At some point, you’ll have enough money saved up where you’ll think, *“I should probably invest this somehow.”*

Below I explain why investing in stock market can be so powerful.

**Invest in Stocks to Grow Your Money**

This is the simplest reason to invest and is often at the core of why people buy stocks.

**When done right, you can grow the money you invest by anywhere from 7% – 10% per year over the long term.**

If you invest $10,000 in the stock market today and it gains roughly 7% per year, you’ll turn that $10,000 into $20,000 in just 10 years without adding extra money.

Now, imagine a longer-term example,

where you’re both a **good saver** and a **smart investor**.

You invest $10,000 of your savings into the market every year for 30 years.

That’s $10,000 this year, another $10,000 next year, another $10,000 the year after that, and so on for 30 years.

So in total, you will have invested $300,000 in stocks over 30 years ($10,000 per year x 30 years).

And let’s assume you achieve the same average yearly returns we used above, 7% per year.

So you’ve invested a total of $300,000 over 30 years,

But guess how much you have in your account at the end of that 30 years.

That’s truly surprising.

**That $10,000 investment per year for 30 years would now be worth $1,010,730.**

**Bottom line:**

**Through regular investing, you can turn $10,000 per year into more than a million dollars over 30 years.**

Now, $300,000 of that million dollars is the money you directly invested each year.

But the other $710,730 is money you made from investing in stocks.

Start Investing, Stay Invested.
