For some reason in my life, I have always wanted to become a millionaire.
How? I don't know, but I always try to think of new million dollar ideas that could work.
The guy who made the NERF super soaker is a millionaire, some lady made her millions selling wine glasses with different designs and paintings, the guy who made the three wheeled baby stroller became a millionaire.
These are all SIMPLE ideas that just became extremely popular. Look at the Snuggie. This other guy made a machine that kept medical tools very cold and he became rich from it.
I want to become a millionaire so I could rub my bullies noses in it and all the people that never believed in me.
What does everyone think?

I'd like to be a millionaire, but it has nothing to do with bullies, though. It's just so I don't ever have to go back to nursing again.

I have dreams of finishing my websites and making a lot of money off of them... maybe not millions, but enough to get by and work my main job. I know this is going to take a lot of work and dedication as well.

Besides saving a big chunk of the money for myself, and giving enough for my parents to retire I do not know what I do with the rest of the money. I would probably donate a large amount to people/animals in need. I really do not desire or require unessential items that many wealthy people own.

I prefer being low-key and not drawing a ton of attention.

I would be a professional good-deed-doer. :) a force for good in this world, with muscle to back it up.

The average wage in Australia is $72,800. I think most people without children could be millionaires by the time they retire. In fact, without superannuation, the average person needs about $1,000,000 to live out the rest of their life.

I think becoming a billionaire is a better target. :)

It's not million dollar ideas - everybody's got 'million dollar ideas'

It's million dollar advertizing.

You mentioned a bunch of people that made millions but how do you know they made anything at all?
Lots of costs in selling widgets.
Maybe they only broke even regardless of the hype they claim their stuff has.
Maybe they went bust.
Maybe they did make a few hundred grand.
Super Soaker was made by Hasbro, a $3.9 billion dollar multi-national company -not "some guy".
A million dollars isn't even peanuts to them.

If you want to make a million dollars it isn't that hard because it isn't that much.
LOL -figure out how to make 100 thousand and do it ten times.
A thousand isn't that much, do it 100 times and you got 100 thousand.

That may sound sophistric but it's basically true.

gee, that sounds about as easy to do, as going in back and grabbing a hunk off the money tree. :roll:

Yeah but I still think a million dollars isn't enough to show off about these days.

not enough for bling purposes but enough to be lifetime-comfortable and rat-race-free, if one plays one's cards right. that kind of millionaire life is good enough for me.

Oh for sure, I'll never have anywhere near that much so it would certainly be enough for me! But I don't think it would impress the bullies that much, these days. A million dollars ain't what it used to be.

the bullies aren't worth impressing. they aren't worth an iota of anybody's mental energy or time. the best comeback to a bully, is simply to not be like them, to eschew anything like them and anybody that likes them.

That has been empirically demonstrated to be false.
