What do 84% of all self-made millionaires have in common?

Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

What do 84% of all self-made millionaires have in common?
Douglas Vermeeren, CEO of The Millionaire Training Systems

Many people in the world would like to become millionaires. Becoming a millionaire comes with privileges and financial freedom that people who live paycheck to paycheck will never realize. A millionaire lifestyle comes with greater opportunities and increased freedoms. Millionaires experience less stress and increased opportunities to creatively explore their full potential. Most millionaires today are self-made and according to current research are made quick quickly. The average self-made millionaire today accomplishes this task in less than five years. Each year there are more than 200,000 thousand added to the ranks of the millionaires. Which translates into 547 per day and 22.8 per hour.

There has never been a better time or an easier time to become a millionaire than now!

Most self-made millionaires today live in North America. 84% of them have one thing in common. That one thing is that they are entrepreneurs. (The other 16% of self-made millionaires typically come through investing, including real estate.) These entrepreneurs can be divided into several sub categories. For this article I will focus on three.

Inventor – Inventors recognize a need for a solution to a specific need in the marketplace. They then devise a way to provide that solution. Often inventors partner with manufacturers and distributors to take the new invention to market. Inventions don’t always to be unique and incredible to be successful. In fact, generally inventions that are not highly simple don’t make it. Inventions aren’t limited to products, inventions can also include services or systems. Generally speaking, the bigger the problem the invention solves for the most amount of people, the more successful it will be. What could you invent that would solve a problem in todays marketplace?

Innovator – Innovators take an existing idea, service, product or business model and innovate it into something more effective. Typically the best innovations make something easier to use, save time or take up less space. Innovators are always on the prowl to determine how they can take something and make it better.The majority of Thomas Edison’s patents (and things which we was credited for inventing) were actually innovations on existing ideas that were either already in the marketplace or that had been presented in a more clumsy form by other inventors. Innovation is generally most successful when the subject being innovated is something that large groups of people need or would use. What existing idea, service or opportunity in the marketplace today could you innovate to become highly success?

Goods and service provider – Goods and service providers generally do not invent or innovate at all. they simply out perform their competitors. A great example would be Walmart founder Sam Walton. He simply found a better way of delivering products at a better price. The products weren’t essentially different from other department stores. The difference was in his ability to deliver them at a discounted rate by acquiring them in greater bulk. You’ve probably caught a little bit of a theme by now that you need to have a significant audience to support your entrepreneurial idea. In order for your goods or services venture to be successful you need to have something where a large enough support audience exists. What goods or service could you bring to market that a significantly sized audience would support? How could you bring it to them in a way which is better or more convenient?

84% of all self-made millionaires are entrepreneurs. Once they understand what they will deliver to their target audience they then develop systems to make marketing, sale and delivery possible and easy.

Our organization Millionaire Training Systems  shares expertise from many self-made millionaires who have done this before. Mentors like ours can help you analyze and strengthen your ideas, and then help you take them to market in the best ways possible.

Be Realistic! Can you be Rich?

Can you be Rich?

Can you be Rich?

Be Realistic! Can you be Rich?

By Douglas Vermeeren


When I set out to begin the 1 X 180 Million Dollar Experiment I heard something familiar to almost everyone who has ever tried to do something incredible, “Be Realistic!” You see the 1 X 180 Million Dollar Experiment involved me taking a $1 bill and inside of 180 days turning it into $1,000,000. Maybe right now you’re also saying be realistic.


The cry of ‘be realistic’ is something that we often hear when we are trying to do things that others may feel is impossible. While it is true some of the things we attempt may be difficult are they really unrealistic?



Let me ask you to think on this, here are the daily (Yes, I said daily) incomes for  a few names you’d recognize:


Indra Nooyi – Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo…………………………$50,960.00

Alan Mulally – President & CEO Ford Motors ………………………….$54,400.00

Donald Trump – CEO Trump Organization………………………………$200,000.00

Josef Ackerman – CEO Deutsche Bank………………………………….$7,616.00

Bernard Arnault – CEO Louis Vitton……………………………………….$21,104.00


Just for Fun:

Oprah Winfrey……………………………………………………………………..$1,260,000.00


The reason I share these isn’t to get you discouraged by noticing the current difference between what your daily income is and theirs. In fact, quite the opposite. I share these numbers, which by the way are not from the wealthiest people in the world, to share that  it is REALISTIC that there are people that make large amounts of money daily.


Reality is defined as having correct expectations for a certain set of circumstances. The problem for most people is they base their expectations on what they have experienced in the past or on what others tell them is possible. Generally speaking when you have no previous or false expectations imposed upon you and are left to simply engage in an activity you can meet with wonderful success.


Be very careful about what ideas from others you will accept as truth and reality.


When someone says ‘You are being unrealistic in your goal to be rich,’ ask yourself, is it the reality you want to endorse?  You have a choice. Remember the reality for many people is wealth, not poverty. You can choose that reality.


Choose today to live in and create your own desired reality rather than the reality that others have told you to live. You can create whatever possibilities are important to you.


Now what does it take to be a millionaire? I define millionaire in terms of cash flow, not assets. so how much cash do you need to have flow through your hands each day to be a millionaire?


Let’s do it the easy way:


$1,000,000 divided by 365 days = $2,739.72


To become a cash flow millionaire you need to have $2,739.72 come into your hands each day. (If you break that down even further it comes down to about $114 / hr)


When you start looking at it that way it becomes a little bit more realistic. Wouldn’t you agree?


Now the next question becomes one of how can you successfully construct systems that will allow you to generate $114 per hour twenty-four hours a day?
