What is COMPOUNDING INTEREST and How It Can Benefit YOU!

Posted on July 10, 2008. Filed under: -- Building Wealth, -- For The Investor In YOU, -- Investing, -- Money Help (in simple terms), -- YOUR Retirement | Tags: , , , , |


By Molly Greaves

If read my posts regularly, you’ve probably noticed that I always say ” if time is on your side.” That’s because when you’re so lucky and don’t even realize the opportunities you have to create a large abundance of wealth. That’s because the sooner you start saving, the more time your money has to compound.

Compounding occurs when the money you invest earns money–such as interest in a savings account or returns on your 401(k) investments– and those earnings in turn earn money. In other words, the more you save now, the more compounding can increase your savings. 

Let’s apply it to real-life.

Start at 20, and set aside 15% of everything you earn (including gifts and such) and you will be in good shape at retirement. Wait until you’re 40, and it will be 25% or more of every dollar earned. Wait until 50, and it will be 45% of every dollar earned.

You can look at it this way too. If you invest $1,000 per year in a tax-deferred account that earns 7% a year beginning at age 25, you will end up with $199,635. If you invest the same amount, starting at age 40, and you’ll end up with only $63,249.

Do you remember The Movie, Uncle Buck? Remember the part when someone tells him his car is on-fire?

Do you still see people with their cars “on fire?”

Call this number to Report Smoking Vehicles. The car needs to be put to rest for our environment’s sake. Wouldn’t you agree?

800-453-SMOG (7664)

It’s one small step to reducing our carbon footprint.

Volunteering By Reading Text Books For Blind, Dyslexic and Disabled Folks

Posted on June 30, 2008. Filed under: -- On MY Calendar, -- Uncategorized, -- Volunteering, -- What MOLLY's Up To | Tags: , , , |

By Molly Malone

I love volunteering. I just got back from 3 hours of reading at the RFB&D where I enjoy spending some of my energy reading textbooks for blind students (today I learned how to direct readers and ran the recording technology).  Disabled folks can use our service too, including folks that cant turn the pages because of arthritis for example. Some students have been recently blinded and some were born blind. Either way, it’s very rewarding because of the impact on others. I’m going to join the Ambassador committee soon, so I thought I’d start by sharing some interesting facts with you about the program.

Where I volunteer, we serve Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Pretty fun territory for a gal from Vermont to think about. Wonder what listeners think of my accent?

* In Texas alone, we have over 16,000 borrowers that have benefit from our services.  Nationally, Recording For The Blind & Dyslexic provides over 185,000 people with print disabilities the books they need to learn and succeed. 

* Currently over 700 Texas schools and districts are members of our service.

* Borrowers range from kindergarten-graduate students and continuing education. We have even helped a blind woman graduate successfully from acupuncture school!

*  We have a studio that has 7 recording booths. Everyone gets to direct!

* Johns Hopkins University evaluated the effectiveness of RFB & D’s (reading for blind and dyslexic) recorded textbooks, and found a 38% increase in content acquisition reading scores.

* Their goal (and mine too, which is why I volunteer here) is for all people to have access to the printed world.

And if you’re in Texas, they’re just right up the street off of Lamar and 45th!
