Million Dollar Questions

36 replies
My Fellow Warriors,

I have the opportunity to talk with a multi-millionaire for as long as I desire. Since I want to be as thorough as possible what questions would you ask him if you had this opportunity?

Trust me when I tell you I will use your questions if you post them. We have a few hours set aside and I plan to pick his brain.

Thanks for your input.

      If he lost everything tomorrow, and had no assets, no credit, no contacts, no nothing, just the clothes on his back ... how would he go about rebuilding his wealth?

      Well this might be the first one, ? but why if you are sitting with a MM in a once in a lifetime event are you bothered asking questions for everyone else ?

      Surly you have your own questions and then it would not be a matter of sitting there talking with this person but quietly listening and soaking in the answers to those questions you have?

    Here's the question

    If you would have an opportunity to change this world what would you change?

    Here's what I ask:
    What kind of mindset did you need to create to become a millionaire and what tips do you have for others?
    Was there anything that you had to change in your lifestyle to become a millionaire?
    What techniques did you use to motivate yourself?

    Hope that helps!

    Make it a great day!

    I would want to ask you how you got that opportunity.

    I would ask him/her what they did to get around, "self-sabotage" in other words, did they ever feel like they couldn't or shouldn't succeed? If so, what did they do to overcome those feelings. If not, why not, do they just feel destined to succeed in life?

    Ask them to tell you all the mistakes they made and what they would do differently.

    Also ask them how they consistently follow through when the hunger for money is gone.

    Thanks everyone for your questions.

    Rob123, I met him about four years ago and coached him on how to market on the Internet. We remained good friends and talk every month.

    I figured since I know his story and what works for him (which has helped me tremendously) why not give others the chance to ask him questions.

    I would ask him as to what made him preservere when times
    were going tough for him. I would ask him what it was to keep
    his motivation at a high level...

    Mukul, you want me to ask him how he found his mentor or how did I meet him?

    Got all the questions down. Continue to ask as there could never be too many.

    Tryinhere, good question but this is not the first time I am talking with him. I have known the individual for over 4-years. I have already asked my questions. I know what works for him as he has revealed that to me. We are having our usual meet up and I figured, "Why not get the WF member questions answered too?"

    I could disregard the questions provided, delete this post and gladly go on my merry way as I have already gained tremendously from his wealth of experience and knowledge.

    I am always learning, so every meet up is new to me because I have new questions regarding my business ventures. This time I want to help others instead of keeping the focus on me.

    Surely, I can give up one meeting for the WF?

    Definately ask him how he would do it again if he had to start from scratch.

    Also ask him about the mistakes he made and what he did to rectify those mistakes. It's sometimes just as valuable to know what to avoid as what to do next.

    Lastly, ask him if he can give an hour to all those who posted on your thread

        What's his daily routine?

        How does he find a balance between work and family, friends, having a life? What does he do to actually enjoy the fruits of his labor?

        Thanks for providing this opportunity stsnelson.

        My question:
        Did he have more desire to make money before he had made anything or after he had started to make his money?

        Thanks,
        Ali

    Hmm... I love all the post, they are all about money / success....

    I would ask him what has he done to help those communities that are less developed

    I would ask him would he consider helping homeless individuals that are willing to get on their feet

    I would ask him what charities does he donate to and not ask for a donation slip to write it off on taxes

    But that is just me...

      This is a forum about making money, perhaps I would ask that question on the charity forum.

        Your right it is ... but money does not = success.... I stated what I would ask because frankly I do not look at life or business to be all about money. Sure we all need money and we all need to pay bills and live but life is not all about money...

    Okay, quick update.

    I have talked with my buddy and we are trying to figure out when we can do the conference call. He's extremely busy right now.

    He's looking forward to the questions everyone provided. As soon as I can organize them I will forward it to him.

    Will keep everyone posted.

      Ask him how he gets where he is right now.

      Every successful person has a personal secret of climbing up the ladder and if he can reveal to you then you will no longer need to re-invent the wheel.

      Just follow his footsteps and you will be the next millionaire.

      But most millionaire just keep it as a secret with them.
