The problem is that many people just don’t know how to build an audience or don’t put any focus on building an audience. Instead, they concern themselves with blog themes, Twitter posts, and other small things that don’t move the needle.
Your article is both funny, and true. The humorous ways you outlined in the beginning really will make you a millionaire, they are shortcuts, no doubt, but what’s wrong with that? No need to sneer at those who succeed the easy way!
You don’t have to be particularly brilliant or good if you are in the right market. You can make a lot more money being average in a market that is starving than being an exceptional in a market that isn’t.
Yeah, you have a good chance of becoming a millionaire this way……WHEN you are around 70, and thats IF you start in your twenties. Who the HELL wants to live “like noone else” for 50 years, and THEN enjoy it for 5-10?? And do you really expect me to believe that a person who spends 50 years of his life being an annoying cheapskate (yeah, making your kids a christmas present out of dryer lint will teach them responsibility!) will, all of a sudden, retire and start spending lots of money and enjoying themselves??!!! Please. They lived cheap, they will retire cheap and they will DIE cheap. SO, their kids will make out on this deal, and thats a good thing, I admit.
Accept setbacks. No one gets absolutely everything right all the time, so it stands to reason that on your climb to billionaire status you will make a mistake or two with investments, stocks, or other monetary areas. As long you learn from your mistakes you should be able to brush off the loss without too much trouble.

Rich people are typically self-employed and determine the size of their own paycheck, Siebold writes: “It’s not that there aren’t world-class performers who punch a time clock for a paycheck, but for most this is the slowest path to prosperity, promoted as the safest. The great ones know self-employment is the fastest road to wealth.”

Most of these sites like Stuvia & Notesale are free for you to list your notes but tend to take a cut of your profit in order to handle the marketing etc so that you don’t have to go out there and promote your notes yourself.
My point is, with a million dollars in startup capital, there’s a huge and irresistible temptation to start up with a big bang. As long as there is something out there that’s necessary for your business, even if it’s not very important, you’re very likely to spend because you have a million bucks in your pocket!

