Utilizing Google’s Adsense program is just one of many ways people are making money online, myself included. Looking back in my account history I’ve been using it since late 2005, and have always made a few buck here and there with it. When I say a few bucks, I mean usually under $100 per month. However, I am only utilizing it on a handful of sites, and of course in order to make money one needs visitors, and with Google Adsense one needs those visitors to view one of the inline ads that are displayed. It’s quite a simply concept, and for some Adsense publishers they do make millions of dollars online with it, with probably the most famous money maker of all being Shoemoney.
While I’m no where near the level he or others are, I do make some pretty decent money online through various means. In particular, my Adsense earnings are up near record levels for me, with this years earnings already having surpassed what I made in each year of 2007 and 2008, as well as being only a few hundred away surpassing 2009′s earnings. I’m quite impressed, and am hoping that this trend continues throughout the rest of the year.
Additionally, I mentioned that Money Really Does Grow on Trees, and this year so far my online tree and plant sales have set yet another record for me. Propagating and growing plants has been a side hobby of mine for some time now, and having helped my father start and grow his nursery business has shown me that there is money to be made in growing and selling plants. As I continue to develop and market myself in this area, I know my earnings will continue to grow as well. Who knows, maybe someday I’ll grow up and be just like him; a tree farmer! BTW, this here is a prime example of expanding on a know success, putting your own spin on it and making it a success of your own.
That’s it for now. Just thought I’d share that success is out there for anyone willing to put the time and effort into attaining it.
Everyone is looking for the easiest way to become a millionaire. However, most people don’t realize that by far the easiest way is to do what your parents have always stressed. Care to take a guess at what this might be? Believe it or not, the easiest way to become a millionaire is through simple investing.
The reality is that everyone that earns money has the same opportunity to become a millionaire through simple investing. It doesn’t take a genius to do this, and following some the simple advice of an investment manager can have your simple savings turning into millions thanks to the power of compound interest. The beauty of this is that all it takes for most people is to max out their 401k every year, stick out through thick and thin, and in about 20 to 30 years they’ll be a millionaire!
For example, a a 30-year-old making $40,000 per year can become a millionaire by the time they reach the age of 60 just by investing in their company’s 401k plan (assuming an average rate of return of 10% and company match of 50% up to 6%). Start saving at the age of 25 with these same numbers and at the age of 60 you’ll have nearly $1.5 million! Move the age back to 22 years old and adjust the retirement age to 65 and this number swells to an amazing $3.2 million dollars! (more…)
While actually becoming a millionaire is not necessarily easy, the reality is that it is not very hard either. One way to put yourself on the road to becoming a millionaire is to simply follow the habits of other millionaires. Apply these same habits to your lifestyle and I can almost guarantee that you will become rich over time.
Most people think there is this great secret on how to become a millionaire, but that’s primarily because they don’t have the millionaire mindset. Most self made millionaires were not born with this mindset either, but along the road to becoming a millionaire they developed habits that allowed them to become rich. These habits were then used by them to create multiple streams of income, allowing them to increase their net wroth very rapidly. Nothing they have done would be considered new concepts and definitely is not rocket science, but they were determined, set goals, and had the patience to realize that real wealth is created over time, not over night.
Essentially what they did was programmed their mind and willed themselves into becoming millionaires. Here’s a few millionaire habit they used: (more…)
Anyone can make an easy million dollars fast by simply investing $20. Sure $20 dollars may not sound like much, however, you can turn the $20 into a million dollars in a very short time through what is known as doubling. In the investment world everyone has heard of compounding and I’m sure you have too, so it’s easy to see how just a small $20 bill can be the seed needed to grow your money to astronomical proportions. Whether through compound interest or doubling, once your money starts earning compounding you will see just how fast you make a millions dollars.
Obviously speed of return on investment is important, however, the old adage “good things come to those who wait” applies here as well. Lets look at our initial $20 investment. Think of how many possible ways there are to double it, turning your $20 into $40. Now using those same thoughts, if you can apply that and double your money each time for 17 times you would have about $1.3 million dollars after your 17th doubling.
Pretty impressive, isn’t it. However, in this case doubling your investment once you get into the higher numbers does become a bit harder, especially when trying to figure out how to double $655, 360. Doubling the smaller numbers is easy, especially considering you could buy something for $20 and quite possibly re-sell it for $40. The same holds true for some of the other numbers, however again the higher step you are in the process the slower it becomes. This is were the process slows down, and quite possibly the situation turns into a multiple step process in order to reach the next level.
No matter what the case, you can make easy millions just by using one $20 bill. Many will laugh at this, but the reality is that this method is very doable. All it takes is patience, dedication, and the will to succeed. Taking action with this million dollar idea or any other money making method is all that is needed to achieve riches beyond your wildest imagination. If you think I’m kidding I’m not…just ask any millionaire how they achieved their success and they’ll start out by saying something along the lines of “Well it really was quite simple, and here’s how I did it…”.
Have you lost sleep at night because you dream of having wealth and riches beyond your imagination? Do you find yourself sitting around thinking how nice it would be to afford the car of your dreams or maybe a mansion next to a famous person? Well my friend I can tell you that these dreams you are having are indeed a possibility and all it takes is for you to be a person of action to make yourself rich!
Besides being a person of action, the majority of wealthy people were willing to take risks while on their journey to becoming who they are today. Many also failed numerous times but never gave up their dream before finally finding the right combination to make them successful. If you desire to continue your 9-5 job and take no risks, I’m afraid you will never realize your dreams of making yourself rich. For one to truly become wealthy one must be willing to accept risk, accept the chances of failure, but most importantly trust in one’s self. Once these things are accomplished you will find your road to riches a much easier path.
Now here’s the great part about all this…it does not take tons of money to make millions of dollars. Even if you are in a position where you have little to no money, there are still ways to stop dreaming and make yourself rich. As I mentioned before, many millionaires were bankrupt and had nothing before realizing their dreams, and there are plenty of ways to raise the money needed to start your money making journey.
For many, eBay or Craigslist are great places to sell unused or unwanted items quickly to raise some quick and easy start-up cash. If that is not enough, perhaps taking some overtime at work or even a second, part-time job are some additional ways to earn the money needed to get started. Either way, once you have sufficient funds to get started you will be well on your way to make yourself rich. It really comes down to staying motivated, stop dreaming and taking actions to become successful!
Would you like to a million dollars in 12 months? I can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t. Can it be achieved? It most certainly can. Many others before you have succeeded in making a million dollars in 12 months, and if you make it your goal right now and vow to adhere to it, you can have one million dollars in your pocket one year from today.
Now you ask just how do I make one million dollars in 12 months?

