If you want to get rich, start investing — and start as early as you possibly can.

To illustrate the simplicity of building wealth over time, Bach created a chart (which we re-created below) detailing how much money you need to set aside each day, month, or year in order to have $1 million saved by the time you're 65.

The chart assumes you're starting with zero dollars invested. It also assumes a 12% annual return.
