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.
You should assume that the owner of this website may be an affiliate for providers of goods and services mentioned on this website, meaning that the owner may receive a referral fee when you purchase from a provider. However, rest assured that we only recommend products and services we know, trust and believe to be worthwhile. Your use of the Site is your acceptance of those terms.
Or say you want to land 100 new customers through inbound marketing. That’s your goal; your routine is to create new content, new videos, new podcasts, new white papers, etc., on whatever schedule you set. Stick to that routine and meet your deadlines, and if your content is great, you will land those new customers.
Another benefit of having a simple plan is that it creates a shared goal that will offset the tendency of people to identify themselves as part of smaller groups. Think of a football team, for example. There are many “tribes” within a team – offense and defense, linemen and receivers, running backs and defensive backs. But because the goal of the team is clear, and there’s an external scoreboard to track progress, there is a greater sense of “us” on the team than the “us and them” dynamic that can often divide colleagues in companies.
When you set a 10X goal, you’re required to think very differently about your daily behaviors. You’re required to be more serious in all aspects of your life. You’re required to eliminate limiting thinking and consumptive distractions.
For example, when I write a blog post, I work in a quiet library where I have no distractions. Because my environment facilitates quality writing, and because I knew I’d be writing that day, I write a lot. It’s easier to write 2–5 blog posts in one sitting than to try writing one post at a time.
I view having a great business plan as a super important factor in determining your likelihood of business success. In fact, much of the work that goes into a solid business plan you should already have conducted even before deciding on your area of business. This is vital for every business, so much so that I have many, many presentations relating to this topic.
You made tons of really good points, and yeah I guess for myself its just a overall view with all my expenditures and not just in a few areas but all of them…yikes I got a lotta work to do! Helpful story thank so much 🙂

You will need to find 20 other stocks that perform as well as Netflix to make US$1,000,000 within five years. It’s possible you might do that. But your time and effort might be better spent on business models that offer a more immediate return on investment
i strongly agree with u mcneri. most of the comments failed to impart the essence of becoming a millionaire. having good intentions to become a millionaire, like building foundations for the less fortunate pips, giving employment etc., aside from wanting to achieve financial freedom is a sure way with the guidance from God. FAITH and ACTION is a must… i am not there yet but with this mind, I CAN DO IT.
https://bookalicious.org/million-doll… Learn the core fundamentals of how the most successful people start their businesses fast and with very little risk in this popular online course Million Dollar Business Secrets by the successful self-made businessman, author, and multi-millionaire T Harv Eker.
Strategy goes hand in hand with business planning. Many businesses do not have a great strategy, yet a strong strategy is extremely important for increasing your chances of business success. You want to have compelling answers to questions like, “Which part of the market am I going to target?” and, “How am I going to compete in a different way than my competition?” I also have a number of presentations on strategy as well.
Siebold, a Chicago native, says most people have a lottery mentality and have been brainwashed to believe that the only chance to get rich is by picking winning numbers or playing slot machines. The rich, however, have trained themselves to expect big things to happen and earn more money. They’re bold, aggressive and fearless in their pursuit of wealth.
Listen up! We honestly thought that Million Dollar Business Secrets was simply going to be a re-hash of all the ‘same old, same old’ we’ve all heard before. But never let it be said that we’ll admit when we’re wrong. Because this time… We were! Harv has a true knack of imparting his knowledge in a way that will turn what you think you know on its head. Because hey – it’s all about working smarter, not harder (yes, we know that’s a cliché, but it’s honestly true in this case), and if you want to do that, then you need to change your way of thinking.
Not everyone is Mark Zuckerberg or Larry Page. Not everyone is going to drop out of college and create an iPhone or a time machine or a toilet that resizes itself automatically depending on who is sitting on it (although that would be pretty cool).
So I called Bryan Johnson, who started a company called Braintree. You might not have heard of Braintree but you’ve heard of their customers. They provide credit card transactions or payment services for companies like OpenTable, Uber, Airbnb, etc.
You spend six weeks renovating the property, getting it up to code, and ready for a family to move into. Your total expenses for the renovation come to $10,000 for materials, labor and organizing an open day.
Another practical way to legally earn a million US dollars in one year from the scratch is to start an e-commerce business. As an aspiring entrepreneur, starting an e-commerce business is a great way to successfully launch a business that can gain recognition on a wide scale with minimal resources. The fact that the internet is a global village makes it easier for e – commerce businesses to reach out to a wide market scope.
(Call it the offline version of affiliate marketing and you would be right). Crude oil brokerage is very lucrative, as it offers a high and fast income earning potential. In fact, it is the best opportunity for an aspiring wealth builder to start a petroleum products marketing business without capital investment.
The flipside of the above approach is you don’t need to live on Ramen noodles and beans for the next five years if you want to make a million dollars. It just means using a bit more common sense when it comes to spending. It means avoiding expensive finance deals on cars, vacationing “at home”, cooking your own meals instead of eating out, and basically behaving like an adult who doesn’t want to spend the rest of their life in debt.
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.
You make good points in this post. Millionaires have a different mindset when it comes to money. Millionaires view money as a means to generate more income not as something to be spent on self-indulgent consumption. They don’t see the money itself, but rather the income that the money can produce.
I’m a 43 yr old Mother of 3 boys, married and living pay check to pay check. I want to learn how to invest smart. I’ve been working since I was 16, I wish I was taught this in my 20s. I want to become a millionaire before I’m 60.
