Rules #3. Get a customer! This is probably the most important rule for any entrepreneur. People want to find and take the “magical path”: get VC money, quit their jobs, build a product, and then have millions in customers. It NEVER works like that.
Having a savings account is one of the many ways where you can set your money up to work for you. Your initial deposit of money grows whether you make additional deposits by interest. Learn the different types of accounts, including accounts like IRAs.
Wealth and success begin in the mind. To help you adopt a wealthy mindset more quickly and easily, we’ve crafted a set of affirmations specifically to support what you learn in Million Dollar Business Secrets.
You should also start an account exclusively for your emergency savings fund. Most banks allow you to create a sub-savings account along with your normal savings account. (You can even name them too!) So create one for your emergency fund.
All these things happen on auto-pilot, however, you need to do some initial ground work to put systems in place to make this happen. It doesn’t just happen. You need what is known as an online pay gate. This is a fancy word used to say that people need to be able to go to a check-out page where they can enter their credit card information. There are various tried and tested companies I use to make sure this happens seamlessly.
5. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, admitted to the bar despite not ever holding a legal degree, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his volunteer war service, shot himself to death (many studies have connected insanity with success – how come no one recommends that path?!?). Alas, 120 GWII veterans kill themselves every week. Other ways soldiers self-destruct include depression, isolation, and chronic anger.

When we feel a little blue or unhappy there is always a good reason for that, which in most of the cases the true reason dwells is in not having enough money or being unhappy with a current job, or live in the place where you don’t want to live.
“When my husband and I were first married, we were really disciplined about getting out of debt and saving,” Shannon says. “We paid off all of our debt out of college. We paid off all of our car debt. And now we’re paying off our house.”
When it comes to self-improvement, investing 10% of your income on yourself will yield a 100X or more return on that investment. For every dollar you spend on your education, skills, and relationships, you’ll get at least 100 dollars back in returns.
So, if you are a talented writer and you are looking for practical ways to make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch, then one of your best options is to launch a bestselling book. It is important to clearly state that you would need a bit of luck to be able to sell at least a million copies of your book in one year.
I advocate for the Tim Ferris, multiple income stream strategy. It’s important to have a diversified portfolio and automatic income streams that supplement your basic income earned through work. Selecting the best investment and income streams requires a person do the research, but very basic strategies can be employed that grow the money nest. I think the article is right to say it’s better to earn rather than save more than you spend, because saving money can depend on very specific contexts, while earning money tends to be more predictive. Good article.
Love the article Ryan. I love thinking about what my story is going to be. I always try to remind myself of why I want it, and that it has a time frame. All I need to do is decide how I’m going to do the next step towards getting there.
Million Dollar Business Secrets reveals the critical strategies that allow a handful of elite business owners to get incredibly wealthy – while most business owners (like you) are stuck toiling away in self-created jobs.
Rule #7. Customer Service. You can treat each customer, new and old, like a real human being. “We intuitively sort of knew what we didn’t like in customer service everywhere else: automated calling trees, slow response times, poor problem solving, etc. So we made sure there was as little friction as possible between the customer contacting us and actually getting their problem solved.” When you are a small business, there’s no excuse for having poor customer service. Your best new customers are your old customers, and the best way to touch your old customers is to provide quick help when they need it. Customer services is the most reliable touch point to keep selling your service to them.

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.
Successful business owners think of the people, whose help they will need, in advance. They deliberately, regularly make connections with key people. Then, months or years later, if they need their advice or help, it’s there. I know of no exceptions to this rule.
Don’t neglect the mundane but essential parts of running a business, like timesheets, tax, petty cash, invoicing, etc. Do them with clockwork regularity or employ someone who is capable to deal with these things.
Of course you could, Reddit is at the moment considering an IPO, Reddit is a company that offers no real service but is mainly a website, they are online however it is the 8th most popular website in the world being valued at around $1.8bn, so if you had less than a 1% stake then you would have made well over 1 Million dollars online!

Well, the biggest ‘con’ is that you don’t think that you need to change what you’re doing when it comes to running your business. And the biggest culprits are people who’re already ‘doing OK’ in their chosen field. But hey! Who wants to simply be ‘doing OK?’ After all… If you work for yourself, you want to be set free from those 16, 18, or even 20 hour days, and have the freedom to enjoy your life along the way. Not to mention seeing the profits hit the 6-figure mark…
The long-term average annual return of the U.S. stock market is about 10 percent per year. Using a handy statistical tool known as the “Rule of 72,” you can calculate that a 10 percent annual return will double your investment just about every 7.2 years. So, can this power of compounding returns turn $500 into $1 million? If you’ve got the time, it certainly can.
Have a frugal start up. There is much talk about “looking the part”. There isn’t much point looking the part if it cost an arm and a leg to get it and you lack clients to pay for it. Get yourself a fabulous suit that is worn every day and makes you feel confident and ready to meet people but be very careful with your office fit-out and other business elements. Here are some ideas to help you initially:
First, I would start by suggesting you open two checking accounts and two savings accounts. This didn’t use to be possible in the U.S. (with a single SSN) but now most banks allows it. I would have your paychecks deposited into your first savings account. Then, automatic transfers can put set amounts into your second savings account, which we will call your Opportunity Account (for your 20% savings), and your two checking accounts. One checking account is for periodic expenses such as your mortgage, debt payments, etc. (automatically paid). This is you Bill Account. The other checking account is for discretionary expenses (ones you can vary) such as gas, food, and entertainment. This is your Fun Account. Your goal each month is to spend every dollar from your Fun Account. You can freely do this knowing your bills and savings are taken care of. If an unexpected bill appears, take the money from your Opportunity Account. You’ll just unbalance your budget if you take it from anywhere else.
The key to this course is that it shows you how to think in a way that most business owners fail to grasp. And it’s this difference that not only means that you’re business is likely to survive in the current (difficult) economic climate – but to truly thrive and bring you in the uber-high profits you deserve.
Do you want to own your own business? Often, when people are trained to be employees or self-employed, E’s and S’s on the left side of the CASHFLOW Quadrant, they find it hard to transition to the right side of the quadrant, to become a Business Owner (B) and Investor (I).
