If You Have Made $81.92 You're Half Way To A Million - Let Me Explain...

25 replies
Okay, so this is nothing new but I have not seen it mentioned on the forum before. I usually like to complain about something to do with IM when I do post here but today I am making a change and posting something a lot more positive.

This is something I have had on my wall for about 6 months now and has helped me achieve the full time IM dream that everyone so craves. It will get you through the difficult days and ultimately make you believe that this marketing stuff really can be simple.

It works on the age old principle of doubling $0.01 on itself just 28 times. So you turn your 1 cent into 2 cents and then your 2 cents into 4. Relatively simple goal correct?

1. $0.01
2. $0.02
3. $0.04
4. $0.08
5. $0.16
6. $0.32
7. $0.64 - Quarter Of The Way There Now & I Have Made 64c
8. $1.28
9. $2.56
10 $5.12
11 $10.24
12 $20.48
13 $40.96
14 $81.92 - The Half Way Point Is Around 3 Clickbank Sales
15 $163.84
16 $327.68
17 $655.36
18 $1310.72
19 $2621.44
20 $5242.88 - Not Long To Go & Made A Good Month's Salary
21 $10,485.76
22 $20.971.52
23 $41,943.04
24 $83,886.08
25 $167,772.16
26 $335,544.32
27 $671,088.64
28 $1,342,177.28 - Nearly 1.5m in 28 easy steps

Most marketers talk about ROI a lot, doubling your money is the bare minimum I personally look for in any kind of investment (unless quick 10% overnight) so this is very achievable.

Of course when you get towards the business end it will be trickier to double $335k etc but by then your knowledge and work force should of grown a long side your bank balance and you will believe that it is possible.

Comments welcome of course & if this helps just one person then it will be worth my while

    I have a theory that many people have been conditioned to think that more time = more money.* (Which is right if you're working for someone else.)

    However, when it comes to entrepreneurship, things are different. If it takes 50 steps to become a millionaire, you can complete in a couple of months or you can complete them over a couple of years.

    Great thread Jacob.

    *Think I learned it from John Reese. (Can't remember.)

    Thanks Jonathon.

    I think there is definitely a case for more time equalling more money but of course, it does not have to be your own time that does it. Part of being in business is about finding the people who are "conditioned", growing their talent and delegating tasks.

    I merely put this thread forward so people can see that everything does not have to be rocket science. If you always seek to double what you have (even if it is currently at the $5.12 stage) then things can happen very quickly.

    Thanks dp40oz Think I have gone down to about level 8 after an overpriced weekend but will get myself back up there at some point next week.

    I'm just glad a few people are taking something useful away from one of my posts, it is nice not to complain about things once in a while, may try it more often!

    This is a great method that I was taught about 12 years ago. A report written by Stuart Goldsmith I believe. If you follow the plan a lot more things are learned as you grow through the levels. When you start you can use your time to double small amounts of money. So with say $40 you could buy some wood and use your time to make that wood into a garden bench to sell for $80. But as the amounts get larger and larger this is less and less possible. So you have to think of cleverer and cleverer ways to double your money. In the process you evolve from an employee into an accomplished marketer.

    Money

    It can buy a House............But not a Home
    It can buy a Bed..............But not Sleep
    It can buy a Clock............But not Time

    It can buy you Medicine.......But not Health
    It can buy you Sex............But not Love

    So you see money isn't everything.

    So send me all your money..........

      I love this. Absolutely hilarious!

      Though you really should consider accepting PayPal as well. It just makes it so much easier for people to send you all their suffering.

    The trickiest part of this system is to make it all the way through the levels without spending any of your seed money on something else. As the pot gets larger and larger the temptation gets more and more difficult to resist...

    Everyone needs some kind of goal or inspiration without it you are destined to fail this one sounds easy enough to start but a challenge to reach the final objective.

    I see your point ... the old doubling idea

    It is very good

    The question is how many people here know how to triple the money they have

    I say triple because the theory asumes you woul live without spending which will only be true if you live in desert

    if you know how to triple your money without fail, then this plan would work

    Or Am i misiing something here

    great stuff, thanks! einstein told us "compound interest" is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. most can see that when they only make minimum payments on the credit card balance and never pay it off. obviously we want it to for us, not against us. i use that same formula often and ask someone, you have to choose ONE of these items. take 2 million dollars right now, or i give you a penny, and double every day for 30 days, which turns into over 5 million. everyone takes the quick money who don't know the compounding formula. thanks again, Dr. M

    Well, firstly I did enjoy your post. Having said that, it's a lot easier to double your return when you are making $0.01 or $0.02 than when you are making $81.92
