Hiding in Plain Sight

49% of the millionaires in my Rich Habits Study were individuals who followed the Saver-Investor Path (4 Paths to Becoming a Self-Made Millionaire – http://richhabits.net/4-paths-becoming-self-made-millionaire/).

These Saver-Investors were ordinary people who did not have any special advantages in life:

  • They came from Poverty or the Middle-Class (Poor 41%/Middle-Class 59%)
  • They did not have high salaries.
  • They did not possess any unique set of skills.
  • They did not have any special knowledge.
  • They did not have advanced degrees or graduate from elite universities.
  • They did not inherit money from their parents, grandparents, relatives or others.
  • They did not own fancy things – their home, cars, clothes, and possessions were modest.

The reason they did not seem wealthy is because most spent 80% or less of their income and saved-invested 20% or more of that income. This forced them to live on 80% or less, and this was reflected back to the world in the form of their very ordinary lifestyle.

These individuals do not advertise their wealth. You would never know they were rich by looking at them. They are your neighbors, family, friends, colleagues at work, assistant coaches, teachers, union workers, plumbers, electricians, construction workers, Accountants, government workers, etc.

Everything about their lives screams – “I AM NOT RICH”.

Yet, they are rich. They’re rich because they followed the Guaranteed Path to Wealth – The Saver-Investor Path. A path most anyone can follow.

Becoming rich is a process. Forging smart money habits, and sticking to them during every stage of your life, is a process most anyone can follow.
