Book Giveaway: The Eventual Millionaire

by J. Money on Wednesday, February 26, 2014

eventual millionaire book

Got my hands on a sexy new book that just hit the shelves! It’s called, The Eventual Millionaire: How Anyone Can Be an Entrepreneur and Successfully Grow Their Startup, and it’s written by a cool friend and blogger of mine, Jaime Tardy. In fact, I’ve got TWO of them – which are both for you!

[A little known fact about Mrs. Tardy: She knows karate and can kick your ass. But she'd never do it cuz she's got the heart of gold - lucky for us ;)]

More known facts about Jaime:

  • She’s a business coach and speaker who helps entrepreneurs to achieve their goals
  • She’s the founder of EventualMillionaire.com, a site that features weekly millionaire interviews
  • She made her exit from the corporate world after finding herself $70,000 in debt and realizing that she hated her job. (16 months later she was rid of all that debt)
  • She once landed a prestigious guest post on one of the best blogs in the world: Budgets Are Sexy

What is an Eventual Millionaire?

An Eventual Millionaire is someone who knows they will be a millionaire, eventually. But they want to do it on their own terms—with an enjoyable life and an enjoyable business. Eventual Millionaires are everywhere, from the airplane pilot looking to start his own business for more freedom and money to a student looking to start her life on the right foot to a successful business owner needing inspiration and wondering how to take her business to the next level.

There are many ways to become a millionaire, but research has often shown that creating your own business is one of the best ways to build wealth. This book will lay the foundation for those looking to start their own business and work their way toward financial independence and a fulfilled life.

Inside the book:

eventual millionaire booksIt’s so new I haven’t even been able to read it yet! So there’s the gist from Amazon:

“Throughout the pages of this book you will learn how to take control of your money and your lifestyle, find work about which you are passionate, overcome your fears and excuses, start a viable business on the right foot, and keep moving forward despite the obstacles that will inevitably arise.

A highly regarded business coach who has interviewed over 120 millionaires, Tardy has used the insight she has gained from these successful professionals to create a resource that will teach you how to look at your work and your life from a new perspective—and how to achieve financial independence and happiness by doing work that you truly enjoy.”

BAM! Want it?

Answer this question below in the comments, and you’ll have yourself a sexy little entry here. Remember, there are TWO BOOKS up for giveaway, so take the time to enter – you’ve got double the chances of winning :)

What type of business/hustle/idea would you love help with?

It can be an idea or side hustle you’ve already started, or one you’re excited about and looking more into. Or perhaps you just want to learn more about millionaires and what makes them successful? That’s fine too. In that case just make up a business idea ;)  Leave your answer in the comments below, and we’ll pick the winners this Sunday night, March 2nd, using Random.org.

The other two are not sure what their side hustles are yet. :-)

I’d like to start a side hustle doing alterations! I love to sew and would like to make money doing it. I hear friends talk about paying $20 to get a pair of pants hemmed, $10 to have a button sew on (what???) or $75 to have a bridesmaids dress altered. I’m good at what I do but need to do better about getting the word out. I have 3 young girls and this is something I can do from home.

This looks like an excellent book. As for starting my own business, my college roommate and I with the help of his father that just retired are planning on starting a real estate firm in the near future.

Both of us are 23 and I personally and paying down my 25k student loan debt and trying to sack away some seed money, he just needs the seed money. Once we have some substantial money saved, the goal is to both get our license to sell (most likely in Florida) and then buy properties as investments, fix them up, and sell or market to rent.

I think this book can help us get there.

I have two:

1. Low carb baking. I lost over half my body weight on a low carb diet, and still stick to one religiously. As an avid baker and wannabe chef, I’ve adapted thousands of recipes so I never feel deprived. Most low carbers miss baked goods, and I’ve perfected cakes, cookies, pies, patries, you name it. I get rave reviews and would love to either package the items and sell them online, or open a low carb cafe, or just devote a website to altering recipes and trying them out so everyone can enjoy the low carb lifestyle with no sacrifices.

