Day 13

Follow through is the order of the day for today. I know that for me web based activities are easy to do. It is the activities off the web that will take that extra bit of motivation to make them happen. I have to be honest today I could have gotten out and done some business prospecting, but allowed the rain to serve as an excuse not to do so.

I told you that I would be honest with you about my activities on this journey toward $1,000,000 in 365 days. So in the light of full disclosure I was downright lazy. You all as members with me on this trek toward our common goal have the the right to hold me responsible when I get off track. With that said I have to set some goals for tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will definitely get out and do some prospecting for new customers. The groundwork has already been laid. I have business cards, contracting agreements, price sheets, etc… The only things missing are paying customers. That is one universal truth of business and of any type of financial achievement. No one becomes successful unless other people pay.

I also have to work on the blog layout itself. You will soon see some ads added to the layout of the blog. Not so many that they overshadow the message or the journey, but enough to create an additional revenue stream.

Day 12

You may have noticed that the layout of the page has changed again. We still have the daily updates on progress toward our goal of making $1,000,000 in 365 days. I just wanted the goal to be the first thing that site visitors see. Yesterday I mentioned the business training class that I went to.

Today was dedicated to preparing for the cleaning business. I got the cleaning service site created. I also did some SEO work on that site and this site as well. I am trusting that old saying that slow and steady wins the race. So far we have been taking steps in the right direction, but to this point there has been no new income generated. There will be other changes to this site to stimulate income growth as well.

I will be open with you about what does work and what does not. I am still dedicated to accomplishing our goal of earning $1,000,000 in 365 days. We still have money left over from our original seed money. We want the momentum to be created by efforts that we thought of here and acted upon. We have even added a couple of posts about marrying into the money and gave information on where to meet millionaires, and how to prepare yourself to be the mate that they may be searching for.

For those of you stopping by our blog for the first time. Do you have what it takes to accept our challenge?

Day 11

Today was another productive day in our journey toward $1,000,000 in 365 days. I attended another business training class, where they discussed the things that you and your business need to know to be successful. The instructor also discussed retirement programs. He once again stated something most of us have heard, but seldom follow. The statement that “most people do not plan to fail, they simple fail to plan.

The discussion touched on the subject of stocks, and how Berkshire Hathaway “A” stock is one of the most expensive in the world currently over $100,000 a share. Berkshire Hathaway’s “B” stock is referred to by Warren Buffet as their everyman stock. I have seen the “B” stock price over $2000 today it was around $76. With that bit of information in hand, first chance I get I am buying some Berkshire Hathaway “B” stock.

We also talked about the Rule of 72, which is a proven mathematical formula that states if you divide 72 by the interest rate, that it will equal the number of years that it will take to double your money. If you try using the formula based on the interest rate that banks are offering right now, your calculator will laugh at you. If you want to rub shoulders with some of the richest people on the planet, then buy yourself at least one share of Berkshire Hathaway stock and you will be invited to the annual shareholders meeting where you just may be able to find you a millionaire to marrry, if that is your goal.

Day 10

Happy Father’s Day!

Today was another good day. A road trip with my son, and a phone call from my daughter. Then time spent with my Mom, sisters, neices and nephews. Now to top it off pizza while I write my blog post. Today is truly a good day.

I also worked on SEO for the blog today. I will be adding the details later so that once you get your blog going, you will be able to get it to rank high in the search engines and drive lots of targeted traffic to your site.

It is going to be a short post today so that I can enjoy my day.

Day 9

Today was an extremely productive day. I went to a business seminar about How to Start and Run a Small Business. It was probably the best use of my time in months. The presenter was an MBA, CPA, CPA firm founder and college professor. He was also a very good presenter. Even though the information given was a teaser to get you to commit to a course/mentoring program, it was time well spent.

They covered things that every business owner needs to know about business in general, and about your business in particular. There were also the standard statistics about business success and failure rates, something that I found extremely interesting is that more than 80% of the businesses that fail have no written business plan.

We have our written and stated goal of earning $1,000,000 in 365 days, but we still do not have a clearly defined plan on how to accomplish that goal. Well that written plan is in the works and will be provided to site visitors who opt-in using he link on the right.

There were some “Right Now” benefits that I learned and can apply from the seminar such as immediate tax savings related to having a home based business. Things such as being able to write off a portion of my mortgage expense due to having a home based business, writeoffs related to business related mileage, business related travel expenses (example, the IRS is having a Tax seminar in Las Vegas) so travel expense to and from plus lodging can be deducted and you can still enjoy yourself when you are not at the seminar.

The things that I learned today can be applied to all of us to reduce our tax burden and increase the amount of money we are able to keep on a yearly basis. I will keep you updated and you keep pushing toward the goal.

