Building Wealth In Your 20s Gives You An Advantage
By starting the process of building wealth in your 20s at a young age, you have a substantial advantage over those who are building wealth who are older.
What are these advantages that set you apart from the rest of the population?
- You have more time for compound interest to grow in any investment accounts. Often investments grow faster and faster, as they age and compound interest occurs.
- You have time to make mistakes, and learn early. You are able to make mistakes early on that would cripple most people financially who are much older.
- You have the energy, fast mind, and resources to learn about building wealth fast.
- You have more time to increase your income, decrease expenses, and grow your wealth while your net worth increases.
- Decreasing your income while you are young is easier than when you’re more established and have to get rid of foundational expenses.
To summarize this together, you have time on your hands. Having time allows you advantages that experience can’t afford. Because in theory money is time.
As you are younger than the rest of the population, you have the most potential wealth to earn.
Don’t get me wrong, there are ways for you to learn how to build wealth in your 50s or older, but they are slightly different than what you’ll learn here.
Now that you understand the advantage in building wealth that you have, let’s go through why wealth building should be a priority in your life.
Why Should You Start Building Your Wealth Young?
You should start building your wealth young, because it won’t take anything away from your life.
Saving money, investing, and growing your income – can all be done without sacrificing fun, adventures, and doing the things that you love.
Often the youth is more concerned with traveling, having fun, and short term happiness – than long term goals.
Just like you, I was among the few in my generation who decided to take my financial life more seriously at a young age, and while doing so, I’ve had a more successful and happy live than anyone that I know.
Here are some of the facts of what I’ve experienced at 23 years old so far, after deciding to take building my wealth seriously when I was 18.
- I’ve gone on 11 different vacations, that I’ve paid for entirely myself. (comfortably and with plenty of money in the bank)
- By the end of next year I should have 6 figures in investments. (that build me a passive income)
- Self published 2 books
- Have a girlfriend, family, and friends – that I love dearly.
- Am in good physical shape
- Have a place of my own
- I own a business that has zero debt
Why did I go through these details of my own life?
Because you need to understand that deciding to build wealth while you’re young is a decision that will change your life for the better.
Most people view cutting costs as a bad thing. When you’re building your wealth, cutting costs is a great thing that will enable your future to have better opportunities than you can afford in the present.

