In his book, Siebold interviewed billionaire Rich DeVos, co-founder of Amway and owner of the NBA’s Orlando Magic, and billionaire entrepreneur Sam Wyly. Most, however, weren’t famous and don’t like any publicity.
There is a simple fact that many people miss: you will never grow wealthy if you spend everything you earn. Regardless of how much money you earn, you need to put some aside in savings. Having a cash cushion is nice because it helps you prepare for unexpected expenses and helps you avoid debt. But there is another reason that saving money is important – because of taxes and other factors, money saved is worth more than money earned!
Complex ideas are interesting. But they’re not useable. It’s too easy to get bogged down trying to figure out how to make them work for you. Hours spent debating, processing, planning, and strategizing easily become wasted time – and lost revenue.
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.
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.
If you’re an author, it could be Amazon rankings. If you’re a musician, it could be iTunes downloads. If you’re a programmer, it could be the number of people that use your software.

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.

Every successful business I have ever studied, has hired the help it needed. Conversely, every failed business I ever looked into, tried to do it all themselves. DIY is best kept to the home.

You might want to save up to meet your desired capital, or you might want to pool the resources together via close family members and good friends.

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.

“I didn’t want to be going up and down the street looking for customers,” Bryan said. “I needed to find a way to get online businesses as customers. Someone suggested that I needed to blog. And to blog well you need to be totally transparent or it won’t work. So I started blogging about what was really happening in the credit card industry, including all the unscrupulous practices and how merchants were being taken advantage of. Then I’d put my posts on the top social sites at the time: Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon, and sometimes the posts would get to the top of these sites and my website would get so much traffic that it would crash.
