Just 21 years old, he’s already saved over $100,000

As soon as Nihar Suthar got his first job, as a tutor for his college’s athletics department, he started saving.

“I have been investing since last year, but have been saving money from the time I started college in 2012,” says Suthar, who is now a consultant at the firm Roland Berger in Boston, helping clients figure out ways to cut costs or increase revenue. 

To date, his savings, which he keeps in a brokerage account, have grown to $109,000, thanks to money he earned doing odd jobs at school, stockpiling cash from internships and banking a $15,000 gift from his dad for graduating early from Cornell University. 

On the side, he writes inspirational books, netting him extra funds from royalty checks.
