I want to be wealthy and successful but I don't know where to start. Where do I begin?

One of the most important things when starting is mindset and motivation.

You can first check these books to understand more about the mindset:

  • The Millionaire Fastlane
  • The 4 Hour Workweek
  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad
  • The Millionaire Next Door

After you’ve developed the mindset, you need to find ways to bring value to other people in exchange for money.

The easiest and most cost effective way to begin is by using your skills learned from the university and from other sources to help other people.

Freelancing/consulting is a good way to start because you learn valuable skills that you will use later as an entrepreneur: how to market yourself and find clients, how to negotiate fees for your services, how to solve your clients’ problems and how to make them happy.

Other very effective online methods you can check out include digital marketing / Facebook Ads / SEO / Ecommerce. I’ve written an overview here:

Dimitris Panouris's answer to What kind of hard work online will make you rich?

In general you need to understand how to bring more clients and make sales, so a very good knowledge in marketing (alongside your engineering skills) is a must.

But before you begin, you should develop your mindset in order to “shield” yourself from the “9 to 5” mentality and from the negativity of other people who won’t believe in what you will be doing and who will try to persuade you to become “normal”, only until you prove them wrong.
