Starting the millionaire interview series is something I’m really glad I did. I think the series is a perfect addition to this website as my goal is to hit a million dollar net worth and show you that you can do the same. Who better to interview than actual millionaires right? I was excited to get the series started, so I threw it together and started reaching out to people.
Now that I’ve had more time to think over the series and gotten some critical feedback, it’s time to make the series more original! I’ve decided to give it a complete overhaul and make it fit better with my martial arts theme.
The first thing I decided to change was the name. The Millionaire Interview Series will now be called the Financial Black Belt Series. In martial arts, being a black belt means you’ve put in the time and effort and have mastered certain skills. Being a black belt in finance means you’ve accumulated a net worth of a million dollars. I feel like a million dollars is the perfect amount to set for the black belt as it’s a hard number to achieve, but still attainable for most people.
Once you’ve received your black belt, you start earning degrees. Degrees are stripes on your belt that represent even further mastery on your martial arts journey. I’ll be using the degrees in my financial black belt series as well. For every additional million you have, you get a degree. 1 million – first degree, 2 million – second degree and so on.
I’m also going to create a page with a list of all the financial black belts I interview and rank them by their degrees. I thought it would be cool to have a page with all the black belts I interview listed out so you can check out their blogs and learn even more about them.
The next thing I changed was the structure of the questions. I did my best to form the questions in a way that will highlight the interviewee’s story, rather than just get them to answer a bunch of questions. Stories are easier to read and learn from, so I thought changing the questions to more of a story outline would be best for readers. I also added some questions to find out how the interviewee thinks about money. How we think has such a huge impact on our lives, so I wanted to ask these millionaires some questions on the psychology of finance.
Overall, I just made the series more unique and hopefully, more fun to read. I really want this blog to become a digital dojo where people can come to learn and end up black belts in finance themselves.
I’ll be posting the first interview in the series tomorrow, so be sure to check it out!
