7 Biblical Facts About the Angel Gabriel


Gabriel isn’t Called an Archangel in the Bible

Many people, including Christians consider Gabriel an archangel and for good reason. The book of Enoch, an influential work written between the Old and New Testament, references Gabriel as an archangel. Because of this, most believe that Gabriel is an archangel from this text. The book of Enoch says Gabriel and Michael were both archangels. Jude quotes the book of Enoch as prophecy and calls Michael and archangel. Because of this, Jude considered Gabriel an archangel too, all pointing to Gabriel being one. But the truth is the Protestant Bible never once calls Gabriel an archangel. The only named angel specifically called an archangel in the Bible is Michael, referenced in Jude 9.

Gabriel Only Speaks to Three Biblical Characters

We know from Scripture that the angel Gabriel is a messenger who is entrusted to deliver several important messages on God’s behalf. Gabriel appears to at least three people in the Bible, first to the prophet Daniel, referenced in Daniel 8:16; next to the priest Zechariah to foretell and announce the miraculous birth of John the Baptist (Luke 19:19); and finally to the virgin Mary to tell her that she would conceive and bear a son, referenced in Luke 1:26-28.


Gabriel First Appears in Daniel’s Vision

The first time we see Gabriel, he appears to Daniel after the prophet had a vision. Gabriel’s role is to explain the vision to Daniel. The Bible tells us, “And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, and it called, ‘Gabriel, make this man understand the vision.” Gabriel’s appearance was that of a man. When Gabriel visited Daniel a second time, he came to him “in swift flight at the time of the evening sacrifice” (Daniel 9:21).

Gabriel May Not Have Had Wings

While popular art and culture depict Gabriel with wings, he may not have had them. Gabriel’s “flight” referenced in Daniel 9:21 might suggest wings, but wings are not mentioned. While there is no record of Gabriel having wings, Scripture also doesn’t say that he didn’t have wings. Much is left up to our imagination.

Gabriel’s Name Means “God is Great”

His name has tremendous significance and power. Gabriel means “God is great,” and, as the angel of the annunciation, he is the one who revealed that the Savior would be called “Jesus” referenced in Luke 1:31. But Jesus isn’t the only baby Gabriel names. When Gabriel startles Zechariah in the temple, he tells the priest to name his son John (Luke 1:13). In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus states that among the sons of women, nobody is greater than John the Baptist – although the very least in the kingdom of God would be greater than John. Gabriel is quite significant as he names the two greatest humans to ever live. Every time Gabriel shows up in the Bible, he makes some mention of Jesus. Gabriel’s messages always point to the coming Messiah.

Gabriel is One of Two Named Good Angels in the Bible

While many angels are referenced in the Bible, Gabriel is one of the two good and holy angels referenced by name which is pretty significant. He has favored position as an angel who stands in the presence of God (Luke 1:19), and he is selected to deliver important messages of God’s particular love and favor to individuals chosen to be part of God’s plan.

Gabriel’s Appearance is Rather Terrifying

It is clear from Scripture that Gabriel’s appearance was rather terrifying, as Daniel fell on his face at the sight of him. The Bible tells us, “So he came near where I stood. And when he came, I was frightened and fell on my face. But he said to me, ‘Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end’” (Daniel 8:17). The Bible also tells us that he was sick for days after his experience with the angel and the vision. Scripture also says, “And I, Daniel, was overcome and lay sick for some days. Then I rose and went about the king’s business, but I was appalled by the vision and did not understand it” (Daniel 8:27). Zechariah is likewise “startled and gripped with fear” (Luke 1:12). His fear may not have been based as much on his physical appearance as it was the shock factor. He did show up unannounced in what was supposed to be an empty temple. He may have been less frightened by his looks than he was his sudden appearance.

While God has called His heavenly messengers to work on His behalf, He has also called angels to work in our lives in very profound ways. Gabriel is an incredible example of this. God loves us so much that He sends His angels to guard, guide and protect us through various stages of our life. Although we may not immediately know or see that angels are around us, they are there at God’s direction and working to assist us in this life and the next.

Prophet Bushiri pulls another surprise: 2018 first service pulls 70 000, thousands receive Jesus

South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) has, once again, pulled another giant surprise with his 2018 Grand Entrance Service on Sunday pulling over 70 000 people and, again, over 20 000 giving their life to Jesus Christ.

