Key Quotes:

  • “I want my children to be in a better position than what I’m in today. And, that’s why we have to make sure we’re saving and we don’t buy those big purchases.” – Xavier Angel
  • “How much you save is going to depend on the individual. Not everyone is going to be able to save 25%, and give 25%, and live off of 50%. But, I think putting together that strategy or building a plan while leaving something behind… that’s where you start.” – Xavier Angel
  • “We need to teach our children that as they save, teach them what compound interest is. Because, what they’re putting away today, whether it’s $2 or $5. Today, here’s what it could potentially grow to when they’re 60 or 65 years old. And that’s going to be how we start that generational wealth… by teaching our children at an early age.” – Xavier Angel
