How I Became a Millionaire

A million bucks! Some might think that’s peanuts, but to me, $1,000,000 buys me a high level of financial freedom. And just how did I get there? Nothing fancy. While I had a respectable salary, I only had one income. One income on which to raise my child. Yet the formula to reach $1,000,000 is about as basic as it gets. Live below your means. Save and invest as much as you can. Then give it time.

That’s pretty vague, right? So I provided ALL THE DETAILS in an interview I conducted for ESI Money’s Millionaire Series. I hope you enjoy the read!
