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.
It’s not an annoyance factor, it’s people being deceived by well thought-out scam artist who put PLENTY of time and energy into setting up false opportunities such as the My Millionaire Mentor program.
A very common misconception that many people have about blogs in general is that all blog posts have to be written. What I mean by this is that they think every blog post is going to be just a giant body of text. Some blog posts are shorter, maybe only a couple hundred words, while other blog posts can be […]
Downgrade your car and house. Could you make do with an apartment instead of a house, or have roommates instead of your own place? Could you buy a used car instead of a new one and use it more sparingly? These are all ways to save a ton of money every month.
Usually brand ambassadors are located within a city or college, but some brands have begun to allow brand ambassadors to focus solely on online ambassad-ing (sp? word? idk). Anyway, if you’re good with social media and really connect with a particular brand this could be a great option for you.

Simply put, the problem is that we dilute our goal by doing too many things that are peripheral to our core aspiration. Having a strategy, of course—even a whole project plan—from the get-go is a tried-and-true way to circumvent redundant activities. Revisions may be needed, but too much straying outside the lines may be detrimental to our progress.
Wayne Beckley uses red wine for a skin care product that started in his kitchen and turned it into a multi-million dollar line and two friends max out their credit cards to create eco-friendly cleaning products that really pays off. Then a young housewife creates a new idea for bags and makes millions. Then Tom Schlafly and Dan Kopman make millions on brewing beer.
Money equals time and when you don’t have enough time, we tend to compensate by spending more money to pay for services to fill the gap. This might be personal services or just eating out. It doesn’t matter.
The part in the post about interviews resonated with me because I’ve also been really shocked at how willing and happy most people are to be interviewed. I literally started my blog only a few weeks ago and, when I first started requesting interviews, I only had a crappy landing page up. I was shaking in my boots, utterly convinced that everyone would either ignore me or tell me to go jump. So, it was amazing to get really great feedback and almost everyone I’ve asked has agreed to be interviewed. Now, I’m not targeting millionaires like you because my blog is a food blog but rather prominent chefs, who are still crazily busy and often travel a lot, meaning juggling is needed and they can be a challenge to get a hold of.
“World class believes in using other people’s money,” he writes. “Rich people know not being solvent enough to personally afford something is not relevant. The real question is, ‘Is this worth buying, investing in, or pursuing?'”
i want to begin this online earnings. but i have no money to start up. Can you please send me list of websites to start with free registration. even if they may pay less. but sooner. i am b.tech(electrical) graduate but unemployed and poor. please guide as a how to become a millionaire grant cardone course, not every conversation with someone we don’t know qualifies for networking. It has to be relevant and done right. We have to find commonalities and make a favourable impression. There’s lots of dynamics that goes far beyond the “elevator speech.” And other times, we don’t have to unabashedly promote ourselves to be noticed and taken seriously, we just have to do remarkable work.
There isn’t a lot else to say. This book was alright. It has a lot of interesting stories- lots and lots. If you have any questions on the book don’t hesitate to ask. I would be more than happy to help anyone that wants it.
The good news is there’s a guarantee. MOBE guarantees you will make money or they will pay you $500. According to MOBE’s terms and conditions, if you complete all 21 levels and don’t make money they will pay you $500.
Most cities will have monthly networking events for landlords and property investors. Track these down, sign up, put on your best suit and go along with lots of business cards. Or you could start on LinkedIn or even Twitter to build some initial contacts.
If you don’t mind sharing your notes with other students it’s a great way to generate a little extra cash. There are sites out there that you can upload your notes to, along with your price, and then when another student downloads them you get paid.
Another seemingly free site you can make money from is Wikipedia. People who say it’s easy to edit Wikipedia have clearly never tried editing Wikipedia – it’s a pain. Thankfully it’s a pain for companies as well, so many of them are willing to pay editors to assist them in the editing process. You’ll become a bounty hunter in a way, choosing your own lines to cross and keep. If editing is something you like to do, and you’re willing to put in the work it takes to learn Wikipedia’s dispute process, roll up your sleeves and try this one out.
