How to Drive on The Road to Reach $60 Million

It’s an average day for you and you’re just scrolling on Instagram. You see Louis Vuitton skins, voluptuous models in mink coats, business tycoons surrounded by stacks of cash and the classic pretentious couple in some exotic hotel in Switzerland or Bali. Any onlooker would wonder how these people got to this part of the world which every human being wants. Who wouldn’t want to know how to get to the upper echelon and live their best life? Being able to pay for anything and not being neck-deep in debts and financial problems is a huge blessing. However, all great things require sacrifice and relentless hard work.

People come up with all kinds of ideas on a daily basis. Nobody wants to take the backseat in the race to survival in this world. There is so much competition that if you don’t have any skill or talent to add to the game, then you are going to be the spectator under the bleachers. There is no shame or vanity when it comes to having a high ambition. Reality may limit our possibilities but if we don’t dream big then we can’t push past the limits of our reality. This is the way the world works.

What is a reality today was once a dream. So what you first need to do in order to get to the hotshot millionaire status is by recognizing your strengths and weaknesses. Once you have mastered self-awareness, begin to take interest and pursue different fields of study that have immense demand in the market today and are heavily paid for as well. It is only after you have experimented thoroughly will you know where your heart belongs and what kind of skill comes naturally to you.

We always wish that there could be someone out there who could mentor us towards having the leanest entrepreneurial techniques and to groom us into a person that knows how to get to the top and remain there. That happens through networking a lot and being in a lot of places at once. We would share the success story of an American producer, entrepreneur, musician, and songwriter Michael Blakey. He is a hardworking, dynamic and charismatic man who delved into every field of business when he was in London. At just 19 years old, Blakey got appointed as the resident producer of Hansa Studios in Berlin. After working in more companies and fields, Blakey became the Managing Director of Maserati UK Ltd. Wanting to pursue more options in America, and his ambition still soaring, Michael Blakey came to the States and began his own record label named Platinum Records. In 1999, he co-founded the label 2K Sounds which got him working with a handful of notable artists. The label grew quite large and was acquired by Virgin Records America and Blakey was made President of the Record Division. He wanted to pursue his passion for music and combine it with his polished entrepreneurial skills and he made another record label with Comedian Ron White. Blakey is also a certified marksman and has a Fixed-Wing aircraft pilot’s certification from both the Federal Aviation Administration and Civil Aviation Authority. He is a member of the Institute of the Motor Industry from England and is licensed to drive Formula 1 race cars as well as RAC Rally vehicles. He also supports cancer organizations and charity forums around the world. Today, Michael Blakey is worth $60 Million.

It was not a simple road as you can see. Necessity is the mother of invention.
