Keep track of your investments
We want to build our wealth as much as we can. But how can we do it? In order to build wealth, you should know how to invest your money. Investing allows you to put your money into vehicles that have the potential to earn strong rates of return.
Without investing, you won’t grow your money and you could miss out opportunities to increase your financial worth. Well, there may be a possibility that you’ll lose money in your investments (as there are no sure-fire ways to win at anything), but if you invest wisely, the potential to gain money is higher than if you never invest.
The primary purpose of investing is, of course, growing your money. There are a number of ways to invest your money, but the most popular forms of investment are stocks, mutual funds, bonds and real estate. This return allows your money to build, creating wealth over time.

Then, at retirement age, you can live off funds earned from these investments.
