They are just trying to do whatever it takes to become rich.

Over the last few years, I’ve seen a trend growing on the Internet: people are trying to become Internet-rich.

These people want to figure out how to make a lot of money, buy fancy things like Lamborghinis and show the whole world how well they are doing by posting pictures of their extravagant life on Facebook.

Perhaps they hope that if they create a big enough following, they’ll get featured on sites that encourage such materialistic lifestyle like Secret Entourage.

Now, there is nothing wrong with this approach to life if it makes you happy. The first is these type of people aren’t looking to create businesses that solve problems.

A lot of the Internet-rich people you know got that way because they sold programs and schemes that promised to make other people rich.

The successful entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Marc Andreessen, Evan Williams and Mark Zuckerberg aren’t wealthy because they wanted to make a ton of money. The side effect was that they made billions from it.

The big difference between people who are Internet-wealthy and Internet-rich is that the wealthy ones are solving problems instead of focusing on becoming rich.

So, if you want to become wealthy, don’t focus on making money first.

Instead, figure out a problem you can solve that enough people in the world are facing.
