Unfortunately I was quite disappointed by this book as its suggestions center largely on outdated methods such as infomercial marketing and other brick-and-mortar concepts. There is very little information on utilizing eCommerce/the Web for making your mark.
Sure it takes time and effort to figure what opportunity is right for you, learn the market, and set up the business. And there will be plenty of trial and error as you figure things out. But at least you won’t have sunk a bunch of money into it.
Basically you offer to do something (could be something from the list above) for $5. What you then need to do is find something that you can do that takes very little to but brings value to the customer. Once the service is completed you could try to upsell the customer to a larger service that you offer.
Have you ever wondered how certain people on social media get so many followers in what it seems like such a short period of time? There are of course many different ways to do this, and It’s a lot easier if you’re a celebrity or household name.
There are many people out there using fake names and hire people to claim they make tons of money using some made up system. You can find these “actors” on sites like Fiverr.com for example. On that site and other similar ones you can hire anyone to do some acting for you for $5.
“At our conferences we deal with thousands of inventors, authors, manufacturers, and creative people bringing new products to the marketplace. Every one of them would profit tremendously by reading Dan Kennedy’s book. He describes every option for turning sound ideas into fortunes.”—Helene Blake, National Infomercial Marketing Association
Shopify is another great option if you are wanting to create your own eCommerce store. Shopify is arguably easier to set up than WooCommerce but will give you less control over your storefront and cost you more long term. However, if you have little to no experience of creating websites or using WordPress, or you are working to a very tight time schedule, then Shopify may be the perfect eCommerce platform for you.
Actually, My Millionaire Mentor sounds a lot like a product I reviewed called Digital Altitude. In fact, they sound so much alike that I had to double check to see if they were run by the same guy. They were not, so I figure one of these probably copied the other one.
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.
“It’s not that there aren’t world-class performers who punch a time clock for a paycheck, but for most this is the slowest path to prosperity, promoted as the safest,” Siebold writes. “The great ones know self-employment is the fastest road to wealth.”

For the beginners, I recommend setting up a PayPal account first before you do anything. It is the most reputable and safest way to transfer money over the web. (without giving out your bank account number to someone.) It is so easy to set up and totally worth it. Hope this is useful for someone here.
On a serious note, I like the idea of “thinking big”. For example, starting your business can certainly be the beginning of becoming a millionare. But, you really have to think bigger…like a plan to franchise the business, create a new market, etc.
This is a slightly risky strategy as you have to pay upfront for adverts with no guarantee of sales. However, advertising is a quick and easy way of reaching your target audience. And, by using affiliate programs, you don’t have to deal with any physical products yourself.
He also shares his rags to riches story of owning an old car and living in a tiny studio apartment, to now owning a huge home, several luxury cars including a Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, and a Porsche for his wife.
In the Bible there’s a verse in the book of Romans that reads “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, acceptable, perfect will of God.” When it comes to reaching millionaire status, it’s important not to be conformed to this world. The majority of this world believes that keeping up with the Joneses and showing off their success with “stuff” is the right way to achieve success, when in reality, their accumulation of depreciating assets is destroying their chance of becoming a millionaire. Don’t make that mistake and fall into the pack of “follow the leader”. Instead, pave your own road to financial freedom and show others how to follow you.
Never invest more than you are willing to lose. This is particularly important when you start. The older and more experienced you get the less risk you are likely to take, or the better you are capable of taking it.
I listened to this, and watched the video interview in regards to your story. Really liked it man. My story is somewhat similar. As a junior I was one of the highest ranked tennis players in Hawaii, and was on my way to a D1 scholarship, and then maybe some pros… but I decided to take a year off to train… and in that year, totally burned myself out by overtraining and drinking too much caffeine.
Unfortunately when someone achieves the success that Tai has and is willing to help others people naturally are skeptical. We live in a society that is full of cynical skeptical people and we also live in a world full of jealous people. A quick search on Google for Tai Lopez scam or YouTube brings up lots of results but ultimately non of these videos or websites have real evidence against Tai. The people calling him out as a scammer are either just mad at his success and jealous or more often than not they are using Tai’s exposure and following and trying to redirect people to their own programs and simply piggybacking off his exposure to make money.
With that said, the author still does a good job at giving nearly 100 case studies, describing all of the different ways the companies became successful, and stresses that in entrepreneurship, there is an even playing field. You don’t have to be a college grad to be a millionaire as an entrepreneur.
Ideally, you’ll want to start saving and investing in your 20s in order to reap the full benefits of compound interest. That being said, even if you don’t get started until your 30s, it’s still more than possible to build a million-dollar portfolio.
