It’s terrifying to think about the future especially if you are not yet financially stable at the age of 30. I know this is pressuring a lot of you. Your 20s and 30s are very crucial periods. These are the times when you need to start hustling more for financial stability. However, there are still people out there who don’t believe that it’s needed. Some stick to the idea that there is a timeline for each one of us. Yes, this is true. But would you rather wait for your timelines when you can start your financial empire now? The real question here is are you secure in the future?

Think about your future right now. Do you think your effort can sustain your needs when you grow old? Do you think your savings are enough to fund you for a lifetime? Investments can act as retirement funds. If you will start at your 20s and eventually stop working at your 60s, imagine the years you will put into your retirement plans. 40 years of investing is a long time already and you could be one of the millionaire retirees if you do this. You can save your future by investing today and withdrawing the funds later when you decide to leave your job or your business.
This is contrary to what I am saying about not using your emergency funds as an investment. Of course, you still need to set aside the emergency funds that you can withdraw anytime. But for the purpose of saving your financial future, you can also use your investment as funds for an emergency when it’s time to withdraw them. The good thing about investments is that you can be as flexible as you want. At the end of this, you still get to choose where to use the money you saved and invested for years.
The flexibility of investments gives you a lot of benefits. As a matter of fact, you can use the cash you invested for years in order to build your own business in the future. Save as much as you can and invest it while you are still young and fruitful. After 10 years or so, use the funds you accumulated to build your own enterprise. This doesn’t mean that you have to stop investing. You can still continue to buy different portfolios in the market. The point here is that investing can help you save as much money as you can as long as you are working.
