If you’re going through things and you haven’t achieved your goals yet, you will … as long as you don’t give up. Someone much wiser than us once said, “Success is more about perspiration than inspiration.” We take that to mean that many, many people are inspired every single day, the ones who succeed actually do something about it.
Thank you so much for this! I was honestly about to do it, was going to the other day but decided to wait till today so could on my day off. Was a very big uplift when was watching it cause was thinking bout my kids and being debt free. But thank you again for this review!
A great many people aspire to become a millionaire, but not so many people are pushing themselves hard enough to reach that particular goal. In a world where being a billionaire is now the new target for the rich, becoming a millionaire is a real possibility for many an average Joe, and it mostly comes down to good management, sensible thinking and occasional calculated risks.
Joshua: Real estate is definitely an avenue to becoming a millionaire. I only have a primary residence at the moment, but I think that may change later in life. The beauty of real estate is cash flow, whereas stocks and other equities don’t produce much cash flow outside dividends (at most 3-5%). Good luck with your endeavors.
One of the quickest ways to get started selling online is to leverage the power of “third party” sites. E-commerce giants like Amazon, eBay, and Etsy are powerful sales and marketing platforms with a built-in prospect base. Millions of people already visit these sites to shop. And they are ready to buy — that’s why they visited the site, after all.
But if you delayed retirement by just two years, you’d hit the mark. As Chris Dardaman, head of Brightworth, a financial planning firm in Atlanta, says: “It’s not the end of the world if you can’t save as much or invest as well as you want — as long as you save and invest longer.”
Another benefit that could be worth a lot more than you think: a health savings account. To qualify for an HSA, you must sign up for a high-deductible health insurance plan. In 2016, you can contribute up to $3,350 to an individual HSA or $6,750 to a family plan. Over time, contributions to an HSA can add up because HSAs offer a triple tax advantage: Contributions are sheltered from income taxes, the money grows tax-deferred, and funds can be withdrawn tax-free in any year for medical expenses. About half of large companies match contributions to an HSA; the average employer match is about $900.
If you decide to go down the paid guest post and review road, then you should include the extra option of showcasing articles as featured posts. This allows businesses to pay extra to keep their paid article at the top of your blog page, as a featured article on your homepage, or as a ‘must read’ in your widget areas.
Now I know the question you are asking is how much money do I make for the amount of traffic that I get. I get paid every time an ad is shown on my site but you get fractions of a penny for each view. For this reason, ad dollars are measured in CPM.
The one idea this book had right was to Think Big! It is important to always be thinking bigger and better. I had a friend a while back tell me about a method to increase happiness. She said that even if you are extremely happy about everything in your life, don’t think that you are at the pinnacle of your happiness. Try to constantly bring up your happiness scale, so what was the “happiest day of your life” one day, will eventually be “just a regular day.”
Danielle and Joe Haymes of Houston found a side gig they love two years ago after searching for a place to board their two dachshunds. Danielle is a technology instructor for a local school district and Joe is a sales manager, but they decided to become dog sitters on the side after learning about DogVacay, which matches pet sitters with dog owners. The Haymeses usually take in three to four dogs at a time, depending on their schedules. In 2015, they earned about $13,000; the year before, they earned about $12,000. (Sitters set their own rates and pay 20% to DogVacay.) That income alone might not make them millionaires, but they’re planning to use it as leverage to reach a larger goal: They have saved most of the money as a down payment on their dream house in a neighborhood with a great school district.
Ruth Hedges, CEO of CrowdfundingRoadMap, a company that walks clients through the process of preparing for equity-based crowdfunding, advises that you start early. But also, she advises that you study up on the coming changes to the crowdfunding ecosystem.
“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.
We’re talking about quick and easy way you can make a little cash whenever you have a few minutes free. Enough to pay for your daily cup of Joe, or get you a few free Amazon gift cards here and there.
For Andrew, I got a high level guest post and asked if I could include him in it (they had over 200,000 subscribers) We ended up chatting on the phone and I asked him to come on my show then. (instead of emailing him over and over, give first, then ask!)
My wife reads my site and often sends me links to stories and other ideas. One day she sent me a link to an article called 8 Ways to Make a Million bucks. The article chronicles 8 different millionaires and shares a brief story about how each of them reached millionaire status.
Double check yourself, before you double wreck yourself. Make sure everything you send to a company, whether a résumé, an email or a portfolio, is good to go. Double check your grammar and wording, and for God’s sake use spell check! This is especially important when it comes to the company’s name. Don’t spell their name wrong and be sure to type it how they type it (e.g. Problogger, not Pro Blogger).
MOBE is a bad one for sure. My Millionaire Mentor is typical of a MOBE affiliate website. I agree, part of the psychology they are using is to hook a victim with a small entrance fee. Then get the professional telemarketers to work on the victim until they squeeze as much cash out of them as they can. I can only imagine the countless lives ruined by MOBE and the likes of My Millionaire Mentor.
Treat your online job seriously. If you want to succeed at earning money online, treat this new income stream seriously. That means acting professionally, responding to emails and meeting deadlines, experts say. In the world of freelancing, for example, reputation matters. If you want employers to continue to work with you and recommend your work, then maintaining a professional, reliable persona is essential to your new job as an online worker.
A mentor is somebody who has gone down the road that you want to go down and can look back and advise you on avoiding certain pitfalls. Mentorship relationships are things that takes time to develop, and because of this it should stay in place for many years.
I love like hearing all of your podcast. Right now I am only learning about business and the basics. I’m only 18 so I have a little time to look for something I’m passionate about. I’m just learning as much as I can, and I’ve already learned a lot from you! Thank you!

Another practical way to legally make a million US dollars in one year from the scratch is by launching a bestselling book. The truth is that loads of bestselling authors have been able to make well over a million US dollars from the sale of their books in just one year.
Thank you for complying this list since I have been trying to find some way to get a little extra cash. Even though you won’t make hundreds of dollars just that little extra means more enjoyment to my life. Also, so flexable for those of us who can’t have deadlines
I see we have the same mindset. I really believe I’ll be a millionaire in the future, and I’ve been working toward that for many years now. From time to time something can happen unexpected and cause you to have to spend a little more than you earn… you can’t make a habit of doing that though. This was a good article, and should help a lot of people if they will just do it.
It is possible to make good money with the internet and some people do make millions, but they work for it and they learn to leverage the power of the internet to their advantage. It takes skill, commitment and patience, but it can be done honestly.
Live proactively, not reactively. You have two choices in life: React to life as it is thrown at you, or you can go out and create your own life, one that you define and you work for. Don’t get caught in a passive life being tossed around like a boat in a hurricane. Be the hurricane.
Thank you very much for your comment Alexis. You are right, those videos with only voice over PowerPoint presentations are extremely poor. I understand, it is much easier, cheaper, and also safer to produce. First, they don’t need to rent luxury villas, privates jets, Ferraris, etc. Second, they don’t need to hire actors. And third, if the guy in the video (only the voice) says that he is a super-duper success story John Smith but never show you any photo of himself, how on Earth can you prove he is a genuine person. Most probably he is not.
Action item: Email or look on Clarity.fm for one successful person you have been wanting to get a hold of and offer to pay for his/her time… assuming the other strategies above haven’t worked for you.
Even regular books can earn you money. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents to dollars for each of your current books. It saves space on your shelves for something new, and you earn a few bucks.
