“What holds people back is more a lack of belief,” Siebold says. “It’s the fear that ‘I won’t recover. What if I start a business and I fail?’ I’ve done that, and a lot of people have done that. You start over. You find a way to make it work. One of the things I saw from wealthy people from the beginning is that they had this unwavering belief that no matter what they did or if they failed, they would find a way to recover. Most said that’s a belief they had to build in themselves. They had to tell themselves, ‘if I lose everything, I’m not going to die. I’m going to make it. I will make it all back and more.’ And that’s what they do. They’re not born with this. They talk themselves into it while the rest of us are talking ourselves out of it.”
Hmmmm… Call us cynical, but has this guy simply created a product that’s going to make him richer? And give us nothing in return…?

And we wouldn’t be the successful people we are (that’s us, as well as you) if we weren’t just a little bit curious.
You don’t need a high-paying job to become a millionaire by the time you retire (or even sooner). All you really need is a smart savings and investment strategy from the get-go, along with a willingness to adopt a lifestyle that supports that strategy. If you make savings a priority early on in your career, you’ll be well on your way to reaping what could be a significant financial reward down the line.
I’ll be more than a millionaire, I don’t doubt it at all. The hardest part is starting your way up the curve, since that’s when the snowball process of compounding takes the longest to kick off. Once you reach a critical mass, the last… say… third or fourth of the journey will be relatively easy. If you’re in the right investment allocation, the real question is how soon can you make it to $750,000 in net worth? Or how soon can you start bringing in income from a second investment property? No, friends, a million is not far off at all…

Go open a Scottrade or Fidelity account and put the money in a highly diversified stock fund like SPY or VTI. Put your 10% or 20% in every month, and don’t touch it for 25 years. That will get you pretty close to 10% returns.

“It’s easier to get rich at 50, even 60 or 70, than it is to get rich at 30,” Siebold says. “There’s no question of that in my mind. Older people have the life experience that a kid just doesn’t have. Maybe [younger people] know more about technology, but we lived longer and know the ups and downs of life. In creating a fortune or financial independence, there are going to be ups and downs. Older people have a great, great advantage to get wealthier way faster. And it’s so ripe for the taking.”

The principles that I have followed out of grad school seems to have correspond to the article. At my age as part of the mid-end of the gen X, it seems that reaching the status of millionaire doesn’t reduce the anxiety of how to provide for the family. I still worry about the same things as before, but at perhaps at a different level. I admit getting to the first million was relatively easy with luck and good planning, but I thought I would have been much better off by now. It is also very tough to maintain with a bad economy. Forget about buying the Lamborghini or the large estate, it’s time to hold what you have.

And to blog well you need to be totally transparent or it won’t work. So I started blogging about what was really happening in the credit card industry, including all the unscrupulous practices and how merchants were being taken advantage of. Then I’d put my posts on the top social sites at the time: Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon, and sometimes the posts would get to the top of these sites and my website would get so much traffic that it would crash.
Interest on debt, whether it be credit card debt, auto loans, student debt, mortgage debt or any other kind of credit, is like a hole in the bottom of your savings bucket. Each month, some of your hard-earned money drips out the bottom in the form of accrued interest.
