Let’s imagine that you were to contribute the maximum amount allowed to your 401(k) each year ($18,000 as of 2017), beginning at age 20. Assume that you then earn 9% on the money, with the balance compounding.

If you’re in the time and effort economy, you are focused on being busy. You actually believe the amount of time and energy you put into something merits praise. Conversely, when you are in the results economy, you are only focused on achieving a specific result.
I’d wanted to launch my own website since 2010, but it took me five years to find the time to actually do it. Sure, I was pretty busy between 2010 and 2015 trying to make as much money as possible and pursue financial independence. But by 2015, I had enough money in the bank to make work optional and decided to launch Millennial Money to share my story and strategies to become a millennial millionaire.
If you’re having trouble saving 10% or more of your income, or maxing out your tax-advantaged retirement savings, reaching millionaire status can take even longer. Or perhaps you want to speed the process along and meet your goal even sooner.
In other words, can you create systems that work within your business and function with or without you? Can your business grow without you being involved in every aspect? Or are you simply building a job with an income cap? Yes, you might be able to make a living with a business that revolves only around you, but you’ll likely never scale to a level that will make you incredibly wealthy. Treat your business like a machine that has replaceable parts, and seek to make that machine run as smoothly as it can.
It is possible to make good money with the internet and some people do make millions, but they work for it and they learn to leverage the power of the internet to their advantage. It takes skill, commitment and patience, but it can be done honestly.
The historically hard-to-break world of investing in stock markets and how to become a millionaire in your 30s has been cracked wide open. Today there is no need to be a fat cat or fund the yachts of Wolf of Wall Street style stock brokers. You can do it all yourself with the help of online market trading platforms.
Many companies are looking for qualified candidates who know the ins and outs of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to help them with their social marketing efforts. Head over to a job site and search for “social media marketing”.
Thank you for all the advice you offer. Im only 23 years old and stumbled upon your writing on debt management a few months ago and have already reduced my debt by 30%. People may knit pick at what you say but the underlining is always the same…less debt+saving and investing leads financial freedom. I look forward to continuing to read what you have to say and making these millions with you brother.
Your devoted following could mean extra cash. Marketing companies that work with major brands can pay $25 per tweet or more for you to promote a product, though you’ll probably need to have a pretty big audience for this to work.

You’re an ace with a camera. You capture eye-catching images, and you know how to set the scene. You can turn that skill into online income by listing your images on stock-photography sites like Shutterstock and Adobe Stock. You receive a royalty when customers purchase the right to use your work. These sites are always looking for a variety of images, whether it’s lavish food photography or eye-catching scenes of natural beauty.
I fear your wonderful advice comes too late for me. I am 58 years old and have no job skills. The world is a wonderful place for you young people who have jobs and a meaningful life, but for someone like me it is difficult to want to keep going. I feel antiquated and out-of-date. I will never be a millionaire–not even close! What is even worse is that my two grown sons can only find part-time, minimum wage jobs and both of them went to college.
Making a financial plan and investing your savings responsibly can be a bit overwhelming to someone with limited experience, but there’s no shame in seeking professional help. Even if you’re confident in the plan you come up with on your own to become a millionaire, it never hurts to have a financial advisor take a second look. Of course, professional money managers can be a major expense in their own right. Rather than simply turning over your money to a costly active money manager, consider implementing most of your financial plan as independently as possible after initially discussing it with a professional.
The other wants to make money because it allows them to make more things. They want to improve their product. They want to extend their line. They want to create another book, another song, another movie. They love what they make and they see making money as a way to do even more of what they love. They dream of building a company that makes the best things possible…and making money is the way to fuel that dream and build that company they love.
$1000-$10,000 guaranteed per day? I guess this would be a good situation to bring up the good ole saying. “If it seems too good to be true, then it most likely is”. This is really so fake and it really should be obvious it is.

Jamie, I only very recently came across your interviews on YouTube (I think the first one I watched was with MJ DeMarco) but I absolutely love your style; it’s somehow both laid-back and to the point. I’ll definitely be watching more.
The part in the post about interviews resonated with me because I’ve also been really shocked at how willing and happy most people are to be interviewed. I literally started my blog only a few weeks ago and, when I first started requesting interviews, I only had a crappy landing page up. I was shaking in my boots, utterly convinced that everyone would either ignore me or tell me to go jump. So, it was amazing to get really great feedback and almost everyone I’ve asked has agreed to be interviewed. Now, I’m not targeting millionaires like you because my blog is a food blog but rather prominent chefs, who are still crazily busy and often travel a lot, meaning juggling is needed and they can be a challenge to get a hold of.
These are all good to do. I look to them as investments. You need to understand that your money is at risk, but minimal compared to HYIP’s and pyramid schemes that plauge the internet. I find them by searching traffic exchanges. By reading the fine print and examining how profits are made, you can make good choices with your money.
Of course, there are always the stories of people who make an insane amount of money online, but they are the exceptions and it’s unfortunately not as easy as running a few Facebook ads and making bank. Here’s how I know: I’ve built my entire career online. It’s made me a millionaire and helped me reach financial independence at the age of 30. Here’s what I’ve learned over the past 8+ years making money online, both the opportunities and the challenges.
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.
None, I’m as broke as I was before Mr. “frauds e-mail and of his affiliates” Richer, $97.00 or $49.00, thanks to you guys’ opinions that I fortunately took the time to review at the bottom of the entry and applications detailed. Beware all America, things are not necessarily as they appear.

I have always subscribed to paying yourself first, keeping debt under control and living within my means. Fortunately my wife and I have always made pretty good money so it was fairly pain free to be successful. We were so fortunate to not have any breaks in our work history which is a huge factor. For those who need to dip into savings to cover a long period of work outage, it can be devastating. I’m now at retirement age, house is paid for, no debt, million++ in investments…. You don’t know good it feels to be able to sleep good at night knowing that you can deal with anything that comes up.
