SUPER MOVE #1 – Cut Your Expenses By 3%

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Beware of little expense: a small leak will sink a great ship.” – Benjamin Franklin

SUPER MOVE #2 – Increase Your Income By 3%

MARINATION MOMENT – How different would the world be without Thomas Edison’s inventions?

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Work like hell. I mean you just have to put in 80 to 100 hour weeks every week. [This] improves the odds of success. If other people are putting in 40 hour work weeks and you’re putting in 100 hour work weeks, then even if you’re doing the same thing you know that you will achieve in 4 months what it takes them a year to achieve.” – Elon Musk (Musk is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; a co-founder, a Series A investor, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Inc.; co-chairman of OpenAI; founder and CEO of Neuralink.

SUPER MOVE #3 – Commit to Automatically Investing 3% of Your Gross Revenue

SUPER MOVE #4 – Compound Interest Works Harder Than You Do

AMPLE EXAMPLE – Dow Jones 1989 versus Now (insert chart)

He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.” – Albert Einstein (A German born-theoretical physicist responsible for convincing President Roosevelt that America must be the first to create an atomic weapon to defeat the Germans and the Japanese in World War II)

SUPER MOVE #5 – Use the Power of Dollar Cost Averaging

DEFINITION MAGICIAN – “Dollar-cost averaging (DCA) is an investment technique of buying a fixed dollar amount of a particular investment on a regular schedule, regardless of the share price. The investor purchases more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high. The premise is that DCA lowers the average share cost over time, increasing the opportunity to profit. The DCA technique does not guarantee that an investor won’t lose money on investments. Rather, it is meant to allow investment over time instead of investment as a lump sum.” – Investopedia

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Never depend on a single income. Make investments to create a second source.” – Warren Buffett (The founder of Berkshire Hathaway and one of the most successful investors in history)
