According to Entrepreneur Network partner Phil Town, compounding interest is seriously powerful. Compared to past saving methods like using CDs and money market accounts, compound interest bypasses the growth-killing handicaps low returns and modern inflation. Even historic genius Albert Einstein admitted he never fully figured out the mathematics of compounding -- which describes the concept of starting with very little initial capital and eventually having it increase to an astounding new value. 

Even if you can only invest a small percentage of your income every month, the benefits of time and compounding can reveal the long-term power of investing.
