> First you need to be clear with all the resources you have available now; like current consistent income.
> Then you must take a base amount (I recommend 10%) of your income and commit to putting it into a very stable growing investment market.
> When you can increase your base investment of 10% sustainably - do so.
> Also commit to putting your money through a simple management system that you use. The great books talk of this concept of portioning your money intentionally, so that it has a set use before it even arrives.
I have found the simplest way to portion your accounts, is to start this way:
1. The Receiving Account (100% deposited to be divided amongst the rest.)
2. The Tax Account
3. The Wealth Growth Account (start at 10%+)
4. The Charity Account (also recommended 10%+)
5. The General Account
6. The Operations Account
If you do not have an intentional system set up to work for you on autopilot like shown, you are sending a message to your money to not provide for you as much. Once you do start using a system like this, you will notice, more money ends up flowing. It may seem odd, try it and you'll see.
