Make your investments work for you

Many people work hard, but they let their investments be lazy. They work for 40 or more hours a week, but put no time into investing.

Why does this matter? It can add up to millions over your lifetime!

I’m going to share a simple strategy I use in my retirement portfolio that requires very little time, but makes significantly more over the long run.

Basic assumptions to illustrate:

  • John moved from one job to another in September of 2000 to make $48,000 a year.

  • He had $10,000 in his retirement account at the time of the job change in 2000.

  • He always saves 10% of his income to retirement.

  • His wages have grown 5% annually to around $148,000 now.

If John had simply invested in a low cost S&P 500 ETF and automatically reinvested the dividends, he would have made almost 7% annually on average and his retirement account would be worth around $463,000 in September 2023.

The simple mechanical trading strategy I use had over 10% annualized returns during the same timeframe in back testing. Using all of John’s assumptions above with a 10% return means John would have had over $684,000 over the same 23 year period.

John would have had over $221,000 more in his retirement account following this simple strategy. I don’t know of anything else that earns so much with so little time.

To everyone who wants their money to work as hard as they do, check out to see how you can follow this same simple strategy.

The Bottom Line:

Don't let your investments be lazy. Make them work for you. With very little time and effort, you can grow your wealth over the long term and reach your financial goals.
