02nupe #NeverGiveUP #JAYZ #HOV believe in you. I got my goal in mind and I'll be damned if I don't get it either! From 2010 interview with jay-z & Warren Buffett. When warren buffet was Jay-Z current age he was worth about 20 million, Hov worth 550 million. (Mind you inflation would make that worth more but that much more) #Goals the things people can do for the community years to come with compounding interest. #RiskHappy whatever that is for you! 20h

02nupe Great read via @Forbes

She is age 27 and he is 35 (8 year gap posted about that yesterday on FB)
They figured they needed about $40,000 for a one-year trip.
The final tally: 26 countries, 78 cities, one year. The final cost: $48,000, which was over their budget by $8,000.
But "between the refund from Uncle Sam and a little help from their “coming home” fund, they were able to return home with zero debt and some reserve money left over." #Passport possible #RelationshipGoals. Not what "EVERYDAY" people do. LOVE IT!! #TravelForever

02nupe #DreamBig now mind you Buffett had a little bit of a leg up (I mean what 15 yr old is worth 6k & also why you should be thinking about those AFTER YOU, a leg up can mean a lot) #WarrenBuffett Just turned 85. Majority Of his wealth as we know it came after 50 (power of compounding interest, he wasn't even a billionaire at 50). Age 21 worth 20k
Age 26 worth 140k
By age 30 worth 1 million
By age 43 worth 34 Million now 40 plus years later by 83 he took 34 Million and turned it to 58.5 BILLION. We all might not reach this level, but you mean to tell me one can't dream of having Millions and passing that on?!?! It's out here to get people!!!! (Graphic via Chart from Dividend.com & marketwatch.com) it's why I save and invest when I can! The possibilities for those after are endless, but can't be leaving them no debt and no knowledge of how to play the stock game.

02nupe great read via @CNNmoney
I'm not saying she or he gotta be rich (Not at all), but with what you do have, better have some good principles. Gotta closet full of shoes, but don't even have 5k saved.... Naw #NoRomanceWithoutFinance "Joe, who is hired straight out of college. By the time he's 25 years old, he's making $40,000 a year. He should have $4,000 socked away in his retirement fund, if he wants to retire at age 65.
Joe finds a new job and at age 35 is now making $55,000 a year. At this point he should have $82,500 saved for retirement"

02nupe #DATA huge!! #DATA can't argue the #DATA. Data shows the percentage of black students enrolled vs the percentage suspended. Much like the prison population compared to population of blacks...... Disproportionate!!!!! How to improve in our school systems. #SchoolToPrison pipeline.

02nupe Just thought I'd share this #Data from Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett company) while the first two columns highlight his performance in the market, I want you to pay attention the far left column with the year & Far Right Column which is the S&P 500 index performance by year from 1965-2014. So for example in 1965 the market grew at 10%, 1966 lost (11.7%), 1967 Grew 30.9%, 1968 at 11.0%. Fast forward to 2008 we see it lost a record (37.0%), however 2009 was grew at 26%, 2010 15.1%, fast forward to 2013 it grew 32.4 %, 2014 at 13.7% (including reinvested dividends) from 1965-2014 overall stock market grew 10% through all the ups and downs (via S&P 500 index fund). So with that said, can't get scared if you under 55 with all the ups and downs cause you gotta ride it out for the #LongTerm (kinda like YALL Claim to do for relationships lol, I see how that works out for most). #Save #Invest #LongTerm use an #IndexFund for LONG TERM investment. 1w
  •   soflasigmagal Yep, diversify and leave it alone. You cannot stay in the market, if you're going to play in it #retiredearly 1w
