Most people in your life would rather tell you what you want to hear – not what you need to hear. They don’t want to hurt your feelings or get you angry, so they’ll often hold back from saying what they really think.
Take care of your health. Making money and making good decisions that create more money in your life require that you are in good shape. Keep fit, eat well, and take good care of your body. It is your health that will provide you with the energy and resources needed to keep going on the commitment to becoming a millionaire.
In this video Stefan shares in 2 minutes how to make a million dollars online. This is one of the most important strategies that can be applied to ANY business that will allow you to make money online.
An income goal of five years is not so close that it terrifies you into inaction, but also not so far away that you can conveniently ignore it. Setting a time frame around your goal makes you accountable to it, and that’s the only way to achieve real success in anything you do.
Rule No. 2: Pick a boring business. Everyone is always on the lookout for “the next big thing.” The next big thing is finding rare earth minerals on Mars. That’s HARD WORK. Don’t do it! Bryan picked a business that every merchant in the world needs and he also knew that it was an exploding business because of all the online stores that were opening up. You don’t have to come up with the new, new thing. Just do the old, old thing slightly better than everyone else. And when you are nimble and smaller than the behemoths that are stuck with bureaucracy, you can often offer better sales and better service, and higher touch to your customers. Customers will switch to you.
What you never hear about is the wave of millionaires created because of the property market crash. They bought properties for cents on the dollar, and now own multi-million dollar real estate empires.
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 I feel antiquated and out-of-date.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.

“Most of these millionaires that I’ve interviewed are normal people like you, me and everybody else,” he says. “They’re not Rhodes Scholars. They’re average people who changed their mindset and went to work. Most are not living in giant mansions. They’re living quietly. They’re our neighbors, but they have millions of dollars in the bank. They never worry about money and never have to worry about it again.”
Set goals, create routines that support those goals, and then ruthlessly track your progress. Fix what doesn’t work. Improve and repeat what does work. Refine and revise and adapt and work hard every day to be better than you were yesterday.
Another practical way that an aspiring entrepreneur can legally make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch is to become a football scout / agent. Although you might have to work pretty hard to discover talented footballers and also to market them to topflight football clubs in Europe like Real Madrid FC, FC Barcelona, Arsenal FC, PSG, Manchester United FC, Chelsea FC and Bayern Munich FC et al. The truth is that if you are lucky to get these teams to sign a handful of young football talents from you, you are likely going to earn at least a million US dollars from the deals.
As you would expect, the stories are as diverse as the people they highlight. Several people started their own business, one man made his millions in real estate, a firefighter cashed in his pension, and another made his millions working an $11 an hour job (and making wise money decisions along the way).
Financially successful people do at least one thing better than just about everyone around them. (Of course it helps if you pick something to be great at that the world also values–and will pay for.)

What do your friends say you’re great at? I love this question. Not only can it be a nice little ego boost — but it can also be incredibly revealing. Examples: Workout routines, relationship advice, great fashion sense, etc.

Harris, I think it depends on several factors. First, I recommend having a well established emergency fund that will be enough to cover several months living expenses. This will help you cover any unexpected expenses and avoid taking out additional debt. Next consider other short/medium term goals. For example, are you saving to buy a house, do you need to replace your car in the next two or three years, etc. Finally, consider the interest rates of your student loans and what you may be able to earn in an IRA and decide which option is best for your needs. Investing for retirement now could be a huge benefit for you and your wife when you reach retirement age, but eliminating debt increases cash flow and gives you peace of mind. Both options are solid. Best of luck.
If you ask enough top executives about their leadership style, you’re likely to hear a number of them say, “I hire the best people and get out of their way.” It’s a good line that makes sense at a certain level. Hiring the right people is the most important part of building a strong team, of course, and delegating to give people more autonomy is a powerful motivator.
In most cases, the commission generated is shared with other real estate brokers or agents who played their parts in ensuring that the property are sold or rented out as the case may be. For example, if you are lucky to sell a property that is worth over 20 million US dollars, you are likely going to earn at least a million US dollar from the deal / deals based on a 5 percent commission rate.
Rule #6. Say YES! He started out just connecting merchants with a credit card processor. Then OpenTable asked him to do software development even though he’s never developed software before. He said YES! He got software developers, built a great product, and at least quadrupled his income. His decision to say YES! elevated his business to a whole new level, not just in the services he offered customers but in how they perceived him. Suddenly, word of mouth was spreading and other online companies started using Braintree’s services: Airbnb, Uber, etc. And the VCs started calling because all of their clients were saying Braintree was providing all of their payment services. It’s not that easy for startup online companies to get payment services.
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.
So, what Million Dollar Business Secrets is, is a clear cut learning program that gives you information and tips on how to not simply be an entrepreneur, but to understand the differences between running your own business and actually managing it.
A traditional way to do this is to get your MBA from a prestigious school and then get a fast-track job that takes you up the corporate ladder. An MBA will teach you about the basics of accounting and how the financial numbers relate to your systems, but having an MBA doesn’t mean you’re competent to run a business. You’ll need to spend 10 to 15 years in a company to learn all the different aspects of business. Then, you should plan on leaving to start your own company. Working for a successful major corporation is like being paid by your mentor.
