The secrets in this article have been used by the wealthy for years and can be applied to any type of business. In this article, we break down the 5 Secrets of Millionaires.
1. Provide More Value
Millionaires know that the money you make is directly correlated to the value you provide. So, if you want to make more money, deliver more value. This can be in the form of products and services, however, if you want to reach the millionaire level you have to deliver valuable products and services at scale.
For example, let’s say you own an informational product business. You sell eBooks and courses that provide value to a target audience. To bring in new customers, you run advertisements on Google. Since you are selling a digital product, you can produce it once and sell as many copies as you want. Also, once you find a marketing method that works and brings in more income than you spend, you can scale to any level you want to scale to.
2. Utilize Leverage
In order to generate millions and wealth within a short amount of time [10 years or less], millionaires know that you must use leverage. Leverage can be anything from technology, marketing systems, other people’s money, or even other people’s time. Using leverage can shorten the amount of time it takes for you to reach your financial goals.
If you have a valuable product or service, leverage allows you to sell on a larger scale. Think about it, if someone has a course that they sell for $47 but only sells to 100 people they’ll make $4,700 in revenue. However, let’s say they sell to 1,000 people then they’ll bring in $47,000 in revenue. Knowing the concepts of leverage and how to utilize leverage effectively is what separates many millionaires from non-millionaires.
3. Passive Income > Earned Income
It’s extremely difficult to become a millionaire within a reasonable amount of time trading time for money. This is because there are only so many hours within a day. Millionaires know that the quickest way to become a millionaire is to unlink their income from their time.
To do this, they create and purchase assets that produce income for them while not having to work for it. An example would be writing an eBook and selling it for $37 on your website while running paid advertisements to your eBook sales page. You only have to write your eBook once and it can produce income for you for years to come. Your marketing methods are going to change more than your eBook and with technology, you can run advertisements 24/7 and print money in your sleep.

4. Products > Trading Your Time
Like what I mentioned in step 3. Trading your time for money is a losing trade because once you spend your time, you can’t get it back. However, you can always get money back. Also, by trading your time, you’ll never be paid what you worth. Every business is able to be in business because their workers bring in more money than what the business pays them.
Millionaires know that people are willing to trade their time for the security of a paycheck. They know that they can pay someone $40,000 to perform a service that brings in $200,000. They also know that selling products allow you to unlink your time from your income which makes your income unlimited.
5. Model A Proven Formula
One of the quickest ways to success is to model after another successful person. A proven formula takes the guesswork out of the process and allows you to have more faith in your ability to make it happen.
For example, if you want become a millionaire through your own digital products business then best way to go about it is to look for a mentor who is already one. Create a plan of action based off their formula and you can not only shorten your learning curve but also shorten the amount of time it takes for you to reach your millionaire goal.
