Press play and I’ll read this juicy article to you!

“Millionaire”. That’s a word that I’ve seen splashed around the internet a lot lately.

Coaches and online entrepreneurs selling programs that show you how to “build a million dollar business”.

Rachel Rodgers has a new book on the shelves entitled, “We Should All Be Millionaires”.

Facebook and Instagram personalities bragging about their “multi-seven-figure business”.

Ugh. I’m so over it.

It’s not that being a millionaire or having a million dollar business is bad or anything…but what does that even mean?

Does it mean earning a million dollars a year? Is that gross or net? Or is it earning a million over a lifetime?

Does it mean having a million dollars worth of assets? Or property?

Are we talking about being a self-made millionaire? Or inheriting a million? Or winning a million in the lottery?

If we don’t have a good definition of what it means to be a millionaire, then how can we become one?

And, how do we know if we even WANT to be one??

Influential people are telling us we “should all be millionaires”…and I don’t know about you, but I pretty much hate when other people tell me what I should and shouldn’t do.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE money. I love making money, having money, and spending money.

But I don’t need a million dollars to be happy or have an AMAZING life or to consider my business successful….and you don’t need a million dollars to have an OMG-worthy life and business either.

Now, if you really want to make a million dollars this year – that’s awesome! If you know what you’ll do with the money once you have it – fantastic! If earning that million feels sexy and pleasurable – more power to you!!

But if you like having a smaller business…with fewer people on payroll…and less taxes to pay…and less stress than you’d have managing a million bucks…

…it’s definitely great to NOT want to be a millionaire.

The amount of money you earn, acquire, or invest doesn’t say a damn thing about the kind of person you are or the kind of business you have.

You don’t need a million dollars to be:

  • Awesome
  • Successful
  • Kind
  • Influential
  • Powerful
  • Generous
  • A high-earner
  • Rich

So, when you hear everyone telling you that you “should be a millionaire” and they’ll show you how to do it so you can join the “millionaire club”…go ahead and put your fingers in your ears and say “lalalalala”.

Do what you wanna do…want what you want…not what everyone else is saying is cool.

Know someone who needs to hear it’s ok to not strive for millionaire status? Share this and add a dose of positivity to their day.

P.S. If you’ve ever struggled with creating compelling offers, setting the right price for them, and/or talking with clients about how much you charge, I’ve got something in the works that will help. More details coming soon!
