How To Become a Millionaire

By  

Forget marriage. There are ways to gain millions other than marrying the filthy rich old man. Besides, weddings and divorces are costly processes. And then there’s the issue of your self-respect. Oh yeah, that. The answer? Rise up and be a fierce, independent woman with an empire of your own.

How To Become a Millionaire

1. Cultivate a Need

By need, we mean business. Get involved in a business or project that you are passionate about. Look at it as a necessity, an essential element of life that needs to be developed and sustained. The thing about choosing the project that you are most passionate about is that when you enjoy your work, you’ll devote your time and energy into it without feeling overworked. Your chosen business should be something that you are so passionate about doing that you get up in the morning needing to get to work.

    Oh, that’s disgusting. Marrying a wealthy man and then getting a divorce. You have to work hard for you to be rich. Don’t use the poor dirty old man. Lol

    Don’t overspend. That’s the best way for you to save. It’s not bad to buy something that you really like but think of your future first.

    You should start saving now. Ditch your monthly shopping, and start investing in a business.

    I want to become a millionaire someday. That’s one of my childhood dreams. Yay!

  5. Mildred Davis

    A true millionaire doesn’t live the millionaire’s life. They treat their money as their baby. They hate overspending their money.

    I totally agree with the number 8. Look at Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. They are filthy rich, but I never see them wearing the brand of their shirt.

    That’s what we are doing. During my inventory, I divide the profit into three. The half of it will get re-invested so that the business will expand, and the other half will be the savings and expenses.

    My dad keeps on telling me that if a client asks me about a project, I should accept it no matter how hard the project is.

    Of course, having a business doesn’t mean you don’t have to work. Promote your business, if you can’t afford TV Ads, you can start with your family and friends.

    Before starting a business, ensure that you are ready enough to put one. Business has its ups and down, and it’s like betting in a gambling. You’ll never know what will happen next.

    Thanks, Urbanette. I’m planning to quit my job, and I’m planning to put some coffee shop here in NYC. This article is a huge help to me.

    The best teacher is having an experience. Before setting up a business, for example, a restauran.t. It’s an advantage if you have an experience working in a restaurant.

    Having a business is not a joke. You’ll invest money in here, that is why it’s better for you to have some knowledge about the business that you’re going to set up.

  14. Angelo Henderso

    It’s nice to wake up in the morning, and you’re not being forced to work. That’s the good thing about having a business.

  15. Selli Coaze

    I ditched my old job to start my own business. It’s not easy to put up a business, but the point is, I’m happy with what I’m doing right now.

    There’s no shortcut in becoming successful. It’s better to work hard for what you want than to get it in a wrong way.

    The hard wok is the key to become a millionaire. If you want to become a millionaire, you should work for it.

  18. Yeah… Forget marriage with a "wealthy, old man" to get rich. I personally believe that getting rich requires research, commitment and hard work. Due to my very busy schedule, I can't start a business (well, because of my belief that doing business need "full commitment"). So what I do is invest my money. And I agree with the article author, "don't put all your eggs in one basket" 🙂

    I totally agree with “Don’t Live the Millionaire Lifestyle.” Most of the time, when we are earning more, we tend to spend more. For me, discipline (self-discipline) specifically when it comes to spending is the secret to being a millionaire!

    Investing really helps! As for starting a business, I believe that the business you’ll start should be something that you love doing (that is your hobby). For instance, you cannot (or it’s not advisable) to start a baking (or cooking business) if you don’t want to eat. This is just my opinion (and observation)!

  21. Saving is definitely an important part of building wealth, especially if the alternative is to spend it on luxury goods that won't give any economic return in the long run.

  22. I think the important way to become a millionaire is by SAVING. Which might be a very hard thing for people. It's even hard for people who are born into wealth. Spending lots of money on unnecessary things can be the downfall to your millions. I definitely agree that people should invest in the stock market but for new comers in stock, they shouldn't invest too much in case of loss. Things happen, stock market may crash, stocks may go down. So it is some of a risk. Do your research in companies first and watch them for sometime before going forth.

    Saving even just a little from your salary every month will help you heaps. In about 20 years, you’ll be  millionaire. 😀
