Millionaire Employees

In my study, I discovered three types of self-made millionaires:

  1. Savers
  2. Entrepreneurs and
  3. Executives

This topic will focus on the Executives.

Executives are ordinary individuals who decide to spend their lives working for big, publicly-held companies. These companies offer additional compensation in the form of stock: qualified stock options, non-qulified stock options, discounted stock purchase arrangements, stock grants and restricted stock.

Employed, self-made millionaires use specific strategies that make them un-fireable:

  • They become in-house experts within their company.
  • They become industry experts within their industry.
  • They develop a niche within their company or their industry.
  • They forge power relationships with other influencers within their company.
  • They forge power relationships with other influencers within their industry.
  • They use four core relationship-building strategies: Hello Calls, Happy Birthday Calls, Life Event Calls and Networking/Volunteering.

There are many ways to become rich. Climbing the corporate ladder in a large publicly-held company is one of the less risky paths to accumulating wealth.
