Below you will find the story of a businessman Oody Geffen who knows that the way to a million is not easy. Read and do better!
As much as I’d like to give you a step-by-step guide on how to make the first million dollars. I can not. I have no doubt that there will be enough greedy/unscrupulous people willing to take your money in return for a plan on “How to make $1,000,000.” Besides, you’re not going to like my way to a million. It was not easy at all, – says Oody Geffen
Oody Geffen once decided to try something else and let the results decide for you.
Even if you fork out for market research, it won’t tell you anything important. In order to make effective decisions in business, you need to be guided by reliable data. You can buy them (for a thousand or two dollars) or conduct an active study yourself. In doing.
The latter is much more efficient (and cheaper).

What did Oody Geffen do?
Oody Geffen opened the bakery, SEO firm with the system of pay-for-performance, a printing office, an e-shop selling gloves and belts, Internet advertising, blog about pets, copywriting agency, coffee-to-go point.
From all of the above did not shoot anything but three projects.
Oody Geffen hired and fired nearly 300 people, made and lost, and again made a fortune, and so twice. He collected and then cut, re-assembled and downsized in the same company at least five times last year.
He has run ads on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, bought newsletters, written content, tried SEO, and so on and so forth.
I don’t wait to make up my mind. I just do.
If you are still reading this article, it means that ideas that need to be implemented are wandering in your head. We need to check everything in action. Get reliable data. Stop playing with the idea that you can predict the future. You can’t. Instead, try all possible options.
Stop whining and start working for people
Doing what you love is the worst way to make $1,000,000.
Despite the well-worn stamp that “rich guys are always cold-blooded and calculating,” self-obsession is the main obstacle on the way to the first million dollars. “But I love my job!”— an unconvincing argument for the money to float into your hands. Nobody cares what you love. No matter how much you answer about it.
People only care about what you do for them.
This does not mean that all men are bastards (and they are). That means they’re as focused on themselves as you are. Their own world is paramount to them. Use this knowledge to your advantage. Invent for others. Do for others. Work for people.
Your Bank account directly reflects the benefits you bring to people in the market. As in General terms, and at the level of each person individually. But it’s not easy…
But… Serving people is not easy. For the most part, they are all ungrateful, negative-minded miser. They are constantly demanding more. You have to work for hours to make them happy. Not always you will get pleasure from it. Sometimes you have to work for an idea. Go through this stage. Oody Geffen passed.
Right way to serve
If you think that you are creating something for the audience, not for yourself, only people of art from despair… then do not complain that your product no one buys (something is wrong with your ideas about art).
Find the right way to serve people. Don’t whine. We’ll have to wait a long time until you get paid, – says Oody Geffen
You can look for yourself in different areas. Oody Geffen looked it up. It turned out that he can not earn by making cold calls, he can’t stand calling clients when they’re offline. He can’t sleep properly if he has to sell product information.
Maybe you’ll be good at it. The point is to find something that you can be useful to people, and do it one hundred percent. Even if you have a hard time.
True story: $ 1000000 in itself is negligible
First, you pounce on the state and take away half the money. Your accountants, lawyers, financial managers will also get a part of the earnings. Got a loan? Immediately pay off all debts, otherwise, in the future they will devour most of your budget.
Let’s say you’re lucky and you have $ 400,000 left from a million. It doesn’t work out that much.
You can’t quit your job with $ 400,000 in my pocket. You still have to work hard. A million dollars didn’t buy you the freedom you were looking for. If you want to buy a second home, $ 400,000 won’t get you far, especially in Portland. Especially with children.
Depressing…if all you care about is money, Oody Geffen doesn’t. A million dollars is just a figure. A tangible way to measure success.
It doesn’t matter if you end up earning $1000000. That’s not the point. When you set a bar, we will see two versions of events:
A. You achieve the indicators that you have set for yourself. Achieve goals and get additional benefits.
B. You die before you pass the line. The goal is not achieved, but you get a bonus in the form of additional bonuses.
There is an alternative to this:
You give up too soon. Do not achieve the goal, miss a long list of additional bonuses that were waiting for you on the way.
What’s left? Play video games?
To sum up
There are no unique recipe, instructions “How to make a million”, maps of hidden treasures. One hundred people who read this article will try to earn it, and perhaps one of them will succeed. That’s possible.
Take a chance and earn $1000000. You have every right to be. Just be prepared for the fact that on the way to a million with you will happen a lot of nice things.