How To Acquire Assets In Your 20s
Often people think that the “rich and already wealthy” are the only ones who can afford assets. However, anyone regardless of age is capable of acquiring passive income assets that grow their wealth and net worth over time.
What is an “asset”?
An asset is a large investment that grants passive income to the owner of said asset. This means that you can make a large investment or purchase on a business, or property – that can potentially pay you a passive income for decades or for life.
There are 3 main assets that you should consider investing in because of the rate of return and potential to grow in value over time.
Included, is an example of how you could use the asset to generate passive income.
Build Wealth With Real Estate – Houses, Apartments, Duplexes
A small duplex in a town with a 1,000 – 30,000 population costs between $140,000 – $300,000
The cost of developing real estate assets is much higher than other investments. The longer term ROI from them can be quite great, as well as cash flow.
However, let’s assume you plan to hold on to this duplex you purchase for 10 years. While doing so you collect $1,000 in monthly rent from each part of the duplex. $2000 a month in total.
Overall, the average rent price in the United States is $1,249.
In 10 years you will collect a total of about $240,000 in revenue. In most cases, this means you will either break even or make a profit from your real estate investment, JUST from the rent collected alone.
In 10 years time however, the value of your property will have increased significantly.
If you were to sell this property after 10 years, then you would have an additional few hundred thousands dollars in profit you would make in total.
Real estate has historically appreciated at a rate of between 3% and 5% per year.
The U.S. House Price Index shows that prices have risen at 3.4% per year on average since 1991, so we’ll use that to illustrate our calculations.
So using this average if you buy an investment property worth $200,000, and you’d like to estimate what its value will be in 10 years. Using 3.4% appreciation per year, you can calculate the potential future value of the property at $280,000.
The monthly revenue should cover your payments, maintenance and taxes, plus provide you a small amount of profit at the end of each month.
We’ll discuss how you can afford investments like these in your 20s, below…
With Wealth Buying Property – Land Property, Resource Property
10 – 20 acres of land in the United States cost between $31,000 – $62,000
The average price per acre in the United States, in 2020 was $3,100. Some extremely developed big city areas and lake properties are much higher.
Let’s assume you decide to hold on to your land property for 10 years. You collect in land rental from various source, maybe around $1,000 a month.
After 10 years you have a total revenue return of $120,000. If you also sold the property afterwards, you may make another $40,000 -$70,000 in revenue.
In total profit you’ll have earned around $185,000 or possibly even more.
The monthly revenue should cover your payments and taxes, plus provide you a small amount of profit at the end of each month.
Buying land is a cheaper and in some cases better alternative then buying real estate properties themselves in some areas.
**Note: With all investments there is risk, buying real estate is considered on of the most safe investments, because it is backed by something tangible.
Building Wealth By Purchasing Businesses – Online businesses, offline businesses
From the low $10,000’s mark to $1,000,000’s, there are many active businesses that are looking to be acquired.
Some business owners aren’t seeing the profits they wish for, others just want to get rid of the responsibility of managing their business.
Regardless of why people are selling their businesses, they are for sale in many cases.
By buying into or buying an entire business at once, you are essentially acquiring all it’s monthly profits / revenue while also getting the net value of the business as well.
For an example…
Let’s say you buy a business for $200,000 that is generating you now $4,000 a month in take home profits – meaning after expenses and loan payments made.
After 10 years of owning this business, assuming it’s profit margins neither increase nor decrease, you’ll have made a total of $480,000.
That alone is a very nice recurring profit generated by the business. The purchase will also be a tax deduction, and if you decide to eventually sell the business – you will acquire even more money for what the business total value and worth is.
Or once the business is paid off you could hire someone to fully manage it, and you keep reaping in passive profits, year after year.
Personally, this is one of our favorite ways to increase wealth.
Buying small businesses that generative positive returns regularly, will allow you to expand and grow your wealth extremely fast.
Now, how can someone in their 20s afford investments in assets like this?
You’ll be able to afford these kinds of assets by taking out a loan and using credit.
Worried about high monthly payments? Here’s the remaining 4 strategies for growing your wealth that will allow you to afford these loans. (You’ll save, earn, and have much more money on a monthly basis at your disposal)
How To Increase Your Income In Your 20s
Increasing your monthly income in your 20s is much easier than most people make it out to be.
In fact, you have youth on your side which will give you more flexibility in the ways you are able to increase your income.
Let’s go through each of the best ways you can almost instantly increase your monthly earnings today.
- Ask for a raise.
- Ask for a better paying position in the company.
- Work overtime whenever the opportunity is present.
- Work in a better paying field.
- Work 2 jobs at once.
- Buy a duplex as your first home, live in one side and the rent out the other. Your tenants payment to you pays your loan payment and maybe more. Now you have no housing expense – instant raise!
What each of these single income raising options does, is immediately increase your monthly income.
If you want to truly start scaling your income and wealth fast, you should combine many of these income raising opportunities at once.
Here’s an example of how to increase your income in your 20s (can be done at any age)
- Ask for a better paying position in the current company you’re working for. (if denied, request that you need a raise)
- Following this, send out applications regardless – to all nearby job opportunities that pay more than what you’ll make after a raise with your current company.
- Work a minimum of 5-10 hours more per week in overtime. 10-20% overtime equals more money for you to invest in income assets.
By following many of these strategies at once, you enable yourself to quickly grow your monthly earnings by almost double or more. Don’t believe me?
Let’s assume you normally make $2,000 every 2 weeks. That equates to $52,000 a year. (This is the equivalent to making $25 per hour, and working 40 hour work weeks)
Calculating the suggested changes above….
- You get the raise (yay!) or are hired to work a better and higher paying position. The new pay for you is $28 per hour.
- You work 7 hours overtime time every week, for the whole year. This is 364 more hours a year, at a 1.5X rate (time and a half) that = $15,288 earned in just overtime income alone. Plus you made $3.00 more per hour for your regular pay, that an increase of another $6,240.
- Maybe you even get a bonus from your job, after putting in these extra work hours and energy.
Before we asked for a raise, worked more overtime, etc., you have made $52,000 a year!
Your total earnings now is, $58,240 (base pay after increase) + $15,288 (Overtime) = $73,528.
That’s an instant 50% increase in your immediate income!
What if you worked 10 hours a week in overtime .VS. 7?
You’d earn $21,840 in overtime alone, and earn a total of $80,080.
That’s an increase of almost 30 grand of your original income before you sought out better pay.
As you see, there are some effective and simple strategies to instantly increase your income that will allow you to afford investments, assets, and others items, normally beyond your comfort level.
How To Cut Costs In Your 20s
A new pair of Air Jordan’s, or an investment into your savings? The new iPhone 29, or keep the money in your bank in case your car breaks down?
Often the younger generations have a higher interest in consumer goods, which can drastically affect the balances in their bank accounts.
If you really want to follow the path to building wealth in your 20s the right way, you will need to cut down unnecessary expenses.
Here are the 4 different expenses you can cut out of your life to have more money available to be saved, invested, etc…
- Clothing, and especially high cost brand names.
- Going out to eat excessively.
- Getting the NEWEST iPhone, sneakers, headphones, etc…
- Recurring subscriptions like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, phone bill, rent, etc…
You can still enjoy some of these things, while consuming them less.
You can decrease the “level” of subscriptions, buy clothes less often, eat out less, and only get the “new and best thing” once in awhile.
I promise, you’ll still enjoy your life and get access to the luxuries you want. Just understand, that the more money you save from reducing these expenses, the faster your overall net worth and wealth will grow for you.
You’ll be more liquid, and have excessive available capital to be allocated towards wealth building assets. Be smart with the money you do have..
My Friend Mike The Young Millionaire
I am going to give you an example of a friend of mine named “Mike” who became a millionaire before he was 30.
Mike started working at 16 and was always smart with his money, he always worked hard – had a side hustle besides his job. But was not in a hurry to move out on his own, so he stayed living with his parents until he was 28.
Instead of purchasing a home or renting a place, he bought a duplex when he was like 20.
Now he could have moved into it, and his tenant would have paid the mortgage on it, but he stayed living with his parents, and banked the rent payments from two tenants.
At the same time, because he did not move out, and had no real immediately bigger living expenses, he invested much of his job money as well, into stocks.
Mike also never went out to eat much, he always packed a lunch from home when working, and bought groceries for him and his folks for their other meals.
Everyone called Mike a pinch penny..Mike was not in a rush and knew what he was doing.
So he did not waste any of his money.
Fast forward: Mike can now buy pretty much anything he wants.
He owns several rental properties, he has a beautiful lake home, and a massive garage/man-cave most men would die for, I believe it is like 48X80.
He owns multiple vehicles, a gorgeous very expensive Harley Davidson, that are all paid for.
The moral of the story is: Be like Mike, and think before you buy!
That is if you want to build real wealth early in life…
How To Invest In Your 20s

