How to live like a multi- millionaire on the minimum wage

Greed is Good

Many books have been written about how to become a millionaire. Very often they tap into the secret personal traits you need to acquire to reach these heady heights. Well guess what: they are all trying to prevent you from finding out the real secrets. After a careful study of a wide range of multi - millionaires, I can finally reveal the real personal traits you must adopt. So, you too can live like a multi - millionaire. Yes, even if you are on the minimum wage. Remember this information is based wholly on real case histories of multi-millionaires. You may even recognise some of these super rich dudes.

1. Always remember that "greed is good". That "eye of the camel bible nonsense " is for suckers.

The meek are never gonna inherit the earth. They will remain dirt.

2 Treat all others as your inferiors. Think like an egomaniac.

3 Surround yourself with a*** lickers to make you feel superior.

4 Develop poisonous relationships with family and friends.

Think of them as blood suckers.

5. Look to receive presents and free gifts. Do not give out presents. Think like scrooge.

Only get involved with charities if you can make a profit.

6.Try to spend as little of your own money as possible. It's fine to spend other peoples money.

7 Haggle over every financial transaction until your adversary caves in.

8 Sink to the lowest level of depravity.

9 If you are an older woman , get yourself a toyboy.

10 If you are an older man get yourself a trophy girlfriend or wife.

11 Do not under any circumstance develop a conscience.

12 Try to join secret societies that involve dressing up , or even better, go in for weird ritualistic practices.

Now, I am not suggesting that every multi - millionaire has followed this blueprint. Some are much more ruthless , whilst others have led exemplary lives. Nevertheless, this scientific study has uncovered a lifestyle enjoyed by many infamous multi- millionaires. Do you still want to live this way? Cos you certainly can, even on the minimum wage.

Don't forget that you can also choose to be a recluse. This is the lifestyle choice of many a multi - millionaire.

Please feel free to add to this list if you have discovered other millionaire secrets.

You have made an excellent point. Everyone has the ability to be a greedy jerk. On the flip side, one of my favorite quotes is: "the richest person in the world is the one with the fewest felt or imaginary needs." In other words, he who is the most content is the wealthiest of all people.

Love that quote ecog. Might add that to this very rough draft of a hub. Thanks for your input.

Then there is always the tried and true: do something that is extremely useful for your community and society. Like invent Windows or something.

WTH, Now I am depressed. I live like a recluse, why am I not a multi-millionaire yet? :)

seanorjohn 5 years ago Author

James, thanks for your input.Inventing stuff is certainly a genuine way to riches.It is the lifestyle choices you make that then determine how you live.

Whikat, you jumped the gun. First you make the money and only then do you choose to live as a recluse. Yours is simply a case of bad timing.

I too live like a recluse, and yet my bank account is way below the millionare level. Dang I am doing something wrong. Perhaps I need to become even more reclusive?!

seanorjohn 5 years ago Author

But cbrider, how many of the 12 steps did you carry out before you became a recluse? You just can't take short cuts. Get back out there and give it another try.

Funny suggestions. Am sure you could come up with even more if you wished. Wealth except in love and friendships does not equate to happiness...but it would be fun to have the option. Ha!

Thanks peggy, I agree it would be good to have the option.I think I could handle it. Perhaps amillionaire would swap lifestyles for a year. I am open to offers.

Awesome Hub! My favorite was #12. Hey, lets set up a 30 foot owl and go make a bonfire and make fun of all the poor people! Great job. Voting Up!

Thanks JS' I know from reading your hubs that you are only joking about poor people. Times are hard and this hub hopefully shames those rich b's who make life harder for the ordinary folk.


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 5 years ago from Massachusetts, USA

Yes, I was being sarcastic! It is a shame how the wealthy 1% has everything! Imagine if they shared just 1% of their wealth? That would never happen!

JS. I knew you were having a laugh- same as me. But surprisingly some people can read it differently. I know from your brill hubs that your heart is good. I was just making sure that I didn't get you into bother.Thanks for your great reply.

Truthfornow -I'm still a bit concerned at the guy who voted this hub up as useful. Dread to think what evil deeds I have led him into.

Hi Elza, don't forget to make your fortune before you retire to your den.

Frugal family. You are ,of course, right, there are many genuine reasons to live a frugal life. Your hub clearly point to them. Unlike my jokey hub.

This is so sad, but very true. I know many people who remain weathly by acting like this. I consider my wealth my friends and family so I don't have much money.. lol. Great hub. I love your dark sense of humor!

That is ridiculous. How can you say this is "useful tips" and how can you be a level 8 commentator? Nice info? Do you just write comments like this and get hub points.

Greed? My worst enemy! I would rather be average, but generous than wealthy and selfish

That is a good way to live Otis. Generosity and kindness are underrated virtues.

Well, I wish I had the luxury of living like a multi-millionaire ;)

Actually, I've met multi-millionaires and by-and-large, at least here in Southern California, they're very low key. I had no idea they were so rich until I saw their house or car. Voting this Up and Interesting.

The sad truth is, this information is very correct. I guess I would rather not live like a millionaire... although I would mind have a few extra bucks in my wallet! :)

Hmm.. while this is true in its own snarky way, it sure doesn't make it seem like an appealing life style. I couldn't be a scrooge. You have an interesting sense of humor. :)

Hi Tammy. Some describe my humour as interesting whilst others describe it as perverse and others ......... Thanks for visiting.

Well, you've ruined my day right proper. I always wanted to be a millionaire; you've just explained that I never will as I don't follow even one suggestion.

I am doomed, and it is all your fault. You could have snuck in at least a couple like helping people out, or being generous. But no, you've left me no hope at all of ever being rich. I am doomed.

I'm on my way! I've got number nine ticked (hubby is 12 yrs my junior). But I don't think the rest are going to happen before I turn 500.

I like living modestly and if I ever became rich by winning the Lotto, (which would be a miracle since I never enter), I would want to give most of it away to those less fortunate. I have one to add to your list though:

Convince the President or Prime Minister of your country to start a war in an oil rich country by pretending it is a world threat.

Ensure the Government hires private contracting firms to assist with the war effort and rebuilding. Ensure you own the firms first.


seanorjohn profile image

seanorjohn 3 years ago Author

Hi Wilderness I bet you could come up with the right way to become a millionaire. The trouble is your kind nature would quickly reverse the process.

Tinsky congrats on finding a toyboy but you still have more boxes to be ticked.

You nailed it. Now, who would want to be a multimillionaire?


seanorjohn profile image

seanorjohn 3 years ago Author

Hi Anita. Being a multimillionaire is certainly not a goal of many good people. Billionaires on the other hand. Only kidding.

This hub offers some very funny advice. But if I, for one, came anywhere near one of these people, I'd think I'd reach for the nearest can of insecticide or a very sharp knife - and do everybody a favor. Later!


seanorjohn profile image

seanorjohn 3 years ago Author

Wow Kosmo that sure makes your position clear. Thanks for thevisit.


Au fait profile image

Au fait 3 years ago from North Texas

Voted up and interesting. Some very insightful info here. In fact a lot of people do live like millionaires (even though they aren't), they just didn't realize it. I think most people are focused on the 'stuff' millionaires have rather than their character traits and behaviors. Maybe people are so blinded by the glitter and gold that they do not see the bilge. ;)
