    Do you want to be in the 1%?

    Like, I don't wanna be the 99%. I don't wanna live in a tent and poop on myself. I wanna be in the 1% and live nicely, and have a good ole' heart transplant like that rich guy what's his name. And life extension, if that becomes available I wanna be able to afford it. The 99% won't be able to afford it. They'll be living in tents.

    What do you think? :D

    I always say (stole it from Layer Cake) - "Have a plan and stick to it!"

    So here's my plan to buy my way in.

    Started trying to make money online in 2013, life broken in 100 pieces scattered all over this dying planet. Just my lowest point ever, ever.

    Here's my progression (net profit):

    2013 - $1,300
    2014 - $3,600
    2015 - $4,400
    2016 - $8,500
    2017 - Made about $9,000 so far, will finish the year surely at $15,000+

    Now, as you can see, the trend is I'm increasing my yearly net income by 30-50% year after year. If I can continue that trend, things will go like this, give or take...

    2018 - $30,000
    2019 - $50,000+
    2020 - $100,000+
    2021 - 1%

    And I'll do another Layer Cake - "Remember son, the art of good business is being a good middleman!"

    First of all 80% of people want to be that "1%". Problem is that some people is lazy or learning one thing. They think like this if I started to learn this nishe, I need to say in here even if I will not earn money. This is my niche and that's it!

    But some times if you are not earning in that nishe, you need to change something, learn something new.

    I can see on your profile: Home Page: socialesale com This is 2013 hipetrain of that script where you can exchange social media likes. I launched same website same years, I can say It who's not successful so after about 3-4 years I tried other niche and I made about 30k euro in years.

    So this is my opinion.

    I'm not on drugs bro. Not good for your health, but I'd take the money any day before I'd ever go do drugs.

    Money is my drug of choice :)

    Realistically, you'll never be a part of the 1%.

    Hell, I'd love to be part of the 10%, let alone the 1% - half a million dollars a year puts you in the 1% region (I think?).

    Oh damn! I was under the impression that $130,000+ a year income (net) puts you in the 1%.

    But it seems you're right. according to some random site that's suspect if it can be trusted says "An annual salary above $506,000 puts you in the top 1%"

    Thanks for making my dreams 5 times harder to achieve. Thanks a lot buddy!!! :D

    But yeah, 10% would be acceptable too. It's like, aim for the sky, even if you fall short you'll still land on the moon or Mars and hang out with Elon or something :p

    Why are you putting the words in my mouth?

    I mean, I wouldn't want to be a billionare. But I wouldn't mind enough to never look at money again. Bout, 5000$ a month or sumthin? At the least.

    10% of americans do NOT earn 500,000 usd or more. That is 1 in 10 people, no way!

    The op has a more realistic idea of the top 1%

    Top 1% is irrelevant though, it's the top 0.1% that has serious dollar.

    Well, that is exactly what he stated. He never said that 10% of americans earn more than 500.000 USD.
    Don't know about you but I would call 500.000 USD/year serious dollar :D

    1% is 74 million people. That's a fuck ton of people.

    Which means it can't be impossible. It's not like you want to be in top 1,000 or top .00001%,which might take luck in addition to hard work.

    1% is a sure thing for anyone that does 16 hour days and never gives up.
