1. You must be born into a wealthy family. The richer your parents are, the richer you will become. The math favors this simple logic.

2. Money doesn’t grow on trees, so stop looking for it. It’s actually printed by the Federal Reserve and pumped into the economy at record speeds. It’s also produced on the blockchain as new bitcoins are mined by computers.

3. The second-easiest way to become a millionaire is to find someone who already is one and marry them. This still requires hard work, as you need to court them, woo over their heart, and make sure there’s no prenuptial agreement that prevents you from keeping millions upon divorce.
