The Automatic Millionaire Review – One-Step Plan?

Can you really become an Automatic Millionaire with David Bach’s Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich? In today’s review of the Automatic Millionaire BendTheRulez is putting this question to the test.

The Automatic Millionaire Review

The main message


What the book is all about is pretty simple really. Pay yourself first by automating contributions to retirement accounts and investments before even taking into account your living expenses. The idea is that the power of compound interest will make you a millionaire at age 65 automatically. The one-step of the title refers to making those contributions automatic, in order not to rely on willpower. It’s a simple concept really, but the reason most people don’t apply it is because they either don’t believe in it, or they believe it’s too difficult to try it, since many people are just getting by with their income.

The ONE Thing Book Summary – Important Takeaways

I’ve been meaning to read The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results for quite some The ONE Thing Book Summarytime now. The procrastinator I am, I never got down to it. So, I decided to push myself to write this The ONE Thing book Summary, in order to finally read the book. And I did!

Without further ado, let me present the most important takeaways and lessons I got from it!

Summary in a sentence: Find your ONE Thing, prioritize it above everything else and let it drive you to success.

Gary Keller and Jay Papasan start the book with a revelation they actually made in their lives that led to the ONE Thing philosophy. That is, whenever they focused their concentration on only one thing, that’s when they had the most success. Conversely, whenever their focus varied, so did their success.

Buying Options: I suggest Amazon. You can find the best prices on Kindle or paperback. Alternatively, use the Audible trial that gives you 2 audiobooks for free!

Today I’m gonna try to answer a question that nagged me for quite some time. Is Affilorama worth the money?

When starting out in internet marketing, I scoured the web for hours on end about ways to make money online. As a result, I came across many different programs and courses that promised me Is Affilorama Worth The Moneyriches and supposedly held the secrets to online success. I’m sure you all have!

One of the courses that captured my attention among others was Affilorama by Mark Ling. While I didn’t end up becoming a member(I joined Wealthy Affiliate instead), Affilorama certainly stood out compared to the shitty courses that the internet is full of.

Recently, I came across their website and noticed some changes. This sparked my interest and I decided to become a free member to check the place out. I also researched online for reviews on the premium products that are also offered on the platform.

However, I was disappointed because many of the reviews were outdated and didn’t take into account the changes that have been made on the platform recently. As a result, I chose to delve deeper and compiled the most updated info I could find here.

But first things first… Continue reading →
