Only 1/10th of 1% of the people in the United States have a net worth of more than five million dollars ($5,000,000).
Only 1/10th of 1%? That’s 357,000 people! That’s more than the population of New Orleans, or Honolulu, or Cincinnati.
If you could get just 10% of the richest 1/10th of 1 percent of the U.S. population (just 35,700 people) to give you $100, you’d have $3.57 million. Or, you could get just 1% of them (3,570 people) to give you $1000. Or just .1% of them (357 people) to give you $10,000.
No matter what your number is, there are a lot of ways to get there, but having a plan is the first step. The skills required to get 357 people to give you $10,000 are different than the skills required to get 357,000 to give you $1. Figure out what skills you need for the path you want to take, and go from there.
