close up dollarsIt doesn’t matter how poor you are now, what qualifications you have, or how intelligent you are…you CAN become a millionaire.

How do I know? Because I’ve done it myself, and if I can do it, then so can you.

Listen, when I was growing up my family didn’t have 2 nickels to rub together. Many times, all we had to eat for dinner was a bowl of gruel and some stale bread. My shoes were falling apart, and often, I would have to walk to school barefoot until I could get them patched up.

At school I was always the dumb kid in the class. Back in those days, the teacher would make me wear a pointy hat with a big letter ā€œDā€ printed on it. To this day I still don’t know what it meant.

But it doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, I decided that I was going to make something of myself. That I wasn’t going to live the rest of my life in poverty, always struggling to make ends meet and wondering where my next pair of shoes was going to come from.

In short, I rose from the ashes, triumphed against all of the odds, and became a millionaire by the age of 33. It wasn’t easy, and I had to overcome many challenges to get there, but in the end I reached my goal.

To give you some idea of my wealth, last year I was close to buying the Penthouse of Hyde Park in England but instead I decided to purchase my own Island in the Caribbean. Not bad for a guy who used to walk to school with a piece of cardboard strapped to each foot.

If you want to follow in my footsteps, then here are 3 simple steps to becoming a millionaire…

Be your own boss

It’s very hard to become a millionaire if you work for someone else. That’s why you need to become your own boss as soon as possible. Sure, it can be scary, but you never know until you try.

Make your money work for you

Most people spend all day working for their money, instead of making their money work for them. For example, when I made my first $100,000, I invested a significant portion of that into rental properties.

Ignore the haters

Once you start to see a bit of success, there will be ankle biters that come out of the woodwork and start hating on you. Pay them no mind. Ultimately, it’s your job to focus on the end prize, which is millions of dollars in your bank account. Ignore everything else.
