10 Cash Suggestions That Modified My Life


On this video, you may be taught the ten cash suggestions that modified my life (and the way they relate to retirement planning in the present day). Study the ideas …



  1. I learned the hard way that when you invest it should be for the LONG TERM results. In September of 1977, I invested $40,000 into a mutual fund. One month later, on October 19, 1987, my $40,000 turned into $22,000 overnight. It was the largest single-day loss since 1929. I VERY foolishly pulled my money out and used it as a down payment on a house. What makes me SICK today is if I would have left that $22,000 alone and never invested another penny, it would be over $850,000 today. The secret of compound growth over time is huge. Today, with the volatility in the stock market, the absolute worst thing you could do is pull your money out. Let it ride.

  2. 1. When you buy a car, it is time to start saving for your next car.
    2. Pay cash for the car and buy a 1 to 3 year old car.
    3. Pay off the maximum payment against the principal on your mortgage every year with smaller weekly payments. Run the numbers vs a higher weekly payment . You will be amazed.
    4. Money = Freedom

  3. The best two tips I have are from a costumer at the restaurant that I was working as a cashier when I came to this country #1. To never use a credit card until I learn how it works. #2. To save 20 percent of my salary no matter how difficult is my situation. He said in 10 years you will remember me. Because of my savings I was able to go to college, got a wonderful job and I’m financially independent. After 30 years I still remember his advice. 🙏

  4. First of listening to CNBC..NOT GOOD FOR HAVING A LESS STRESSFUL & FULFILLING LIFE. FAKE NEWS. 🙂 Focus on how to LOVE God more in LIFE, that will bring you more joy & PEACE than Money ever will. 🙂

  5. Invest in dividend stocks.
    Listen to financial successful people's advice.
    Don't try and keep up with the Jones'.
    Learn to balance saving for retirement and living/enjoying every day life.

  6. Great video!! Now I have more knowledge about finance. I spent 20 years in the military and unfortunately did not save in a TSP. I am fortunate enough to be retired at age 42 with a profit from my investments and pension. I wouldn't have been able to live my current lifestyle without couple of investment. After taxes I am left with about 25,000 bucks a month, I am debt free and just now starting to invest in real estate. I don't plan on working for someone else ever again. I just live a modest life and now invest heavily in the market with the help of an IA. I do get a 2-3% raise every year for inflation and this income is for the rest of my life. I am blessed and now I live a great stress free life while investing while I am retired.

  7. Sometimes, like you said, investing something that hurts you in the short term will bring you much satisfaction / enjoyment / true happiness from outside of a purely financial impact. Due to the war in Ukraine (yes WAR, not "Special Military Operation"), I help my friends by chatting with them and purchasing food for them due to their limited means, especially since they are not working / can't find work while rockets and bombs are exploding around them. Yes, it is another financial burden for me especially with inflation but the immeasurable joy and happiness that I get for supporting someone who is impacted by forces beyond their control is well worth the dollars that I "invest" in another human being.

  8. My #1 is: Leverage puts compounding to shame. You shouldn’t depend on compounding and being able to do that “last double,” at the same time that you should be reducing risk because you’re approaching retirement. Leverage gives you gain on your investment, plus gain from the use of other people’s money on your investment.

  9. I once believed the addage: "you'll never get rich working for someone else".

    You can get rich as an employee if you spend less than you earn and invest the rest. I wish I'd learned this at a younger age, but it wasn't too late for me!

  10. My two biggest financial tips are using Quicken to track my finances (for over 15 years) and to separately track my projected annual stock dividends. The latter has been a big help in ignoring the stock market fluctuations and to focus more on increasing annual stock dividends. When the stock market declined, I kept buying to increase my projected dividends.

  11. I think this could be the best video you have done. So speaks to me. Thank you for sharing. For me, also add "There is no point having excess of money later on in life (especially if you want to travel) if you then won't have the health/drive to spend it". Made me realise I can afford to retire 2 years earlier than I had originally planned.

  12. Online calculator for the S&P 500's CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate). This is an invaluable tool, that I use almost monthly. Unfortunately, Youtube won't let me include a link to the calculator. Date ranges can be entered, back to 1871.

  13. My very favorite lesson about money came from when I was a kid. I was itching to spend my allowance on some nonsense or other, and one of my parents said "You know, if you don't spend all your money on things you don't want, the money will be there when you see something you do want." 30-odd years later, that principle is still serving me well.

  14. My life changed when I realized that making large purchases on credit rather than saving to pay cash is a fools errand. The discipline to save for that large purchase is so much more rewarding!

  15. My 10
    1. Save early and often
    2. Don't time the stock market, I use index funds
    3. Minimize taxes
    4 save as much as I can
    5. Diversify
    6. Have a plan
    7. Watch the fees I pay for my investments
    8. Live below my means
    9. keep my portfolio simple.
    10. Stay the course

  16. What changed my financial life is when I started thinking of investing for financial freedom rather than investing for retirement. Retirement seemed so far away but the idea of achieving financial freedom was very motivating to me.

  17. The biggest thing that has shaped my journey is forced scarcity. Pay your future self first and learn to live with the left overs. We are happy and have a solid plan for the future

  18. Interesting idea to apply the concept of compounding to the personal/social aspect of our lives. I’m going to borrow that!

    Number 10 is kinda tricky – true in a very narrow context. I’m thinking about several of my contemporaries who felt “wealthy” and never “worried” about money as much as I did. But it turns out that the prestige cars deprecated away a lot of money and the aspirational houses ate up more in higher expenses than they returned in price appreciation. Some of these acquaintances never “worried” about money until there was a hiccup in cash flow. In other words I worried about money during good times but not near as much as they had to worry in bad times.
    I do get what you meant by #10. I brought up this other aspect of “worry” to suggest finding another choice of words to make the point of #10 more blatantly,

  19. 1. Always let friends and family borrow money from you. They will never let you down and will always pay it back. 2. Always buy expensive things as soon as you are paid. Do not automatically invest !0-15% first. 3. Always spend more than you make so you can be broke . 4. Always borrow money to buy things that depreciate in value. 5. Always steal money from others. 6. Always get a HELOC (home equity line of credit) to jeopardize the loss of your home when you lose your job. 7. Always get a margin account from the broker when opening a stock account so that when you borrow money from the broker and the value of your stock goes down….you receive a margin call and they sell your investment at a loss. 8. Always be ignorant of the IRS laws. Hide that money, play the fool. The IRS won't know. 9. Get a gambling habit. The odds are always with you. 10. Always stay in debt. It's fun to be a debt slave. 11. Always impress people with your money. Ostentatious signs of wealth are cool. 12. Just avoid these previous 11 money lifestyles, and you will be well off financially.
