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!
Education truly is a “silver bullet” for all that ails you. A college degree is called the Million Dollar Gift as it typically provides one more than a million dollars ($1.2 million on average) in additional lifetime income (of course, it should be a degree in something that’s marketable). Did you know many top “for-profit” schools (Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, etc.) provide free tuition for those from families making less than $60-$75,000? Did you know a minority of students are accepted into college just on grades (good thing for me)? And, did you know there’s about $16 billion in aid and that most of it is not merit based? Finally, it is said the “rich” usually plan for three generations while the “poor” only plan for the weekend. Good advice from Rich Dad Poor Dad is to build a financial plan (with a professional planner) and then do it again. A financial plan should not be about getting rich but to primarily just help identify what’s important to you. Plus, it’s difficult to improve what you don’t track.
The excessive, yet subtle grammatical errors was a red flag for me. They also mention having to sign a Non-disclosure agreement, while also peppering the video with a few “British” accents. Both of these things try to give credence to a scam, not to mention the “only 7 spots left” comments within the video.
Failure is inevitable. Humans and business are imperfect. Failure is feedback and opportunity. Fail, but fail early before you invest more than you must or before you compromise your brand. Bezos was interviewed by his brother at Los Angeles’ Summit 2017 where he stated that at the age of 30 he recognized failure was okay but trying was not.
An out of control ego at the start should be a massive red flag. It only gets worse later on. Selfish pursuits of power and success always end in tears – even in sales. High-performing salespeople are leaders in the making and want to duplicate their qualities in the up and coming sales staff.
I managed to become a millionaire thru saving and investing, no business, no real estate empire. We have 4 kids (who go to private school), my wife stays at home and the most I have made is 100k a year. I didn’t start saving at all until I was in my 30’s and we crossed the line about 1.5 years ago when I was 45. In my opinion, the key ingredient is self discipline. Which, as you correctly describe, is simple but never easy. Congratulations on an amazing post, well written, very informative and hope I hope that it goes viral.
“The safest investment I’ve ever made is in my future,” writes Hughes. “Read at least 30 minutes a day, listen to relevant podcasts while driving and seek out mentors vigorously. You don’t just need to be a master in your field, you need to be a well-rounded genius capable of talking about any subject whether it is financial, political or sports related. Consume knowledge like air and put your pursuit of learning above all else.”
That’s right, in how to become a millionaire reddit to access the full MTTB system, people will have to cough up an additional $1,997! While this would be fine if this information was explicitly mentioned in the beginning, this ‘upsell’ (which is how they justify it) is not mentioned anywhere in the marketing materials for My Millionaire Mentor. While this is not a scam as people can opt out, its upfront omission is definitely a shady and disingenuous practice.
As I mentioned above, building online forums can be a great source of income, but new forums have a hard time attracting members. People are more likely to join your forum if your forum looks busy and there are already other people participating in it.
Blogs can be a formidable revenue generator. People have taken advantage of their blogs by placing AdSense ads, selling their own stuff, selling affiliate products, hawking advertising space, and many more.
