Words of Encouragemint
You're Richer Than You Realize

So many of us struggle and stress about money. Yet if you were to step back for a moment, you might  be able to realize just how rich you truly are.

According to the BBC the mean (or average) salary worldwide for working individuals is less than $20,000 a year. This figure takes into consideration currency exchange rates and purchasing power or how expensive things are in each country. It also considers that not everyone worldwide works, such as children, the elderly, and those who are sick.

You may remember from math class or from statistics that there is a difference between the mean and the median. The mean is the same as the average. It's computed by dividing the number of people by the total figure. For example, if there were five people who had a combined income of $100,000 the mean or average salary would be $20,000 per person.

But what if one person earns $95,000 and the rest much less. That's where the median comes in. It looks for the number is the middle of the pack. It's another way to examine what's considered typical, but in a way that's less impacted by an extreme or unusual number.
