If You’re Making Less Than $83,334 Per Month, Adjust

Million Dollar Adjustment

Now depending on who’s reading this, that could sound like an impossible number.  Of course, $83,334 a month puts you right at a million a year.  Hence the weird amount.

But I’m serious.  With the internet at your fingertips, there’s zero reason you can’t make at least that much, in time.  Which makes me sound like a snob, but (a) becoming a millionaire is the whole point of this website and (b) it’s the truth.

So if you’re missing the mark, why not adjust?  Tweak your offer, your angle, your price, your process, your people.

Anything.  Something.  Am I right?

Because, sure, it’s easy to shrug your shoulders and think, “Welp, I tried.  Nothing more I can do.  Guess I just wasn’t meant to be a millionaire.”

And then blame everyone (customers, competitors, Google, the gosh darn government) and everything (your niche, seasonality, inflation, the weather, terrorist attacks, Trump’s hair) for your inability to make the monies.

That’s the natural response because it protects your ego and keeps you from having to change your ways.  But ask yourself: is pride and comfort more important than learning and improving and the millions in revenue you’re literally leaving on the table?

For me, no, it wasn’t.  So with each plateau, I pivoted.  I changed taglines and target audiences; moved from products to services; raised my prices; tested new ads; took risks; admitted when I was wrong; kept learning; studied millionaires; modeled them; took full responsibility; and refused to settle.

Before long, I had my first $83,334 month.  And less than a year after that, I had my first $100,000 day.

My point is: if you’re willing to make the sucky, scary, stressful adjustments?  A million dollar pace is not that far away.  But if you continue doing business as usual, you’ll never catch it.
