Welcome to the MF. As a newbie, you are in for an exciting journey.
The point of the story about the lady that started with
5K and ended up with 22 million was to show us the power of investing in the stock market and to emphasize the "magic of compound interest". The younger you start to save and invest the bigger the pot at the end of the rainbow. Although the lady chose not to pull the money out at any time, she had the option to at any point of her investment career. I know I plan on having a few niceties before I reach the 22 million level!!!

Best Wishes

The G-Man
