"Work is just something I'm doing until I win the lottery."
On January 6, 2008 I wrote the following post here on AR. I would love to readjust the numbers to reflect today's membership numbers but, with all the spam memberships, that is impossible. But, you should get the point.

Does becoming a "millionaire" appeal to you? A million dollars doesn't go as far as it used to but it's still a lot of money and a worthy goal.
I was reading some interesting statistics the other day about how one could go about becoming a millionaire. According to the chart, which came from a USA TODAY analyst, here are some ways of going about attaining a million dollars... and what the odds are:
Inheriting $1 Million 12 million to 1
Winning the lottery 12 million to 1
Winning at casino slots 6 million to 1
Winning a game show 4 million to 1
Saving $800 month for 30 years 1.5 million to 1
Owning a small business 1,000 to 1
Clearly, the most likely way to become a millionaire is by investing your time and effort into your own business.
Real estate agents are all, quite literally, running their own business so it's a matter of making a plan and working the plan.
With over 10,000 members at A.R., that means 10 of us should become millionaires. Will you be one of them?
I hope so!
