    Hey guys,

    Been a while since ive been around here but my last journey thread over here which i blogged all about just over a year ago now took me from having NOTHING and having just 2 months to move country and pack up a van (that i had yet to rent) from France back to the UK!

    It resulted in me going from $0 and having just dropped $5,000 on coaching to making a CONSISTENT $100 a day within just 30 days!

    Now I'm back with BIGGER Goals, BIGGER Plans and here to share all with you :)

    This time im aiming even higher and going for the cool 1 million dollars a year!

    BUT don't worry this isn't going to take a full year before you actually see any results lol

    Ive already done a tonne of prep work for this and am a very fast worker when i knuckle down.

    The aim of this journey thread will be to basically highlight exactly what im doing, why im doing it and the science behind it all so if you want to do it yourself too then you can *would highly recommend you do*

    None of this is rocket science though and I know a tonne of you here are a LOT cleverer than I ever have or will be :)

    So anyhow... Here is the first blog post and i will keep this thread updated as i go along!

    ==> http://firststopim.com/road-to-a-million/road-to-a-million-breaking-it-down/

    Hope you enjoy it :)

    Thank you :)

    It's a HUGE goal but as i talk about in this post, breaking it down is a KEY part of making it manageable :)

    I will definitely be following this, the thought of $1,000,000 per annum is mindblowing.

    Just reading through the start of the blog link, and I don't think you are thinking it through right.

    you started AT the goal 1,000,000 and working DOWN from there. Rather than thinking of GOOD ideas and thinking UP to 1,000,000.


    In order to make 1,000,000 - which is a massive sum for anyone, you have to treat it like a BUSINESS, as tax and legal issues WILL bog you down.
    At this level you are looking at it on a professional scale. Let's pretend I was an investor (dragons den style (NOT the crappy US one)), I'd say...

    Ok wonderful figures, wheres the plan? whats the product? What are you going to sell? How? Whats the route to market? Scalability - will it be cost effective? 10 projects - do you have 50 hours a day? Ok so you'll outsource, that will reduce profits and increase risk? Month to month forecasts? Do you have a clear step by step plan you will follow?

    Once you have answered those (and 100s more I can't think of right now) all correctly I would then say you are beginning to get a plan together.

    Put it this way, I have spent months (actually years) planning one business - it has gone through 4 testing phases (all planned), and I have 4 more testing phases until i KNOW EXACTLY how everything will work. It has to be 110% airtight. Only then will begin to launch for real - to me $1m is no "easy" goal - even for millionaires.

    I may sound harsh, but take what I say in a constructive way.

    Appreciate you taking the time to leave such an in depth comment :)

    This first post was just a birds eye kinda overview, looking at different possibility's and solutions and making sure that even someone who has seen little or no success online could see that this could be possible for them too.

    A bit later on in the post (or possibly the 2nd one which is linked at the bottom) i go on to talk about the disadvantages of running 10 different projects as well as traffic sources and conversion rates/traffic needed.

    Product, Prices, How, Why, Where etc is all coming in an upcoming post :)

    To begin with i needed to establish the goal, break it down, work out the feasibility and then can plan my products around the numbers!

    Some people may work the other way around and start with the product and try and make it fit, but personally ive found this way a LOT simpler and easier :)

    No problem mate.

    The best advice I can give you is make sure you have a STUPID SIMPLE road map literally tracing every step every day and every week and every month. Without that it may be hard to reach $1m.

    Will be following the thread.

    Should be extremely interesting to see how this turns.
    I'm also on a journey, except my goal is in a smaller magnitude than yours, but all the same I wish you luck.
