This is one the best things about investing if not the best. You can actually find investments that will pay you cash just because you put money into that investment.
In fact, Pepsi just paid me my quarterly dividend payment last week. I simply reinvested it. Next quarter I will now get paid a higher dividend because I reivested the dividend into stock. I also just received my interest from my money market accounts which have earned interest on the interest received in the past.
For banks, it is interest. You can find a bank account that will pay you interest for keeping your money there.
For Wall Street, it is called dividends. You can find companies that will pay you a dividend normally every three months just for investing your money in their company.
Here is the thing about both options. They compound. That means you can use and reinvest that money given to obtain a higher interest paying bank account, or buy more stock with the dividend that the company paid you. It becomes so that the interest from the interest account or the dividend payment from the stock bought from previous dividend payment eclipses our wildest thoughts because it happens on a monthly or quarterly basis.
To put it bluntly ( I believe Andrew Carnegie is said to say), this is the goose that lays the golden egg.
Compounding Interest and Dividends are the sure way to wealth. Start now and don't stop. Take a percentage of your income (even 1%) and open and IRA and get busy becoming wealthy.
