Five Signs You’ll Never Be a Millionaire

What are the odds of you making a million dollars someday?  How you answer that question can actually have an effect on whether it happens or not.

Self-made millionaires usually get there because they truly believe making that much money IS possible if they make good choices and work hard.  Here are five more signs you WON’T end up being a millionaire . . .

1.  You’re too focused on saving.  You should save and be smart about spending.  You just probably won’t get RICH that way.  You have to focus on earning more, not saving.

2.  You don’t have goals for your money.  You need specific plans for how you’re going to use your money to make MORE money.  You also need to set high expectations for yourself, and then meet those expectations.

3.  You haven’t started investing yet.  Millionaires usually get there by investing a significant amount.  Like 20% of their income.  And that’s different than just saving it.

4.  You only have one source of income.  A recent study looked at self-made millionaires and found 65% of them got there by having at least THREE sources of income.  That includes things like side-gigs and real-estate investments.

5.  You don’t like taking risks.  Most people prefer stability, and that’s totally fine.  But most self-made millionaires HAVE to take risks.  They don’t get there by only making safe choices.


Would You Trust Your Dog to Babysit Your Kids?

Would you ever leave your kids home alone with just the DOG to babysit?  Keeping in mind that if you say “Yes,” Child Protective Services might have a very different answer?

According to a new survey, 12% of parents say they’ve left a kid five or younger alone with the family dog.  And 40% have left a child under 11 with the dog.

The survey also found the top four ways that kids can ANTAGONIZE dogs and possibly make them snap are:  Pulling their tail . . . sitting on them . . . messing with them while they sleep . . . and kissing their nose.
