The future is your canvas. Your path could go any number of ways. You may plan to have children right away, or travel while you are young and carefree. One thing is clear: you want a defined, predictable path in your finances.
While your expenses are light and your income is not being consumed by raising children, it is important to build your investment wealth. In terms of retirement, the time ahead of you is more powerful than any other factor. A dollar saved today could be worth $71 compared to a dollar saved tomorrow worth $12. These investments can pay handsomely, often bringing in double digit returns. A modest investment today can turn into a healthy retirement 20-30 years down the road. The key is to act today - start socking away whatever you can afford. As your family begins to grow, your expenses will rise and it generally becomes harder to find the spare funds to save.
Think about your most valuable asset. An asset is defined as something with economic value. Your most valuable economic asset is most likely you and your ability to earn an income. That potential is key to your future goals, aspirations and success. Large amounts are spent protecting our homes from fire, our cars from accidents and our businesses from liability. Commonly overlooked is our ability to earn an income - and that income is easier to protect than most people think. Protection from the financial hardships associated with disability, illness, even death can easily be planned for so that you have one less stress to worry about. Plus, this protection will not be any more affordable than it is for you today. As you age and as health issues arise in your future, your ability to become insured becomes increasingly more difficult and more expensive.
A mortgage is something that traditionally follows you throughout your life. In fact the term mortgage comes from old French Law and literally means Dead Pledge. At the time it meant the contract was dead when the financial obligation was met - but today it has begun to follow many people throughout their lives, some to their death bed.
With proper planning and strong security, it is possible to pay off your mortgage years sooner. These strategies can be combined to empower you to put your house to work, sometimes paying off your mortgage in less than half the time.
