Nowadays you may find his interview in popular magazines and on TV. He claims, his secret's that he keeps learning. To succeed in such field you should go through certain stages:
- Change your thinking. Remember, that cash's a living thing. Asset management's important here. It possesses the same potential as you do. Think of each dollar as an employee.
- Power of small amounts. Many people are wrong when think they need an enormous sum for their start-up. It actually will work even if you save just one dollar at one time.
- Each saved dollar buys you freedom. The more your money employment is, the better your financial status becomes.
- Responsibility. Where you're now is the sum of decisions you’ve made earlier. Thus, if you start investing right away you may get rich in ten years already.
- Buy the stock. Plenty of people try to buy products. However, it’s more effective to purchase the company itself.
- Study other people’s success and make use of it.

5.Marry someone rich.

It is very easy. However, the possibility of winning, for instance, one million dollars is comparatively low. Almost impossible, we should say. Nevertheless, there have been several examples in the history.
Your own business is the way. It's quite effective. All you need to know is what you're going to sell or produce (the products must be relevant). Besides, a certain amount of money's necessary for starting. Risks are high, but if you succeed, you'll become wealthy. Then, you are free to sell your business or continue earning with it.
8.Try yourself as self-employed expert.
Many people, who've developed particular skills, are able to work on themselves. It’s more profitable than working for any company. Don’t forget, there're risks and your skills must be special to reach something.
It’s one of the most famous money making strategies. Buy a house, develop it, and then sell. You'll probably need to receive a credit, but the final value of property will cover all your expenses. It’s essential to sort out a good building in an appropriate area.
It’s possible to invent something new, that plenty of people need. Of course, it’s difficult. Don’t forget to patent your invention.
These are the most popular ways of getting lots of money. The majority of rich people have used one of them and succeeded.
