How to Be a Unicorn With Money

How to Be a Unicorn with Money

Seen any videos of making cupcakes with rainbow color icing as “unicorn poop“? It’s a craze, so why not develop a unicorn-like mentality with money?

Let’s back this party up. What exactly is a unicorn?

A unicorn is a legendary horse with a single spiraling horn from its forehead. Unicorns are rare, unique, and uncatchable. 

Unicorns are even mentioned multiple times in the bible as a metaphor to represent strength. For example, in the book of Numbers, “God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath, as it were, the strength of a unicorn.” 

In the venture capital world, a unicorn is a tech startup company that reaches a $1 billion dollar market value and performs outside of reality.  

Famous Youtuber, Lilly Singh, says unicorn island is a place where awesome exists, “there’s just no room for anything crummy.”  

Here’s how to be a unicorn with your money.

1. Realize Compound Interest is a Magical Unicorn

When you have money, that makes more money, it’s quite fascinating, it’s like a magical unicorn. Seriously. I started invested as a teenager and throughout my early twenties never invested more than a few hundred dollars a month.

Even through the Great Recession, when the stock market plunged and dropped around 30%, I stayed the course and continued to invest. Now what I’ve invested has almost doubled. Crazy-town.
