Internet Millionaires - A reality or fantasy?

Malaysia
March 4, 2007 7:32pm CST
I have seen this phrase many times. Magazines, newspapers, online advertisements, etc, etc. The truth is that is it for a minority of lucky ones or what. There are many coaches outside claiming their debut as successful net millionaires. I believe they have made it. Is this a reality for others as well just like any other businesses? What do you think? Can you name some successful internet millionaires around?

A friend of mine in Europe came up with a silly idea about 5 years ago and he was broke so he did not have the 1000 dollars to get a website build. He asked everyone he knew about investing a few hundred bucks into his idea. Everyone kept telling him that it was a stupid idea that he had. Finally he found a student from college who knew web design and he received 50% of future earnings for his time and effort in building a website which had no more then 20 pages. Five years later, everyone is trying to copy my friends idea now because it was a gold mine. He makes a profit of nearly 2 million dollars a year (thats only his part) and the guy who made the original design also gets 2 million dollars. The idea was so basic and silly that no one would help him out and now everyone is saying: "Why didn't I lend him those couple of hundred dollars, I would have been rich by now." You can really see how your friends are in times of need, I am happy my mate remembers their auctions and he is a very happy and wealthy internet millionaire.

I think it's possible but it will take a lot of time and hardwork. The problem with the net is that there are more scammers than there are legitimate online opportunities. This has created a lot of frustration and false hope on the part of would-be online earners. I know of a few who are actually earning through the net, although not yet in the million dollar figure, but enough to be able to live comfortably. Some even started as a hobby and ending up as a business. So I think it is possible.

I believe that if there are no scammers, there may be a lot of internet millionaires. Maybe, come to think of it, lots of the internet millionaires are scammers and vice versa. Still, I want to believe that this is not a dream. Besides, reality begins with a dream.

Maybe, if there are no scammers and only the legitimate ones remained, then, competition will be very stiff. So it will still boil down to a lot of hardwork. I share your vision and dream. I believe it is possible but only with a lot of hardwork and persistence.

In this field, I think creativity plays the most important role to achieve success. Provided that the person is equipped with adequate internet knowlege, he then would have to manipulate the knowledge to get the maximum benefit. I am very fond of a couple of internet millionaire in Malaysia. They are Irfan Khairi and Akmal Ariff. Both of them succeeded from the internet business. As for Gobala Krishnan, I think he is on his way to success. I wish I could be like them one day.

i don't really believe in internet millionaires... i think it is just a fantasy... if not, it is only for certain lucky people... i believe that we have to work hard and earn every single cent that we make... there is no free or easy money in this world unfortunately... i never believe in that...

Yes I think it can happen. People could trade stock over the net, they could start ver successfull businesses over the net. There is so many ways to make money on here and most of them really simple. The problem is you just have to know the difference between good ones and scams. It also helps to think of somehting original.

I think this phrase comes true for those who are the founder of the system. You just sit and join with or without investment, but the mlm says you cannot be get quick rich without any effort. And your effort will help the persons who are the starter of the websites like youtube, etc. I joined modicare with 1900/- in which I was told that I have to use the products. There is nothing with referal system. But After two months I spent 5000/- purchasing the products and the persons who benefitted are the owner of the company and some of their relatives. When I ask them where is my commission they say there is no person to your downline and then after I put hands on my ears not to go to mlm systems.

I believe that there are a few. But there are far more who claim to be Millionaires that probably do not have a pot to piss in, just trying to scam you into one thing or another.

With the paper money era in place, its really possible to make money from the internet. of cos, I don't really mean big money with sites like My lot. They are totally diferent types of websites. To make money from internet, the person must first have the basic idea that can work. My Lot is a great idea from the developers who also know that sharing is a great way to increase income. Other sites make use of the internet to sell. Ask the my lot developers if they are millionaires yet, if not, how long do they think it will take. cheers

haha... that's right. there have alot of that. but they still success on that. why?? because every single years, the statictis show % of increments user who are start using the internet. they can be a millionaire because every single people want information to solve their problems. if i give ytou a situation, you have a problem about money. you need to pay for car, house, credit card, for your family, and your salary only $2000-3000. after you calculate, your salary is not enough for all that. next a few days you get some information via internet where offer you to design a website and they will give you $300-500 per website(assume that you are expert on that are). then you are able to finish that in 3 days per website. how much you earn per month?? that is the example if you work for other people. but how about if you sell your experience to other people via e-book, and every e-book you get $60. in one day you get 50 customer. huhu. think about that. the point is, user in the internet will never decrease but increase like mylot population on the left handsite of you. after a few minutes, it will change. hehe.. :)

I think you can succeed in any trade. You need skills, knowledge, LUCK, etc. Internet millionaires are just those people who have made millions due to the internet - nothing really great, just a little fanciful... there are millionaires in so many other industries. Just look around the big names in the IT world. You don't even need to think too hard for examples. :P

I think it's possible but it will take a lot of hardwork. It's more like the the business world out there. It will take a lot of time, persistence and hardwork, and maybe a little luck. The problem with the net is that there are more scammers than there are legitimate business'. That's why a lot of frustrations comes in from those who really want to earn legitimately online.

I believe some of them are true but believe that some of them are scams to make you believe you can win big . I don't know anyone personally or even know someone who knows someone personally who ever won big off the internet . But I have heard of people winning small prize amounts playing different games and I have recieved money from different games but like I said nothing big .
