Don’t miss John’s fundamentals of savings:
- Think of yourself as a business—savings is a way to invest in yourself.
- You can save money and still grow your wealth over time.
- If you’re not putting away a certain amount of money every single year as a percentage of your salary, there are multiple pressures that will quickly erode whatever you’ve accumulated.
- The first step is to be truthful about where all of your money is going. Even if you currently have a negative savings rate, you can still reach the goal of establishing a positive savings rate and growing your wealth.
- There are tried and true formulas to help you establish a healthy savings rate, and they can be tailored to your family’s needs.
- Part of your long-term goal should be to have about 50% of your annual expenses in short-term savings to preserve liquidity.
- One way to save is to check your financial plan for “leaks”—places where your money is being petered away due to poor structure.
