At younger ages, you still have the time to be a little more risky with your investment selections, and seek out investments that have the potential to get you that 7% return or more. If you’re looking at certificates of deposit and money-market investments, think again – you need to consider other investments such as equities to achieve returns that can outpace inflation. (To learn more, see Guide to Stock Picking Strategies.)
Yes, there are millions of strategies you can use to become a millionaire, but they can really all be combined into three buckets. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone who made millions who doesn’t fall into one of these three often-interconnected categories.
That sense of comfort is more attainable than you might think. Contrary to popular belief, inheritance played a small role in the success of most of the seven-figure club’s 10 million members. More than 80% of their wealth was earned through their jobs, small businesses, and investments. And the vast majority of millionaires attribute their investment success not to exotic instruments like hedge funds or private equity, but to tried-and-true buy-and-hold investing of basic stocks and bonds.
However you need to understand that there isn’t a magic system. There is no way to make millions overnight. Internet has a huge potential and you can earn an insanely awesome amount of money but you will need to put in the time and effort into it.
Next, consider contributing money toward a Roth IRA or traditional IRA, individual retirement accounts with different contribution limits and tax structures — which one you can use depends on your income. If you still have money left over, you can research low-cost index funds, which Warren Buffett recommends, and look into the online-investment platforms known as “robo-advisers.”
A little long winded but just stay with me… My wife and I came to the US (to a small farm community in northern CA) as an immigrant 35yrs ago with 3 young kids (1yr, 2yr, 3yr olds), no English speaking skills, just a 3rd world high school education (which is probably equivalent to an 8th grade education here), no marketable skills, and just enough money for the plane ticket here and a 4yr old car when we got here. We first stayed with my sister in law and her husband for about 4 months while my wife and I worked in the fields in the summer harvesting fruit. After scrimping and saving we found our own old and broken down rental out in a peach orchard – it was the only one we could afford that would allow us to save. We continued working in the fields each summer thereafter and, as our 3 children grew , they helped working in the fields on the weekends and summers. Each child started helping out at about the age of 5 yrs old, so we could increase our earnings. The younger ones would play in the field where we worked. The farmers didn’t care, so they let us bring our kids. Over time, we, all 5, would work in the summers harvesting fruit and getting paid for each box filled. We were the slowest among the workers and filled the fewest boxes, but we persevered summer after summer. Then about 4-5 yrs after arriving in the US I got a farm job for the off season but on days it would rain, I didn’t have any work at all, so no pay. We never had health insurance so we tried hard to stay healthy. But at least I was able to earn some more money in addition to the summer earnings. So there we were, about 4-5 yrs after arriving, working in the fields, I made minimum wage with my farm job and my young family making a combined of less than minimum wage in the summer (remember how I said we got paid piece work and filled the fewest boxes?) – essentially, one min wage job and another 1/2 min wage job. But we persevered. Our kids would start working weekends at the start of summer and miss the 1st 2 weeks of school at the start just to get that extra income before the summer came to a close each year. But we all pulled together, saved for enough of a down pmt on a small house in town so we could afford the mortgage pmt and still be able to save. We splurged here and there (eating out a few times a year, buying a few nice things and keeping them FOREVER (new TV, new car, new furniture, new appliances), new clothes for school each year (never the trendy ones though – they cost too much – the kids knew how hard it was to earn a buck so they were happy for just the new clothes even if they weren’t trendy). Needless to say, we didn’t 1) buy morning coffees, 2) go out to lunch, 3) take vacations, 4) Waste stuff only to have to buy a replacement, 4) waste money on junk food, only the nutritional basics (we just couldn’t afford to do that AND save some for when there was no work due to rain). We ran into some medical problems, needing a few surgeries that ended up costing as much as a new car each time. But we needed it, didn’t have insurance, and had the savings so we had to pay. But we still persevered. We lived simply and saved simply. We didn’t get into investing in anything other than CD’s. I couldn’t even begin to understand that stock stuff so I avoided it. This continued for over a decade. Then my kids were in high school and got jobs at fast food so they made min wage – a step up from the field work and we saved their earnings as well. They would work 2 jobs in the summer – fields during the day and fast food during the evening/night – it was tough but it was only for the summer. As time went on, our WHOLE FAMILY COMBINED, FINALLY STARTED EARNING maybe about 2/3 of what an elementary school teacher earned (my uncle was one and I remember him alone earning more than our whole family earned). But we persevered. While my kids were in high school, we saved and eventually bought a bigger and nicer house in a nicer neighborhood and eventually paid it off. I still made min wage, wife worked doing seasonal work, kids help on weekends/summers. My kids went to a local community college and drove from home each day – the traditional going away to college was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. All 3 still worked weekends fast food and both, fast food and field work, during summers. I still earned min wage and my wife worked seasonal during the summers. With a few scholarships, financial aid, we were able to pay for college. They then transferred to a nearby university, still drove each day from home to college, while maintaining the weekend/summer work. Again, with a little from scholarship, some financial aid, and working ALOT we paid for their college. Upon finishing college, all 3 moved out to where the jobs were. I still worked min wage, my wife, seasonal work. But we saved and didn’t waste it and lived simple lives. We then bought a bigger house, paid cash, in a nicer neighbor hood (with doctors, dentists, and pharmacists as neighbors) but we still live the same, no reason to change lifestyles. We also have enough for retirement but we continue to work. My neighbors don’t believe I work in the fields. I don’t care, it’s not my job to make them believe. To make a long story even longer, my WHOLE point is that you can STILL DO IT EARNING MIN WAGE! You don’t have to go as extreme as we did but you CAN STILL DO SOMETHING TO GAIN WEALTH! People who will NEVER have any wealth will only focus on excuses and come up with ALL kinds of holes and weaknesses in my story. People who WILL generate wealth will see the same story and come away encouraged to do better.
There are only 4 ways to get capital. Save it. Borrow it. Trade equity for it. Create it. The problem with three of these ways is they take a lot of time. Sometimes many, many years. Do you really want to wait, struggle, beg, and hope–when you can access capital almost immediately, by borrowing it from someone who already has plenty of it and lends money out to anyone who demonstrates they can manage it?

