After a tough couple of years, membership in the million-dollar club is on the rise, according to an August 2012 article.

These savvy consumers did not win lotteries or game shows, or simply inherit wealth. They mastered specific strategies that include not only investment steps but critical lifestyle choices. 

They may have held one or more of the 20 “Millionaire Maker” stocks, used the “Step Down Principle,” and never believed in common myths such as “It’s too late to start.” 

FCS professional Dr. Barbara O’Neill has tracked the research, studied the habits of millionaires, explored the ties between wealth and health, and developed 20 research-based wealth accumulation factors that can work for anyone, at any age. She will share the results of her work at this webinar.

In just 90 minutes, you will learn how to: 

  • Calculate the amount of money needed to become a millionaire
  • Benefit from the awesome power of compound interest over time
  • Understand the impact of lifestyle choices (e.g., health habits) upon personal finance
  • Teach others the research-based characteristics of millionaires
  • Find and use resources for educators and consumers (e.g., online financial calculators)

Through the research presented, you will learn how to apply the information from this webinar to your own personal financial planning decisions….and show others how to do the same. Take away the latest statistics and research you can incorporate into your own presentations.

Building a healthy income for life is a positive step that can increase one’s general well being as well as longevity.  By toning the right muscles and adhering to a clear strategy, anyone can have a real chance to be the millionaire next door.

Forget the game shows like “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”  Learn how to become one.  Register now!
