There are a lot of ways you could become a millionaire through business. While I don’t want to waste a lot of time talking about every single one of those ways, let me give you a quick summary of a few of the most common ways people build wealth through business:
Who did it: Dong Nguyen created “Flappy Bird” last spring and claims he organically grew it to the top spot in the App Store. While “Flappy Bird” was at the top, Nguyen told The Verge’s Ellis Hamburger it was generating $50,000 a day. After about a month, Nguyen removed the app from the App Store and Google Play because he felt his game was “too addicting.”
You have skills and knowledge that are awesome in your field. There are other people in different fields who have skills and knowledge completely outside of your current awareness. These people also have assets you don’t have.
We live in a world of infinite possibilities. Your choice will decide which possibility is yours. But it only begins when you begin. Heres a quote from a multi-millionaire,author of the book “Year to success” about affiliate marketing, which is a good place to start.
So let’s do the math: You pay 49$ to sign up, 89$ for “hosting” and 19.95$ every month for a year. That adds up to 377.40$ And that’s without counting all the upsells that they will make you buy once you’re inside the program.
In her career, Gill has held many high profile positions in business life including Citicorp, being the Chief Executive of a financial services group specialising in tax free savings vehicles, was the Chair of a Unit Trust Trade Association, Director on the board of an ethical Unit Trust (with Lord Brian Rix) and was an adviser to the Inland Revenue on tax free savings.
Not sure if you’ve heard, but Uber is an app that basically eliminates the need to ever call a taxi. Instead of calling a cab, you just click “request driver” and then an Uber driver gets a notification and comes and picks you up.
There is no valuable product inside. NONE. All you get, after giving them 138$ of your hard earned money is the “right” to promote their program to others… effectively scamming those other people. Yes, that is 138$ to become a scammer yourself! I’m sure that’s not what you were looking for.
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:

There are hundreds of thousands of small business owners within the U.S. and millions around the world; they form a vibrant core to many national economies. However, a large portion of small businesses do not survive. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, only about 31% of small businesses survive for at least seven years – never mind making it big.
I’ve spoken with people that want to start blogs on the topics they are most passionate about and they assume that they will do well simply because they believe other people love the topics as much as them.
I appreciate your kind words and I’m pleased my article on My Millionaire Mentor was useful. Part of me still wishes it was as easy to make millions as these scams promise, but that just isn’t reality.
Great read..It took me a little longer to slow down the improved qualitiy of life pace..I am now 40 have over 150k annually income but just starting out on the savings & retirement..No wife, kids or debt..but what chance do I have to retire at 60?
And concerning marketing, Simon told EBA’s Bev James, “The convention in recession is to cut marketing budgets. It happens all the time. But marketing efforts will lead you out of the recession. Cutting marketing first is like giving away your shoes! I would never suggest that marketing budgets shouldn’t be reviewed and made to work harder for every penny. But don’t just slash at them and think you are helping your brand!”
Many budding entrepreneurs strive to pass through step one to five, only to bypass step six and proceed to seven. This single business mistake has resulted in the death or painful loss of brilliant ideas and opportunities. I have also seen smart entrepreneurs being launched into a world of tremendous wealth simply because they protected their ideas.
But this company takes the humble out of humble brag and comes straight out the gate with outlandish claims, from the ad that tells you to simply watch a video and they’ll give you $500, to waving the word millionaire in front of your face right in the company’s name.

I got laid off a few months back from my accounting job, (was already confident that I knew my way around the web, seo, web design, Google Adwords, etc.) and I offered my services to local businesses.
Know when to get out. At a certain point, knowing when to pull out of an investment before it collapses from under you is essential. If you’ve surrounded yourself with smart brokers, listen to their advice, but also know when to listen to your gut.
Very good review, Gary. I’ve seen ads for My Millionaire Mentor and I’ve wondered what it’s all about. When things seem too good to be true, they usually are and this just looks like another online scam used to take people’s money. I’m not interested in doing any kind of MLM schemes. I’d rather take time to learn something and make an honest living. 🙂
YES! It is absolutely possible to make side money (or even a second income) online. And yes, it is possible to do it WITHOUT getting involved in scammy “Get Rich Quick” schemes that deceive you into a major disaster.
It depends, really. For example, a company that will need more assets for the production of their products will need more money. On the other hand, a company that probably will not have many expenses could be started with less money. There are many examples of people who started their own business without high amount of money and succeeded. If you have a great idea, pursue it and start your business with as much assets as you have and need to invest. Ultimately, it will pay off and you will gain profit.
Subscription – If you think of something valuable (newsletter, online magazine, etc.) that you can consistently offer on a certain basis (weekly, monthly, etc.), you may want to offer a subscription service. This could be a fee charged each time your product is sent out or on a monthly basis. Either way, this has to be something that your customers can only get by subscribing to your website.
To inspire you, we looked for people who have become rich. Just how did they do it? For some, like Julie and Bill, everything flowed quickly from one good idea. Others spent a working lifetime patiently building wealth. We also asked what they’ve done with their wealth — and what advice they have for others. We demonstrate how to find the cash to invest your way to millionaire status.
On the downside, some ClickBank products can be of poor quality, says Bethany Mooradian, owner of QueenoftheRandomJob.com. So some products are easier to pitch than others. One solution is to buy the product ahead of time to assess its quality, she says.