In 1945, James debuted the toy at a Gimbals in Philadelphia. He was so nervous about the presentation that he convinced a friend to come and stage the first Slinky sale. His nerves were completely unwarranted because the first 400 sold out within 90 minutes. A quarter of a billion in sales later, the $1 toy and its creator lived very comfortably ever after. Well, sort of.
These are retirement accounts. That means you’ll be able to accrue gains with big tax advantages with one caveat: you promise to save and invest long term. That means you can buy and sell shares of almost anything as often as you want as long as you leave the money in your account until you get near retirement age.
Without a doubt, this is the quickest way to become a millionaire. I was in Vegas the other day, and there are a ton of ways to strike it big as well. The problem? Your chances are one in a billion. Good luck and start rolling the dice if this is the way you want to pursue wealth.
very positive word but I wonder if they are still valid given the curent stste of the finacial markets? Who would but shares today? I was a mortgage broker and financial advisor on a relatively high income, but now I have been unemployed for 6 months. My savings have gone and no job is on the horizon. I had thought to start my own company but with no money and experience only in financial services what can I do? I remain optomistic but really I am out of ideas and of course being the wrong side of 40 doesnt make things easier. I would be glad of constructive comments.
There are literally tons of affiliate marketing programs online. Some are legitimate while others are scams, the legitimate ones that you may be familiar with are Amazon, Ebay, Google, ClickBank, Nike, Coca-Cola, Walmart, BestBuy and many others.
It takes delivering real value that people will benefit from. It takes an almost-altruistic attitude of doing the most amount of work for the least initial return. If you’ve come across some system that all-but guarantees you’ll get rich, scrutinize it before buying into the hype.
At the peak of the Beanie Baby craze, Ty reportedly raked in $700 million in one year. Call it a scam, but Ty’s line of collectibles created the most insane fad frenzy of all time, and he now sits on billions.
The Scottish Falkland’s veteran is also a member of the appeal board for the Combat Stress Enemy Within appeal, which is aiming to raise £30m to help veterans traumatised by wartime experiences and he has personally donated a six figure sum to the charity.
Remember how I said I started adulthood with $20,000 in credit card debt? That was a huge mistake, but I’ve made plenty of others. Did you know my first foray into real estate investing was a flop? Are you aware I’ve tried a ton of different business ideas that never worked out?
Is it something you have the skills for? If you don’t know anything about accounting except that the figures are supposed to balance, you probably don’t want to set up your own accounting business. You can always learn, of course, but your learning curve will affect the timetable for your financial plan.
– Be as consistent as possible. No one is going to hand you a million dollars. It took me a few years of constant 14 hour days of hustling to the point we generated our first 7 figures. Now I’m able to leverage my time and money to create greater products and live my lifestyle at the next level.
A little long winded but just stay with me… My wife and I came to the US (to a small farm community in northern CA) as an immigrant 35yrs ago with 3 young kids (1yr, 2yr, 3yr olds), no English speaking skills, just a 3rd world high school education (which is probably equivalent to an 8th grade education here), no marketable skills, and just enough money for the plane ticket here and a 4yr old car when we got here. We first stayed with my sister in law and her husband for about 4 months while my wife and I worked in the fields in the summer harvesting fruit. After scrimping and saving we found our own old and broken down rental out in a peach orchard – it was the only one we could afford that would allow us to save. We continued working in the fields each summer thereafter and, as our 3 children grew , they helped working in the fields on the weekends and summers. Each child started helping out at about the age of 5 yrs old, so we could increase our earnings. The younger ones would play in the field where we worked. The farmers didn’t care, so they let us bring our kids. Over time, we, all 5, would work in the summers harvesting fruit and getting paid for each box filled. We were the slowest among the workers and filled the fewest boxes, but we persevered summer after summer. Then about 4-5 yrs after arriving in the US I got a farm job for the off season but on days it would rain, I didn’t have any work at all, so no pay. We never had health insurance so we tried hard to stay healthy. But at least I was able to earn some more money in addition to the summer earnings. So there we were, about 4-5 yrs after arriving, working in the fields, I made minimum wage with my farm job and my young family making a combined of less than minimum wage in the summer (remember how I said we got paid piece work and filled the fewest boxes?) – essentially, one min wage job and another 1/2 min wage job. But we persevered. Our kids would start working weekends at the start of summer and miss the 1st 2 weeks of school at the start just to get that extra income before the summer came to a close each year. But we all pulled together, saved for enough of a down pmt on a small house in town so we could afford the mortgage pmt and still be able to save. We splurged here and there (eating out a few times a year, buying a few nice things and keeping them FOREVER (new TV, new car, new furniture, new appliances), new clothes for school each year (never the trendy ones though – they cost too much – the kids knew how hard it was to earn a buck so they were happy for just the new clothes even if they weren’t trendy). Needless to say, we didn’t 1) buy morning coffees, 2) go out to lunch, 3) take vacations, 4) Waste stuff only to have to buy a replacement, 4) waste money on junk food, only the nutritional basics (we just couldn’t afford to do that AND save some for when there was no work due to rain). We ran into some medical problems, needing a few surgeries that ended up costing as much as a new car each time. But we needed it, didn’t have insurance, and had the savings so we had to pay. But we still persevered. We lived simply and saved simply. We didn’t get into investing in anything other than CD’s. I couldn’t even begin to understand that stock stuff so I avoided it. This continued for over a decade. Then my kids were in high school and got jobs at fast food so they made min wage – a step up from the field work and we saved their earnings as well. They would work 2 jobs in the summer – fields during the day and fast food during the evening/night – it was tough but it was only for the summer. As time went on, our WHOLE FAMILY COMBINED, FINALLY STARTED EARNING maybe about 2/3 of what an elementary school teacher earned (my uncle was one and I remember him alone earning more than our whole family earned). But we persevered. While my kids were in high school, we saved and eventually bought a bigger and nicer house in a nicer neighborhood and eventually paid it off. I still made min wage, wife worked doing seasonal work, kids help on weekends/summers. My kids went to a local community college and drove from home each day – the traditional going away to college was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. All 3 still worked weekends fast food and both, fast food and field work, during summers. I still earned min wage and my wife worked seasonal during the summers. With a few scholarships, financial aid, we were able to pay for college. They then transferred to a nearby university, still drove each day from home to college, while maintaining the weekend/summer work. Again, with a little from scholarship, some financial aid, and working ALOT we paid for their college. Upon finishing college, all 3 moved out to where the jobs were. I still worked min wage, my wife, seasonal work. But we saved and didn’t waste it and lived simple lives. We then bought a bigger house, paid cash, in a nicer neighbor hood (with doctors, dentists, and pharmacists as neighbors) but we still live the same, no reason to change lifestyles. We also have enough for retirement but we continue to work. My neighbors don’t believe I work in the fields. I don’t care, it’s not my job to make them believe. To make a long story even longer, my WHOLE point is that you can STILL DO IT EARNING MIN WAGE! You don’t have to go as extreme as we did but you CAN STILL DO SOMETHING TO GAIN WEALTH! People who will NEVER have any wealth will only focus on excuses and come up with ALL kinds of holes and weaknesses in my story. People who WILL generate wealth will see the same story and come away encouraged to do better.

Getting rich and becoming a millionaire is a taboo topic. Telling someone that you can get it done in five or ten years sounds like an unrealistic and outrageous fantasy. Pull it off and society will suggest that keep your financial success on the ‘down low’ or be labeled a greedy, gluttonous elitist.
Real estate rentals – Clearly this takes some capital to setup. It’s not easy by any means. But it is passive income. Real estate rental brings you automatic income on a monthly basis. It does require some maintenance, for example if a problem arises and repairs are required. But it’s still considered passive income.
Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F), once addressed the power of positivity. “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right,” Ford famously said. It may seem trivial, but staying positive and believing in yourself and your financial commitments is a key component to become a millionaire. Many people simply don’t see themselves as millionaires or don’t believe that they can make it to that point. For millions of people, the only thing standing between them and that magic number is themselves and their ability to execute a long-term financial plan.
I agree! I have these traits and I’m doing well with my finances. But there is one lacking, Willingness to Share/Help Others. This does not mean that we are obliged to help others. We can feel it to whom we will offer our help. There’s joy from within if we can extend help to others.
That’s an exceptional example, but when saving for retirement your greatest advantage is time. You have time to weather the bumps in the market. And over years, those tax-free gains are an amazing deal.
I also asked them how I could assist them in return and offered my knowledge of social media as a bargaining chip. These recruiters give you options so that when you are faced with difficult decisions, you don’t have to accept a career opportunity that you don’t 100% want.
