Fortunately there’s actually a simple way to accomplish those things if you’re willing to learn how to put your money to work for you.

It’s called compound interest, and it can help you exponentially grow your wealth.

The power of compound interest is so compelling, that it’s been often called the “eighth wonder of the world”.

Simply put, it’s interest on interest.

Compound interest is a fundamental component of wealth creation and by understanding just this one principle, you can make a significant difference to your financial independence.  


Compound interest means that you receive interest, not only on your initial investment, but also on the prior interest added to your investment.

How much interest compounds depends on three variables:

1. Interest Rate: The rate earned from savings or an investment

2. Time: The length of time money is left to compound

3. Taxes: The timing of taxation can make a big difference
