"Mike provides relevant and actionable advice based on his own experiences and those of everyday people from all walks of life showing how anyone, and I mean anyone, can seek and obtain financial success."
--Kelly Perdew, Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, and Winner of The Apprentice-Season 2
"I wish I'd had this book when I started my company. Since I didn't, I had to learn everything through trial and error. Still, I was able to go from zero to millionaire in just two years. I know Mike's principles work because they're exactly the ones I used. Now, I can serve my community to fulfill a passion,not for a paycheck. Follow Mike's business advice and you can put $1,000,000 in the bank too!"
"I used to look at Mark Zuckerberg and Michael Dell and think, "Gee, why can't I be one of those guys? I've got good business sense, I work hard, and I'm entrepreneurial--but I've never had a million-dollar idea like they did. I felt stuck. But One Million Dollars in the Bank got my wheels turning. Mike's book inspired me to rethink my approach. He's right--I don't have to invent the next Facebook to be a business success. I'm now inspired."
--Derek Lewis, Author, The Business Book Bible
"The American Dreaming of being financially stable and having a million dollars in the bank is still alive and strong! Mike provides you with a road map on how to get there and success stories of individuals who have already achieved their dream. This is a must read."
"Mike will open your eyes to possibilities you never thought were possible. Money is everywhere, help abounds, and innovation is much less than important than hard work and smart execution. This book should get you moving."
--Joy Montgomery, Small Business and Startup Consultant and Western Region Mentor Chair for the Cleantech Open
From the Back Cover
Anyone can make enough to save $1,000,000 in 3-7 years. Most self-made millionaires are made through business ownership. Many people think about owning a business but never take action because they don't have an idea, they don't have the money, and flat just don't know how. This is a practical book to teach you how to find, start, finance, and get free advice to own and grow your own business. For example, a yardman with no money was worth over $9,000,000 in 7 years after buying a nursery and growing his business. There are many more stories and lessons, including how the author went from bankrupt to having his first million dollars in 3 ½ years. This book will change your perspective and put you on the path to financial independence.

The book’s author, Mike Slavin, comes off as a good friend who wants to share his success with you. And when you consider that he made most of his net worth prior to writing this book, he is just that: someone who wants to help people like you and me who want a chance to make the dream come true.
This book not only deals with the basics of finding the right business for you; how to get funding; and the long term skills needed to make it work, but also insight into subjects such as will power; changing habits and cognitive biases (I know it sounds complex, but I found it fascinating). In other words, the book covers all the bases.
Will this book guarantee you will ultimately put A Million in the Bank? Of course not, but if you want a fighting chance, read this book and give it your best shot. With Mike Slavin as your partner, the odds are on your side.
These 2 main points are something, I think are the crux of success. Having the courage, initiative and desire to want to change your lot in life. And...big fat goals. $1,000,000 in your bank pushes you to focus on big goals, big plans - like how many customers do I need to sell to or service to get $1,000,000 in the bank...and then you work backward from there.
The chapter on bias's is new. I cannot recall any other entrepreneur mentioning these- ever. I have read 100s of these books. This chapter pinpoints why most people do not start a business, do not see opportunities and do not succeed, I for one am guilty of all of them or at least half on the list. Worth reading over and over again - and exploring them with someone that can help you overcome them.
There are many chapters in this book that will help you along the way. What type of business to start, ones to avoid, where to find money to help you buy the business, where to get help running the business. All of these sources are available you just need to seek them out.
There are some huge risks in starting a business, but the reward is there. What really happens to you as a person is the greatest benefit. What you learn, what becomes important to others. Who you become...and the end is the story you share to help guide others - I think Michael gets an "A" here.
Anyone that has been in military, failed and succeeded, come from negative to owning an oil company is worth a read
