Ask me anything – Day 132/139

Now that the project is close to its end, it’s interesting to see what questions people have on their minds regarding this blog. To do this I’ve picked some search engine terms that have been used to get to this website.

Money wanted. A lot of it and fast.

  • make money in one day
  • how to make a million dollars from nothing
  • making a million from 50,000
  • easy way to make a million
  • how to make a million fast
  • how to make 42 million
  • billion before 30

This is the most common thing people keep searching. How to make money? My answer to this question is simple: Stop wanting to make money and start doing what brings you most joy. Money will come. Even in millions.

What are the odds?

  • odds of making a million
  • do most people ever make a million

The odds for making a lot of money are indeed quite slim. To increase your odds you should step up and start doing things with potential. That potential doesn’t even need to be financial. Doing anything well enough will pay out in the end.

Could the money be saved?

  • how to save a million before 30
  • work hard to make a million
  • investments before 30

Saving any sum of money by investing is indeed possible. Whether it’s at all feasible is another question. By actively investing in the stock market you will spend your time studying numbers. Invest in things that you like and ones that you can positively affect yourself.

But what should I do then?

  • does wanting something make any difference
  • simple idea makes millions
  • the secret of success is hard work and fun

Here’s a bunch of good advice. You have to want something. You have to want something simple that others can understand and help you with. And more important than working hard towards it, you must have fun doing it – otherwise you’ll quit before soon.

Finally, there is the question of starter money.

  • getting investment money for an idea
  • how to do business with agel (sic)
  • business angels project
  • funding doesn’t grow on trees

I would consider this the type of money where wanting it helps. You don’t want it for yourself but for a bigger purpose. If you’re able to communicate that purpose, you will have no trouble getting money, whether it’s from angels or somewhere else.¬†Funding does grow on trees.

Millionaire magic – Day 61/139

There are millions of millionaires in the world and they all have their own money-making method. I was recommended to familiarize myself with the teachings of one of them, namely Brendon Burchard.

His teachings have several touch-points to what I do.

You can get an excellent overview of Burchard’s life and ideas by checking out his 90-minute Experts Academy Webinar. To summarize here are the bits and pieces that I agree with:

  • Anyone has the potential to become highly paid expert.
  • You have to choose something you’re passionate about to become good at it.
  • Show and share your passion and others will follow.
  • The money will come when you’re good enough in whatever it is that you do.

The slick 90-minute presentation has its pros but also its cons. The actual relevant content is really limited. The whole show has like 15 minutes of stuff that isn’t obvious or irrelevant. To top that off, the last 30 minutes of the his video is basically just hype-marketing his program. Needless to say, it still worked.

800 people paid $2,000 just to join his program, that’s 1.6 million dollars right there.

What should we learn from this?

At least that it doesn’t matter even if your message is 80 % rubbish. If that rubbish doesn’t scare people off, you have a chance of finding someone to follow you just for the other 20 %.

What do you think? Why is Burchard so successful in what he does? Is he ripping people off or actually creating more value than his services cost?

The international day of awesomeness – Day 29/139

To commemorate the completion of our awesome business plan, people have decided to start celebrating The International Day of Awesomeness on March 10th.

Now, isn’t this just awesome?

What is even more awesome is that the team worked long hours to get the best possible result for this milestone.

Why is this project awesome?

I can tell you this. This project is not awesome because it will bring in huge amounts of money. It is awesome because of the people that are a part of it. As it says on the project website:

No one’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome.

Why do people want to be ordinary when they could be awesome for at least one day every year? My personal experience has shown that the more awesome things are the happier it makes me to be a part of them.
