I see we have the same mindset. I really believe I’ll be a millionaire in the future, and I’ve been working toward that for many years now. From time to time something can happen unexpected and cause you to have to spend a little more than you earn… you can’t make a habit of doing that though. This was a good article, and should help a lot of people if they will just do it.
These are just a few of the benefits real estate has over many other wealth-building activities. That said, real estate investing is not for those just looking to make a quick buck. It takes time, persistence, knowledge, and sometimes a bit of luck.
What do you already pay for? We already pay people to do a lot of different things. Can you turn one of those things into your own online business? Examples: Clean your home, walk your pet, cook you meals, etc.

That night, I walked around my entire suburb for hours listening to Tony Robbins. I did every exercise he said including the deep breathing and shouting out loud. People in the streets thought I was off my head on drugs.
6. Money doesn’t sleep. Money doesn’t know about clocks, schedules, or holidays, and you shouldn’t either. Money loves people that have a great work ethic. When I was 26 years old, I was in retail sales and while the store closed at 7 I was there until 11 most nights making extra sales. And by staying at work you aren’t spending money you are making it. Money doesn’t sleep, but it sure gets bored and if you pay close attention you will notice when you get bored you spend money. Never try to be the smartest or luckiest person — be the busiest and the most focused. Sleep at night so your body can rest and use the rest of the day to make your dreams come true.
When I plug my numbers into the retirement calculator FIRECalc – yearly spending of $36,000, a $1 million portfolio, and 51 years left to live (based on the US government’s death calculator) – it tells me there’s a 98.9% chance my $1 million won’t be depleted before I die.
If you are looking to learn about more traditional means of starting a business (read: offline), this book does have some good ideas but nothing you’ve not heard or read before if you have read any business or marketing books from the past ten years.

If that seems too hard, check out sites like AirBnB, which help you rent safely and ensure you get paid. I used this service when traveling in Switzerland with a friend and can confirm it is a great service.
Thanks for sharing your tips on making money online, Grant! It was definitely helpful. I’ve had some success making money online with freelancing and sponsored content, but it hasn’t been consistent enough., Though, when I actually got paid, it was good to know that making money online through blogging is possible. In reality, if I want to pursue full-time blogging, I need to take your advice and just keep going. But I need to hustle more to increase traffic and get more consistent with posting. Thanks for the motivation and advice!
Sandeep, I want to say thanks because I was feeling alone in the ocean of make money lies. If you find something good enough to actually join please let me know. Although it aggravates me because I NEED this kinda money, I have yet spent a dime with these crooks. Pat on my back, because I’ve been doing it everyday for a year now.
The reason most people aren’t successful is because they either fear or avoid marketing. For the same reason, most people are bad teachers. They’re more focused on content than the delivery and design of that content.
While some of these are great ideas..others, like Mechanical Turk seem to take a lot of time for very little $. The eHow seems to work. Another suggestion while you are looking for work is to list your resume at sites that pay you when potential employers download your resume. They collect a fee and give you part of it. Resumark.com even pays you when people you’ve invited have their resumes downloaded. I think it’s about $1 for your own resume and $.50 for people you’ve invited..again, not going to get rich but might as well get paid for looking for a job!
From there, I continued that hustle into the launch of my blog. I also launched a YouTube channel and a podcast shortly after. From there, I kept on hustling and eventually wrote my first book, Soldier of Finance.
Great post by Jaime. I have not seen his shows but i guess he is expert in his field. His language and confidance on his topic make this post more impressive. But i think you should change your mindset if you want more traffic than you should interview famous person not only rich person. Basically this is my idea only.
Definitely worth a read. This book has pushed me a little bit to the left. I came in a moderate conservative with libertarian leanings and still am, but after reading this I would favor more regulation of the financial industry than I would have before reading the book.
It’s one of the biggest micro freelancing sites on the planet, and it allows millions of people around the world to earn additional cash doing simple and sometimes rather strange tasks that can not be done by machines and computers.
The problem with traditional debt management within traditional BS money management is that unexpected expenses make it harder to ever dig yourself out from under your bills. It likely feels like you can never get ahead… because you don’t. Therefore, you must save even if at the expense of not paying down your debt faster. If you have debt, you should create a budget that sets aside a monthly amount for that debt after saving. Then, that savings can be your most valuable resource to avoid falling back into debt. If you still can’t seem to stay within your budget, setup your Fun Account in cash. Studies show people have less resistance to using credit cards and checks as to spending cash. Finally, write down everything you buy (at the very least just to spend more time and thought on each and every purchase) and then review your current expenses for surprises as well as areas you know you can cut back (to detail how much). Common hot spots include TV and cell phone contracts as well as eating out. The lifetime expense of a medium sized dog is $16,000 – what message are you sending when effectively taking that money from your children’s college fund?
It’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep. These are all important steps. You should strive to save as much as you can, but even if you can only save a little – something is better than nothing.
i strongly agree with u mcneri. most of the comments failed to impart the essence of becoming a millionaire. having good intentions to become a millionaire, like building foundations for the less fortunate pips, giving employment etc., aside from wanting to achieve financial freedom is a sure way with the guidance from God. FAITH and ACTION is a must… i am not there yet but with this mind, I CAN DO IT.
