Chances are, you don’t know what you don’t know. So you’ll need to start really educating yourself about how you could conceivably achieve your goal. You’ll need to get bolder about the work you’re doing. You’ll need to create more, and fail more. Over and over, in fact. Quantity is often the fastest path to quality.
On this episode of Driving with John Chow, I show you a simple way to improve the sound quality of your YouTube videos. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money either. My audio set up consist of a Zoom H1 and a GiantSquid Audio Lav Mic and cost less than $110. The two adds professional level audio to […]
Action item: Register as a Reporter on HARO and submit a query. If your site has an Alexa Rank of one million or less, this will be more effective. If it doesn’t, keep cranking away, and you will eventually get there.
Good starting list! I appreciate the idea of establishing a small income stream that may compound into substantial revenue in the future. The same principal applies to investing and anyone that believes there is not work involved or that you can get rich quick with little effort is greatly mistaken. I have owned/sold several successful businesses, none of which were built over night or the easy way – long hours are mandatory for any business and you can forget about “The Hourly Value of Your Time” – that’s an employee mindset.
I’ve learned that, for better or worse, people are more than willing to give you their advice, and often their $.02 is worth just that. I’ve also discovered that trusting in the wrong people can be even more detrimental to your career than having no guidance at all. Our Mentors and this program are here to give you the opportunity to solicit advice from those proven worthy by the real estate industry, their peers and, most importantly, me. Our Mentors aren’t retirees who’ve been away from the business for years and are looking to pad their social security checks, and they aren’t MBA graduates with no real-world experience. They’re all successful professionals currently involved in the real estate business whose up-to-date knowledge, advice and opinions are based on their understanding and first-hand experience in the current market and its patterns and behaviors. I personally select each Mentor based on wide, strict criteria. Since our Mentors are all successful, real estate professionals, we limit each of their student loads to a 15-student maximum. This not only allows them to be able to maintain their personal real estate business as well as Mentor businesses together, but it also benefits you by ensuring you’ll not be fighting with other students for your Mentor’s attention. If you’re accepted into one of the coveted mentoring student positions, we’ll pair you with a Mentor who we feel will best suit you and your budding business. Our Mentors are located all over the country, and we’ll work to pair you with one who’s close to and/or extremely knowledgeable about the region of the country you are most focused in. To ensure each and every Mentor in this program fulfills their end of the agreement, they are required to submit weekly progress reports. Your Mentor will also be responsible for:
Sites like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. pay you for fixing their search https://youtu.be/knlhNoFr-GY You just have to mend the errors of the search engine results and make them qualitative, relevant, and useful. Doing this you can earn around $12 per hour.
Finally, if you have done the previous four items the only thing left to do is to continue doing it and stick to the plan. As far as income is concerned, always be on the lookout for ways to increase your income, whether it is through climbing the ladder at your current job, finding work elsewhere, or maybe even starting a business on the side. Increased income will mean you can save even more, provided you aren’t foolishly spending the additional money. As that additional money gets tucked away into savings or investments it will continue to grow even more quickly.
As the calculations above show, you do not have to make 6 figures a year to be a millionaire. Just maxing out your 401k contributions will turn you into a millionaire in about 20 years. But, you do have to make some money. You are never going to build wealth without some motivation to earn a reasonable income.
2. Each month, invest in a diversified investment portfolio. One of the most lucrative investing portfolios over time has been 50% in blue chip stocks and 50% in investment grade bonds. Over the last 100 years on average, blue chip stocks have paid 10% interest and investment grade bonds have paid 6%. This gives you an average return of 8%.
A career crisis that you know is forcing you to move on must be thought about like the Titanic. If your perception of reality is that the ship is sinking and there are leaky holes everywhere, then waiting around is going to force your ass into the freezing cold water.
My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
The show’s original three lifelines are “50/50”, in which the computer eliminates two of the incorrect answers; “Phone a Friend”, in which the contestant makes a thirty-second call to one of a number of friends (who provide their phone numbers in advance) and reads them the question and answer choices, after which the friend provides input; and “Ask the Audience”, in which audience members use touch pads to designate what they believe the correct answer to be, after which the percentage of the audience choosing each specific option is displayed to the contestant. In countries where the show is broadcast live, friends selected for Phone-a-Friend are alerted when their contestant begins to play the main game, and are told to keep the phone free and to wait for three rings before answering. Phone-a-Friend was removed from the U.S. version beginning with the episode that aired on 11 January 2010, after it was determined that there was an increasing trend of contestants’ friends using web search engines and other Internet resources to assist them, which unfairly privileged individuals who had computer access over those who did not, and that it was contrary to the original intent of the lifeline, by which friends were supposed to provide assistance based on what they already knew. From 2004 to 2008, the U.S. version had a fourth lifeline called “Switch the Question”, earned upon answering question ten, in which the computer replaced, at the contestant’s request, one question with another of the same monetary value; however, any lifelines used on the original question were not reinstated for the new question. Switch the Question returned as Cut the Question for a special week of shows with child contestants aired in 2014 (in the latter case, it could only be used on the first ten questions).
