Getting Started!


This unique Guided Learning Experience is about wealth … real wealth. But, what does that mean? We’ll be working on that together … very soon. First, let me ask you a question: Exactly, how rich is ‘rich’? It might surprise you to learn that there is no universally accepted answer to this question … but, […]

Will it do the job?


As we head into the July 4th holiday weekend it’s an opportune time [AJC: did you think I was just going to let you sit on your deck watching the fireworks when there’s serious millionaire-making to be done?! πŸ˜‰ ] to consider your journey: assessing whether the ad that you have placed on Craigs List […]

Playing in the sandpit …


This is one of our last structured exercises … … soon, our paths to our Number will begin to diverge and we won’t be able to neatly keep every one of the 7 Millionaires … In Training! – and, our readers – on exactly the same path. Right now, though, we have one of the […]

Under the spotlight: Scott


As Josh found out πŸ˜‰ I like to put our 7 Millionaires … In Training! under the virtual ‘spotlight’ when they have an issue, question or decision of note. It doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong, it just might mean an opportunity to examine their current strategy with all of our readers … you never […]

Number Wanted

Under the spotlight: Josh


Under the spotlight: Josh I’m starting a new ‘occasional series’ where we put one of our 7 Millionaires … In Training! – or, any other reader – under the spotlight when there is an interesting or unusual aspect of their journey towards their Number / Date that needs to be discussed. Josh is the lucky […]

The Transition

Making Money 201?


Making Money 201? I now realize that I was a little premature running the photo of the space shuttle actually launching off the pad; where we’ve really been until now is back at the Launch Control Center making sure that we are all prepared for the flight: suits [check]; oxygen [check]; flight training [check]; flight […]

April Spending


April Spending Josh has come up with the honest truth about budgeting:” little purchases add up quick” … print it in B I G letters, frame it and hang it on your wall and you won’t go too far wrong … What can you add? ________________________ So the month of April is over and I […]