Each of these investments have the potential to scale in value and also earn you APY.

With hedge funds, every industry across the planet, and the largest companies in the world – all putting billions of dollars of investments into crypto – it’s here to stay and will continue growing rapidly year after year.
However, Crypto isn’t the only place for you to consider for scaling your wealth successfully.
Crypto can be volatile, and as with any investment there are risk, you should never put all of your eggs in one basket. Because if those eggs break you are sunk, end of story.
Stocks, bonds, gold, and silver – also have performed well and brought investors extremely generous returns.
One great aspect of investing in any of these financial assets, is that the barrier price of entry is much lower than other forms of growing wealth.
Whether you’re investing in Cryptocurrencies that earn a certain % APY, or you decide to invest in certain stocks that offer dividends – these investments can be made with any amount of money you have available.
Stocks have something called drip plans, where you can invest in fractional shares.
Not all stocks have this, but many popular ones do.
If you are in a situation where it’s hard to save money, you aren’t earning very much, and there’s not a lot you can do to improve your situation – these may be the investing places for you to put your money into.

How To Pay Off Debt In Your 20s
Debt is the largest crippling financial factor that has not just destroyed our nation, debt is currently ruining the financial abilities of almost every single American.
The average American has $90,460 in debt! The worst part about debt is not the debt itself, it’s the high interest rates you’re paying because of the debt.

So, how do you escape the debt you may be in?
You MUST pay it off as fast as you’re capable. Otherwise, you will have to pay enough in interest, that it can take decades to pay off even smaller debts. Your debt should be paid off in the following order.
