Finding the next monster stock isn’t easy; if it were, we’d all be multimillionaires. But dynamic, innovative companies that have long runways for growth offer the best chances of supersized returns. Consider Acuity Brands (AYI, $200), one of North America’s top makers of lighting products, such as LED bulbs and fixtures, sensors and control systems. Sales for commercial buildings are growing steadily. Acuity is also developing digital lighting products for the “Internet of things” (the expanding web connecting everything from buildings to appliances). Analysts see sales rising 20%, to $3.3 billion, in the fiscal year that ends in August, and profits soaring 39%, to $7.50 per share.
I’ve recently just found your podcast, which led me right to this site. I have to say, this was an incredibly eye opening article. You were truthful yet compassionate about this topic. Inspirational and makes me excited for the journey! Thanks for the great post.
Offering specific online SEO services is also another online freelancer role that businesses are crying out for. If you know how to improve a website’s SEO by doing keyword research, creating content that can rank in search engines, adding metadata / schema to posts and pages, and building backlinks to a domain, to name a few tasks, then this could be a great line of work for you.
Yeah, you have a good chance of becoming a millionaire this way……WHEN you are around 70, and thats IF you start in your twenties. Who the HELL wants to live “like noone else” for 50 years, and THEN enjoy it for 5-10?? And do you really expect me to believe that a person who spends 50 years of his life being an annoying cheapskate (yeah, making your kids a christmas present out of dryer lint will teach them responsibility!) will, all of a sudden, retire and start spending lots of money and enjoying themselves??!!! Please. They lived cheap, they will retire cheap and they will DIE cheap. SO, their kids will make out on this deal, and thats a good thing, I admit.
Sure, you can work overtime or take on a second job to boost your monthly bottom line. However, the conventional “time for money” formula only goes so far, especially if it means losing precious evenings and weekends with your family.
The reason online forums are mushrooming is because they are a great money-spinner. But it is during the early stage that new forum builders will have to struggle, as they find means and ways to attract new members. But they are well
“First of all, I would like to say that the mentoring program has made all the difference in my business, and has really given me the confidence to move to the next level and beyond, and there’s no stopping me now. Beau’s coaching has been nothing short of incredible, and I greatly appreciate and value his knowledge, expertise and advice. He allows me to formulate my exit strategies, and then makes me aware if there is something I have overlooked, or didn’t think of. His confidence, support, patience, and knowledge have allowed and helped me to tackle deals that I would have missed without mentoring. Beau is an incredible mentor and I really can’t recommend the coaching program enough. If you are serious about your Real Estate business and really want to succeed, the mentoring program will allow you to reach your goals so much quicker than going it alone… I can’t begin to say how incredibly grateful I am to Ron LeGrand for all the education and techniques in Real Estate that he has taught and shared in his courses throughout the years. His insight and commitment into always providing the best for his students never ends, and extends through everyone who works with him. Even today, with the turmoil of the economy and Real Estate markets, Ron is constantly adapting and sharing with his students the latest techniques and strategies that allow them to succeed. Learning and implementing Ron’s programs, and following his advice and teachings has allowed me to change my life forever, for which I am eternally grateful… If you are reading this, then you are fortunate to have been exposed to Ron LeGrand’s teachings. I can’t recommend strongly enough for you to grasp this knowledge, and put it into action as quickly as possible. It is absolutely changing, and has afforded me the opportunity to change life for my family and I, for the better, forever. Ron’s information coupled with my mentor, Beau Ethridge, allowed me the ability to assess the deals and exit strategies, and go after the good ones (some of which I would have missed otherwise). They will get you where toy need to go as quickly as possible, as long as you are willing to put in the effort. I am so very grateful to Ron LeGrand and to Beau Ethridge for sharing their vast knowledge, teachings, and expertise; and for their support and guidance. With following and implementing Ron’s teachings, you can be just a step away from achieving your financial freedom and dreams. Thank you so very much Ron, and thank you Beau, for your guidance.” Student: Carolyn Francis Mentor: Beau Ethridge

Derek and Lauren Ross didn’t buy their home in Oak Park, Calif., because they thought it would make them rich. They bought it because the community of 14,000, about 40 miles from Los Angeles, has some of the best schools in California, plus lots of parks and open space. Nonetheless, their investment has paid off. They bought their two-story home in 2002 for about $542,000. Today it’s worth more than $800,000, Derek estimates.
