Series of stair steps representing how kaizen will improve your life.

Kaizen can also be used to make you financially independent and build your wealth. Most people who are spendthrifts have no idea where their money goes. No matter how much they earn, they are often cash strapped. There’s always too much month at the end of the money.

By using the Kaizen principle, you will need to track your expenses and look for ways to manage your finances better. Below you will find a few ways that Kaizen will help you manage your money better and build a sizable nest egg.

Kaizen Can Save Money

The habit of saving is one of the most important habits that one should have. Yet, the majority of people do not have this habit. They spend whatever they have and live from paycheck to paycheck.

Use Kaizen to decide just how much you will put aside every month. The amount you save should not be so much that you struggle with your daily expenses. It should be manageable.

Always save the moment your money comes in. Save first and spend later. By saving small amounts regularly and not spending off your savings, you will be motivated to build your savings.

Nature abhors a vacuum and the more money you have in your savings account, the more you’ll want to save. It’s not so much the amount you’re putting aside that matters. It’s the act of saving and that’s what Kaizen will help you do.

By small actions, you’ll build the habit and over time, you will have a sizeable sum.

Kaizen is Continuous Improvement

Cut Your Expenses

Saving your money is just half the equation. Spending is the other half. Use Kaizen to take note of where all your money goes. Write down all your expenses for 2 months and you’ll see a pattern emerge.

You’ll be amazed at how your money goes on frivolous expenses. Use Kaizen to see where you can cut down your expenses. Maybe you’re subscribing to magazines that you never bother reading anymore.

Or it could be the cable TV subscription that you hardly use because you do not watch TV so often these days. It could even be your smoking habit that is costing you quite a bit… and you should use Kaizen to quit smoking too. Your health and expenses will get better.

With the money rescued from being frittered away, you can either save it or invest it wisely

Kaizen Can Supplement Your Income

Another way to build your wealth will be to find ways and means to supplement your income. The more you earn, the more money you’ll have to save and invest. You’ll also be able to indulge in luxuries like travelling, vacations, nice houses, etc.

You can work on amassing a fortune by having multiple streams of income. Online Marketing or real estate investing are great side hustles. By finding something fun, you can find a sustainable income doing something you enjoy.

It will show you what you can do to improve your earning capacity.

Invest Wisely

Saving your money is good… but so is investing a portion of it to get better returns. The power of compound interest and dividends is amazing. By learning to invest slowly and cautiously, you will be a prudent investor.

Kaizen will guide you to taking the long term approach to building wealth. Invest what you can and be risk averse. Only dabble in what you know and understand. Take your time to learn how it all works and make improvements to your investment portfolio as and when needed.

It is all about continuous and gradual improvement. Save what you can, earn what you can and invest what you can. Over time, improve on these till you have enough money to live abundantly. It can be done and the Kaizen way will get you there.
