Our very own Tyler Bartlett was recently featured in an article from Guide Vine: How to Go from Middle Class to Millionaire, about the patience and discipline required to become a millionaire. Here’s a snippet:
Here is the good news: millionaire status is very much within the reach of America’s middle-classes who earn higher-than-average incomes. A typical middle-class family has a combined household income of $97,000, with upper middle class households bringing in incomes above $100,000. Bartlett offers an example of a couple living in Seattle. Like typical upper middle class Americans, both are college-educated professionals with good, steady incomes. The couple, a real estate and a sales executive, together earns $150,000 per year. For 13 years, this couple saved as much as $1,000 per month. They maxed out their 401(k)s. Today, they have more than $1 million in investible assets. “They took hard steps,” said Bartlett. “They worked full-time jobs and had the discipline to do the right thing financially.”
