I live in a third world shithole and even I have more than that.

100.000$ in an account
100.000$ fund
200.000$ apartment (rent out)

I live with 1 friend and my cousin in a small apartment to save money and drive a used shitty car.
ill have my first million before im 30

Nah, don't want to attract attention or use argument from authority. I'm a millionaire and live like a total poorfag though.

Example: I didn't have a phone until one week ago. Still don't have a car, don't have a job, don't have a girlfriend (or even male friends), don't go out, don't travel, I do nothing with my life.

So it's not like I'm wanting to brag about a big number that appears on my screen.

Proof is generally enough to point a receptive user in the right direction. At least for him to do further research to confirm or make a more informed decision.

I'm new to this board to be honest but I really hope there's more than poor fags in this board talking out of their ass and I can receive some good advice from anons who have decent financial success to some degree.

Don't use trips though that only builds up egos and makes everything worse. Anonymous is always best.

Lived with my parents during university cause I was poor
graduated with Art history degree
starting salary 24k
4 years after graduating I made my first million

Still can't believe it myself. Anyways I don't have more than 200k in my account at any given moment because I'm also investing it in property but I've got two flats in London worth about 2MM each and a string of smaller properties in Manchester.

If you actually care/need proof I can post a pic of my bank statement, I spent £30k last month on myself and I don't pay rent, I can't drive, and I'm single.

Okay, so here's Veeky Forums wisdom in three sentences, which I fully endorse:

get a high-paying position that you will enjoy (if you need it), not to compare yourself with others but to change the world (if you can);
save up a lot of money, don't waste your capital on frivolous fetishes and useless services;
invest it all in low-cost index funds, following the simple but incredibly efficient "lazy portfolio" model.

You can literally leave Veeky Forums forever and be sure you'll reach financial success, if you follow these three instructions and nothing else.

Well by the time I was graduating everyone was already hitting me with that "lib arts enjoy being poor meme" and all my friends desperately began applying to do PhDs, well I was a really good student but more importantly (I guess) was I had a good "eye" for art and good people skills, so my professor recommended me his friend who owned a high end art gallery in New York. From there I started small with absolutely shit pay in a loft to making bank in commissions within a few years. What really propelled me though was becoming friends with my clients who started inviting me to dinner parties etc and helped me then meet new clients. In the art world all these people care about is being "ahead of the trend" so by the age of 29 I made my first mill in a fiscal year. It wasn't 1 mill gbp which annoyed me (because I'm British) but by 31 I'd sorted that. Since then I've invested most of my earnings into property and Bitcoin (inb4 people insult me) of which I have just over 1k. In fact one of the best decisions I think I've made is renting out one of the student flats I have in Manchester in Bitcoin. Obvs there are measures that must be taken due to legal limitations, but it was worth it as I've had this guy living there 2 years now paying me .75 BTC a week.

You're just doing your thing, they're doing theirs. It's not a race. Also no one (no one who's relevant) is impressed by your money. Try to impress by doing interesting things with it instead.

Thank you for the answer user.

I'm close to call a check on the first one. Soon to graduate as an environmental engineer with a focus on water contaminants control technology. I really love my field at this point. Have been networking with two of the major players in the industry here in California and have a decent resume with decent people skills. I'm confident I'll get a good job.

Second one I have to say I will have to do some work on. I don't come from a very well off family, so I've never had a taste of all the luxuries and flashy things. Part of me craves them part of me knows they are worthless and have no real value. Recently or currently the part of me that knows they are worthless is bigger than it's counter part, and the main motivation behind it is that I can invest the money instead and make more money to travel or have a nice house, family etc. Things of more value than just flash.

The third I will have to work even more at. I love risks, I want to get into stocks when I have enough capital on the side, so that I can make money "fast" and save profits on the side by investing them in real estate. I understand this might all be hype and that maybe that just never happens in real life and the "lazy portfolio" model might be the best if not the only way in the long run. Is the possibility of making fast profits on stocks really that bad? By fast I don't mean penny stocks, or schemes and scams, just not the "lazy portfolio" model. This is of course taking into consideration that I would study up on stocks and absolutely everything that relates to it before jumping into it. I have very beginner tier finance knowledge so I would really appreciate your advice. I come from an engineering background.

Regarding luxuries, some make more sense than others. Just avoid the paycheck-to-paycheck mentality, avoid credit card financing, avoid expensive cars that cost gorillions to buy, insure and maintain, etc.

Fast profits on individual stocks are possible, but you must study the market full-time, and even then nothing guarantees you'll be a winner: your method can be improper, you can be talentless, you can be unlucky... and reap big losses. Who knows? Passive investing (through index funds) are the best way to go in your situation since you'll be able to devote your time to your proven, reliable, monetizable skills which are the basis of your future investments--while obtaining handsome returns.

Knowing how to extract the most value from your investments makes no sense if you don't have a serious, steady income to invest in the first place. Worrying about making a dubious 20% instead of the normal 10% is only good for those who have enough capital. It doesn't matter for smaller net worths, since most of your growth (during the first years) still comes from your active income.

After 15 or 20 years, though, compound interest works its magic, and you make so much you're not willing to make a "quick buck" anywore. Launch a compound interest simulation (with monthly deposits) with a reasonable interest of 7 or 8% and you'll see.

Well I mean, the only debt I'm in is a $19,000 auto loan that I pay 450 on err month.

And a steady flow on my credit card that I pay off every month too.

Other than that:
no student loans
no medical debt
no outstanding fucktard credit card spending debt
owe nothing to anyone

Feels good but at the same time it's shitty as fuck because I'm broke as shit. I'm definitely trying to change that though.

well my story is complicated and ridden with irresponsible choices and laziness and procrastination and wasted opportunities.

basically i didn't had to pay for the first degree but i took student loans to have some money to spend. it was a very reasonable loan compared to the others. i had no future i didn't even want to live past 30. i took it for free money. also fucked up my degree so it was a real waste overall.

i turned out alright despite my many failures i just wish i started saving 10 years ago.

Last major art deal was for an Kandinsky, it was a private sale between a Russian buyer based in London and an old lady in New York who smuggled it across from Soviet Union during WW2. Before anyone tells me I'm giving away too much detail,

A) it was a private sale so she'd have to be browsing Veeky Forums to know I'm talking about her

B) I left the art scene three years ago.

Anyways it sold in the low tens and I got a 15% commission.

I left art because of how soul crushing modern art is. (Kandinsky is one of the few I respect) And almost all art produced after WW2 is basically a pyramid scheme with fake buyers shilling the work of art to inflate the prices and trick people with more money than sense that it's going to go up indefinitely in value. Modern art is the original /meme/coin. I actually got a lot of flack for refusing to recommend artists I didn't like towards the end and my colleagues thought I was self-righteous and maybe they were right but it doesn't matter now.

I now buy art I like in auctions for <50k a painting.