To put it into further perspective, you would need to consistently make one average $19,230.77 every week for the next 52 weeks, which again is more money than many families in America would make in their lifetime! (more…)

Did you know that reducing this wasteful spending could ensure that you have $1 million dollars at retirement? Just a few simple lifestyle changes could make all the difference to how well you live out your golden years.
Believe it or not every single financial decision you make on a day by day basis directly impacts what your financial status will be upon retirement. I for one have known this fact but have been blinded by it until recently, and now I’m trying my hardest to instill this fact onto my children so that they hopefully avoid the same mistake. As stated before, unfortunately for most their decisions have them struggling in retirement or even worse working until the day they die.
Imagine this scenario for a moment: you are married and your wife decides she wants to take an extravagant vacation to Hawaii that will cost around $5000. Both of you have never been to Hawaii and would love more than anything you to go, especially since you need a well needed vacation. However, let’s consider the true financial impact from a retirement standpoint. (more…)

One million dollars. Once again that magical number that says you’ve made it in life.
But did you know that you don’t have to work your whole life to achieve such a monumental financial achievement? Yes, you heard correctly: you DON’T have to work your whole saving here and there to retire as a millionaire. Believe it or not you can have all your savings completed before you are twenty one and still retire a millionaire.
Here’s how this easy yet brilliant plan to retire a millionaire works. It all starts while you are young, vibrant and full of energy. You are barely sixteen years old and your parents have allowed you to work part time for spending money and everyday expenses.
Now let’s say that every year that you work you take home about $7500. Out of the money that you earned you invest $2000 of it into a Roth IRA. By investing in a Roth IRA your money will continue to grow tax free as long as you have the account open. Once you reach the ripe old age of 59 1/2 you can withdraw your money tax free and enjoy your retirement.
Now here comes the true secret to retiring a millionaire. Money when invested is compounded annually and is usually figured as an average percent over the last twelve months. Lets say that the Roth IRA you have invested in returns you an average of 10.7% per year. After working just four years part time and investing a total of $8000 of your hard earned money your total investment will be worth about $9400. If from here on out you put NO additional funds into the Roth IRA and simply let compound interest do the work for you, the account will grow to: (more…)
