You have to read this, it can change your life!
I am sure you have seen stuff similar online written by a blogger who makes $50,000 a year, but I am going to tell you the stuff you ACTUALLY need to break over $100,000 a month. This is coming from someone who makes over $100,000 a month, most months. Even I have some slow times of the year, but if I needed to ramp it up, I could hit any number I want from knowing these key factors I am about to share.
So listen up…
The first thing to becoming a filthy stinking rich millionaire is to have a LARGE NETWORK. I have opportunities pouring in everyday since lots of people know my name! Ever hear the old saying “your network is your net worth?” Well, it’s true! The more people who know your name, the more you will win at the game! What if I told you that we are all one phone call away from being a millionaire? Would you believe me? Listen, this is a fact! You have just been calling the wrong people and selling the wrong service. I have been on many million dollar calls with people. I also have been on plenty of broke a** calls with people that never amounted to a turtle sh*t.
So, start adding people on all your social media accounts and start networking EVERYWHERE right now!
If you want to truly be successful, you have to have SKILLSETS! I love having many different marketing skillsets, so I am never limited to certain type of work. I have started dozens of businesses and always have different opportunities speeding in like a red Ferrari.

Remember, the more you have to offer, the more valuable you will become! I try learning new things every single day, and later on in this article I will elaborate a little more on this topic. So, don’t ever limit yourself to one thing. Make sure you are the swiss army knife and not the butter knife!
This next secret is extremely important!
You will have to have DRIVE! Dude, you could have all the skillsets in the world and know everyone, but without drive it won’t even make a difference. I am driven almost 24/7 to get out of bed and crush goals! You can’t have a lazy bone in your body if you want to be successful, unless you are a super genius like the ones you read in comic books, which I doubt. Drive is what keeps you going when you feel like giving up. People ask me why I have so many exotic sports cars and my excuse is so I can stay driven. To be honest… I have never said that before until today LOL. Just remember, success doesn’t mix with laziness!
Okay, okay… We are down to our last two, so I need to spice it up a bit!
The success key to the fortress of riches is….. KNOWLEDGE!
The more you learn, the more you earn! I used to HATE READING with a passion, but I could never break past $100,000 a year before reading. I kept seeing ultra successful billioniares like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett talk about reading all day, so I said I would give it a shot. It was honestly the best investment I ever made. I now spend 3–6 hours a day listening to audio books or reading. I have a rolodex of online training courses I watch religiously as well. I watch don’t tv, I watch trainings. I don’t listen to music, I listen to books on business and skillsets as often as possible. Like right now, this weekend I was invited out on the lake. Instead, I am practicing my writing here in this article while listening to trainings on copywriting. If you have ADD or ADHD like me, start small! I don’t expect you to be able to pick up a book for 6 hours. When I first started out, I would read for 5 minutes at a time and work my way up. It took months to be able to read for hours on end. So don’t get discouraged. If my high school drop out self can do it, so can you. So invest into yourself and never stop growing/learning. The dumbest man in the world thinks he knows everything and the smartest man thinks he knows nothing.
Last gold nugget of the day is….
Being able to NOT GIVE A F***.
I am being serious! On your road to riches, people are going to try to tear you down! Friends and family will doubt you! You will lose money! You will have to learn to ignore everyone and stay focused. Anything and everything will go wrong, but you can’t quit. Just know with every failure, you are one step closer to the top. By the way, “failure” isn’t even a real thing. I call failures expensive learning lessons. Nothing more than lessons that make you stronger. Everyone I knew doubted my first businesses and even talked about me behind my back. I didn’t listen. I have been attacked too many times online to even care these days. So, have thick skin and don’t worry about what other people are saying about you. No one can say sh*t at family reunions when I pull up in my McLaren. I have never once seen my haters at the bank or at the Rolls Royce dealership.
Anyways, this article is drawing to a closing and I hope you enjoyed reading. I wish someone would have told me these gold nuggets ten years ago when I was first starting out.
P.S. I write all of my own material and would never hire someone to write for me. To speak with me directly, go to GallantDillMentoring.com
