In author Thomas C. Corley’s five-year study of self-made millionaires he found that many of them develop multiple streams of income: 65% had three streams, 45% had four streams, and 29% had five or more streams.
The Penny Hoarder has covered selling used textbooks online, but to get that cash in an hour, you need to find local buyers. If you have textbooks, try the closest college bookstore or throw a quick ad on Craigslist.
You don’t have to be lucky to create your own financial security. Some things in this life are outside your control, and you’ll doubtless encounter unexpected setbacks on your road to wealth — a car or home repair or a medical emergency that delays your savings or investing goals, for example. But you can overcome even bad luck by using your desire and self-discipline to direct the things you can control.
You don’t have to build a custom website, install complicated blogging software, or even figure out how to set up advertising systems, in order to start a blog today. At Blogger and WordPress, you can set up a blog for free in less than five minutes without knowing a thing about web design, and Blogger even automates setting up Google AdSense so you can make money off your blog by displaying ads and getting paid when people click on the ads. To make even more money from it, set up an affiliate program (see below) for books, music, etc., and insert your affiliate links whenever you refer to those items. For even more customization and options for future monetization, opt for building your blog on a custom domain with WordPress powering the backend. It’ll allow for much more scalability in the future, and is still an extremely low-cost option. You’ll have to get a lot of traffic to become a six-figure blogger, but pick an interesting topic, write well, tell all your friends, and you’re off to a good start with building a targeted audience.

Thanks Brandon. This is one of the best posts I have read in a long time. It’s exactly what I needed to hear today. You have a very thorough and accurate knack for inspiring others by presenting tried and true financial wisdom.
Rule No. 6: Say YES! He started out just connecting merchants with a credit card processor. Then OpenTable asked him to do software development when he’s never developed software before. He said YES! He got software developers, built a great product, and quadrupled his income or more. And then it put his business in a whole new stratosphere of services he offered customers. Suddenly, word of mouth was and other online companies started using Braintree’s services: Airbnb, Uber, etc. And the VCs started calling because all of their clients were saying Braintree was providing all of their payment services. It’s not that easy for startup online companies to get payment services.
Fast forward to present day, and I am now a proud millionaire. I’m learned the importance of having multiple income streams. I figured out how to implement processes that yield passive income literally while I sleep.
I think it’s possible for someone to earn a million by 25. But doing it successfully will depend on the person. You should already have a great plan to begin and a goal to achieve. Freelancing and online business are great ladder to success.
Perhaps the most powerful method of stimulating creative thinking is called “mind-storming,” or the 20-idea method. More people have become wealthy, including me, using this idea more than any other method of creative thinking ever discovered. In fact, this technique alone could enable you to gain financial independence. The method is simple. Take any problem or goal that you have and write it at the top of a sheet of paper in the form of a question. For example, if your goal is to double your income over the next 12 months, then you would write, “How can I double my income over the next 12 months?” You then discipline yourself to write at least 20 answers to that question. You can write more than 20 answers if you like, but you must use your discipline and willpower to write at least 20 answers.
Average cost per rental: Hosts can charge renters whatever rate they want. Costs depend a lot on the host’s location, though. The recommended nightly price for a private bedroom in New York City, for example, is about $100. Airbnb takes a 3% host fee.
For entrepreneurs, one good idea can provide an extraordinary amount of hope. Even though the chances of success are minimal, these ideas give people something to aspire to greater than a boring cubicle and a nagging boss. Not to mention, these ideas make some people obscenely loaded.

I think too often we look at a big number and then think it’s so big we’ll never get there. I think if people would set goals and then create a financial bridge to get there that we would have more millionaires walking around.
If we leave out the extremely limited number of people like athletes and performance artists, which may or may not be fair as their talents often have been worked on from a very early age that tends to leave lots of people that use some combination of smarts, diligence and risk minimization.
You’re an ace with a camera. You capture eye-catching images, and you know how to set the scene. You can turn that skill into online income by listing your images on stock-photography sites like Shutterstock and Adobe Stock. You receive a royalty when customers purchase the right to use your work. These sites are always looking for a variety of images, whether it’s lavish food photography or eye-catching scenes of natural beauty.
My Millionaire Mentor leads to one of the worse scams I’ve come across, MOBE. MOBE is all goodness and light on the front end, but soon after they join, a decent person will realize they are being forced to exploit others by selling the same worthless digital products for horribly inflated prices. Why the FTC has not shut MOBE down is beyond me.
Running a directory site can be a time-consuming business, but if you choose the right niche, it can be very profitable. Directory sites can be monetized by charging businesses to display their listings on your site. Listings can be paid for on a recurring monthly basis, giving you a nice regular income.
