Compound interest Magic

handwritten note to self
Handwritten note to self during Covid-19’s early days, but referencing life in our 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s: “as i made changes in life…unexpected challenges, growing pains i didn’t expect, and how did i embrace them?”

Small amounts of money invested regularly between 16 -40 years old, without deliberation, is my path to wealth. Didn’t start until almost 30. Magic happens when value doubles every seven years at 10% annual return.


Our secret was picking a blue-chip stock, Disney, and having small weekly automatic payroll deductions buy our stock. Set it and forget it. Stock outperforms all others, over time. We are in a good financial position, even with a late start at age 30.
