Dave Ramsey’s YouTube channel is an absolute treasure trove of free financial advice, from an actual multi-millionaire, and not just somebody who has theories on how you should manage your finances. Dave is more of a long-term investment planner, so he won’t have advice on how to become a millionaire within the next five years. But he will change how you view your income and expenditure.
Investing in the oil industry is another practical way that a serious minded aspiring entrepreneur or investor can legally make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch. There are loads of investment options that an investor who wants to make a million dollars from the oil industry can explore all you need to do is to talk to business consultants in the oil industry to give you the various investment options available to you based on your start – up capital and they will gladly do that as long as you are willing to take the risks that comes with it and also able to pay them their business fee et al. For example one of the options you have when it comes to investing in the oil industry is the sale of crude oil.
Well, the biggest ‘con’ is that you don’t think that you need to change what you’re doing when it comes to running your business. And the biggest culprits are people who’re already ‘doing OK’ in their chosen field. But hey! Who wants to simply be ‘doing OK?’ After all… If you work for yourself, you want to be set free from those 16, 18, or even 20 hour days, and have the freedom to enjoy your life along the way. Not to mention seeing the profits hit the 6-figure mark…
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.
“I really disliked my job,” he said, “and I never believed in the idea of getting a fixed wage. I had been a salesman before in the credit card processing business where I would go out and get merchants like restaurants and retailers to switch their business to the company I was selling for. So I figured I could do this but work for myself instead of another company.”
You should carefully consider a broad range of factors before committing to starting a particular business. For example, your evaluation should include factors such as the state of the market, market segments, the competition, your strengths and weaknesses, and available opportunities. These are all factors that venture capitalists demand are solidly researched and carefully evaluated before they consider investing even a nickel in a startup.
If there is one overarching theme that threads through most of the points covered in this guide, it is that most problems on teams can be solved by colleagues being up front with each other, and having respectful, frank conversations face-to-face.
Hi Brad… that’s another inspiring story and I agree with you on the credit card debt. I remember 5 years ago, I paid off my wife’s 10k credit card debt and that was really the last time we carry a balance of over $500 on our credit cards.
Specific is better than vague. Many lists of values share similar words, like excellence and integrity, but those broad notions can create problems of their own, said Michel Feaster of Usermind, a customer-engagement software firm. “The problem with values like respect and courage is that everybody interprets them differently,” she said. “They’re too ambiguous and open to interpretation. Instead of uniting us, they can create friction.”
But once he discovered what it was that makes those few elite entrepreneurs super successful, boy did he make it rock. In fact, once he learned those much needed (but so often never understood) skills, this guy went from broke to a millionaire in only 2 ½ years.
Investing in stocks can make you a millionaire, it just takes a lot longer to do it that way. That’s the same reason we didn’t cover things like mutual funds or a Roth IRA in this post. It is possible to make your fortune with a “managed savings account”, it’s just going to take 30+ years.

For a reasonable entry fee (often around a few hundred bucks), you can buy into an existing system and immediately begin building a business. And because of technology, this can be done almost entirely online and automated. Paperwork, order processing, distribution, accounting, and follow-up are almost entirely managed by the network-marketing software. This allows you to focus on building your business instead of worrying about the normal start-up headaches of a small business.

Get a good education. Although there are a number of examples of millionaires and billionaires who never completed college, statistics show a link between education and wealth. The higher your level of education, the more opportunities are unlocked for you, and the higher the chance that you will become a millionaire.
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.
One path to $1 million is to invest in a boom-or-bust field, such as oil and gas speculation. While investing at the wrong time could wipe out your entire investment, getting in at the start of a boom could result in a huge financial windfall. While you’re not likely to be able to buy any oil or gas production facilities or refineries with just $500, you can find investment partnerships where you’d be a small partial owner. As with speculative stock investments, however, you’d likely have to put all your money in different investments over and over, with all of them working out for you, an unlikely proposition.
“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
Another advantage of having some cash savings is the ability to use the money for investments or other large purchases when you come across a good deal. This could be a something like an investment, property, or just a good deal that saves you thousands of dollars on a major purchase. Take advantage of these principles and save money whenever possible.
Nice breakdown of the $1,000,000 achievement, surely is the way to view it to plan, just like running a marathon. Very well done blog post, couldn’t help myself other than to respond and say thanks as well as I got the unlimited license for Table Labs and it surely was worth it as well.
While everyone is fighting to get their hands on more Bitcoin, the smart crypto investors are quietly making serious amounts of money by other means. And none of them are remortgaging their homes to buy Bitcoin.
After having listen to module one….I feel so good and believe that I can use all my chemistry research skill globally 😀 😀 😀 I could do chemical mentoring course “how to be a successful research student” <3 <3 <3 Thanks hav 🙂 🙂 🙂* “I had a colleague who needed help sorting through her finances. She asked me to help her out, and she became my first client. Then I had another friend who started a law office and needed help, so I helped them out with all of their accounting. I’d meet with them to make sure that they were still compliant and help with their tax returns. By year five you have generated $1,000,000 in profit, and without ever having to find more than 1,000 people to purchase what you’re selling. By the way, this projection doesn’t include all the true fans who are still buying your $10 and $100 products. As any successful entrepreneur will tell you, it takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice to build a business. Most entrepreneurs experience many years of setbacks, frustration, and failure learning experiences before they achieve success. I invested $3,000 to get help writing my first book proposal from a highly successful writer. That $3,000 got me maybe 4 or 5 hours of his time. But in those 4 or 5 hours, he taught me what I needed to know to create an amazing book proposal. He provided me resources that dramatically enhanced and sped up my process. With his help, I was able to get a literary agent and eventually a multi six figure book contract. “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.” Talk, talk, talk and talk Some More! Blogs and Social Media have the biggest influence when it comes to which products and services consumers will try to trust. So, it would be wise to start talking everywhere. Strike up a discussion or join one in progress on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, blogs and forums within your niche. Education truly is a "silver bullet" for all that ails you. A college degree is called the Million Dollar Gift as it typically provides one more than a million dollars ($1.2 million on average) in additional lifetime income (of course, it should be a degree in something that's marketable). Did you know many top "for-profit" schools (Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, etc.) provide free tuition for those from families making less than $60-$75,000? Did you know a minority of students are accepted into college just on grades (good thing for me)? And, did you know there's about $16 billion in aid and that most of it is not merit based? Finally, it is said the "rich" usually plan for three generations while the "poor" only plan for the weekend. Good advice from Rich Dad Poor Dad is to build a financial plan (with a professional planner) and then do it again. A financial plan should not be about getting rich but to primarily just help identify what's important to you. Plus, it's difficult to improve what you don't track.
