To give you some idea as to how lucrative a long term investment strategy is when it comes to cryptocurrency, I bought 100 Litecoin at $5.89 back in 2014. It’s now trading around $270 each. That means I have $27k worth of Litecoins from an initial investment of $580.
Almost every small business would like to grow its revenues, but most are only working with teams of a few employees. While some marketing and growth tactics that work well for large corporations can be applied to small businesses, many cannot, and growing a new business from scratch is even more unique.
For people earning $60,000 per year, $500 per month is only 10 percent of their paycheck. Still, it can be difficult to find that financial flexibility on a monthly basis without a budget in place. Think about how much money you spend each month on different expenses and prioritize that spending. Groceries and mortgage payments are top priorities. Most everything else, including savings, is a matter of personal preference. Going out with friends several times a week, taking an Uber instead of driving and even buying name-brand products are all small decisions that can add up over time and derail your dreams to become a millionaire.
Only one in every 400 U.S. households makes more than $1 million a year. But one out of every 15 U.S. households has at least $1 million in assets. (This measure includes things like stocks, bonds and investment properties, but it doesn’t count equity in the home you live in.)

I need to be more regular in my donating / giving so I wanted to tie a specific dollar amount that I’m looking to accomplish. I know it’s kind of odd that I’m including this goal in a blog post as most people are pretty private about what they give to charity, but it’s on my white board so I guess it’s on the blog post lol. Throughout this year I will occasionally release products or software and state in the sales material that (for example) the first $5,000 purchased worth of this software will be going directly to Charity Water. Continuing with charity water as an example, after I would reach that sales figure I’d then make a donation to a Charity Water campaign as well just to prove that I was actually making the donations. You’d have to be pretty evil to https://youtu.be/vMXv3VFAnEk you were going to donate money and not actually do it though.
Spend your tax refund wisely. In 2007, the average American tax refund was $2,733. That’s a lot of money! Can you use that money to pay off debts or create an emergency fund instead of blowing it on something that will lose half its value the second you buy it? If you invest nearly $3,000 wisely, it could be worth ten times that much in as many years.
After one interview with one of the millionaires I met through HARO, we chatted for hours. I mentioned I had created a mastermind group, and he said he was looking for one. Once my group had an opening, we invited him and he has been part of our group for years now.
Have a frugal start up. There is much talk about “looking the part”. There isn’t much point looking the part if it cost an arm and a leg to get it and you lack clients to pay for it. Get yourself a fabulous suit that is worn every day and makes you feel confident and ready to meet people but be very careful with your office fit-out and other business elements. Here are some ideas to help you initially:
What do you already pay for? We already pay people to do a lot of different things. Can you turn one of those things into your own online business? Examples: Clean your home, walk your pet, cook you meals, etc.
So let’s talk about savings. Ideally, you should be saving 10% of your salary each year for retirement, regardless of how much you earn. If we apply simple math, 10% of $56,516 is $5,651 a year, and if you have a 401(k), you can contribute that much (or more) in pre-tax dollars.
I recently started a new blog called Project DB9 and am literally trying every online way to make money I can get my hands on. I found this blog while doing research for some new ideas and signed up for Mechanical Turk. It’s tedious but I will give it a shot for a week or so and post the results here for everyone to see.

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.
Swagbucks – Swagbucks is great for earning some extra cash. You can do a variety of things to make money, from taking surveys to using their search engine.
