If you open a Roth IRA at the age of 16 and contribute $53.00 per month until age 60 you'll have over $1,000,000.00. Anyone working can find $50.00 / month to invest. And this is a conservative number at 10% interest. At 12% (which could be more likely than 10%) and you'd only need to save $23/month.

Most people that make less than median income believe the only way they can become a millionaire is to win the lottery. I think one of the best things society can do for people is education.

We should have so many more millionaires than we do have. And I would imagine most people on this site have a much better than average income. It's so easy to become a millionaire, assuming you start when time is on your side.

I'm grateful to have an interest that pays well and even though I didn't start at age 16 I'll still be fine. But I am making sure my kids understand the benefits of compounding over time.

I hope all of you take advantage of the fact that you likely earn better than average incomes and prepare for your future.
