That’s comparable to what a middle-class professional with a good pension plan might expect (though the annuity won’t increase with inflation). It certainly isn’t enough to live the high life we used to associate with millionaires.
The only reason to save money is to invest it. Put your saved money into secured, sacred (untouchable) accounts. Never use these accounts for anything, not even an emergency. This will force you to continue to follow step one (increase income). To this day, at least twice a year, I am broke because I always invest my surpluses into ventures I cannot access.
Ken Hakuta should give his mom an extra big hug and kiss for giving him his million-dollar idea. She sent him the nation’s first known Wacky Wall Walker as a gift from China. Fascinated by the gewy toy that appears to walk down the walls it’s thrown against, Hakuta bought the rights for $100,000 and began marketing it in the D.C. area.
The mentality of ” I don’t have enough to start investing and am tapped out” is just that, a mentality. Even if you’re donating a few bucks a week/month, it is about a habit. Getting into it will really help you out. If you don’t have the money, you won’t spend the money is a good mentality to have. Deposit into your 401k each month via direct deposit right off your check if you can, you won’t miss it if you don’t see it. 🙂
The reason most people aren’t successful is because they either fear or avoid marketing. For the same reason, most people are bad teachers. They’re more focused on content than the delivery and design of that content.
Even with all of this traffic, I make between $5,000 – $8,000 each month directly on traffic driven ads meaning https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt5q0P9-evf25stIoIBem1w people who come to the website clock on the banner ads, or click on the links on my recommends page or in my guides on best credit cards or student loan refinancing.

You are very inspiring. I too am trying to find a person that is caring and humble enough to pass on the wisdom that has blessed their lives. A millionaire to learn from. I am a man bent on proving a better life for my family, myself and those that are put in my path for the purpose of blessing and sharing. I have a desire to leave a legacy for my children. God bless and thank you.
Takes a fascinating tour of the wild side of fantasy finance to explain just how hedge fund managers make so much money—and whether or not the million-an-hour crowd produces anything positive for society and the economy
Starting a website with Bluehost takes less than 20 minutes, costs hardly anything and can be done by an 82 year-old. It only takes a bit of plugging on social media to get your first visitors, and there are plenty of ways to monetise your site.
Services – You can offer a paid service, such as life coaching, blog coaching, goal setting or financial planning. Just be sure to investigate all the legal implications and make sure you’re not claiming to be a professional if you’re not one. With a service like this, you’re basically using your blog to sell yourself. You’ll need to convince people that you’re worth buying and then be able to back up your claims once they purchase your service.
I am hoping my success story involves a combination of the blog and consulting. I’ve been really struggling with the consulting lately in an attempt at networking and obtaining more clients. Between the two blogs, keeping up with industry, and maintaining an amicable family relationship I find I am short on time. My wife has not worked for over 2 years so we are on a single income. We do have a child who takes a lot of time and money.
For example, if I run a car blog and I sign up for an affiliate program with a car parts shop, I can link the different car parts that I like on my blog and when people click on the link and purchase from the car parts shop I get a cut.
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!
An Indian version of the program in Hindi, titled Kaun Banega Crorepati (“Who will become a millionaire”), debuted on 3 July 2000, with Amitabh Bachchan hosting in his first appearance on Indian television. Subsequent seasons of the show aired in 2005–06, 2007, and every year since 2010. The Indian version was immortalised by director Danny Boyle in his 2008 drama film Slumdog Millionaire, adapted from the 2005 Indian novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup, which won eight U.S. Academy Awards (including Best Picture and Best Director) and seven BAFTA Awards. Another Indian version in Malayalam titled Ningalkkum Aakaam Kodeeshwaran debuted on 9 April 2012 with Suresh Gopi as the anchor. Other Indian remakes include Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi in Tamil, Kannadada Kotyadhipati in Kannada, and Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu in Telugu.
He was homeless and living in his car – which I later found out. After four weeks working for us, he made zero sales. We went down to fire him one Friday afternoon and he’d gone home early. We decided to do it on Monday instead.
If you enjoy this type of work, consider starting an Etsy store. One of my wife’s friends felt staying home with her two boys was great, but she missed having an artistic outlet. She researched what was popular on Etsy and started making artistic versions of people’s photos. It only took a few months for her shop to become as busy.
A Russian version of Millionaire debuted as О, счастливчик! (“Oh, lucky man!!!”) on NTV from 1 October 1999 to 28 January 2001. On 19 February 2001, the show was relaunched as Кто хочет стать миллионером? (“Who wants to become a millionaire?”), which aired on Channel One and was hosted by Maxim Galkin before 2008, and Dmitry Dibrov after that. A Dutch version of the show, titled Lotto Weekend Miljonairs, first aired on SBS 6 from 1999 to 2006 with Robert ten Brink as its host, then was moved to RTL 4, where it aired until 2008 (later to be revived in 2011) with Jeroen van der Boom hosting. A Japanese version called Quiz $ Millionaire, hosted by Monta Mino, was launched by Fuji Television on 20 April 2000; it was a regular weekly programme for its first seven years, after which it only aired in occasional specials.
