We all dream of becoming the next millionaire or even billionaire. But how likely is this, what do you need to succeed and who should you look to as an example of success? In the past, we might have turned our attention to Mark Zuckerberg, but with his empire quickly crumbling around him, perhaps that’s not the best idea. The truth is, there are a lot of young men and women who make their millions in their prime, and you never know their name. Why is this? Well, let’s look at the first way to get rich quick when you’re young.

Work Your Fingers To The Bone In University

If you are a high academic achiever, you’ll be able to get into a top university, but you haven’t achieved anything at that point. Once you’ve done this, you need to make sure that you are gaining solid grades all the way through your higher education to the point where you get a First when you leave. Next, complete a second degree or a post-grad to ensure that your CV has some spice. Once you have done this, you will be primed for headhunting. Businesses will find you before you even leave college and hire you into the company. Now, for your first couple of years, you’ll be making an average wage with great benefits.

If you keep on working your fingers to the bone, then in five years you’ll be able to move forward and work towards partnership. Top individuals in corporate businesses can earn millions a year, and that’s before they hit thirty. This isn’t the easiest option, but it’s these individuals who you will never hear the names of. They are the one per cent who were rich but never famous.

Forget The Rat Race, Build The Maze

Alternatively, you might want to think about setting up your own company. It’s easier than you think to do this and cheaper too. Even a company registration is completely affordable and probably costs less than the total amount currently in your wallet. The problem is that this is just the beginning. After that, you have to make your business profitable, and this will take a lot of time, effort, and a large dose of luck. But you wouldn’t be the first one to achieve this dream in your twenties, and you definitely won’t be the last.

Win The Online Lottery

Alternatively, you can think about working to build up a social profile online and turn it into a profitable business venture. Logan Paul, Jeremy Jahns and Jenna Marbles are all examples of these fine individuals, and you’ll notice they were all quite young when they started. Now, none of them are billionaires but they can probably afford to buy your parents’ homes ten times over, and that’s not too bad. The problem is that there are so many people these days working towards that same goal that it is a bit like winning a lottery.

How can you push the odds in your favour? Well, being attractive will help. No, we’re not joking. Studies actually show that the beautiful do actually have an easier life getting a decent income and are more likely to become rich at a young age. You also need a hook, a USP, something that separates you from the rest. We can’t tell you what this is but we can say, you’ve either go it, or you don’t.

As you can see then, you do need a little luck to make millions before you hit thirty and a lot of determination. But it is possible that the next Doogie Howser-type millionaire could be reading this right now, oblivious to the exciting life that lies ahead of them.
