7 Millionaires ... In Training!

Welcome to “7 Millionaires … In Training!” …

This site is a ‘grand experiment’ by Adrian, whose revolutionary blog $7million7years chronicles his own journey from $30k in debt to $7million in the bank in just 7 years!

Adrian decided to ‘give back’ by helping 7 ordinary people to become independently wealthy.

In fact, Adrian’s goal is help create …

7 Multi-Millionaires in just 7 Years!

No scams, no cost, no tricks … just plain, good ol’ fashioned advice … and, a lot of hard work and fun!

Here, you will meet our 7 Millionaires in Training (MITs), and you will be able to follow along as they chronicle their own path/s to wealth. You will hear their stories and their problems, and – if you like – you will have the opportunity to offer your own advice (and, perhaps ask your own questions) along with Adrian.

Our 7 MITs were hand-selected by Adrian after an ‘open casting call’ was made on the 7million7years blog at the end of April 2008. It is our hope that these select few will not only make their own fortunes, in their chosen fields … but that you will, too!

Here are the MIT’s 7 Golden Rules:

1. I shall be honest in all of my dealings, both onsite and offsite.

2. NO money – or ‘in kind exchange’ – will change hands via this site.

3. NO products, advertising, or affiliate links of any kind will be accepted. I may, however, include no more than one (1) link to my own site or blog in each post –  my site may contain products, but no ‘spam’ or ‘offensive’ products.

4. I understand that this site is hosted by WordPress.com, whose Terms of Service will me met by me at all times.

5. I will open an account at Networth IQ and post my starting Net Worth as accurately as I am able, and I will update (again, as accurately as I am able) my Net Worth at least once every 3 months.

6. I will post on this site about my progress, hopes, goals, aspirations, problems at least once a week, using my real first name (and, thumbnail image), and I will answer reader comments at least daily, if not possible, then at least every other day.

7. Adrian is the sole arbiter of who enters and/or uses this site, and may edit, add, or delete content and/or comments at his sole discretion. Adrian is the sole owner of this site and, once I post, he owns all copyright. I will assist Adrian by answering any of his, or any reader, questions and performing any tasks in a reasonable and timely manner that Adrian may reasonably request provided that such requests do not break any of the other Golden Rules, and provided that I do not reasonably morally or ethically object.

There is an 8th requirement and it is this: Adrian may use the content in this site to create a book and/or documentary, or any other kind of associated, published content and the 7MITs will be required to provide any reasonable assistance – no payment will be made for such assistance, unless in accordance with industry practice.

That’s it …

I hope that you, along with our 7 MITs, enjoy the journey!

  • Matthew Martin 4:20 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    I love what is going on here. I am a small business owner and the thing I see everywhere is the potential for people to do what they want to do. The problem is lack of motivation, fear of failure or just not knowing where to start. The life purpose is definitely needed if you want to get anywhere. Good luck to all of you involved in this. I am interested how the experiment will turn out.

  • Sue Hicks 5:25 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    I am impressed with reading about the program. I hope it works and that dreams really do come true. Maybe I could be a millionaire, too, someday.

    Lee recently asked me to make a comment here.. comment:)

  • Skip Stanley 7:13 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    Hey Lee, I wish you best wishes in your endeavors. I know you have a pastors heart. You have been very kind to me and I have witnessed the genuine caring person you are. It is the little things you do that you don’t have to that people see.

    I hope you do make a million dollars. I know that unto him who is given much, much is required, but because you are faithful in little things, you are a great candidate to be given more.

    God Bless,

    Chaplain (LTC) Skip Stanley

    In support of Lee Martin:
    I encourage you to do all you can for Lee. He is a wise, honest and humble servant of a man. He spoke at our church many times when we were searching for a new Pastor, keeping our congregation together and growing. He has engaged in many ventures in order to help others even when it cost him to do so. He values his values and so do I. I have been privileged to be a recipient of his wisdom via “life coaching” email and have kept several columns to reread because the lessons were so relevant. Above all though, I believe Pastor Martin will do good with any money he may acquire. Sincerely,

  • Tim Millspaugh 7:34 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    Go Lee, I dont know of anyone more deserving. When you reach your goal I believe the money will be used to glorify God in some way, it will be used absolutely in a positive way.

