A 26-year-old money expert is encouraging people to begin investing by sharing her story of learning to grow her wealth in a viral TikTok.

According to Tori Dunlap, who goes by the username @herfirst100k on TikTok, she is on track to eventually retire with $6m - a feat that she allegedly will have been able to achieve by investing.

“I will have over $6m by the time I retire and I’m only 26,” Dunlap said in the viral video uploaded last week, which has since been viewed more than 4.3m times. “Let’s talk.”

In the video, Dunlap explains that she is an “investment expert” before addressing two “myths” about investing that she hears all the time.

The first myth, according to Dunlap, is that “investing is just for rich people,” with the 26-year-old telling her followers: “How do you think you get rich? You start investing.

“Saving your money is not going to do it, you have to allow your money to work harder for you by investing it in the stock market.”

According to Dunlap, the other myth she often hears is that you have to have a lot of money to invest, with the money expert revealing that that is “also not true” and that the time you dedicate to investing is actually more important.