This was the first service in 2018 for the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church.


The success of the Grand Entrance Service—which rides on the historical FNB turnout two weeks ago during the Crossover Night—represents yet another milestone for ECG and Prophet Bushiri, a herald of even more greater things to come in 2018.

It is reported that as early as 5 hours (CAT), thousands had already filled the pews in all the seven halls. The open air space was, again, packed as the clock ticked 8 hours.

As Prophet Bushiri arrived around 13 hours, Pretoria Showgrounds was already a sea of saints—drawn from different parts across the world, who had come to praise and worship God at ECG.

Prophet Bushiri

Over 20 000, according ECG communications director Ephraim Nyondo, gave their life to Christ for the first time. He added that the Prophet even took time to pray and put his hand on almost everybody who came to church with different ailments.

In his sermon, Prophet Bushiri called on church leaders across the world to use the pulpit of God to spread the gospel not fights.

With the success of the Grand Entrance Service, Prophet Bushiri—who in the build up to the service had been a center of attacks from other ministries and also some governments—has just scored yet another important step in the growth of his ministry.

Nyondo said: “Prophet Bushiri is God’s sent. The power of God is in him. No matter how much he can be fought, victory will always be on his side; because God fights his battles.”

Breaking the Spirit of Poverty


Having a relationship with Jesus certainly doesn’t mean we’ll be free of problems or struggles. Life can be tough, and even as Christians, we’ll face many challenges.

Before we were saved, we were no threat to the devil. But when we accepted Jesus into our heart, something changed. We took up a new residence in the spiritual battlefield and immediately became an enemy of Satan.

Many of our battles, struggles, and trials in life are rooted in the spiritual realm. As a result, war must be waged on the spiritual battlefield and fought with spiritual weapons.

Overcoming poverty is one example of this principle. Jesus taught us that the devil is a THIEF who comes to steal and destroy God’s blessings in our life (John 10:10). Many Christians unnecessarily suffer financial lack simply because they don’t understand the nature of the spiritual battle they’re in.


Your Father’s Blessings

God is a good God. Our Heavenly Father wants to bless us, and He would never send us into battle unequipped. He has given us His Word as “the sword of the Spirit” to overcome the lies of the enemy (Ephesians 6:17). Something happens when we put the Scriptures in our heart and mouth and begin to point them at the enemy.

Remember, victory over poverty is already yours. Through His death on the Cross and His Resurrection, Jesus has destroyed ALL “the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). But now He calls on you to enforce that victory by declaring His promises over your life.

The Apostle Paul wrote that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4). Through the truth of God’s Word, you have been given dominion over financial lack and every other stronghold in your life. So go ahead and let the enemy know he no longer has permission to harass you!


Defeating Satan’s Lies

Scripture tells us that the devil is “the father of lies” (John 8:44). Many Christians have believed the lie that God wants them to experience lack instead of abundance. Yet God wants to replace that lie with the truth that He wants you to PROSPER and be in health (3 John 1:2)!

If you’re a child of God, the devil has no rights in your life. But you must move into an offensive position and take back anything the enemy has stolen. Boldly speak to your circumstances, reminding them that you are a child of the King and a joint heir with Christ. Your words create your realities, so make sure they line up with God’s Word.

Don’t stop pressing in until you experience the victory you’ve been promised. Make sure you are taking steps of faith—Sowing financial Seeds in anticipation of God’s abundant Harvests in your life.

In Jesus’ name, you have power over the devil, but he’s not going to give up without a fight. You must realize the authority God has given you and lay an ax to the roots of poverty and financial lack.

May God awaken the mighty warrior inside of you, so you can pull down strongholds in your own life and then go to battle on behalf of your loved ones.

How Do I Get Out of Poverty and Debt?



Poverty is a lack of money or material possessions. Poverty is usually accompanied by debt obligations to others. Debt, whether or not associated with poverty, is a form of slavery. Following God’s principles will break the hold of both poverty and debt.

How to overcome the spirit of poverty

First of all, you must commit yourself, your finances, your family, and your life to Jesus Christ. Agree to live by God’s principles and seek to know what He has to say to you in your situation. Be absolutely honest about the faults and mistakes in your life, past or present, that may have caused your problem of debt. To escape trouble, you must know what put you there.


