I think the ultimate way to become a millionaire is to EARN MORE and DESIRE LESS. Earning more increases your income i.e. (taking a second job, investing your money, buying assets that provide passive income, etc.) while desiring less lessens your spending (i.e. budgeting, frugality, etc.)
For example: I get emails every day, from total strangers who want me to do things for them. Some ask me for detailed marketing advice. Others have just written a book or launched something, and ask me to write about it, because they know I have a great readership.

You might find, when speaking with millionaires — especially self-made millionaires — that there is an element of optimism and joie de vivre. Many millionaires know that if things go wrong, it is possible to find the bright side, learn from mistakes, and move on. Additionally, many millionaires know how to enjoy life as well. Many successful and happy millionaires understand that there is more to live than just amassing wealth; sometimes you need to spend time with your family and friends, eat good food and relax a little. However, the ability to find a silver lining, and to have the persistence to try again, is one of the defining traits of a millionaire.

The best mentorships are the ones where you pay your mentor. Often, the more you pay the better, because you’ll take the relationship far more seriously. You won’t solely be taking in that relationship. You won’t purely be a consumer. Instead, you’ll be invested, and as such, you’ll listen more carefully. You’ll care more. You’ll be more thoughtful and engaged. There will be higher consequences for not succeeding.
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.

But just because it isn’t easy to build a successful business doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways we can make the journey a little easier. As life and business strategy Tony Robbins often says: success leaves clues.

“Money follows momentum, not perfection. That means that you don’t really need your website perfect and that your course also doesn’t need to be perfect. I’ve re-recorded our core product six times since it’s start in May 2015. Just get started and get sales, that’s the most important part at the beginning.” – Scott Oldford
What about age-related diagnostics tests if you are not a scientist? No problem. Write a newsletter about the latest developments in that area. Make a blog about it. Or sell your subscription newsletter for a high price to every big pharmaceutical company.

You don’t have to make an airline to set up a travel-related company. There are many ways to come up with ideas that work.
5. Affiliate Advertising: If you have a blog that you want to monetize, consider integrating affiliate advertising into your site. One of the simplest ways to obtain advertising is through one of the affiliate advertising network services on the web, such as Clickbank or Commision Junction. Unlike traditional print advertising, affiliate advertising is a performance based system, meaning that you won’t earn money until your readers actually click on your links and then purchase the product. After the purchase is made, you earn a percentage of the sale. I caution you not to count on this to pay your mortgage (at least not initially); you’ll need significant traffic to your site before you can generate serious money through affiliate advertising.
“But I became a trusted source about credit card processing. So before long all these online sites that had previously had a hard time navigating this industry would start contacting me to switch their payment services.”
About one in five Russian and Hungarian Americans become millionaires perhaps due (besides their strong entrepreneurial spirit) to not being overly free with their affections. Another common way Americans fail is by throwing good money after bad for a family member (about a third of those ages 25-30 today still live at home) or friend. We are often excessive givers, whether due to some prosperity doctrine or just not being able to say no. Many of us work at jobs where we’re underappreciated. Then, 60% to 80% of divorces are initiated by women (and an amazing 90% for college graduates – or ten times the rate for college educated men) likely due to there being so much money in it (with roughly 90% of child support dollars going to women). Choose carefully or skip having a family altogether (a depressing reality these days for guys in America as per Dr. Helen Smith’s Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream – and Why It Matters, 2013).

Invest in stocks. If you’re gung-ho for individual stocks, buy stocks of the companies whose products and services you use or purchase. One of the best ways to invest in individual stocks is through an investment club; you may want to consider forming one with your friends. However, whatever way you choose to buy stocks, get really sound and good financial advice first. Do your due diligence on that financial adviser – check their reputation and record of accomplishment first.
They often share many of the same bad tendencies. They don’t listen. They micro-manage. They’re not trusting. They see employees only as pawns to help them accomplish their goals. They point fingers rather than owning their mistakes. They steal credit for the team’s accomplishments. They dress people down in front of their colleagues. The list goes on and on (sigh).

While the average human lifespan in the U.S. continues to lengthen, you might not be able to wait 79.2 years for your $500 to turn into a $1 million. In that case, you’re likely going to have to increase your risk-taking. For example, by fishing in the more speculative end of the stock market, you could double your money rapidly. Since it takes about 11 doubles to reach $1 million, you’d have to find 11 stocks that double to get you to your goal. This is a risky strategy that has a highly unlikely outcome, but it’s certainly possible.

10% or 20% savings aren’t possible: I disagree. I know happy families with kids that live with no debt, feed the family, get to work, and have a roof over their heads with only one working spouse earning less than $50k/year. Look to your large expenses first – Large house? New car every 2 or 3 years? Expensive out-of-state schools similar to in-state alternatives?
For $500 to reach $1 million, your investment would have to double about 11 times. If your investment earns a 10 percent average annual return and doubles approximately every 7.2 years, it will take about 79.2 years for your $500 to reach over $1 million. While the stock market doesn’t move in a straight line and its returns are not guaranteed, this example shows that you can indeed reach your $1 million within a single lifetime with just a long-term average return.
There are loads of people who have been able to legally make a million US dollars and above within a year from investing in different business portfolios and also from other legal means. One thing is common with such people; they are always willing to take the necessary risk involved in the business deals. The truth is that, if you are not able to take some calculated risks, you are likely not going to make a million US dollars in a year except inheriting it from a family member.
I listened to this, and watched the video interview in regards to your story. Really liked it man. My story is somewhat similar. As a junior I was one of the highest ranked tennis players in Hawaii, and was on my way to a D1 scholarship, and then maybe some pros… but I decided to take a year off to train… and in that year, totally burned myself out by overtraining and drinking too much caffeine.
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.
