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.
