The Saving

Ok, obviously you won’t think that I will make a million dollars just by selling my junk. If anyone that have a million dollars worth of junk, he already is a millionaire. 

Benjamin Franklin quotes: a penny saved is a penny earned, so to become a millionaire, it is not about how much money you made, but how much money u saved. 

Saving money doesn’t mean that you have to live cheap; all you needed to do is to be smart about it. 

I never have a credit card; it means that I never have to pay high interest, and I don’t have a bank loan or never in any debts.

I don't buy cheap thing! I buy thing cheap!

I only put petro on Saturday or Sunday because there are the cheapest throughout the week.
I love going out for movie, but won’t do it as often these day, instead I will rent a DVD, and it is still enjoyable!

I only eat out twice a week (as a reward for working hard), and normal day will eat at home, and normally I will cook a bit extra so that I can bring it to work as my lunch the next day. You can save a fortune by doing that. SERIOUSLY!

There is just some of my saving tips that work for me, I am sure everyone can figure out a way to save money without losing the value in life. Remember, work hard! Play harder! Remember to be smart about it, enjoy life! Live life!

The idea and the lesson

I find myself constantly coming up with those “great” ideas on how to make money. At least it seem great when I first thought about it

I once thought import cheap stuff from Asia country and sell it in Australia would make money. So I did but then I fail.

I once try printing my own t-shirt to sell but I fail again

I once trying to set up the online business selling crystal – - but then I fail again.

I even do the market once selling old junk and I made about $50 "profit" after paying the rental for the place, but then that $50 has to share between 2 people and we were there for 6 hours.

I try and try, and I fail and fail. The only credit I get is my determination but other than that I am just pure stupid.

What is it you need to make money? First thing and also the most important thing: BRAIN

You can’t make a sale if you don’t have a customer, you can’t make a sale if the customer doesn’t know you have the product, you can’t make a sale if your product is too expensive, you can’t make a sale if your product is useless, and you can't make a sale if your product is not unique.

Instead of selling a million different kind of product to a million different kinds of people, why don’t you try to sell one product that a million different kinds of people would want it?

Those are the lessons I have learn from those "great" idea I come out with.

Good bye Averon...

The action, the faith and the determination

It is always easy to say and it is even easier to dream.  But when it comes to the action, it requires faith and determination.

Some people are just pure stupid, some are just weird, and some will be rude to you. That is how it is and there is nothing you can do about it.

Rejection after rejection! Sometime you will feel that you are going nowhere, a lot of time you just want to take the easy way out and quit. 

Are you going to let all this negativity get you down? Or you are going to stay strong and keep on moving? My advice:  Hold on to your faith and don’t give up so easily, eventually you will find your way out. How do I know? Because I been there.

I have been trying to sell the baby clothing that my mum sent from Malaysia, at first I thought it is going to be easy, I try to sell it online, advertise on bulletin board and even go to the market, but I didn’t get any result, and there is a period I was completely giving up.

Just recently I have tried the different approach, instead of looking for customer, I directly ask the shop owner that sell baby clothing.

I successfully sold 48 pieces of baby clothing at $3 each. Total amount I made $144

So whatever you do, hold on to your faith and don’t give up!

The Sell

I am always thinking what else could I possibly do besides working to make an extra income?

Sometime you won’t believe how simple the answer is: Sell.

Sell the stuff that you no longer needed or use can make a little bit of extra money and the method is simple; do it online or put a note on the bulletin board. is a website that I use to sell my stuff online is free and I also put the note on the bulletin board at work and I am amaze the respond I get from it.

Stuff that I sold:

Dream catcher pendant $20
IPod with speaker $100
Soft toy $20
Old mobile phone $15
Old calculator $10
Dinosaur teeth $50
Fossil $15

Total money made: $230

It is easy money and the time you spent is not a lot, all you need to do is take a picture and uploads it online - that is!

My plan are: to sell all the stuff that I no longer need and use the money to buy some interesting stuff to sell and make more money!

So people, start selling! =)

The purpose

What is the purpose of me wanting to become a millionaire?
To be able to do whatever I want in life, for example:
-          Travel around the world with my family.
-          I am not much of a shopaholic but I do love to eat, to be able to go into any restaurant try out any nice food and not worry about the price has always been my dream.
-          Go to Africa and do what Oprah did, obviously I won’t be able to do exactly what she did but if there is one kid I can help out, I will be delighted.  I love you Oprah, you has inspire me!
-          Helping people that are in need, because in life, you can’t just keep receiving but not giving.
-          A beach house – I love the beach!
That is my purpose, what is yours? Most people only thought of wanting the million dollars but only few of them actually think about the purpose. So take some time and think about what you really want in life.
Important note:
Money is important, but it is not the most important thing in my life. Family, health, love and friends are always far more valuable than money.

The Million Dollars Dream

This is the introduction of why am I starting this blog – which is to make my way to become a millionaire.

Everyone dreams of becoming one, but does anyone really work on it to become one?

To those who said yes, answer me this question: “how do to you really “working on it” to become a millionaire?”  Get a job and work hard? That is working hard to make your boss a millionaire. Get lottery?  Some people do become a millionaire overnight, but what are your chances?

To those who said no, why? Is it because it is too hard? Is it because you don’t know how to get started or you just think it is impossible so you don’t even bother to try?

I will make a million dollars in a year time! That is the statement I made today!

For those who think I am a joker, I don’t care.

For those who support me, thank you! Hope I can inspire you and you can make changes in your life too to achieve your own dream.

So please stay tunes everyone, my million dollars journey have begun.
