Google How to Get Rich and you will come up with over 54 million hits. Just browsing some of those hits I found one site that said I could “earn $300 in 7 minutes”, and another that promised a guaranteed $100,000 per month!
I wonder how many of the people selling these products are actually rich themselves? How many people do you need to sucker into buying your product before you yourself are actually rich?
I did some research and I found the top 3 ways people get rich. And by rich I mean have a net worth in excess of $1,000,000. Can you guess how they did it? I’ll give you a clue, not by spending money on a system that will help you “get rich FAST!”
I suppose I could write an ebook and offer to sell you my “system” for the low price of just $49.95, but only if you BUY RIGHT NOW! Because the price could go up at any minute. Or I could just tell you. So here it is, the top three ways people get rich.
#3. Get An Inheritance
Hope you chose the right family. Otherwise you are out of luck with this method. This is the easiest of the top 3 ways to get rich. Just inherit your riches. Of course, you have to spend your whole life watching what you do so that you don’t piss somebody off and get yourself written out of the will. Of course, if you weren’t born into a rich family you could try and marry into one. Just as long as you don’t mind being called a gold digger.
#2. Start Your Own Business
But make sure it is boring and very unglamorous. Plumbers do amazingly well.
#1. Real Estate
We are not talking house flipping here. Commercial real estate investors were the big earners here. Buy a commercial building, rent it out. Keep it for years.
There you go! Note that lottery winners and internet marketers did not make the list. (Neither did bloggers )
