How to use the compound interest formula?
Compound interest is the formula that wealthy people use to get ahead in life financially. All the rich people know how to use the compound formula in real life to turn money into more money.
Each of us has only 24 hours a day. If we rely only on our labor to make money, there is a limit to how much we can make. However, if we utilize compound interest to grow our money, even if we don't become wealthy, we can still retire comfortably.
To take advantage of compound interest, we must learn how to invest our money. If we deposit our money in a bank's savings account, we get less than a 1% interest. The inflation rate is over 1% each year, meaning our money in the bank is losing value each year.
The same one hundred dollars that we deposited in the bank ten years ago is worth much less today because everything gets more expensive, and the purchasing power of the same amount of money is less than ten years ago.
To take advantage of the compound interest, we must invest the money in stocks, bonds, or real estate. Through investing, our money can grow 512% each year instead of losing value. Historically, in the long term, the stock market and real estate in the US always goes up.
