Hacking The Money Game (A Millionaire’s Advice)

I’m sharing with you some advice that a millionaire mentor of mine shared with me back when I was 18 years old.

You can either enjoy the video below or read the article. All that matters is that you digest this information and then hack the money game.

He took me under his wing for a short amount of time. And during that time he started planting seeds in my mind that I didn’t really understand at the time because I lacked experience.

But over time as I gained experience, I started understanding the different things that I taught me. And so the purpose of this video is for me to be able to convey that message and experience to you. That you can understand it and so I can plant those same seeds in your own mind.

The millionaire’s name was Mr. Aucoin.

One day as I was sitting in his living room Mr Aucoin was like, “Dylan how often do you get paid?” And I was like, “I get paid every two weeks.” He was like, “Great. So would you say you spend money every day?” To which I said, “Oh yeah, I hang out with friends, I’ve got bills, and I go out to eat.” And he was like, “Okay, cool. So you’re broke?”

I tried to argue with him, but to make a long story short, yes, I was broke. And the reason for that was because I only got paid twice a month.

I mean really think about that for a second. In a 30 day period, most people only get paid twice a month. Yet you’ve got money going out daily.

In my case I was working a simple job at the time, but I had money going out week after week after week.

The reason that you and I accept this reality is because we’ve been trained ever since we can remember to trade money for things that we want.

For lack of better words, we’ve been brainwashed.

Now don’t get it twisted. Buying things is 100% okay. The problem only comes up when we’re relying on 1 income stream that only pays twice a month.

Because the reality of this world is that most people don’t make enough money to keep up with their spending.

Heck, most people don’t even have a $1,000 in their savings account.

The key difference between me now vs my old self is that I’ve got multiple streams of income. That means that I get paid week after week, after week, after week, after week, after week.

So even though I’ve got money going out, I’m not broke anymore. While I’m not balling, I don’t have to worry about money anymore.

You see, back in the old days I’d have money going out daily, but during the gap period between paychecks I didn’t have any money coming in.

Now though, I’ve got money coming in from my online projects. I’ve got stuff coming in from the properties that I take care of. And this whole multiple streams of income concept is something that I want you to understand because once you understand this, your financial reality is going to change forever.

You’re not going to be broke anymore or have money issues. So while you’ve got a job right now, and I know you do.

You probably get paid every two weeks, which is perfectly fine. But let me show you how you can leverage your job to make you more money.

I’ve taught a lot of other people this concept, and they’re starting to see results from it. Now I want you to understand this because once you understand it, you’re not going to have trouble with money anymore.

Once you’ve done it, you’ll share this with your family, your friends, and their financial reality is going to be changed. All because you read this article and decided to take control of your money situation.

So you get paid every two weeks. Here’s what I want you to do. I want you to find a way that you can start making money in between that time, regardless of your paycheck. That way you’ll have your paycheck coming in, let’s say it’s $900 every two weeks.

Maybe it’s a little bit less.

Maybe it’s a little bit more.

The number doesn’t matter. Let’s just keep this simple.

You’re going to use that money to pay your bills etc, but you’re going to take some of that money and start putting it into things that will make you money. And you’re probably thinking….

“Well, duh, that’s common sense, but how do I start making more money outside of a job?”

Well, there’s things like affiliate marketing, eBay, and a hundred different things. My personal favorite is Craigslist, and why do I like craigslist?

I like Craigslist because you can make money from it without having a lot of money upfront. You can literally go to the free section on Craigslist right now and find items that you can pick up for free and then turn around and list them on Craigslist and sell them for pure profit.

Take a look at this student of mine.

He went from $0 to $800 in 1 week….

If you’re interested in strategies and a step by step process, my Craigslist Profit Accelerator covers it all A-Z.

But you could literally go to Craigslist right now and follow the these steps to get paid by the end of the week:

  • Get free items and then turn around and take pictures of them.
  • List them on Craigslist
  • And make money.

The reason I can tell you that with such certainty is because that’s what I did for a year and a half straight so that I didn’t have to go and work a job.

That’s what the guy above did and I’ve got another student who made $200 with literally four hours of work.

$200 four hours of work ain’t bad, especially since he was in full control of his time. Furthermore with Craigslist you don’t have to wait months before you get paid like most other online hustles are.

They literally followed what I laid out in the course, got an item, sold it on Craigslist and made pure profit.

So if they can do it, if I can do it, I sure as heck know that you can do it as well. So here’s what I want you to do.

This is my challenge for you….

Even though you’ve got your paycheck coming in, I want you to take that money and I want you to start leveraging it and finding other ways that you can make money regardless of your job.

If you can do this, I promise you that you’re never going to be broke again. You’re going to have money coming in.

And you’re going to actually start being able to save money for once. You’ll have money sitting around that you can use to make you more money.

This money is what will bring you freedom.

Whatever it is that you want, you can do it if you just follow this simple system. It’s common sense to me now and it’s common sense for a lot of other people that are enjoying freedom. But you and I literally have been taught and programmed to basically just be consumers.

While I love buying things, there are other things that I love even more.

I love being able to travel.

I love being able to control my time.

I love not having to sit in traffic day in and day out.

What I love the most is my freedom and freedom comes from money. Think about the American flag for a second.

It represents freedom and capitalism. That represents capitalism to me. Both of those things are granted to those who have money.

Once your money is in order, you’re going to be able to do what you want. You’re not even going to have to worry about money even though you’ve got a job.

Because you’re going to have money coming in week, after week, after week. And that my friend is how you hack the system.

The system teaches people just to be consumers and to rely on going to work to trade their time for money and that system works.

While that model works, as a reader of mine, I want you to hack the system. Once you start hacking the system, that’s when your life changes.

There’s no other way for your life to change until you start understanding how reality works and then you hacking it.

And so you’re going to hack reality, you’re going to let everybody else just settle with getting paid every two weeks and complain about being broke.

Instead of trying to convince them to change via theories, you’ll be able to show them via your new life.

In high energy.

Your friend,

Dylan Madden