Your environment is going to be the key to your success and mostly your mindset. It is really true if you are spending most of your time with affluent people it is bound to rub off on you. The Law of Attraction states “Like Attracts Like”.
Rule No. 3: Get a customer! This is probably the most important rule for any entrepreneur. I’ve written about this before (“The Easiest Way To Succeed As An Entrepreneur”). People want to go the “magical path” – i.e. get VC money, quit their jobs, build a product, and then suddenly have millions of customers. It NEVER works like that.
In addition to things I can do when I need money now, I’ve included ways to quickly borrow money and cash in on things around the house, plus a few tricks to get friends to help out while helping them.
If you don’t appreciate and give to your relationships, your relationships will suffer. All relationships are like bank accounts, and if one person is constantly depositing and the other person is constantly withdrawing, eventually all of the resources become depleted.
Nearly every second spent on social media is consumed time. You can’t have that time back. Rather than making your future better, it actually made your future worse. Just like eating bad food, every consumed moment leaves you worse off. Every invested moment leaves you better off.
Do good business. Plain and simple. Whether you’re selling on a small site or opening an online store, your customer service matters. You’ll want to get those positive reviews and make a good name for yourself. Respond to questions, concerns and complaints. Offer a guarantee if available.
Jaime, I love your post, thank you so much for such great tips. I have used HARO for years (most recently through Vocus) and I can testify to how much of an asset it is to growing your personal brand (as I have helped many clients do the same – with this resource as part of the driving force). Another thing I love about your suggestions is that when you attend networking functions you actually invite them to other events! What a brilliant idea! Would you mind if I shared your tips with my students? I currently teach 3 different Marketing Courses at the Centre for Arts and Technology and I am certain these would be well appreciated words of wisdom. P.S. If you would ever consider being a guest speaker for us too – I would love to engage the idea. You can find me a cijaye dot com. Thanks again.

ATMs and vending machines – This requires a bit of upfront investment and sales skills. You need to buy the machines and then make contracts to place those machines in a variety of destinations based on volume of traffic. Still, you can get up and running relatively quickly with this passive income stream.
The same concept applies, whether it be to companies, or individual performance. Improvements are identified, specific changes are required for the transition and then deliberate immersion until they are automatized.
Describe the kind of gigs you are offering to your potential clients, be it making breakfast delivery, singing a song to the wedding anniversary, dress up as a Spider-man, or anything else you can imagine.
I think you missed the point: these words have helped me. I have no consumer debt, a reasonable mortgage payment with a lot of equity, a healthy retirement account based on my age and income, and strong professional prospects. I earn money, live within my means, save and invest that money, and repeat the process. I am well on my way to becoming a millionaire, and I wish you the same success.
How to Make Millions is a one of a kind educational DVD for beginners or experts with years of experinece. The amount of knowledge crammed in a 34 hour video is very impressive. Tim Sykes makes it very clear in the beginning that it doesn’t take an Albert Einstein to make millions. Overall I was blown away by this video having little to no knowledge of penny stocks or real the stock market at all. I have learned so much from this video I can’t stop watching. Tim Syke’s has given us a gift from god and the money used for How to Make Millions is donated to charity. Thanks Tim.

Our second goal is to give you the OPTIMUM LEISURELY LIFESTYLE. If you have to spend one single hour working at something you do not want to do, you do not have the OPTIMUM LEISURELY LIFESTYLE. You want to spend every hour of your life on the most important things, like your relationships and what excites you.
Third, I see that I found your site not in error but fate. I finnaly found a human being behind a website. I do know “NOW” how people can truly make money online and I am extatic to get started. From reading your list of comments, some did not understand the meaning of being new to trying to make money online. How they say “Just start a website or Blog”. Some of us thought RSS Feed, Niche, Keyword Search,etc was greek. In otherwords, like me being a nurse it would be like a Dr. telling me to just run down and handle my brain surgery for me!LOL!!I did however find most of their websites informative as well enjoyable. Again, You are an “ANGEL” and I am looking forward to your next post!! I will keep you posted on my success.
You don’t need a high-paying job to become a millionaire by the time you retire (or even sooner). All you really need is a smart savings and investment strategy from the get-go, along with a willingness to adopt a lifestyle that supports that strategy. If you make savings a priority early on in your career, you’ll be well on your way to reaping what could be a significant financial reward down the line.
To make a million dollars in less than a year, you must see yourself actually making it. You must believe it is achievable. Ultimately, you must prepare your mind to face the challenges associated with your dream of making a million dollars fast. You must also be prepared for disappointments and set backs along the way.
