…what would I do to become a millionaire? This was such a good exercise… maybe I will be hustling to make it happen!
OK, I would wake at age 20. I estimate it would take me 5-7 years to reach a million bucks of net worth. During this time, I would be living as frugally as possible and working part-time for the first 2 years to cover my expenses and build up my credit score (through secure loans).
- 20 years old: For starters, I would not have done my PhD; instead, I would get a PhD directly from millionaires. Think about it, people spend tens or even hundreds of thousands on a degree to learn from professors, but the majority spends less than $1000 over their lifetime on books. Why would you not want to read a book written by a millionaire, who is basically giving you his formula in exchange of something like 10 bucks? I would read all these , understand that money is a tool, which I should use and not be used for.OK, so education is almost solved (after all at this point I know all the formulas from the major businessman on earth), but to top it off I would look for a mentor. Knock on doors and show my excitement to learn from them. I estimate this would take three to six months.
