Getting Rich Takes 2 Steps


Getting rich takes two steps.  This article is about those two steps.

This article is not about the best way to manage your money for all round happiness but purely increasing your net worth as fast as possible because some people have this goal.

Many people want to know specifically how to get rich, but the reality is there is no one way to get rich.

You can make money in anything. Money isn’t real, it is an exchange of value, so there is many different paths to riches.

But one thing is for certain, getting rich takes two steps. Two steps is all you need whatever path you take.

What are the two steps to getting rich?



That’s it.

What you earn minus what you spend will determine your net worth.

The level that you follow this equation will determine the magnitude of your net worth.

To get richer than you are now you need to focus on creating a massive income while cutting expenses to the minimum.

It doesn’t matter where your net worth is at today or what situation you are in, anyone can follow this simple equation and start building their net worth today.

A lot of people will tell you “this is how to get rich” “you need to do this” “you need to do things this way” etc. But there is no right or wrong way to do this.

This equation is all you need to know. Then you need to focus on increasing income and minimizing expenses until you hit your net worth goal.

Here is a list of some ways to do both that I can think of.


Don’t waste money on cigarettes, booze, gambling

Take your lunch to work most days

Live in a property with cheaper rent/mortgage

Pay off debt first

Shop around for better value insurance

If you focus on both increasing income and minimizing expenses you will get richer and richer

Be careful when investing large upfront cost into a business or investment though because If that fails it will set you back.

But that’s it, that’s how you get rich and that’s the only two steps you need to know.

It’s so simple but people don’t think about it and focus on it.

Whatever your situation is today, if you want to increase your net worth, start focusing on increasing your income and minimizing expenses.


Good luck!
