from technology or threats like artificial intelligence. Is it possible your job might become obsolete someday?

Even if you think you’re safe in that area, do you have the capability to increase your income enough every year for the next 10, 20 or 30 years in a way that fights effectively enough against inflation and rising costs?

Although we live during a time when the future of our purchasing power is in doubt, we simultaneously live in a time when earning extra income has never been any easier than at any period throughout human history. 

Here’s a quick list of ways you might increase your income:

  • Start an online business
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Network marketing
  • Become a rideshare driver
  • Sell items on eBay
  • Dog Sitting
  • Blogging
  • Freelancing

That’s the short list! Opportunities abound (on the Internet, especially) if you’re willing to learn a few new skills and put them to work.

Keep in mind that building wealth is not an overnight process.

We’ll teach you 4 easy ways to protect your money and build wealth over the long term.

Save Your Money

Building wealth

If you’re serious about learning how to build wealth, then develop a budget and include a savings plan inside it…no matter your current income.

Going into debt is the opposite of creating wealth. The first thing I encourage you to save toward is an emergency fund so that emergencies don’t cause you to put things on credit cards. 

Make saving one month of living expenses the first goal. Then, save enough to cover your expenses for six months, and then 12 months.

If you’re not sure this is possible, read my post about how to save a home down payment and apply the ideas there toward your emergency fund goal.

Invest Your Money

Start investing money toward the future after your income and saving plans are in place. 

One of the best ways to build wealth is using compound interest. This means you’ll need to become educated about the various types of investments available, such as stock market and real estate investing.

The key to investing is getting an annual interest rate that helps your money grow at a rate that outpaces inflation.

One place you can get an investment education is through my Financial Success Blueprint.

Reduce Your Expenses

Building wealth is difficult for those who spend money on too many trinkets or items that lose value over time.

Am I going to tell you that you can’t enjoy taking your spouse out to dinner once in a while or enjoying a nice family vacation periodically?

No, but I am going to encourage you to spot financial habits and decisions that hinder your goal for accumulating lifetime wealth. 

A good way to put this is to develop the opposite mindset that many people suffer from: “We need to keep up with the Joneses”. 

That mindset causes people to spend too much on new cars that lose their value immediately or buy too many clothes, shoes, the latest big-screen TV, boats, ski jets, the latest iPhone and other such wealth-crushing items.

Instead, see what you can take away from your expenses and put that money into your savings, investing and possibly side business plans.

Again, you don’t have to live like a miser. Just don’t throw your money away on too many things. Pick them wisely and put the saved money into wealth creation activities.

Get Out Of Debt

I mentioned above that debt is the opposite of building wealth. 

If you have credit card, student loan or car loan debt, then work your tail off to pay it down as soon as possible and use an emergency fund to avoid getting back into debt.

Use the old debt payment amount to fund your savings and investments and put compound interest back into your favor. 

Quick Recap

Use these quick tips as your guide as you learn how to build wealth:

  • Stay clear from debt
  • Find ways to increase & diversify your income
  • Save your money
  • Live below your means
  • Invest your money

Following that plan is the best way to build wealth. 

It might not sound “amazing” to you, but most of the world’s millionaires used this exact strategy and thinking process to get where they are today.
