Making 2013 Your Best Ever Money Making Year

8 replies
As this is my 600th Post in nearly ten years on here I thought I would try and make it a decent one!

Very often I come across people talking about the concept of ‘Get Rich Quick’, it is much maligned because of its evil cousin ‘Get Rich Easy’.

Get Rich Quick is very possible and examples are all around us on the Internet and especially on this forum.

Whereas Get Rich Easy usually never happens that’s where someone is hoping or sold on a plan that pushing one button will instantly create wealth – dream on!

Now before I ramble on, one small caveat – ‘Quick’ is a very subjective word for some it may mean today for others in the context of becoming a millionaire it could mean 5 years.

Look at how much the founders of Facebook have made in 7 years. Now that’s quick in my book!

To get rich quick one needs a plan then laser beam like focus and work (smart or hard, you choose) to implement that plan.

This time of year and especially between Christmas and New Year I spend a lot of time drawing up my plans for the year and thinking about the resources (finance, people, etc.) I will need to implement them.

With any project I start I always think of them as an asset (which they are!) and how am I going to exit (cash out). I like to build assets as I’m getting an old fart and would like to be in a decent care home with a bar!

Don’t get me wrong I love the monthly income the assets produce but I much prefer the lump sum on exit.

Life also seems to get so much easier and less stressful when you focus on one main project and stop jumping from one shiny object to another.

It’s OK to have more than one project on the go as long as you allocate your time accordingly.

So if you want to get out of the get rich easy mentality and get rich quick then spend some time over the holidays putting pen to paper and develop your plan for financial freedom.

I hope this helps somebody, Happy Holidays.

    Thanks Guys

    The key is not just to have the goal but set out the road map on how to achieve it, it will always need tweaking as you go along but at least your heading in the right direction, also way ahead of 95% of other people who don't bother at all.

    I had a look at your blog outlining a few things you want to get done in 2013 and there is no reason you can't kick in some focus and get your first product out in a couple of weeks, best of luck.

    To me, it has not happened (get rich quick) though quick still needs to be defined. I started my online experience a long time ago (but recently had the chance of working my way up) and I am doubling the money approx each 45 days

    so it will take a little time for me to get rich hehehe

      That's great if you have a good amount to double in the first place.

      I would take some time out to look at what's working for you, you may find that the 80/20 rule is applying if so then look at some of the 'stuff' that isn't that productive and focus on what is, you will soon get that 45 days down to a more reasonable amount.