  • AJC 7:35 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    @ Lee – Sounds like you have ‘launched into action’ on the web-site traffic front. We’ll make an Internet marketer out of you, yet 🙂

  • LeRoy 8:11 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    Good luck Lee. If anybody can do it you would be my pick and to think of all the great things you would do with it.
    Hang in there and trust in God!!!

  • topekac1 8:29 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    I really didn’t expect people to make personal comments about “me”. 😦 My intent was that they would give you feedback regarding the experiment.

  • Ellen 9:26 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    I think this is a very interesting concept. I wish well of all who take this journey.

  • Marta Barron 10:15 pm on August 24, 2008 | #

    In support of Lee Martin. This experiment sounds incredible!! I only wish that I would have known about it before. I think that AJC’s idea of helping 7 people become millionaires and to be able to help out their families and friends is a wonderful gesture on his part. I would love to learn how to become an internet marketer and I have a wonderful product to sell there. Anyway, please do this again and let me know when I can sign up!

  • James Dean 6:24 am on August 25, 2008 | #

    What a great opportunity! A good mentor is what we all need. This sounds fantastic. Good luck.

  • Bob 6:26 am on August 25, 2008 | #

    Lee, it sounds like a great idea. I know the Kingdom of God would benefit from your first million $$ as well as your very last. May God bless your efforts.

  • AJC 11:10 am on August 25, 2008 | #

    @ Marta – Internet marketing is actually my weak point 🙂 I made all my money in the ‘real world’ … however, if you want to learn along with me (and, perhaps have a laugh or two at or with me) hop on over to my brand new blog which chronicles my attempt at creating an online sales site for a product that I haven’t even created yet!


  • Charlie Turney 11:53 am on August 25, 2008 | #

    There is a commercial from the 70’s that dealt with the stock market, the main objective was “we make money the old fashioned way, we earn it…” from everything I have read here, and on Lee’s email, I believe that is what the 7 will do. Perfecting your way of dealing with money I believe will also help in learning how to deal and solve many problems in life. I wish all seven the very best and look forward to following their path…

  • Judi Spain 3:43 pm on August 25, 2008 | #

    Lee, God Bless You and Ellen in what ever endevor you pursue. Your heart is in the right place and I believe you will be and have been a Blessing, whether you become a millionair or not.

  • Billie Bell 7:34 pm on August 25, 2008 | #

    Lee, It sounds like a great deal. I wish you the best
    of luck in becoming a millionaire. God Bless You and

  • Janeal Lischke 8:59 pm on August 25, 2008 | #

    This sounds like such an awesome opportunity for people. It seems more financial training is a very needed specialty in our credit-based world. Good wishes to this project and all involved!

  • Sam 9:11 pm on August 25, 2008 | #

    Sounds like an interesting opportunity. Hope it works out for you Lee. God Bless!

  • Todd Nince 8:43 pm on August 26, 2008 | #

    I hope this works out for people. At first I was skeptical just because of the word “millionaire” but the more I read about it, the more it makes sense. Hard work, good advice, and training.

  • AJC 9:12 pm on August 26, 2008 | #

    @ Todd – Yes I understand, I meant to say “multimillionaire”, of course 😉

  • Steve Claspill 3:10 pm on August 27, 2008 | #

    Lee your will to succeed may be second only to your faith in christ. I sincerely hope that it is not only God’s will that you accomplish this goal but that it is through HIM that you devote your impending success. May the Lord bless and keep you all.

  • Mark 7:34 pm on August 27, 2008 | #

    G O O D L U C K LEE!!

  • Gary M 8:37 pm on August 28, 2008 | #

    I hope that your desire coupled with mentoring and hard work will bring about success for you!

  • Dick Owen 8:44 pm on August 28, 2008 | #

    Have known you for a long time, and God has always come first in your life. I know you have a heart for others and being sucessful in this area would be a definite benefit. God Bless, Lee.
