Just a Moment, Please...
Yes, I have. My 7 year old son started his first business today creating flyers, pricing, even a website all in less than two hours and it didn’t cost him anything. As I was helping him get started I was thinking of these 6 steps. We even “hustled” door to door and he made his first $5. It’s not online this time nor is it a million (yet) but Thanks Lewis!

Hmmmm… Call us cynical, but has this guy simply created a product that’s going to make him richer? And give us nothing in return…? But, we have to admit that there’s a heck of a buzz going down about what Million Dollar Business Secrets has to offer. And we wouldn’t be the successful people we are (that’s us, as well as you) if we weren’t just a little bit curious.
But you also need to know where your money is going. I recommend using some form of money tracking software to give you an idea of where your money is going. There are a number of excellent free online money management tools which make it easy to see your income, expenses, and spending patterns in one place. My favorite is a free money management tool called Personal Capital which helps you track income, spending, and your investments.
Harv and his team want you to feel confident about this program so they are even allowing you to take 30 days to go through the entire program and if you don’t 100% agree that Million Dollar Business Secrets delivers strategies that would enable you to earn a millio…n dollars in 3 years or less…they’ll refund you every penny of your investment.

Founder of the exclusive entrepreneurial coaching platform, Strategic Coach, Dan Sullivan distinguishes between those who are in the “Time-and-Effort Economy” with those who are in the “Results Economy.”
Some people would simply like to quit their jobs and make a good living. Some people would simply like to quit their jobs and make a million dollars. In that movie (the Justin Timberlake vehicle), JT says, “A million’s not cool. A BILLION is cool.”
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.
Investing in mutual fund is one of the practical ways to legally make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch. The Mutual funds is a pool of cash generated from various private investors with the same goal, interest and investment philosophy, for the sole aim of investing in stocks, bonds, assets, other securities and money market instruments.
“If you have a company where everyone has their own ways of keeping score, you’ll get incessant fighting and arguments, and they’re not even arguing about what to do,” he said. “They’re arguing about how to keep score. They’re arguing about what game we’re really playing. That’s all counterproductive.”
Earn money, spend less than you earn, save, invest, repeat the process. Embrace the Millionaire Mindset. After that it’s just a matter of time. Even if it takes years or decades, the process really is that simple. Of course, it may not seem as easy as I laid it out here, but it really is. Remember, this is not an overnight get rich quick scheme. It takes time, planning, and a little luck along the way.
If you don’t appreciate and give to your relationships, your relationships will suffer. All relationships are like bank accounts, and if one person is constantly depositing and the other person is constantly withdrawing, eventually all of the resources become depleted.
Rule No. 6: Say YES! He started out just connecting merchants with a credit card processor. Then OpenTable asked him to do software development when he’s never developed software before. He said YES! He got software developers, built a great product, and quadrupled his income or more. And then it put his business in a whole new stratosphere of services he offered customers. 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.
But you have an advantage. You don’t have to make all of these mistakes yourself to gain wisdom from them: you just have to listen to my advice. I’ve already made the mistakes so that you don’t have to make them. I encourage you to invest the time to study my lessons on running a business and avoid learning to do so the expensive way – by making mistakes.
The amazing workout was the intended outcome of our synergy. The insights for my book were unintended benefits. This can only happen when both parties are actively giving and receiving from the relationship. Where both are focusing on creating rather than consuming. Where both have the primary motivation of helping the other person succeed.
Want to become a millionaire? Making it happen in the next five years doesn’t have to be a fantasy. That’s the view of Steve Siebold, 50, author of How Rich People Think. Siebold, a self-made millionaire who consults for corporate sales teams and gives speeches across the country, says that in fact, people over 50 have the advantage when it comes to getting rich. That’s right: 50 is the new 40.
Great post! You touched upon many key points to ensure wealth building. Personally, I follow several of these steps and I believe I share several of the mentioned mindset traits. I was fortunate enough to learn about finance at a young age, so I was able to jump on retirement savings early.
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:
“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.”
One pointer — have you considered income protection insurance (or whatever the equivalent is in the US (I’m writing from the UK)). A lot of your eggs are in the ‘earning’ basket, rather than the ‘passive’ basket at present, so it may be worth protecting yourself in case the worst happens. (God forbid).
It is well documented that money in America has a strong preference for certain ethnicities. For example, about one in five of Scotch Americans become millionaires likely as they are the least free with their money (well, being scotch). A K-12 teacher saving 20% and investing wisely could have over $2 million in savings when retiring. It is always better to learn to spend less than to learn to make more — without this, earning more won’t help. Bankrupt movie stars, athletes, and business executives have become but a sad cliché. Most people get this completely backwards. One common way Americans fail is to buy too big of a home (while Warren Buffett still lives in his first middle-class home). Stanley reported (1996) the typical millionaire paid less than $400 for his most expensive suit (dressing for success seems a myth) and less than $25,000 for his or her most recent car (likely a Ford)… just $3,000 more than the average American spent. Be honest, we all could be more frugal.
What an inspirational podcast Lewis! This is my first time on your site and first podcast and the amount of knowledge that I have taken in is unbelievable. It’s funny, as I listened to the podcast, I kept saying your so right Lewis, yup your right about that too… The perfectionist in me is what is holding me back, and after your podcast, no more. Going to set a deadline date this year to roll out my product, will learn as much as I can from others and invest in myself. You have gained a lifetime follower of your work. Thank you for being awesome and talented. Enjoy Spain!
