Happy New Year’s Resolution. Make One Million Dollars in One Year. Monitize Yourself.

I found a blog post that I thought you might want to read. It is about “how to become rich”.  The link to the blog is posted after the content of this post under becoming a millionaire in one-year.   Basically, you monetize yourself. When you think about it, it is not hard. There are billions of people in the world and you have access to many of them via the internet. All you have to do is think really hard and come up with an idea that will get less than one percent of the people on earth to give you one dollar. Get over trying to win the lottery.  Buy the one ticket, but don’t make winning the lottery your plan. 

Monetizing yourself is when you take your talents and turn them into to money.  If you can sing, get a gig singing for money.  If you are an accountant, charge people to do their taxes.  If you have a website, place ads on it for people to click on to generate income.  If your mind is full of ideas, write a book, write a song, start a business, or monetize some other skill that you have.

My favorite rags-to-riches story, aside from Aladdin, is the success story of Brian Scudamore. Scudamore turned a $700 investment into a one-hundred-million-dollar business. His niche, people are lazy. In fact, the lazy niche works for a lot of businesses. People don’t want to cut the grass, wash the car, clean the house, leave the house to go shopping, cook; get the picture? Get rich doing the grunt work that other people don’t want to do.

The other niche for getting rich is selling something to make one-million dollars.  Here is an incomplete list of things that we sell to get rich.  This list is off the top of my head, so I’m sure you can add many items to it.  We sale:

Real Estate
Sex Toys and accessories
Information and Intellectual Property
Entertainment, music, and Artistic Creation
Banking, financial services, and financial advice

The thing about the rags-to-riches stories that I have posted below is that you can duplicate the ideas.  The successful entrepreneur did one or a combination of the following 1) Had an idea 2) Had some understanding or education that helped them expand the idea 3) There was sacrifice, rather a growth period 4) They had a niche and 5) There weren’t afraid to do things that other people who criticize them for.  The question is will you do these things to become a millionaire? Look up millionaire ideas-I’ve done it for you below- and see if any of the ideas become your niche.  You can become a millionaire.  To do so you need a plan. You need a million-dollar niche.

What will your plan be?  Looking at the success stories, one thing that stood out in one or two of the stories is that the “I became a millionaire” person went to school.  If you see this as a hurdle, then you are probably someone who cannot check this step off your list, if it is a step in your plan.  It should be.  You need to educate yourself about business and how to grow and manage a business.  Don’t see this as a hurdle.  Do you know that schools like MIT and many Big Name and not-so-big-name schools offer their programs online for free?  You will not get a degree at the end of the program, but you will have the knowledge.  Enroll in a free online program, rather review the free material, to address the knowledge component of your plan. Visit MIT’s MITOpenCourseWare page to learn more about the two-thousand courses (at least the course material) that they make available to the public.  Get started on your unofficial business degree today.  It requires no money, just your time determination, and vision.

Okay, what will you sale; services, commodities; what is going to be your niche?  You have to decide. We can do this together.  We can step on the 2019 brick road of becoming a millionaire together.  The road will be challenging.  Becoming a millionaire is possible.  I am not saying it will be easy, but I am saying that when it is over the hard work, sacrifice, and dedication would have been worth it.  I want to say upfront that you will make mistakes and have setbacks.  You should not let these things discourage you.  When you hit a roadblock dig in deep with your heels and push through, go around, or jump over.  Just keep going.  So, what are you going to sale?

I intentionally left out the option of getting rich via the stock market.  Our goal this year is to become a millionaire, not lose our money.  The failure rate for day trading is ninety-five percent.  The success rate for the uneducated entering the stock market is also bad.  If you want to try your hand with the stock-market- beast, good luck. 

Must of us will have to start out small financially.  If you must start off small, it’s okay.  Sell an item or service for money here, sell an item or service for cash there.  Starting off small is good.  Do a market analysis, determine where there is a market share for you, and go after your market share piece by piece.  Take the steps to becoming a millionaire and grow your business.

You need a timeline.  Becoming a millionaire in one-year is possible, but I suggest coming up with a five-year plan.  You can do this.  You have a plan.  You are taking courses.  You have a niche.  You will achieve your goal of becoming a millionaire in 2019. 

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master,’ (Matthew 25:23, A.D.).
