Make April your Million Dollar Month

Make April your Million Dollar Month

As April rolls around, most Americans turn to thoughts of spring showers – and income taxes. Uggh! And this year, more and more tax filers are reporting unhappy news. They owe the feds! And when you’re living paycheck-to-paycheck, those types of surprises might be enough to set you back for the rest of the year. So this April, how about taking the FREE 30-Day Million Dollar Challenge?

What’s a Million Dollar Challenge?

Let me start by telling you what it’s not! I’m not a snake oil kind of gal so you’re NOT going to make $1,000,000 in 30 days! Instead, each day for 30 days you’ll receive an email that will help you draft a plan to build a net worth of $1,000,000. It might take you 3 years or 3 decades to hit your mark, but your millionaire plan is the foundation that will set you on your way. The Challenge isn’t difficult and could be the “kick in the pants” you need to launch your money dreams.

But it’s Impossible!

If someone had told me 20 years ago that I was writing a million-dollar challenge, I would have laughed them out of the room. And then cried. You see, I thought it was impossible. I had just emerged from a stint in poverty and while I was beginning to launch my career, the dream of becoming a millionaire was positively out of reach. But then, I got serious and here I am, on the plus-side of $1,000,000. Holy cow! I accomplished this feat as a single mom with a good income and low expenses – over time, the magic of compound interest did its trick. If you’d like the details, check this out.

Believe it or not, I’m not into wealth-building just for the heck of it. Almost a year ago, my career came to a crashing end. The money I had accumulated turned into more than a safety net – it allowed me to pursue my passion and today, I’m just two weeks away from launching the Early Exit Academy for Young Escape Artists. My new mission is to help people escape the paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle so that when they’ve had enough of the office, or the job disappears, they are set for life. I’m here to say, “it’s entirely possible!” Can you imagine waking up Monday morning without the alarm clock and a big smile on your face as you decide how best to spend your day? Well, what are you waiting for?

The Million-Dollar Challenge provides some basic tools and instructions, but it’s not boring! In fact, I spiced it up by adding Q&As with 15 top personal finance bloggers.

Roth of Get Rich Slowly, the Financial Samurai, Paula Pant of Afford Anything, and J. Money of Budgets are Sexy fame.

The Challenge Starts April 1 … Don’t be Late

We start the FREE challenge together on April 1. So challengers need to sign up before that date.


If you miss the deadline – or you prefer to take the Challenge on your own time – you can grab the Kindle version at the Amazon store.

Want to speed up your $1,000,000 plans?

I am putting together the final pieces of the amazing Early Exit Academy courses. Yes, even by my high standards, the courses are awesome. First out of the gate is the Young Escape Artists course (launches April 10), followed by the Midlife Dreamers version (launches May 27). Both courses are gamified. You’ll be collecting coins and earning badges to unlock new units as you travel from the Desert of Complacency to Freedom Kingdom. The Academy offers you the opportunity to build your dream life. I hope you can join us!

So how about making April the month of opportunity and dreams?
