➡ My short-term goal: +50%
Once I have paid my student loan and leverage loan, it is possible for me to have +50% savings rate 😎
However, the outlook is latest in January 2020. I hope it’s possible before, but then I need to improve my income streams.
I have a short-term goal and I want to increase my income by 20% before the end of 2020.
The savings rate and financial independence
When your annual return on investments covers 100% of your expenses then you are financially independent.
Savings rate: Working years until retirement: 10% 51,4 20% 36,7 30% 28 40% 21,6 50% 16,6 60% 12,4 70% 8,8 80% 5,6 90% 2,7
It really shows the effect of a high savings rate. What matters is not your earnings, but how much you can save to invest in percent.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I save more money?
You will first have to make a budget that contains everything. Then you can see where your income “disappears”. It may be that you have bought a too expensive house or car. Maybe you have too expensive habits? Perhaps you pay off on debt?
You need to review your spending and see how to optimize and be smarter.
This is a very individual question, but most people can find places in their economy that can be optimized.
It also takes time. Eg. I’ve had a saving of 40% for a long time, but once I’ve paid my debt it will rise to 50%.
