Basic Rules to Keep You on Track:

  2. Only use the money you’ve doubled—no sneaky adding your own cash.
  3. Stick to physical money for the first 15 steps—coins and bills only.
  4. Splurge on yourself if you make more than double—enjoy a little treat!
  5. Take your time—the doubling doesn’t need to be in one go.
  6. Keep a diary—jot down your progress and tricks.
  7. Focus on one step at a time—don’t stress about future steps.
  8. No spending until you hit a million—stay disciplined!
  9. Lost money? Drop back to a step you can afford and climb back up.
  10. Use your own skills—especially handy in the early steps.

What You’ll Learn Along the Way:

  • Big achievements start small—all you need is a penny and some grit.
  • You’ll grow with your money—your mindset will shift to think like the wealthy.
  • It’s not just about hard work—it’s about smart strategies, sales, and people skills.
  • Adapt and conquer—early on, finding change is easy; later, you’ll get creative.
  • Break it down—a million dollars feels huge, but baby steps make it manageable.
