A lot of people throw around the word “millionaire” but when you look at the numbers it’s clear they are using a different definition of millionaire. My goal isn’t to trash talk business owners who call themselves millionaires, but to encourage you to be a savvy consumer—of both businesses and content—and to be aware of this when you’re looking at your own numbers and feeling like you’re behind. 

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • 02:07 - Why this industry needs a reality check
  • 11:29 - The difference between revenue and income
  • 13:04 - Understanding net worth
  • 17:17 - Not focusing solely on revenue
  • 18:47 - Why you should hold your industry to a higher standard
