    Unlike the other answers, here. I’m going to teach you a simple lesson about business.

    Don’t ask “how can I make $XYZ”, instead ask “How can I create $XYZ worth of value to my customers.”

    Look at Google, Intuit, Yahoo, Microsoft, or any other business... Sure the purpose of a business is to make money, but these companies didn’t become successful because the companies owners made tons of money.

    Money, or rather compensation for work, is the end result of a business. If you try extracting money from customer without providing value, you’ll go out of business. You won’t make it to $1,000,000. Let alone a multiple of that number.

    Solve a problem the customer has (or doesn’t know she/he has). That is the inside secret to a successful company.
