I must apologize because I don't know anything about you, so I don't exactly know where you are coming from. And my guess is that I can extend the same situation to you. You are talking to me like I am some mid 20's guy who said "this is too hard" and just quit.A $ million sure isnt much anymore. Youre right about that. But that first million sure does make the 2nd through 50th a whole lot easier. Chances of surviving that high shit tide youre sure of are a lot better with cheddar
Youre also right that the people that made themselves millionaires last year differently than those that did it 10 years ago, who did differently than those that did 10 years before that etc. Been a long time since a wagon wheel factory provided for any mans family
But its also true that the next self made millionaires will do it differently as well
But what they all have and will have in common is they wont be waiting for an invitation
I am in my mid 40's. I have worked a high paid career job + a weekend job, for over 20 years. 7 days a week for over 20 years straight. I have lived cheaper than most college students the entire time. No dating, no eating out, no vacations, I don't even go to movies or have cable TV. So I have amassed a decent nest egg, and thanks to the stock market surge (fake growth under Trump) I am doing just fine.
My point is, I am not speaking to you from a view of someone who hasn't made it and doesn't want to put in work. Even though if I was, I would still be correct. I am speaking to you from the position of a man who already made it to the top of the mountain and I am yelling down and warning the young men what awaits them.
And yes, once you make your 1st million, your 2nd becomes easier. But making that first million alone puts in you in the top 3% in the USA. And making the 2nd isn't all that much easier, especially with the economy giving all the wealth to the billionaires and starving off the middle class.
To sum it up, Trump is a failure and a coward and if you are betting on making it big in the west, then you should rethink it. You are better off going your own way and settling down and battening down the hatches because it is going to get VERY ugly in the west thanks to Trump being a gutless coward.
