How long does it take to become a millionare?

If you invest $3000 per year and get 30% growth per year you'll be a millionaire in about 16.6 years!

Plug in your own numbers and see how long it'll be until you're a millionaire. Or, set your own goal and see how long it'll be until you reach it. Remember to pick a growth % that is an average of what you expect. If you expect that some years you might get 20% and other years you get 40% then pick 30%.