2. Mortgage qualifying assistance. This has been mulling around in my head for years! As a mortgage underwriter, I saw borrower after borrower who did not prepare for being approved. There are many, many steps you can take to ensure mortgage loan approval, but you need to be coached beforehand so you know which bills to pay, how much to pay on them, what to do about open collections, divorce issues, etc. I would love to help borrowers out in advance of them applying for a mortgage (or SBA loan, or whatever), so their chances of being approved would be dramatically increased without being ripped off.

I’ve been grateful to have had the opportunity in the past to help a life coach/business coach develop some of her online curriculum towards a course around accomplishing large life goals- SOOO much fun! Through this experience, I found how passionate I was for developing online curriculum/teaching/coaching. I’m currently a kindergarten teacher and plan on pursuing a principal/dean role at my current school after I complete graduate school. However, in the future I see myself in more of a hybrid role- working in education but running a side hustle on the side training/coaching/developing people- either 20 somethings and/or doing youth work around empowering young enterprenuers with their own side passions! This book looks AWESOME :)

Side Hustle: Teach others about UNIX and how to retire within 10 years.

It combines both my passions. UNIX and financial independence.

After 11 years as a UNIX Admin with a fortune fifty company; I started to focus more time on mentoring the newbies about UNIX than my daily duties. With this skill, one can quickly make $100K a year, no college degree needed. I would ensure the students obtains several UNIX certifications that employers are looking for and what specific tools/skills/knowledge will get them placed in that UNIX chair. My niche would be more than just landing them a good paying job, it would take it one step further by teaching financial acumen. Make that money, but don’t just blow it all!. The financial basics would be taught and monthly “check up’s” would be required. Keys points taught would involve, Paying off debt, Keeping, expenses low, Investing that surplus in high yielding assets, and Transitioning to early retirement.

I enjoy doing major remodels of the homes I have owned and over the past year started researching “green building science” and “net zero (energy made provides for energy used)” houses. I have been implementing those ideas into our latest remodel and have enjoyed it very much. It is a much more attention to detail way to build.

To answer the question of “What type of business/hustle/idea would you love help with?”

I hope to one day move away from my current career and into building or remodeling 1 spec house a year. These houses will showcase the green building ideas which will allow for substantially reduced energy bills as well as healthier indoor environments.

Even though I’ve worked hard to put tons of instruction on it already, it’s really still in the infancy stage. I want to keep it growing over the years. What I love most about your blog is the concept of slow growth, personal connection, and patience. What I’d like to do is grow my business organically and steadily while sharing my love of music and helping as many people as possible. It’s been extremely gratifying so far and I look forward to learning from others’ experience through your book. Thanks, and best of luck with your book launch!

I want to open an eco-friendly, bulk store that focuses on supplying daily-use items and natural foods from local manufacturers. Customers could bring their own containers and refill on things like laundry detergent, olive and other types of cooking oils, beans, nuts, spices, cocoa, coffee – just to name a few. The layout would look like a giant candy store with dispensers hanging on the wall to make it easy to fill your containers. I also want there to be space for two DIY test kitchens, where people can come in and use equipment to make their own natural products like laundry detergent, cleaning agents, etc. in one kitchen, and whole food baking products like nut butters and nondairy milks in the other.

I would like to start a side hustle of consulting people on how to organize. I’m an organized person, so I think it would be interesting to help others go through their junk and get it organized, too.

I would love to start a rental business – buying properties, fixing them up and renting out for a profit. I have a lot of research and saving to do before I start – thinking that 5 years is a good goal to make my first purchase.

It might not be a very profitable side-hustle but I’d love to put my HR skills to use and help veterans with their resumes and interview preparations!

I’m working on developing a patient care improvement blog and develop a side hustle speaking on health issues and treatment of patients. I think this could definitely help in developing a more cohesive plan.

