The way to guarantee a prosperous future is to start with a plan. Your plan, however, should be able to make you very wealthy. If you’re young, you can amass a fortune and let it compound as you grow older.
Your million-maker plan should have dividend stocks Power Financial (TSX:PWF) and Great-West Life (TSX:GWO) as anchors. Both are profitable companies that use profits to reinvest in growth, pay down debt, and distribute money to shareholders in the form of dividends.
You can keep reinvesting the dividends you will earn. If you can execute the plan correctly, your net worth will expand and grow as time passes. In the end, you’ll be very wealthy from the dividends alone.

The beauty of investing in Power Financial and Great-West Life is that both are in the business of improving the financial well-being and future financial security of clients. The companies are under the umbrella of Power Corporation of Canada, and therefore the objectives are in sync.
