So, if currently 6% of all dog owners have heard of your business, how do we increase that percentage to, let’s say, 9%? Perhaps advertising, such as a billboard or direct mail marketing?

The book is comprised of 13 chapters (chapters 12 and 13 are a summary and “directory”, respectively), each related to a certain strategy for developing your idea or selling it to others. Let me say quite clearly, I highly recommend this book for first-time entrepreneurs and the veterans. It covers products, services, common pitfalls to avoid, how to market what you’re selling, how to get ideas for new products and even how to “piggyback” off of others. The marketing ideas within this book are almost limitless if you’re paying attention.

It seems like there are as many definitions of financial planning as there are advisors. A complete financial plan starts with a full listing of your goals and values, identifies your priorities, reviews your current expenditures, reviews alternatives, develops appropriate strategies and solutions, takes the needed actions, and maintains a constant review of everything. But, that is beyond the scope here. Now, before Warren Buffett was a top earner, he learned how to be an Olympic class saver, saving the equivalent of $70,000 in today’s money while paying the tuition and expenses of college. So, let’s just talk about the most basic aspect of a financial plan… how to start a home budget.
Becoming a millionaire isn’t all that difficult and there are countless ways to achieve that milestone. Some people do it through real estate, others start their own business, while some simply get lucky by winning the lottery or winning big on a game show. What is even more interesting is that you don’t have to be wealthy to begin with nor do you have to earn six figures to reach this goal.
I’ve put the Tony Robbins tapes back in repeat mode. The tapes helped me before and they can help again. The same is true for you. You’ve had success habits before that have got you out of a rough patch. In times of crisis, using them again can be very helpful.
1 – Save long enough for big purchases (car, house) so that payments plus all other expenses don’t go over 50% of net monthly income. Save the other 50%2 – Never EVER carry a credit card balance (unless it’s an emergency)3 – Every time you get a raise, automatically direct the difference to a savings/investment account4 – Understand the difference between a want and a need and try to indulge in fewer ‘wants’5 – Cut back spending on monthly expenses like cable, internet, insurance, etc. 6 – Buy healthy foods and avoid excessive eating out. Pack your own lunches7 – Focus on accumulating assets. A car is not an asset. Better if they generate cash flow.
Jenny wants to build wealth through rental properties. So Jenny finds a duplex for $250,000 in her neighborhood. After running a careful analysis, she determines that it is a good deal. Jenny uses a $50,000 down payment and obtains a 30-year loan for $200,000. Combined, both units bring in $3,000 per month, but Jenny’s expenses average just $2,500 per month, leaving her with $500 per month in cash flow, which increases each year as rents climb with inflation. Although that income is taxed, she doesn’t have to pay any because of the depreciation deduction she gets on the property, thus part of the tax benefits of owning it. Over the next 30 years, the value of the home increases to $600,000 (a 3% per year increase due to appreciation). Finally, each year during those 30 years the loan has been paid down, and Jenny owns the duplex free-and-clear. She now has an asset worth $600,000, plus she’s making thousands per month in cash flow.
“It took several years of creative persistence to finally bring our product to the marketplace. The challenges and obstacles that confronted us made reading your book that much more meaningful. We only wish it would have been published several years ago. It certainly would have made our task much easier!”—Dr. Harvey N. Silverman and Dr. Robert O. Wolf, developers of Perfect Smile Tooth Whitening System™
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!
For example, when I write a blog post, I work in a quiet library where I have no distractions. Because my environment facilitates quality writing, and because I knew I’d be writing that day, I write a lot. It’s easier to write two to five blog posts in one sitting than to try writing one post at a time.
Those traits are true and I’m trying to apply most of those in real life. I wish I can be a millionaire too. To be able to discipline yourself well, especially the way you handle your finances, and to be optimistic every now and then can really help you a lot in becoming a millionaire yourself.
