Have you ever wanted to become a millionaire?

OK, let’s not lie — the answer is probably yes. Or, if you did not want to become a millionaire, it is because you wanted to be something more, like a billionaire. 

One interesting thing about becoming a millionaire is that people think it is a very complicated, impossible thing to do. However, in reality, becoming a millionaire (or possibly more) is doable and simple, if you know what you are doing. Keep in mind, though, simple and easy are two different things.

Some people managed to get some stats, stories and ideas and combine them all into this incredible book for teens, so many others, including you, can learn how to be a millionaire!

The title of this book is “How To Turn $100 Into $1,000,000,” and it was written by James McKenna, Jeannine Glista and Matt Fontaine, who are known for their work on other shows like “Biz Kid$” and “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”

“How To Turn $100 Into $1,000,000” is full of advice on money, including how to think like a millionaire, how to use things like compound interest to your advantage, how to set up a budget, and how NOT to become a millionaire! (Trust me, you have no idea how important that section is).

This book also contains inspirational stories like how people such as Jeff Bezos and Oprah Winfrey became extremely rich after starting small.

Overall, “How To Turn $100 Into $1,000,000” is a very useful book. These pages give you so many stories, ideas and information on, well, how to turn $100 into $1,000,000. Also, besides the clickbait-style title, this book teaches everyone, not only kids, how to responsibly manage their money from an early age.

Now, what to do after you become a millionaire? That’s a story for another day.
