“A [freelancing business] is not the solution to your money problems,” Luisa says. “If you’re struggling to pay your bills or are in debt, the first thing you want to do is get a job that can help you. That’s the easiest way to really help you first.”
Entrepreneurs have crossed “the risk line” from the “Time-and-Effort Economy” to the “Results Economy.” For them, there’s no guaranteed income, no one writing them a paycheck every two weeks. They live by their ability to generate opportunity by creating value for their clientele. Sometimes, they — and you — will put in a lot of time and effort and get no result. Other times, they don’t put in much time and effort and get a big result. The focus for entrepreneurs always has to be on results or there’s no revenue coming in. If you work for an entrepreneur, guess what! This is true for you, too. Though you probably have a guaranteed income, it’s important to understand that the business you work in exists inside The Results Economy, even if you’re sheltered somewhat from seeing that. I say this not to make you feel insecure, but to show you how to succeed in this environment: by maximizing your results while minimizing the time and effort it takes to get them.
Once you really focus your efforts on one method and stop jumping from one thing to another, you will soon start to see results. And once you see results, motivation will take over from there and you will just keep going. The problem for most people is that they give up usually right before they see results. They work for a few weeks or months, they don’t see results, they give up and go for another method. They repeat this with any method the come across, and never make any decent money.
To be honest I am really sick and tired of all these fake testimonials and fake products. In this My Millionaire Mentor review, let’s uncover all the secrets behind this kind of scams so we can “shut up” everyone who trying to promote it.
Once you pass the 100,000 coins mark, I recommended investing in 3-4 TOTW players between Sunday and Tuesday of any given week. To this, search for ‘Special’ players on the transfer market at a Buy It Now price of 9,400-10,500, then cherry pick any gold ones. (You can *always* resell these players for at least 11,500 coins, sometimes much more – or, if you suddenly need funds, quick sell them to the CPU for 9,900, meaning any losses are tiny.)
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.

Million-dollar math: According to Uber, the median wage for an UberX driver working at least 40 hours a week in New York City is $90,766 a year and $74,191 a year in San Francisco. That means 10 years of work in NYC could earn UberX drivers $1 million. It’d take 13.5 years in San Francisco. That’s without the cost of owning an operating a car built in, however.
While this is one of the riskier options, it is one that can really pay off. About 25% of millionaires are professionals and the other 75% are entrepreneurs. Starting a business takes hard work and courage, and it’s not for everybody. Read the stories of successful entrepreneurs to see not only the benefits of starting your own business, but also how to create, build, and run one so that it is successful and endures.
You will end up like the other “victims” that gave in to this millionaire mentor scam and trying to sell it, even if you know it is a bullshit product. Do not be the next person who try to post positive reviews about some bullshit that DO NOT even work in any way.
But now, seven years into a bull market that has seen share prices more than triple from the 2009 bottom, many pros expect less-generous returns in the future. For example, Jim Paulsen, chief strategist at Wells Capital Management, estimates that stocks will return an average of 6.5% a year for the next decade. If his projection is right, it will take 31 years to reach $1 million if you invest $10,000 per year.

If you’d like to see how close you are to becoming a millionaire, figure your own net worth by adding the value of your assets: your home, its furnishings, your cars, bank accounts and investments. After you have a sum total, subtract your liabilities, which include the balance of your mortgage and car loans, credit card balances and other outstanding debts. What’s left is your net worth. (Try this online calculator to simplify the math.)
On paper, MTTB sounds like a good deal if you join them as their affiliates – most of their products are high-ticket products, which means that you only need to sell a few products to get some very high commissions. All this for a low price of $49, and a $500 money back guarantee (or so they claim).
J.W., this question is too broad for me to answer in a way that will be likely to have a positive impact for you. In short, there are many places to earn money – it really depends on your goals, interests, skills, talents, availability, and other factors. IF you are stuck and don’t know where to start, please consider contacting a job placement agency, or your county employment agency or workforce center. They can help you with the process of creating a resume and trying to find work. Best of luck.
