If you’re a new reader to this blog, I suggest you start by reading the first few posts starting from “Making a million project – Day 1/139“.
The first spark that I got for this project was from my brother Antti in early February. Antti is starting his career as a life coach / personal trainer in his own company Itse and made me think what I want to do with my life.
This project was started on February 10, 2010. I shared the idea with my wife and closest relatives and got rather neutral feedback. Already the same evening I had written my first blog entry and set my mind on the target: “how to make a million dollars by my 30th birthday“. For the nitpicks I defined the goal so that it is in US dollars and a valuation of my personal ownership in one or more companies is fine.
The two basic things I believe are going to make this project happen:
- Entrepreneurship. Building a company with a future is the fastest way to generate value.
- Helping people. Company is only as valuable as the value it generates to its customers now and in the future. Helping people is what changed the way I think about entrepreneurship and doing business in general.