In business, you have to be the best at managing your time. This is the only way you will stay ahead and get the work done. However, I’m surprised how many people simply don’t know how to manage their time and this leads to a decrease in productivity. If you simply can’t get the job done, then your business won’t […]
Resist the urge to overwater your lawn. It may be hot outside, but most lawns only need about an inch of rainwater a week. If you keep track with a rain gauge, you may find that you rarely need to water. If you do pull out the hose and sprinkler, do so in the early to midmorning. Any later and the water will evaporate fast, with much of that liquid nourishment going to waste.

Thankfully, I knew what I didn’t know, so I invested heavily in those things. I’m not a big risk taker. But I do believe in calculated risk. After all, I am my best asset. My top priority is myself or my business.”
How long it takes you to reach seven figures depends on how much you start with, how much you add to your kitty and how often, and how much you earn on your investments. Over the long haul, U.S. stocks have returned an annualized 10%, including dividends. Building at that rate, it would take a bit less than 32 years to turn $50,000 into $1 million. If you invest $10,000 per year, it would take 24 years to reach the milestone. (The calculations assume that you invest in a tax-deferred account.)

While starting early can increase your likelihood of attaining millionaire status, the investments you choose play an equally important role. In the above scenario, we turned $220,000 into $1.4 million by applying an average yearly 8% return, which is something you’re more likely to get with a stock-heavy portfolio.
It’s been a few years now, the traffic has gone down a bit, plus I am busy with this and a few other sites, so it doesn’t earn as much as it used to, but BlogStash still continues to make me money month after month.
Another friend found a burger bar, which served chilli burgers. He had never tasted these before and loved the taste of the chilli sauce. So he got in touch with the supplier, and supplied them with bottles and lables, and started taking orders from restaurants world-wide, through a little (very little) marketing savvy. He started 2 years ago and is now about to be bought out for over 1.2 million.
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.

Paying more than you owe to the IRS is another mistake that could leave you short of your goal. About two-thirds of taxpayers claim the standard deduction, but millions would pay a lower tax bill if they itemized deductions, according to H&R Block’s Tax Institute. Homeowners typically benefit most from itemizing, but renters who pay high state income taxes and make large charitable contributions could also save money if they itemized. And those savings could help to grow your million-dollar kitty.
Membership sites can work a number of different ways. You can simply offer a forum. You might offer monthly video lessons. You can think of a number of different things but you must make sure that you are providing continuous value to your audience.
