How to become a millionaire from scratch, starting out with nothing.
I attended Add The Nitrous, Matt Lloyd’s live event held in San Diego September 27-30, 2012. There were 12 speakers, all of which were invited to make a presentation as long as they were officially “millionaires.” The question they were asked to present was on the premise of that they had no contacts and no money. What would they do or what would they do different to reach millionaire status?
All of the speakers were wonderful, informative, entertaining and provided loads of value. There was one speaker in my opinion who gave a stunning presentation. He didn’t offer anything to sell. It doesn’t matter if you have a dream to become a millionaire or not. His speech was more about mindset. He was the last speaker of the event and had the shortest speech length than any of the others, but it was a doozy! I have attended many of his webinars, purchased his products, and have great admiration for him as a person and a mentor. I’m sure most people know who he is if you are in the internet marketing business. His name is Mark Hoverson.
Mark gave one of the most powerful speeches I had ever heard. I want to share one section of his speech with my readers. Remember this is only one short part, but it is very thought provoking. The premise of his speech was how to become a millionaire from scratch and starting out with nothing.

If I was starting with nothing
I would number one, this is what I actually did, I told my wife,
“Honey, I’m going to be good for one walk around the block a day.
And don’t give me any BS.
Don’t give me any guilt.
Don’t ask me to do anything.
Don’t ask me to do any yard work.
Don’t ask me to day anything at all.
I am going to this basement and
I’m walking with the family around the block
one time per day until we are free.
And not rich.
See the difference?
Rich is a fools game.
Free is something worth everything.
It’s worth everything.
-to be with with whoever you want to be with.
Do whatever you want to do.
You know the drill here.
The first thing I would do…
Anybody garden out there? or plant? or have bonsai trees?
You have this plant and it has all this growth and everything.
But if you want a beautiful, strong, vibrant fruitful plant, what do you do with this plant?
You prune it.
You prune everything so all the vital resources can go only to the desired object,
which is, in this case becoming a millionaire, according to my assumption. Right?
So what I would do is I would cut off cable completely.
If I watched foothball, I would watch the 4th quarter.
If I had friends, they would see less of me until I was free.
And then I would have friends all over the world on command,
coolest friends that can do anything they want whenever they want.
We can do anything we want.
We can go anywhere we want.
So I would say friends?
As much as before?
Not until I’m free.
I would cut off all spending.
I would tell my wife, (the fortunate thing is we didn’t have a lot of money to freeze, I called it a freeze).
and throughout three years I would tell her “We’re on a freeze.”
You know what a freeze is?
It means nothing.
It mean no kid’s haircuts.
It means no pedicures.
It means no nothing.
It means nothing but business.
Every penny is in my business.
Am I speaking the truth?
Do you guys feel it?
I would do nothing except put money into my business.
I go to church.
You have to give your 10% to God.
I was in the hole.
I was doomed.
You pay your taxes with your tithe to God on increase only.
So now I’m able to whip out $20,000 donation to a bible camp
-but I didn’t tithe for three years
because I didn’t have the numbers.
See what I’m saying?
Socially, all my friends they watched Survivor.
They watched football.
I’d say, “I’ll be there about the 4th quarter”
because I’m working.
If I’m not working, I’m reading.
There is a verse from King Solomon wrote that generally says:
The hand of the industrious will rule.
The hand of the diligent, the industrious, the busy, the hustler will rule, will lead.
They will lead cultures.
They will lead politics.
They will lead religion,
They will lead education.
They will lead entrepreneurship.
They will lead the internet.
The hand of the industrious will rule.
They will lead everything.
They are the culture bearers.
They literally put culture on their back.
We dictate the technologies that we release to the masses, the education, the platforms.
We rule my friends.
The hand of the industrious rules.
But the hand of the negligent man, the slothful (there are many variations of this verse)
That hand, do they get a free ride?
The hand of the negligent will be put to Forced Labor
…meaning nine to five, two weeks of vacation if you’re lucky.
You will be exerting yourself at the maximum psychic energy you have.
You have the capacity for mental thought, feeling, emotion, and life.
And it is driving at full force at all times.
Here’s what it’s going to be doing.
It can go towards industry, hustle, work, giving it everything you got.
It’s all you got, but it’s all going toward industry.
Or if you are not going to be a ruler you are going to be put to Forced Labor
Forced labor is all you mental energy.
All your emotions.
All your psychologys are going to be forced on
How am I going to pay the bills this week?
How am I going to make my Grandmas funeral because I can’t quite afford it?
How am I going tell so and so “No we cant do it?”
How am I not going to get this for my my kids, my wife?
You will exert all your energies dealing with this BS
-instead of dealing with ruling.
There is no escaping it though.
It is going to be operative 100% in both directions.
You get to choose industry?
This is a lifestyle not of freedom.
That’s why when I say you get to choose,
I don’t say rich.
I say free
Isn’t this unbelievable to think about?
How would I start over and become a millionaire?
Every bit of energy would go toward industry.
I would become completely obsessed with value creation.
Not necessarily collecting the dollar but creating a financial
transaction where the money was lighter than the value that I offer.
This is such a simple game. Sigh
At the end of this segment, his sigh was a very long. There is an incredible concept about what Mark Hoverson talked about during this speech. This was only the beginning! From that point, he lays out the exact foundation of what he did to become a millionaire starting out with product creation. This is only one small section, but it impacted me greatly. Leave a comment if you found this piece to be of value and remember what he said, Isn’t this unbelievable to think about?
Who were the other millionaire speakers?