How to overcome the spirit of poverty

Second, do everything you can to understand God’s principles. The Bible says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). There are many Christians who have no concept whatsoever of the principles of God’s kingdom. They understand neither God’s laws dealing with material prosperity nor their own privileges as children of God. So, for lack of knowledge, they suffer.

People in debt or in poverty especially need to understand a rule of God’s kingdom that I call the Law of Reciprocity. This is a law of cause and effect, of action and reaction. In the area of money, the law is simple: “Give, and it will be given to you: Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38). When a person begins to give to God’s work and to the poor and less fortunate, God begins to give back to him. Regardless of the debt burden, a person should give a very minimum of 10 percent of his income to the Lord. Even if you are at a poverty-level income, you have something you can give to God. Start where you are. Reach out in compassion to those less fortunate than yourself. As a first priority, get into a position to give love, time, energy, and money to other people even if it is only a little bit.


How to overcome the spirit of poverty

Next, set up a realistic budget. Most people do not have budgets, and their spending has neither plan nor control. Whatever your income level, you should set up a budget that includes one or more tithes plus offerings to the Lord, which may be in the form of aid to those who are less fortunate (see Malachi 3:10). After setting aside your tithe, establish a realistic plan to pay off your debts. Go to your creditors and obtain an agreement that they will accept your payment schedule. Make it understood that you cannot pay any more than a certain amount, and they will almost always accept your plan.

Once you have done that, you have to resolve in your mind that there will be no more accumulation of debt. You cannot go back to living beyond your means. Make a vow to God that you will not buy anything on credit, and that your lifestyle will be curtailed to fit your income. This takes a definite mental and spiritual commitment. It may take a year, or two years, or five years, but you are going to get out of debt.

It has been suggested by a very wise businessman that part of any budget should go for recreation. There should be some time each month when the family can get away from the pressures of life. Maybe it can be a picnic in the park, a fishing trip, or possibly a night away from home in a motel or resort. Recreation includes anything to get away from the constant pressure and to allow your mind to be recreated in God.


Along with recreation, I recommend a Sabbath rest. You cannot work seven days a week. There must be one day a week that is dedicated to God, to thinking about Him, praying to Him, studying the Bible, and resting. All of these things are necessary to prepare your mind and spirit to win the battle.

Then, with all of these things going for you, you need a renewed faith in God. He is the source. As you give to Him and trust Him, God will begin to take you from bondage to debt into His blessings. He will open doors for you and will give you concepts and ideas to help you overcome your situation. You must believe this and expectantly look for His answer rather than to some other person as your source. God is your source.


How to overcome the spirit of poverty

Every day, speak words of confidence. Say out loud that you are going to be free from debt and that God is going to put you in a different position. Memorize scripture verses where God says things such as, “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes” (1 Samuel 2:8). Speak these words over and over again, confidently, knowing that God can do all things and do them well.


With that frame of mind, you should be on your way. It may take a year to pay off your debts. In the instances that I know of, the average was about eighteen months. But it may take three, four, or even five years. You will win the battle if you use the weapons that God has made available to you! You can be debt free!



Angels appear in church during a LIVE Service – Prophet Shepherd Bushiri

Angels appear in church during a LIVE Service – Prophet Shepherd Bushiri.


On the 13th of September 2015, during a Live Sunday Service, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1 prayed for the congregation on behalf of those who don’t believe in God for their spiritual eyes to open just as Elisha prayed for his servant Gehazi in 2 Kings 6:16. Behold, there was a physical appearance of angels in the fourth overflow.

It is recorded that thousands witnessed and attested to this great miracle. Some actually shared pictures of screenshots of the apparition of these angels captured live on camera as they watched. Others took snap shots with their camera phones from their TV screens.

Many people who doubted the existence of God were convicted through this miracle and received Jesus as their Lord and personal Saviour. This, however, is just one of many peculiar miracles that God is performing through Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1 in the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG).

Below is a written excerpt of the service:

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1(prays): “We believe that you really lived and that you died but Father for the sake of those who don’t believe, open the eyes of these people that they may believe in your power.”


“Let your kingdom, your splendour, your dominion be manifest. The visible glory of your kingdom and may every problem of them disappear.”

