The rules of traditional business and entrepreneurship have changed.
The American Dream is no longer confined to the corner office or a cubicle.
People are legitimately making good incomes using the internet to run a business completely online.
Not only that, but it’s allowing them to live the lifestyle they want, on their own terms.
Think about it, no more:
- long commutes in traffic
- getting up early just to try to make it to work on time
- getting dressed in clothes you hate, just so you can look presentable.
No, the new American Dream is a business that can be run from wherever you desire – and Click Millionaires wants to help you do just that.
Click Millionaires is an idea book and provides a broad overview of the different businesses you can pursue online.
Is Click Millionaires just another “get rich quick” scheme? Absolutely not! This is why Scott Fox encourages the reader to start slowly, part-time, and spend as little money as possible. What’s great about this book is that he shows you how starting an online lifestyle business is easier and cheaper than ever!
In the rest of this post, I give you a summary of the book, my takeaways, and my recommendation for you.

- Scalability is the ability of a technology or business system to adapt easily to increased volume and to maintain or improve profitability without requiring significant additional resources.

Find Your Niche for Online Business Success
The most important thing from Click Millionaires was to consider in creating your business is finding something you are passionate about.
If you aren’t passionate about a topic, you probably won’t be excited to work on your business each and every day.
An example from Click Millionaires was a person who lived in the United States, but wanted to learn French and travel to France. She started a french vocabulary blog to start learning French and over time, built a strong following and made friends in France! What a story!
