The current economic system makes it difficult for many of us to advance our financial goals. It’s true the system wasn’t made for us, but there’s no reason that we can’t use it to our advantage.
Take the stock market, for example.
Think outside the box. Opening a Roth IRA or a company-sponsored 401k is a form of investment. Many companies offer an employer match to how much a person contributes, and they are tax-free until withdrawn.
We live in a system made to be disorienting, complicated, and intimidating, especially to us. Similar conditions haven’t stopped us before, and they won’t now. Investing now can help guarantee our financial liberation from the constraints of this infested system later.
