How To Become a Millionaire

Rise up and be a fierce, independent woman with an empire of your own.


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.

2. Gain Working Knowledge

Master your craft, gain familiarity and know exactly how all facets of your project functions. So, if you want to sell hair-products, you better have knowledge of its manufacturing, sales and product development. Work for a company that will compete with the company you plan on building. See how they work from the inside-out.

3. Be Friends With Time

Get involved in a business or project that does not go against the overall working trends. In this age of information technology, devoting your time and energy into a typewriter manufacturing business is most likely an unproductive pursuit.

    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!

    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.
