i strongly agree with u mcneri. most of the comments failed to impart the essence of becoming a millionaire. having good intentions to become a millionaire, like building foundations for the less fortunate pips, giving employment etc., aside from wanting to achieve financial freedom is a sure way with the guidance from God.

Are you good with animals? Spread the word to friends and neighbors that you’re available to watch their pets while the owners go on a vacation or weekend trip. Pet owners often feel more comfortable leaving their furry friends in the care of an individual rather than placing pets in a boarding facility, so getting referrals shouldn’t be too difficult.

Many successful businesses started with an idea and that idea has become a success “from one person business to global corporations”.

One of the best ways to keep a grocery budget—and a waistline—in check is to do meal planning. But for some, this kind of planning is a mystery wrapped in an enigma. A meal planner could put together a list of a week’s recipes, along with a grocery list, for a harried but budget-conscious shopper.

Many of them will pay several hundreds of dollars for someone to get their business idea set up online. If you have the patience to learn how to do it yourself, it’s an extremely valuable skill and can be turned into a very lucrative side business idea—especially if you sign up for affiliate programs with companies like Kinsta, who offer high quality managed WordPress hosting plans that allow you to collect fees from the clients you refer their way.

Starting as a franchise can give you an upper hand by buying into an already established brand. You can leverage the brand’s already established customer base to drive sales as well as use their knowledge and proven marketing and operations strategies to run your business.
