Being a millionaires isn’t as hard as you think. In fact, thanks to Facebook going public, there are now about a thousand newly minted millionaires in the world. If you’d like to join their ranks, here are some things you need to know about becoming a millionaire:

  • First, they don't behave like they’re rich. In fact, a Fidelity Bank survey found that almost half of all millionaires don't feel wealthy. They worry about health care, and retirement, just like we do. 

  • Next, millionaires love a good bargain just like we do. Since most millionaires come from middle-class households and haven't been rich for longer than 15 years, they know how to be frugal. They spend with a middle-class mindset. They buy things on sale, hunt for bargains, and clip coupons. In fact, a Nielsen study found households with incomes over $100,000 a year tend to be heavier coupon users than those that don't make that much.

  • Finally, most millionaires didn’t do that well in school. According to the book, The Millionaire Mind, their average college GPA was 2 point 9, or a “B.” They say that the key to their success is hard work, determination, and being respectful to others. But don’t completely write off a good education, almost half hold an advanced degree. But for every Ph.D millionaire, they are several average Joes who worked their way up.
