Praise for The Eventual Millionaire

"Step one to becoming a millionaire: read this book. Step two: quit your job. Don't worry, step two will be a lot less intimidating after you complete step one."
—Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup

"Perhaps it's time to end the cult of celebrity around people merely because they've acquired a bunch of money. Jaime Tardy demystifies not just the process of earning money, but far more important, the emotions around it."
—Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception

"This is the most realistic and practical book ever written about business and personal success in the social media age. Every parent in America should buy this for their child's high school or college graduation. I know I will."
—Jay Baer, author of Youtility: Why Smart Marketing is About Help not Hype

A real-world guide to startup success and financial freedom

At 22 years old, Jaime Tardy had all of the trappings of success. Two new cars, a house with a pool—these material possessions made her life look picture perfect from the outside. But from the inside, Tardy realized just how unhappy she was. With $70,000 in debt and a job that she hated, she made the decision to get out and start living for herself. Just 16 months later, she was debt-free. She now works part time doing work she loves and makes more than her stressful corporate job ever paid her. The first question that people ask when they hear Tardy's story is, "How did she do it?" In The Eventual Millionaire: How Anyone Can Be an Entrepreneur and Successfully Grow Their Startup she answers this question and shares her secrets that can help you transform your life. Not only does this book explain her exact steps, but it also distills the advice from over 100 millionaires that successfully have grown their startups.

    There are a ton of books teaching us to be a millionaire. What set Jaime Tardy's book apart from the rest is that she first deals with why we want to be a millionaire, then she leads us step by step on how to get there. She literally has spoken to over 130 millionaires that are very candid in explaining how they got their millions. Numbers say more than words ever could and her book is full of numerical stats from the millionaires she interviewed. 

    As if that wasn't enough, there is a website with all the needed documents to create a business plan and everything else that is essential for creating your own business. Simply stated, this book has made a believer out of me where others just motivated me while I was read them and then there was a drop off. No need for me to say more, just read the book for yourself.
