Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Things to Check Out - 9.10.07

You're welcome:

Consider this math from Alston: Let's say you're 25 and save $400 a month for 10 years and then stop saving. Your investments earn 10 percent a year. By the time you're 60, the $48,000 you contributed has grown to $911,736.
But if you wait to start saving until 35, you would have to put away $1,037 for 10 years - a total of $124,440 - to come out with $911,299 at 60. And you would have to set aside much, much more if you don't start until your 40s and 50s.