“Father in the Name of Jesus, let your kingdom appear in this place. Your power appear in this place and take away the problems of people. In the Name of Jesus, I pray.”

Congregation: “I receive!”

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1: “In the Name of Jesus, I pray.”

congregation: “I receive!”


Prophet Shepherd Bushiri -Major 1: “Elisha prayed for the eyes of Gehazi to open. And I want to say this. Your situation. Your problem. Your current suffering will never and can never be compared to what the Lord is about to do in your life.”


Some congregants: “O yes!”

Entire congregation starts screaming and people are been hit by the power of God all through the auditorium.

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1: “See angels! See angels! See angels!”

Screaming continues as angels become more visible and many are slayed in the Spirit.

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1: “Angels! Angels!”

“Do you see the glory of God? Have you seen the angels?”


Some congregants not hit by this great manifestation of power: “Yes!”


Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1: “Look here! Angels are here!”


“Whatever you need, begin to pray. Begin to pray. (X2)


” Begin to receive it! Begin to pray.”

Congregants start praying.

How To Become Rich

How To Become Rich

How To Become Rich

How To Become Rich by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri – Major 1

Does God Want You to Be Rich…or Poor?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

– Jeremiah 29:11

One of the most perplexing issues facing Christians in the marketplace today is whether God wants us to be rich or poor. It is easy enough to find plenty of people using verses from Scripture, often out of context, to support either extreme.

Last week I heard two sermons touching on this issue:

  • One preacher expounded the virtues of the “health and wealth gospel.” He said the reason we don’t have riches and wealth is because we haven’t asked God for them.
  • The other preacher told the story of how he sold his big house, gave away everything, and moved his family into a small, two-bedroom apartment, implying that a life of poverty was more virtuous.

Ken Eldred, in his book, God is at Work, suggests that God’s view of prosperity is much more complex, and many have drifted while trying to understand it. He makes the excellent point that prosperity is neither moral nor immoral. It is amoral, or value-neutral.

Eldred writes:

There are two misguided attitudes often encountered concerning the relationship between wealth and righteous living. Some view wealth as the evil enemy of a righteous life. Others view wealth as the essential evidence of a righteous life.

Many Christians and their pastors, horrified by the perceived excesses of the “health and wealth gospel,” retreat to a romantic view of poverty which often operates under the sacred-secular divide. Again Eldred’s comments are right on point:

Wealth is seen as the evidence of a misplaced focus on secular pursuits. No roads to prosperity are acceptable, since all means of acquiring wealth involve undue emphasis on secular activities. Many who follow this line of thinking retreat from the perceived trappings of the ‘secular’ marketplace to pursue ‘sacred’ activities and pursuits.

Eldred suggests a way out of the dilemma, with which we would agree. Health and wealth are not proof of obedience to God or of sufficient faith in him. Neither are sickness and poverty proof of disobedience or lack of faith. Both extreme viewpoints miss the mark.

Eldred suggests Christians can adopt a new paradigm that views business and all work as having inherent spiritual value in and of itself. The idea of all work seen as mission radically changes the way we view normal business activity, and teaches that business can have spiritual and economic goals. Eldred writes,

Business can become a spiritual activity when it advances God’s objectives by serving others and creating products and resources.

Wealth and capital creation can be tools with which committed Christians serve God as well as their neighbor.

Eldred suggests six key truths to be discerned by careful, prayerful scrutiny of Scripture:

  1. Wealth is to be in all areas – physical, mental, material, and spiritual.
  2. Wealth is from God – he is the source of all prosperity and blessing (Matthew 7:11Deuteronomy 8:8).
  3. Wealth is to be managed – we are the stewards of the material possessions entrusted to us (1 Corinthians 10:26Matthew 25:14-30).
  4. Wealth is to be used for God’s purposes (1 Timothy 6:17-182 Corinthians 9:11).
  5. Wealth is to be enjoyed (1 Timothy 6:17).
  6. Wealth is not our source of trust – God is (Luke 12:34).

Eldred concludes his book with this important idea: “The concepts of transformation, work, business, profit, and wealth are key biblical foundations of kingdom business. If one is going to effectively do business as a mission to spread the gospel, one must first understand that God cares about people’s spiritual, social, and economic transformation, that work in the business world is both necessary and a sign of useful service, and that poverty is a social disease to be addressed.”

