One Million in the Bank Website is Launched
I am Michael L. F. Slavin, and I recently started the One Million in the Bank concept with the strong belief this is a realistic goal in reach of almost anyone. Most millionaires have created their wealth through business ownership. You do not have to be a genius, have money or even an original idea. Tried and true businesses of all types, using the proper execution, can earn the kind of money to make this dream come true. Through my personal story as a backdrop, the book explains how you can become a millionaire, too. (more…)

Presentations were made to investors and judges at the Rice Venture Forum.

While most of the presenters are still trying to find the money they need for their venture, a few have made it and it is their second or third project. (more…)
I did not get much done this whole year except talking about my sales book. Yes, I was putting some words on paper and taking notes in my sales book journal, but not as much as I should have. I talked to my employees, my family, my friends, and strangers, but not much got done. I had already read so many sales books over the years it was not funny.

I would have to pick my own angle, my own buzz words then say what everybody else said. I guess I had lost the spark somewhere towards the end of 2010 to help people with a sales book.
