Sorry I skipped yesterday folks. Here’s a makeup post:

The compounding of money is such a powerful thing. Over time
it can build up. Three elements go into the compounding of money—Amount,
compound rate and time. It can be denoted by the following formula:

Future Value of an amount = (1 +r)^n where

r = rate of return

n = number of periods

With that said:

A single $1,000 amount compounded @ 1% over a period of 10
years which is roughly the equivalent of an online bank account —(1.01)^10 gives
you a multiplier of 1.1046 x $1,000 = $1,104.62

A single $1,000 amount compounded @ 10% over a period of 10
years which is the historical return of the stock market as a whole --- (1.10^10)
gives you a multiplier of 2.5937 x $1,000 = $2,593.70

A single $1,000 amount compounded @ 22% over a period of 10
years which is Warren Buffett level returns --- (1.22^10) gives you a
multiplier of 7.3046 x $1,000 = $7,304.60