Does it matter whether we are rich or poor? Leave your comments.

How To Become Rich: 4 steps

4 steps on How To Become Rich anyone can take
There are no “secrets” to getting rich overnight. But there are proven systems to get rich.

There are some repeatable, proven, systems to help you increase your wealth. There are also many foul scams promising you’ll get as rich as Scrooge McDuck — and it’s crazy how many people still fall into get-rich-quick traps even though there’s mountains of evidence that shows that they’re total scams.

Take multi-level marketing (MLM) businesses for example.


But despite all of the negative media attention, the government crackdowns, and the fact that you’re expected to spend an average of $25,000 of your own money to sustain this “career,” MLMs still managed to pull in more than $36 billion in 2015 alone.

This is an industry filled with fraud and broken promises — one in which you can reasonably expect to not only be swindled but hired to swindle others too!

MLMs aren’t the only get-rich-quick traps I see out there either. Here are a few others I’ve noticed:

  • Win the lottery. It’s common knowledge that we all have a better chance of being hit by a meteorite or struck by lightning than paying for a Tesla with an oversized Powerball check.
  • Become Instagram famous. At the risk of sounding like a crotchety old man, I remember a time when kids weren’t betting their futures on getting paid for their bad selfies.
  • Become a pro athlete. Please don’t count on this. Not only are the odds of becoming a pro-athlete incredibly small, but it also requires a lifetime of practice, iteration, and dedication to improvement. Also, who actually likes sports?

The fact is if there were truly one great way of getting-rich-quick, we’d all be doing it.

There are no “secrets” to getting rich overnight. But there are proven systems to get rich — and they take time.

However, I promise that if you take any of these 4 steps, you’re setting yourself up for long-term success. Do all 4 and you’re almost guaranteed to get rich.

  1. Invest early and often to become rich
  2. Practice conscious spending like a rich person
  3. Tap into hidden income
  4. Start your own business

How To Become Rich

Step 1: Invest early and often to become rich

The single most crucial thing you can do to ensure your financial future is investing — and the sooner you start, the easier it is to get rich.

This isn’t BS. There’s more than 100 years of evidence in the stock market that suggests this.

Still don’t believe me? Let’s look at a real world example of how to become rich by investing.

Say you’re 25 years old and you decide to invest $500/month in a low-cost, diversified index fund. If you do that until you’re 60, how much money do you think you’d have?

Take a look:

alt text here
$1,116,612.89That’s right. You’d be a millionaire after only investing a few thousand dollars per year.

Notice, I’m not talking about the Hollywood type of investing where hot-shot stockbrokers make huge multi-million dollar trades while yelling “SELL” into a phone for some reason.

Pictured: Some dude trading stocks and losing money. Not pictured: You investing in low-cost index funds and getting on with your life.

I said you should invest in low-cost, diversified index funds over time. That’s because smart investments are about consistency more than anything else — not chasing hot stocks. Or other weird investments:

The two essential ways to invest your money are straightforward:

  • 401k: Be sure to take advantage of your employer’s 401k plan by putting at least enough money to collect the employer match into it. This basically means that for every dollar you contribute, your company will match that (pre-tax!). This ensures you’re taking full advantage of what is essentially free money from your employer. That match is POWERFUL and can double your money over the course of your working life:

  • Roth IRA: Like your 401k, you’re going to want to max it out as much as possible. The amount you are allowed to contribute goes up occasionally. Currently you can contribute up to $5,500 each year.

Note: If $500/month sounds like a lot, read all the ways you can free up that money with just a few phone calls.

How To Become Rich

Step 2: Practice conscious spending like a rich person

Anyone who knows me knows that I detest ultra-frugality — otherwise known as the lifestyle of clipping coupons and sacrificing things like lattes for the sake of saving money.

Unlike a lot of people you see in the personal finance world, I’m not ashamed of how I spend lots of money on things I enjoy like eating out, traveling, or nice clothes.

And that’s all because I practice conscious spending. It’s the same system my friend uses in order to spend more than $21,000 on going out. I’d never tell you to skip on spending on the things that make you happiest. Just do so purposefully, and by avoiding the mindless spending that can come from disorganized finances.

