Monitor cashflow with an eagle eye in your start up business. This is one time in life where obsession is a good quality. Every cent counts and if it’s not in your savings or being churned back into your business, it’s in someone else’s pocket.
I totally understand why people fall for stuff like My Millionaire Mentor. But you are right, making money online is not usually ‘done for you’ and their are no secrets to it. It takes actual work and effort 🙂
Although June is typically not a stressful time for most college students, North spent several weeks of his summer diving into his preparation, studying everything from history to linguistics to pop culture. Most importantly, North took the time to watch every episode from each previous season of the show.
According to Ryan Matthews, its founder, the My Millionaire Mentor is a simple 21-step mentoring system which allegedly allows you to earn quickly and easily 4-figure commissions online – more precisely, $1,250, $3,300, or $5,500.
When it comes to self-improvement, investing 10% of your income on yourself will yield a 100X or more return on that investment. For every dollar you spend on your education, skills, and relationships, you’ll get at least 100 dollars back in returns.
As you would expect, the stories are as diverse as the people they highlight. Several people started their own business, one man made his millions in real estate, a firefighter cashed in his pension, and another made his millions working an $11 an hour job (and making wise money decisions along the way).
North had been a fan of the show from a young age, occasionally even pretending to be sick so he could stay home from school and relish the daytime television. His mom, Julie North, was the one who initially introduced him to the show.
Even for those who make a lot of money, if they spend everything they make, they will never build wealth. Sound money management dictates that you invest at least 10% of what you make, though 15 to 20% would be even better.
I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you– it definitely takes some time to make money on a website. I estimate that I spent at least 500 hours building and writing for Millennial Money before I made my first $1. I just did it because I loved. You really gotta love it to put in the time. Ninety percent of the blogs I see these days last less than 6 months – people just burn out which is easy to burn to do when your blog doesn’t have any traffic and it’s not making any money.
Beware of investing during an artificially inflated market, and make sure the monthly mortgage is easily affordable. It would be a good idea to read about the 2008 sub prime mortgage crisis in the United States to learn from cautionary tales.
Membership sites can work a number of different ways. You can simply offer a forum. You might offer monthly video lessons. You can think of a number of different things but you must make sure that you are providing continuous value to your audience.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the military, a battle buddy is someone you are introduced to during basic training. Your battle buddy becomes somewhat of a “best friend.” They know everything about you – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Getting paid to take surveys is a fun way to earn a little side cash and free gift cards, while at the same time impacting the development and/or improvement of the products and services that you use in your daily life.

Thanks so much for this informative post! I have been trying to find a way to work from home ever since my son was born in 2003 and I just haven’t found the right fit yet. I’ve dabbled in the VA thing and sold a few things on ebay. I am actually now starting a business (in its very early stages), but I would love to write articles for magazines as well.

Yes of course you should ask him! If you come from a genuine place most people would be happy to share their knowledge. See how you can assist your boss to the fullest not just what you are hired for.
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.
Joe takes full advantage of the employer match and defers 5%, or $2,500, of his salary each year. His employer will then contribute $2,500 each year as per the matching agreement. (Assume Joe’s salary remains the same until retirement) Here’s the breakdown of his savings over the 34 years.

Interest on debt, whether it be credit card debt, auto loans, student debt, mortgage debt or any other kind of credit, is like a hole in the bottom of your savings bucket. Each month, some of your hard-earned money drips out the bottom in the form of accrued interest. The worst part about interest payments is that you get absolutely nothing in return for that lost money. Paying off all debt, starting with debts with the highest interest rates, should be one of the first steps in the journey to becoming a millionaire.
Over the following months, I kept a close eye on what he was doing and it was easy for me to see that he was messing up the paid campaigns that I had built, but was still clearly making a ton of money. The search engine optimization (SEO) work to help him rank higher on Google for a number of popular searches ended up helping him for a long time until his website one day disappeared. I estimate the work I did for him made him at least $5 million, but I still made a little over $200,000. Still a super solid return on my time.
I’ve been on a streak of finance, business, and self-help books the past several months. So far this is the worst. This book seems like it’s written by an average Joe for a below-average Joe. Everything was common sense, and none of the advice was helpful. Besides that, much of it was repetitious. I don’t know how many different ways you can say “do what you know,” but I read that at least 20 times by chapter 7.
No one is saving your ass. That career you’ve worked hard for may be https://youtu.be/oqILt-n4Qns ruins and only you can fix it. In my situation, I found 90% of those around me only wanted to save themselves. No point dwelling on this fact it’s just the reality of these career situations.
Another way to make money is to play to your strengths and start a very small venture based on it. I knit very well, and instead of starting a shop of my own, i sell the stuff i make to baby boutiques and make a nice profit. You could do the same with baked goods, artwork, or even decorations.
Thank you so much for this great post Brandon. It’s well written and loaded with great information and links to other resources. I just signed up and am looking forward to starting down this path. I’m a business owner and have been for many years, however it’s not a business system which runs on its own without me being intimately involved in the day to day affairs. I essentially own a job. Looking to free myself from this within the next few years. My main strategy will be real estate investing. And my main resource for financial education will be your site. Thanks again!
Define your brand. A brand is nothing more than a belief system that people have about you and your business. People will want to do business with somebody or some company they believe will solve a specific problem they have. You must be seen as the solution to that problem.
