How Long Does It Take To Become A Millionaire?

February 16, 2023

In this highlight, we discuss how long it takes to become a millionaire. This highlight clip comes from our show, “The Most Valuable Asset in Building Wealth!”


Many people believe that personal finance is only relevant to young individuals. However, this is far from the truth. While it is true that younger people have more time on their hands, it is never too late to start taking control of your finances.

A lot of people believe in get-rich-quick schemes, but the reality is that becoming a millionaire typically takes 27 years. This is according to a study conducted by Ramsey Solutions, which is the largest study of millionaires to date. The average age of a millionaire is 49 years old, which means it takes them over 27 years of saving and investing to reach this status.

This may seem daunting, but the truth is, it’s never too late to start. For example, if you are 35 years old and just starting to take control of your finances, you can still reach millionaire status by the time you’re 62, which is before normal retirement age. If you wait until you’re 40 years old, you can still reach millionaire status by 67, and if you wait until you’re 45 years old, you can still become a millionaire by your early 70s.

If you’re 49 years old and feel like you missed the boat, it’s not too late for you either. Your journey may look a little different, but with a deliberate and purposeful approach, you can still reach millionaire status by your mid-70s. The key is to start taking control of your finances today and using your time wisely.

Personal finance is not just about accumulating wealth; it’s about building a life of abundance, happiness, and fulfillment.

Money is just a tool, but it can be used deliberately to maximize your potential and live the best version of your life. The world is full of advertisements and propaganda that aim to manipulate you into thinking that you need certain things to be rich and happy. However, this is not the case. We want to spread the truth and show you how to build wealth in a way that is sustainable and meaningful.

In conclusion, it’s never too late to start taking control of your finances. No matter your age, you can still build wealth, achieve financial freedom, and live a life of purpose and happiness. By being an active participant in your financial journey, you can create a legacy that you can be proud of.
