    Saving and investing are the same thing as I define them. So, how do you define them? Once I know your definition I can answer your question.

      I believe that what the OP was asking about is how much is reinvested into the IM business, versus how much is taken out.

      Unfortunately this is something that will vary between any two IMers.

      I don't maintain a fixed ratio between my re-investment and my 'take-home' so to speak. Sometimes the business gets far more than I take home. Other times I take home as much as my business gets.

    Hi Faisal,

    I don't think there's really a ratio per se but the recommended minimum amount is 10% of your income. But if there's anything to be a guide, in order for you to find out how much to save and how much to invest, it would require a proper financial check.

    I know, since I'm in the financial services by training in day.

    Hi Faisal,

    It is possible to concretize this difficultly. The decision is up to you.

    In my experience it is depending on cash flow. The essence is you need to earn more than you spend. First factor is to be safe for everyday life.

    Another factor is your objective, what do you want to achieve? If you want to accelerate your business you need to invest as much as you can afford.

    But be careful, it is expedient to keep reserve some money to the unexpected situations, too.

    Hope it helps,

    Sandor
