9 Ways to Get Rich Quicker

Get rich quick

As a general rule, the team at Kiplinger champions the art of getting rich slowly. "Don't go for the home run," Knight Kiplinger tells us in his classic column "8 Keys to Financial Security." "In investing, as in baseball, those who swing for the fences do hit the occasional home run. But they strike out a lot, too, and their lifetime batting average -- average annual total return -- suffers accordingly."

But maybe you're willing to take some calculated risks in pursuit of the freedom that money (and lots of it) can give you to make choices that can bring satisfaction, whether that means buying your dream home, giving generously to charity or escaping the 9-to-5 grind. In that spirit, we focus on nine faster roads to riches, with varying levels of risk. The people we interviewed who have made it big didn't always get there on the first or second try. But they all share essential qualities for success: passion, persistence and patience.

1 - Save long enough for big purchases (car, house) so that payments plus all other expenses don't go over 50% of net monthly income. Save the other 50%
2 - Never EVER carry a credit card balance (unless it's an emergency)
3 - Every time you get a raise, automatically direct the difference to a savings/investment account
4 - Understand the difference between a want and a need and try to indulge in fewer 'wants'
5 - Cut back spending on monthly expenses like cable, internet, insurance, etc. (look at $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda, for example)
6 - Buy healthy foods and avoid excessive eating out. Pack your own lunches
7 - Focus on accumulating assets. A car is not an asset. Better if they generate cash flow.

EEXPART TECH of the email address. (exparthackers@hotmail.com) its at it again! Cool way to have financial freedom!!! Are you tired of living a poor life,thwisdomtechatmhackers@gmen here is the opportunity you have been waiting for. Get the new ATM BLANK CARD that can hack any ATM MACHINE and withdraw money from any account. You do not require anybody's account number before you can use it. Although you and I knows that its illegal,there is no risk using it. It has SPECIAL FEATURES, that makes the machine unable to detect this very card,and its transaction is can't be traced . You can use it anywhere in the world. With this card,you can withdraw nothing less than $50,000 in a day. So to get the card,reach the hackers via email address :exparthackers@hotmail.com.
