I'm a financial doctor

Doctors find out what problems you have and find solutions to fix the problem. If the doctor is able to help that person, that person will show lots of gratitude and will trust you forever. This is basically what I do as a financial representative at Primerica. I see a client. Find out their needs and goals. Put together a financial needs analysis for the client. Present solutions that meets their needs and goals. Everyone goes home happy. The only difference between the doctor and I is that I don't charge any fees. If I help the client, the company pays me.

A Simple Way to Become Wealthy

Check out this simple advice to investing for retirement from US News & World Report, "A Simple Way to Become Wealthy"

If you are young or don't believe you have enough money to invest, you can open a Roth IRA and invest as little as $25 or $50 each month in a mutual fund. I don't recommend you invest $25 or $50 every month. You should max out your Roth IRA contributions every month. If the maximum contribution allowed for the year is $5000, then divide $5000 by 12, which is about $416.66/month. I highly recommend you setup an pre-authorized checking with your Roth IRA account. Its quite simple and its the best way to make sure you are the first bill to be paid. Most people don't treat themselves as a bill. So they don't create a habit of saving money.

I put away $300/month into my Roth IRA.