Day 8

Today I am able to spend quality time with my little man. I really enjoy this time when your child is young, and allows you the opportunity to be their hero. The joy of closeness, having them climb on you and run from you giggling as you attempt to tickle them.

That is what this challenge is all about. Making $1,000,000 in 365 days just for the sake of having the money is a waste of time and energy. Being a millionaire and having time and money freedom is the true goal. Time to really be able to enjoy a special closeness with those that we care about. It also takes commitment to the goal. As part of my preparation for and ongoing process of writing this blog I read other blogs about making $1,000,000 in 365 days. This one: http://millionaire365.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/hello-world/ lasted 8 days before the authors dream died.

How committed are you to your goal. What will it mean to you to accomplish it, not just the money, but what pleasure and enjoyment would time and financial freedom give you. It gives me the time to type out this blog while teaching my 7 year old son how to flip a quarter with his thumb. Life is truly worth living, and to live it you must experience it in the online world and the outside world where we can actually see, hear, and touch the life all around us.

Tomorrow I will be attending a Workshop on How to Start or Run a Business. Something that I noticed in the other blogs that I saw on making a million dollars is that all except one never had a plan or took the time to get one on how to achieve their goal. We are going to be different. Talk to you again tomorrow.

Day 7

Today was an interesting day. For about 4 hours the site had a very different look than it does now. Although I did like the look that was there it lacked some essentials, in particular the theme I chose lacked an opt-in area. I really want to be able to share action steps with you describing day to day activities toward our goal of $1,000,000 in 365 days. Without having you opt-in that would be a more difficult and time consuming task.

I also picked up the business cards for the cleaning business today. Now that I have the business cards it is time to shake the trees and actually get some customers for the cleaning service. Other than the theme change for the look of the site I am still working on ways to remove things that are not really beneficial to our goal (things like the original WordPress links) and replace those things with links and information that help us toward our goal.

One blogger that I know of makes over $40,000 a month just from his blog. His advice is to blog about something that you care about. Our goal of earning $1,000,000 in 365 days, has to be about something that you are passionate about. If your only motivation is the money, then it will be too easy to give up when the road gets tough. Start working on your “WHY”. That is what we will discuss tomorrow, the reasons why we wan to accomplish this goal.

Day 6

Today I worked on my customer list for the cleaning business. I used Google Squared to find businessess in my local area, and copied the list to a spreadsheet so that I will have a ready made list of businesses to contact and offer my services too.

I also did some work here on the blog as well. You may have noticed the additional post about Millionaire Online. Today we also talked a bit about the importance of having your own domain name. If you use a free blog site you are helping to build traffic that makes someone elses dreams come true. When you own your domain and drive traffic to a domain that you control, then you are building your own long term financial empire.

If you have questions about what a domain name is or how to get one of your own all you have to do is fill out your contact information in the optin form on the right, and I will walk you through how to select a domain name, and domain hosting. As an added bonus I am adding a link to something that I will blog about in more detail later. Many thousands of people each day search for information about survey on line. Here is a link that can help you make money with them.



Talk to you again soon.

Millionaire Online

Yes the blog is about how to make $1,000,000 in 365 days, and yes it is possible to become a millionaire online. Here at Millionaire365 we will give you the tools to do just that. The first step to becoming a millionaire online is that you must have some type of web presence and for most people who are successful online that means you must have a domain name.

Once you have a domain name the next thing that you will need is a home for your domain. That home is in a place called a hosting account. If you need help in selecting a hosting account and getting your website software installed optin over on the right by providing your name and email address, and I will be glad to help you get it setup. One of the easiest software installations that you can use will be WordPress, it usually free to install and the templates (the appearance) of your website can be free also.

Once you have your domain name, hosting and software in place it will be time to start making money with your blog. The most important factor in your online success is having lots of traffic to your website that takes action once they are there. By taking action I mean clicking on a link that gets you paid. We will discuss how to make that happen in future posts.

Day 5

Today was a productive day. As you can see from the other posts today, I did a post about marrying into millionaire status. It outilines what you need to know to marry a millionaire, and where to find them. For those of us who prefer to work toward our goal here are the days accomplishments.

I was able to get the order done for business cards for the cleaning business. The business cards should be ready to pick up on Thursday. So tomorrow I can start calling and or stopping by local businesses to get customers.

I also worked on the blog a bit today and added a Spanish language post. You will also notice a link to the Millionaire Matchmaker site as well. I joined their affiliate program, and if all goes well you should see a link to my dating site coming soon. The real meat of what I am doing each day is included in the “Action Steps” document that I update each day. In order to receive that document you will need to optin to the mailing list.

Tomorrow we will get some customers for the cleaning business. I will also show you how to get your blog started, step by step. So until then, stayed tuned, and I will see you tomorrow.
