How to go from investor to millionaire.
"We tell our readers exactly what and how to save and invest, and prove why this strategy works with simple explanations and supporting documentation-- but without having to bog them down with weighty theories."
Why the Millionaire plan?
You don't need any prior knowledge about investing or money management. By following a simple formula based on the number of years to the target goal of a million dollars, you will know exactly how much money you need to save per month or per day. There's one simple set of rules of encouragement to keep you from doing the things that sabotage your goal.
Why index funds?
All you need to get started is the money you'd spend on lunch every day. You don't have to work long hours trying to keep on top of the market. You just sit back and let the economy work all 24 hours every day for you while you watch the returns compound and your money grow.
There's no need to agonize over which strategy to follow or which stocks to pick. There are no brokerage fees. And, unlike mutual funds, with index funds there's no high-priced manager using your money to try to "beat the market," and losing most of the time. Index funds beat mutual funds for 14 out of the last 20 years.
Wagner and Winnikoff show you step by step everything you'll need to know, from how to buy into an index fund in manageable bits and pieces, to what to do when it's time to start cashing in. But most importantly, Millionaire gives you the inspiration you need to get started and the motivation you need to stay the course.