Unfortunately, this is a big one. A plethora of research has demonstrated that knowing our value is a major determinant of how we progress in life, and how much respect we can command form others. What’s more, lack of confidence has financial penalties—it’s shown to result in lower income flows and loss of opportunities due to fear of failure. Simply, we aren’t taken with the necessary weight to be able to influence others to invest their resources and time in us.
I have a question. I am 24 and I just started selling commercial insurance. My wife and I have about 70 k in student loans which we plan on paying back asap. I am going to have an additional 10k on top of my salary next year which I plan on saving until the end of the year and allocating it as I see fit. Everything I read says “compounding interest is the bomb” but then says “don’t save, pay down debt”. Now, I hate debt but I want to take full advantage of our young age and compounding interest. What would you recommend I do with extra 10k if we already put and extra $200 towards debt a month and we have an emegency fund in place? Fully Fund our IRA’s for the year or pay down a loan? I feel like there is no right or wrong answer. Your thoughts?
I’m 18 years old just graduated high school and I feel like college is just a waste of time because I wanna start making money now! How can I start my own business with little money and write articles?
I became a self-made millionaire by the age of 21, trading thousands of Penny Stocks – yep you read that right, penny stocks. You may have heard the story: I turned $12,415 into a cool $1.65 Million over a couple years (I’ve made millions more since then). I was featured on a popular reality TV show called Wall Street Warriors. I was featured in Trader… Read more
Hey Neil! Great post, and so approachable/doable too! I had the opportunity to go to some awesome events- actually one where you would soon be speaking, as a matter of fact! Lack of confidence held me back if I’m honest, which is weird as I know many successful people and am seen as successful myself. I have a list of people who agreed to be to interviewed/collaborate but I stupidly held back! A credibility thing I think- I was told by a media expert (paraphrased)-‘why would they give you the time of day’. What would you advise around feeling intimidated and how to overcome it? And how to structire an interview- what to ask!
I make good money thieving. I only work a few hours a night, and you can make anything from a few hundred quid to a few thousand quid. You’ve got to have a bit of bottle and be able to look after yourself. If you think you’ve got thr guts to do it? I highly recommend it, I mean it’s got to be better that spending hour after hour on a PC, making small chance, how boring is that?
Basically, you’ll have to tell a few investors about your awesome new business plan (see above) that will earn them returns of at least 20% on their equity from Day 1. A 20% return on equity is a lot, especially when the return is largely risk free. So you should have no problem raising that $1 billion of equity.
I have practiced the same debt elimination and savings techniques for years, and do so quite aggressively, though more conservatively than one of my best friends. I am 60% there in savings and my only debt is my mortgage payment. My best friend in 23 years reached 130% of his goal to become a millionaire. He began with $3000 and was more aggressive in his investing than I have been. My point is, he made it…retired last year and is living off his retirement, social security and investments to the tune of $150,000 per year. He owns two homes, bought a boat and is traveling and enjoying his life to the fullest. My goal is to follow in his footsteps. All of this takes discipline and sacrifice, but believe me it can be done by anyone, so don’t think this is a bunch of bull…anyone can do it, but you MUST make saving a life time habit. Set short term savings goals and work hard to reach them. Once you reach a short term savings goal, set your next savings goal and continue to work hard to reach it. Then repeat, repeat, etc.
A little frugality and elbow grease goes a long ways. I feel like most self-made millionaires are the hardest workers in the world. They understand the value of their earned dollar and protect its value.
Hypothetically, anyone can become a billionaire through any job, but realistically, no. Most wealthy musicians have amassed their wealth in other ways. If your dream in life is to become a billionaire, there are only a select number of jobs which could even allow a person to become one and even these jobs have next to zero odds. Instead of focusing on money, find something you love to do because having passion is the most important thing.
If you have a great deal invested in your house, remember, listed homes and other property can take anywhere from two weeks to more than a year to sell. Ask any agent who sold homes back in the 1980s, when prime interest rates were averaging over 11%! Still, property seems to be a priority. In 2005, the household savings rate averaged a meager 2.69% (the rate had been roughly declining from 13% since the 1970s). Is this because Americans are putting too much of their savings into their homes or are we just bad at saving money?
