It’s hard not to look at wealthy investors and think, “You’ve got it easy!” For one thing, the sheer volume of their investments means that even a small return can mean big money.
Think about it like this: If a person invests $500,000 into a fund that brings a seven percent return, that’s a $35,000 gain. Someone that invests only $500 into the same fund, though, gets a return that sits around a lousy $35.
It can be frustrating to deal with minimal returns when you’re a limited investor, but it’s reassuring to remember that some of the world’s top investors started in your shoes. They too had limited funds and had to make every penny count for their investments.
Instead of regarding the restrictions on your wallet as a brick wall, use this time to master various markets and truly invest yourself into every decision you make.
