The Rule of 72

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend, celebrating with the men in your life 🤗.

For the past 2 weeks, we did a Q and A recap on what financial advice we’ve discussed so far.   Again, congratulations to Mrs Jax for winning the 15.00 for a meal of her choice.  Have you ever wondered how long it would take for your money to double if it is sitting in a savings account?🤔

Well wonder no more!  Here is a simple way to calculate the growth.

Rule of 72

In order to see how your money will grow, use the Rule of 72 calculation.  All you need to do is take the percentage rate you’re earning and divide it by 72.  The answer to this equation is how long it takes for your money to double!

Ex:  Let’s say you have $2000 you are looking to deposit into an account and are earning 6% on an account, you would divide the 6% by 72.  This would give you 12. That means your money would double every 12 years, including compounding interest!  6÷72=12😄

Start off amount: $2000

Year 12 $4000

Year 24 $8000

Year 36 $16000

Note: This is if you leave the money in the account to grow, are earning this percentage and are in a “safe account”  that’s not in a volatile investment market.

Remember, most likely no banks are paying 6% on any account at this time, 😏so make sure you are looking at options that will help you maximize your investments.

Have a beautiful and blessed week🤗
