I have studied the success of many millionaires and billionaires and there is one common trend amongst this elite group of people: hard work.
To get to this level, you need to be willing to put in the long days towards a passion that excites you. Instead of investing in others, start by investing in yourself. Get to know who you really are and then own it.
I wrote a 21-step article on personal branding to talk more about developing yourself and who you are. You can become a millionaire by simply following the steps and repeating until people notice you.
By making yourself the valuable individual, you eliminate the need to invest in others. Grow you own business with your proprietary intellectual property and you will become independent of what the market says.
Look at Richard Branson and his empire at Virgin. Look at Jeff Bezos.
These billionaires built their empires. What will yours be?