Setting up the system might seem hard — but in the end, it’s all about:

  1. Automating your finances.
  2. Knowing where your money goes so you’re in complete control of the situation.

Automating your finances allows your system to work for you and passively do the right thing instead of you constantly wondering if you have enough money to spend. Or, getting your credit card bill each month, shrugging, and saying to yourself, “Yeah, I guess I spent that much.”

And it’s simple: at the beginning of the month, when you receive your paycheck, the money is immediately sent to where it needs to go through automatic systems that you have set up already.

Some spending recommendations for your system:

  • 50%-60% Fixed Costs: This includes things like utilities, rent, internet, and debt.
  • 10% Investments: This includes your Roth IRA and 401k plan.
  • 5%-10% Savings: This is money that goes towards things like vacations, weddings, home down payments, and unexpected expenses.
  • 20-35% Guilt-free Spending: Fun money! Spend this on anything you want from nice dinners to movies.

Why automatic?Because as humans we have incredibly limited willpower. It’s so limited in fact that it can render things like paying bills and putting money away in your savings each month a very difficult task.

Automating your finances subverts this by allowing you to save money without ever having to do it yourself.

How To Become Rich


Step 3: Tap into “hidden income”

I’m not talking about piles of cash buried somewhere in your backyard — this is the money that you can be saving right now by negotiating your bills.

That’s right. With just a few one-time, 5-minute phone calls, you can save HUNDREDS a month on bills for your:

  • Car insurance
  • Cell phone plan
  • Gym membership (less likely but still possible)
  • Cable
  • Credit card

It’s simple too — there are only 3 things you need to do to negotiate with these companies on fees and rates:

  1. Call them up.
  2. Tell them, “I’m a great customer, and I’d hate to have to leave because of a simple money issue.”
  3. Ask, “What can you do for me to lower my rates?

Of course, you’re going to want to adjust this formula for whatever company you’re calling. Check out my video on negotiating your bills for more on this topic.

Bonus: For the exact word-for-word scripts that I used to negotiate my bills, download the Ultimate Guide to Personal Finance.

Along with your bills, you can also be EARNING more money through salary negotiation.

This is actually one of the easiest and fastest way to earn more money.

In fact, a one-time salary increase of $5,000 — properly invested — adds up to over $1,300,000 by the time you retire.

1-time salary increase of $5000 invested and compounded after 40 years: 1,398,905.20!And in many cases, getting a raise only takes a single, 15-minute conversation with your boss.

Remember the chart from above showing the effect of $500/month?

You can meet this goal with ONE salary negotiation.If you’re interested in learning how to boost your income for life, check out my Ultimate Guide to Salary Negotiation (it’s free). It includes HD videos, word-for-word negotiation scripts, and walks you through each step in the process of getting a raise.

My favorite part: You’re already getting paid. Why not get the most out of every paycheck?

It’s a quick win, and you should absolutely capitalize on it. But if you’re looking for something that takes a bit more time — with a lot more upside — you should consider starting a business of your own.

How To Become Rich

Step 4: Start your own business

This is my all-time favorite answer to the question “how to become rich?” I’ve always believed that there’s a limit to how much money you can save — but no limit to how much you can earn.

This is especially true if you start your own online business.

From my years of experience not only running my own business but teaching scores of people to start their own as well, I’ve found that there are two great ways to start a business:

  1. Turn the skills you already have into a side hustle.
  2. Start an online business and reach millions of people all over the world.

Side Hustle

This is one of the fastest ways to get started in business. By utilizing the skills and talents at your disposal, you can start freelancing and generating a steady source of income on the side.

If you choose this option, you can quietly earn an extra thousand dollars a month on the side, like these students did.

And the best part: you don’t even have to quit the job you already have.

Online Business

With an online business, you can reach millions of people on the internet every day while scaling your product to help you earn millions online.

Don’t believe me? Check out just a few different ways you can make $1 million online.

  • 250,000 people spending $4
  • 100,000 spending $10
  • 50,000 people spending $20
  • 10,000 people spending $100
  • 1,000 people spending $1,000

Could you find 1000 people to buy from you over the next few years? I think so.

To start an online business, you need to choose from 6 different models:

  1. Software (including apps)
  2. Physical products
  3. Advertising
