It’s a common feeling. The feeling that your work goes largely unappreciated. The feeling that your boss should be paying you more. The feeling that you could be doing so much more! Is this how you feel? If so, I’ve got news for you. You and only you have the ability to demand appreciation, make more money, and become the success you that you know that you can be.
Rags To Riches Is A Real Phenomena
We’ve all heard of the fairy tale rags to riches stories. Unfortunately, however, when we’re stuck in a nine to five, day to day job that we believe isn’t fulfilling, that rags to riches fairy tale seems like it’s just that, a tale. The truth of the matter is that rags to riches are a very real phenomenon. Just ask Russell Ruffino.
Russ’ story starts behind a bar that he tended, making just $500 per week. This job grew tiring. He felt all of the feelings mentioned at the beginning of this article, and he was tired. Nonetheless, he decided that it was time to change something. With a great idea, a bit of hard work, and a willingness to believe in himself and his worth, Ruffino became a millionaire CEO of a company he founded called Clients-on-Demand!
How Do You Go From $500 Per Week To Millionaire?
The truth of the matter is that there is no proven step by step guide that will turn you into a millionaire. If so, everyone would be making millions. I’m also not going to sit here and tell you that it’s going to be easy. Making a substantial change in your income starts with making a substantial change in your habits. As human beings, we’re habitual creatures, so this is going to be difficult, but not impossible. Here’s what we know:
Time Management Is Overwhelmingly Important
In order to be one of the uber-successful millionaires in this world, you are going to need to make sure that your time is spent wisely. After all, there are only 24 hours in a day and sleep accounts for 8 of them. Most of the 16 hours that you’re awake, you’ll need to be working.
In fact, a group of self-made millionaires agrees that to reach high levels of success, you have to be willing to work a ridiculous amount of hours. While some millionaires have worked their way into normal schedules, getting there took dedication and a willingness to put down the 9 to 5 job and focus 12 hours or more per day, seven days a week, on building your business!
Make Sure That You Love What You’re Doing
Working an 84 hour or more work-week is going to be difficult. However, if you don’t love what you’re doing when you’re working, it’s going to be nearly impossible. Many times, when people go into business for themselves, they don’t focus on their passions. Instead, their focus when choosing their product or service is making as much money as possible as quickly as possible.
While the goal is to become a success and rake in the millions, if you let the money drive you, the chances are that you will fail. You won’t be willing to put forth the effort needed to succeed because you simply don’t like what you’re doing. However, if you build a business around what you love, you’ll not only be willing to put forth the effort, you’ll find it enjoyable. This will give you a much better chance of achieving a high level of success.
Treat Every Customer Like They Are Your First
When you get your business off of the ground, you’re going to be excited, but when that first customer walks through the door, you’ll be ecstatic. The chances are that you’re going to go above and beyond to make this customer happy. However, as your business grows, you may reach a level of complacency. Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us.
Unfortunately, however, this complacency often leads to dwindling quality of customer service. Your once very personal, focused on the customer business becomes an ATM and customers become numbers. Your customers will see this, so don’t let it happen. Make sure that every time you serve a customer, you serve them with the enthusiasm and quality level of service that you gave to your first customer. If you can do this, your chances of reaching a high level of success will grow substantially.
It’s Up To You From Here
As mentioned above, there is no proven step by step guide to becoming a millionaire. However, what we do know is that self-made millionaires work hard, they work a lot, they love what they’re doing, and they have a laser-like focus on quality when providing products and services to their customers. So, if you do the same, you may just find yourself enjoying the benefits of the millionaire’s club!
