How to Make a Million – THINK like a Millionaire (Part One)

“Money can’t buy you happiness. But it helps you to be miserable in comfort.”
This article incorporates thoughts and extracts from Craig’s three money books, THE MAD MONEY BOOK, HOW TO MAKE A MILLION and STEPS TO SUCCESS, PROSPERITY AND HAPPINESS.
Becoming a millionaire starts with one word… DESIRE. You have to REALLY want wealth and prosperity… for whatever end (reason) YOU want.

Here are a few misconceptions about millionaires:
Myth Number 1: Millionaires work 10 times as hard as the ordinary man in the street.


Craig’s various books (Amazon) on money and money management are at

KiwiSaver in a nutshell

KiwiSaver is a voluntary savings scheme set up by the government to help New Zealanders to save for their retirement.

You can choose to contribute 3%, 4% or 8% of your gross (before tax) wage or salary to our KiwiSaver account. Your employer has to contribute as well – at least 3% of your gross salary.

Along with KiwiSaver employer contributions, there’s an annual KiwiSaver government contribution.

Your funds are invested on your behalf by the KiwiSaver provider of your choice. If you don’t choose a provider Inland Revenue will assign you to one of the nine default KiwiSaver schemes.
