How to Become Rich
Becoming a millionaire may sound impossible. Millionaire may strike you as a term that’s meant for other people, not you. But that’s just not true.

If you are getting matching dollars from an employer’s 401(k) or other similar retirement plan, you don’t even have to come up with all of that money yourself.

But whether there’s an employer match in the picture or not, you’re going to have to be more aggressive in your savings (and perhaps your earnings as well). Whatever timetable you’re looking at, if you put your mind to it, it can be done.