I would love to be a budgeting coach for people with big financial goals/changes. For example, a recent grad whose student loans are about to kick in, or some one who would like to pay off a chunk of debt, or a person who would like to save for a particular goal.

I’m writing on behalf of my grand daughter. She’s 6 years old and is brilliant (literally – IQ of 155) but she is also suffering from some god-forsaken disease (eoe – google it. no one has ever heard of it unless they’re dealing with it). This kid could blog like nobody’s business, which would be a good thing for her since she’ll probably be house-bound in a year or two (maybe sooner, who knows).

My wife started her own jewelry design business. Well, is in the process of starting it. She designs and creates jewelry, she just doesn’t have the business side of it down. I’m afraid I’m not much help on that front. So she could use it.

My side hustle with my friend would be to provide transportation and translation services for Veteran senior citizens and/or retirees. We’d also pick up their medications and any groceries, take their pets for walks, etc. We just want to give back to people who’ve given so much to ensure the freedom we sometimes take for granted.
My personal side hustle is related to one mentioned above: I iron clothes for people. I am flabbergasted by what people will pay to have a shirt ironed – and I don’t even mind doing it!!! And of course I do small repairs (buttons, hems, etc); no big alterations because I’m not that gifted.
Some very cool and interesting ideas posted today – I especially like the tropical seeds (post a link!) and the free trade store.

Here goes nuthin’!
I have a site catinascauses.com that is going through a re-brand of sorts (soon to be anchored hope.org) Initially it was dedicated to utilizing the fine art of “couponing” to support local non-profits. This past year SOMEONE built a tribe (OK, it was me) and now I have this insane desire to take my posse and TURN.IT.UP.

I have come to the beautiful realization that with a revenue stream, we can totally kill it. Our goal is to be on the ground floor, as close to “direct-giving” as possible. I am fueled by seeing WHERE the donations go. Writing a check does nada for us…we want to be all up in it!

So, I am tossing around a few ideas but there is a T-shirt/hoodie/accesories , etc… clothing line that keeps me awake at night (which is terrible because I work full-time)….I have the design ideas but just don’t know how to make it HAPPEN.

BOOM. I put it out into the universe, let’s see if I win.
Catina :-)

Love this book already without even reading it ;)

and I would LOVE help with the below….

For myself, I’m actually on the comeback trail after growing crazy fast in the event industry in Europe, and then losing all the money I made faster tun I earned it. The reason was that I’d actually stopped listening to my heart, my gut. So…. now this little Aussie Battler is back in Australia, has done a lot of reflecting, and is right at the start of ‘boot strapping’ my new biz which is a little media platform for guys sharing ‘real’ info on life covering all kinds of topics, but theres no mention of ‘fast forwards, shortcuts, 6 minute abs etc’ just real content for real men. For me personally I’m also ‘finally’ budgeting properly and loving it, and can’t wait to watch my new biz grow organically and feeling great about sharing cool, cutting edge, real information. This book would be an epic help with my journey :)

Running coach, florist, estate sales, writing a book (even I’m rolling my eyes!), moving company, interior decorator, photographer –

I have plenty of ideas and things I’d love to be doing besides a typical 9-5 where you answer to the man .. Just can’t quite seem to get down to business though :/

See what I’m doing here? Trying to appeal to your mentoring side :D

I’ve also been toying with the idea of restarting a former business I had, but limiting the product line. My husband and I have been talking about starting up a business as well.

In a perfect world, someone would pay me to read books that I want to read. A girl can dream, right? :)

I need help selling advertising space on my car. I was driving around town and seen a Cadillac Escalade with magnetic signs on the door panels (advertisements) for a hip hop radio station in my state. I thought it was some famous rapper or an employee of the station. Nope…The station bought the signs and are paying them to just drive around as a moving billboard. I would love to get help with getting into that business, where do I start, who I contact, etcetera etcetera. I would like to sell space on my door panels, hood & trunk. Maybe the top too if I can get paid for it.
