How Many Years Does it Take to Become a Millionaire?

I hear a lot of people throw around the term “overnight success”. And, for the most part, I think it’s complete nonsense.

See, while the internet has certainly made it possible for a few lotto winners to from $0 to $1b, for the majority of people who’ve achieve monetary success, it took decades

Not everyone goes from idea to IPO in months.

Behind (nearly) every success is years, and years of hard work. And to prove my point, I create a doc that shows this.

The CEO Doc

After reading the book Mastery by Robert Greene I’ve been obsessed with the idea of apprenticeships. The book is pretty long, so I’ll sum it up in a sentence or two:

Successful people, (and “geniuses”) are folks who have mastered their craft. To master your craft, you must study intensely for 5 to 10 years…so basically, an apprenticeship.

In the book, Greene tells the stories of Darwin, Einstein, and Ford…but I’d thought it’d be cool to create what I call The CEO Doc, which shows exactly how long it takes to be an overnight success:

Interesting points about The CEO Doc:

  • Andrew Mason and Jeff Bezos skyrocketed to success
  • Jack Dorsey has been programming for a long, long time
  • The magic age to start something amazing looks to be 27

Anyway, give it a read and check out Mastery.

  1. I have been searching for this info for a long time. About two and a half hours of continuous finding, luckily I saw that in your web site. I wonder why Yahoo do not show this kind of informative sites in the first page. Usually the first few websites are junks. Maybe it’s time to use other search engine.

  3. Thanks for your publication. I also think laptop computers have become more and more popular lately, and now are often the only sort of computer used in a household. It is because at the same time that they’re becoming more and more reasonably priced, their processing power is growing to the point where they can be as highly effective as pc’s from just a few years ago.
