The Intelligent Investor´s Road to $1,000,000
At the age of 43, Tom retired from his 9-5 at Ford Motor through a combined effort of savings and stock market investments, although, on the day when he graduated college, he didn’t have a penny to his name.
Tom reached $1,000,000 and quit his 9-5 to live off his investments before his 44th birthday. More than half of that money came from returns in the stock market, and his investments helped him reach this number 14 years earlier than his salary alone would have done. With this type of money Tom was confident that his stock market returns could cover his yearly expenses.
