How to become a millionaire in one year


Go online. You can make your money actively or passively like web design or Adsense. An active online business requires prospecting, sales and follow-up. Adsense is passive because your only requirement is to put the proper codes on your website.


Start a business. It doesn’t matter what wealth book you consult, they all say that if you want to be a millionaire you have to own your own company. The easiest business to start is one that is online. This does not require a lot of upfront cash or loans such as a brick and morter business would. Most people start more than one business such as an online store, website design or a service. Another great idea is selling information. People pay for information and even if some of the information may be free, people don’t want to have to search for it and will pay to have it all in one place.

The start-up that has online retail down to a tee


Glenn Tan turned his back on a career as a charted accountant to indulge his passion for t-shirts. Designing them was easy but the entrepreneur had to start his own business to sell them. 

After struggling to get his product in stores, Tan launched Tee Me Up in November 2012. The online marketplace brings together 51 different labels, making it a one-stop shop for t-shirt junkies.
