101 ways to make a million

A while ago I accidentally came across this tiny little book.  It’s tiny, but it’s got big wisdom inside it’s pages.

101 Ways to make a million written by Tanya Jovanovski is filled with stories about ordinary people who had an idea and acted upon it and made huge fortunes.  It’s like she says inside the book, “a plan without action is worth nothing”.

Inside the book there is a Chines Proverb I like very much, it goes: “Man who say it cannot be done should not interrupt man doing it”.

There is quite a few stories inside the book that just blew my mind.  Let me share a few examples with you

“I arrived in South Africa from Kent, and realized that South Africans love gambling, so I launched a website where South Africans could play the UK Lottery”

Forget about the theory that only people with wealthy relatives and/or university degrees make money.  Aristotle Onassis had neither, and with a mere $200 embarked on a career that made him one of the richest men who ever lived.”

This is just two examples of 101 Ways To Make A Million, and many of the stories made me think to myself that I could do that…

About Me…

Welcome to my site, its awesome having you here.  I am Marlene W and I am a lover of books and reading books.  I especially love second hand books.  For some reason second hand books seem to have a history, character, a little part of every reader it’s had.  A little part of every hand it’s every touched.

My goal, my dream is to inspire the world.  To make the world a better place for as many people as I can reach.  Life is awesome, some of us just don’t know it yet.

I have read some amazing books, by extraordinary authors and speakers whom has inspired me especially in times when I felt like I was drowning in life.  I battled with depression and insecurities most of my life, but I have found strength through books which has lifted me, inspired me and helped me to grow and overcome most of life’s challenges.

Every one of us, you and me, we have greatness within us.  I am a firm believer that anything is possible.  I am capable of achieving anything I want to achieve, and that success is only a decision away.

I am in the very fortunate position to be able to read books for a living.  Yes, you read correctly, I read books, write reviews, post them on this site of mine here and there you have it, this is my job.  And I have to say it’s a dream come true, I enjoy every minute of every day doing my perfect job :-)))

I learned how to do all this from The Wealthy Affiliate University.  Feel free to take a look in case you might be interested to do something similar.  Maybe you have a passion you would also like to share with the world too.

Otherwise feel free to contact me, I love getting e-mails, marlenew@confessionsofareadaholic.info
