Everybody wants to become a millionaire; but nobody wants to follow the success principles. People who drives expensive cars and wear expensive suits are not millionaires, these people are usually in heavy debt. People who look rich may not actually be rich. They are just over-spenders.
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.
Investing is the best way to grow your wealth. Compound interest has been called the strongest force in the universe, and you want that force working for you! There are many ways to invest, and you can be successful as long as you make wise investment decisions and let time and compound interest work for you. Investing in tax advantaged retirement accounts such as a 401k or Roth IRA can help you grow your wealth more quickly since you won’t have the drag of taxes pulling down your investment portfolio. You can also use retirement accounts to shape your taxes both now and in the future, giving you a powerful tool to help grow your wealth.
1. E-Books: Creating e-books and special reports that customers download directly to their computers is a great first step for any aspiring e-infopreneur. Digital downloads are easy to create because all you need is an idea, the ability to turn a document into a PDF file and a service like e-junkie.com to sell the document on the internet. As opposed to producing a “real” book which requires an upfront investment for printing and production, the costs associated with digital downloads are relatively minimal. Of course, identifying a profitable topic and learning the “how-to” of producing and marketing your products for success takes both time and elbow-grease, but there are a number of books, websites and other services available on the web to help you learn.
Back then, you needed a 4-year computer science degree to understand simple things online. We didn’t have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all those things. It was foreign to us and the whole idea of making money online was wishful thinking. Only those that truly were computer nerds could make money online, and even then, it wasn’t easy.
Step five. Sell the business. You aren’t asking for a lot. The question was: “how do I make a million”. If you want to sell your business for one hundred million you have a lot of hard work in front of you. If you want to sell your business for a million, there are plenty of companies who want to break into your space, get your products and customer list, and get YOU (because you know the space intimately by this point) and be happy to give you either a million in cash or a million in stock plus pay you an ongoing salary. A million is not a lot if you have a product, customers, a unique offering, and special knowlege, and if you are selling to a much bigger company.
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.
Getting rich is not a complex process. You don’t even have to be a genius, Siebold says. It’s about creating a value proposition, and the bigger value you create for your customer, company or individual, the richer you get.
So, why not get Amazon to do all the heavy lifting for you instead? The Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) e-commerce model means you ship your inventory to their fulfillment centers, and they manage everything else after that, including customer service queries.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t have plenty of second thoughts when thinking about starting a business. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t have hard limits to your risk such as, “I will only invest a certain amount of money,” or “I will not risk my day job.”
Never invest more than you are willing to lose. This is particularly important when you start. The older and more experienced you get the less risk you are likely to take, or the better you are capable of taking it.
Excellence is its own reward, but excellence also commands higher pay–and greater respect, greater feelings of self-worth, greater fulfillment, a greater sense of achievement…all of which make you rich in non-monetary terms.
As usual with these kinds of promotions, Million Dollar Business Secrets promises a lot and gives you a bunch of reasons why you should jump on it. We, however, always advocate doing your research and not rushing into it. Even if the creator/s will close Million Dollar Business Secrets program there will be other similar, or better yet, a much better IM product to follow like my #1 recommended source. So no worries, you will not miss the opportunity to make money with this one.
Rental income is the easier choice to make here if you just want passive income. The issue is that making a million dollars from rental income would involve buying multiple properties. You’d have to scale to a level that requires you to hire people to manage your properties. The more people you hire, the less positive cash flow you have each month. You could quite easily create a full-time job for yourself, without ever meaning to.
Starting a venture capital firm is yet another practical way by which an aspiring entrepreneur can legally make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch. If you want to start a venture capital firm, you must have acquired certain skills and experiences before venturing into this line of business.
Your mindset and approach to marketing will also greatly impact your chances of business success. You don’t need a Madison Avenue background to create a powerful marketing program, but you’ve got to give it some deep thought and probably try a lot of different approaches. It’s hard, but you can do it. I have many presentations giving specific ideas on what to do and what not to do.
Now you need to come up with ways you could launch a similar service, but only charge the restaurants a 7.5% fee instead of the exorbitant 15% they’re paying right now. You could also come up with special “meal deals” that are only available to users of your fast-food delivery app.

Your mindset can and will dictate the outcome of your efforts. If you need a little bit of a mindset boost or shift then check out this short video by Jim Rohn, explaining how he became a millionaire by age 31.
I truly believe that if you want to attain the status of being a millionaire, one must make the necessary adjustments in life. The status of being a millionaire entails a lot of sacrifices but what is more realistic is that it is achievable and doable. More than anything else, be a millionaire for it takes to be one – frugal, investment conscious, earning more than what you spend, paying yourself first, diversifying your investments by not putting all your eggs in one basket alone, intuitive, resourcefull, sound knowledge in financial language and accounts, passionate, loves what you are doing, charitable, innovative, seizing initiatives in the market plays, delaying instant gratification and always never sacrificing the needs of your family in terms of financial needs and matters.

I am going to take the JUMP…. I need to find a mentor, and create a better system to generate a list. I know I have a niche and what I have can be amazing, but a little help and a mentor and I am there.

“I think it’s easy for people at many companies to become cynical, which then leads to politics, which can create a cancer that can topple even the greatest companies,” said Kathy Savitt, managing director at Perch Partners, a consulting firm.
Today I will be showing you how to become a millionaire by saving 5 dollars each day. That is right. All you need to become a millionaire is an extra 5 dollars. That is what many of us spend on coffee each day.
Rule #5. Blogging is not about money. Blogging is about trust. You don’t sell ads on your blog (rarely), you don’t get the big book deal (rarely), but you do build trust and this leads to opportunities. My own blog has made me a total of zero cents but has created millions in opportunities. In Bryan’s case it led to more inflow and his biggest early opportunity.
So do yourself a favor and get rid of your credit cards (at least until you’re out of debt). Give them to a friend or a family member to hold on to. If you have a safety deposit box, put them in there for a while. Anything works as long as your cards are out of sight and out of mind.
Along the way you will want to pay down debt, invest, look for ways to earn more money, look for ways to save money, and balance that with the rest of life. I know those are broad strokes, but each situation is different, and that is the best I can do without knowing more about your situation.
“Basically, OpenTable called me and they wanted a software solution to handle storing credit cards, handing the data to restaurants, and being compliant from a regulatory standpoint. I signed a three year deal with them that allowed me to build a team of developers and we built them a solution. We now had more services to sell to customers.”
Never forget that achieving a goal is based on creating routines. Say you want to write a 200-page book. That’s your goal. Your system to achieve that goal could be to write four pages a day; that’s your routine. Wishing and hoping won’t get you to a finished manuscript, but sticking faithfully to your routine ensures you reach your goal.
If you’re willing to put in the work and develop a hustle that’ll scale and grow, you can earn as much money as you want. And while there are a lot of ways you can make more money, my favorite way is by starting a freelance hustle.
Not only that, but when you think about your 10X goal, you’ll probably have ideas that scare you. When you do work that scares you, you cross a boundary that most people never cross. Scary work is often highly profitable and valuable work.
