Day 19: I am a Millionaire.

Welcome to Day 19. If you missed Day 18, here’s the link.

On Day 17 we started an activity where I gave you an open ended statement and you had to finish it with something that was true for you – good, bad or ugly – relevant to that statement.

If your just visiting out of curiosity, the statement was:

I am not a millionaire because …

Set your timer for ten minutes. (Yesterday was seven minutes. Why seven or ten Continue reading

Day 18: I am a Millionaire

Welcome to Day 18.

Yesterday I asked you to write the statement:

Some one emailed me and said, “I am really good with money so why am I writing down Continue reading

Day 17: I am a Millionaire.

Welcome to Day 17.

Yesterday I unpacked a story of two guys who were in debt, took on more debt bought property, sold the property and walked away debt free and £2.2m in cash. Lucky, right?

Day 15: I am a Millionaire

Welcome to Day 15.

Short story too good to leave out.

Brian and Gregg are in the die cast  game. They owe £80,000 on one of their machines and every month they are playing the game of draw down the debt – trying to pay it off.

When you start a business didn’t you have ideas of the lifestyle benefits that business Continue reading

Day 14: I am a Millionaire

Welcome to Day 14.

OK, over the last couple of days I’ve talked about desk searching your industry and I promised a case study.

I worked with a dentist and our desk search showed three clear categories of dentistry: emergency, orthodontic and cosmetic.

Emergency is when you are sitting in a cinema watching a movie eating popcorn and suddenly bite into something solid and crunchy and discover a filling has fallen out or Continue reading

Day 13: I am a Millionaire

OK, once again you are desk searching your industry. I received an email the other day from someone doing this programme and they found a brilliant article in becoming a millionaire that they have started to use.
