7 Lessons I Learned From Chatting With The “$500 Million Man”



Com Mirza 500 Million Dollar Inspirational Man

Recently I was able to interview Com Mirza, “The $500 Million Man”, partly for fun and partly to share to learn about how he’s been able to become so successful over the course of his life. Like myself, he started at a very young age, with a humble lemonade stand.

Com has failed over 100 times in investments and startups and credits these failures in correcting his course and his bearings for wild success.

This is an interview not to be missed. Click the play button below and checkout the key takeaways from this awesome chat with the man of the hour “Com Mirza”.



5 Inspirational Takeaways From Com Mirza


1) Start YOUNG!

If you can, start as young as possible! Com started at 7, and even though he had many failed attempts before he “got it”, he was still really young when he finally was successful.

As a young person, you will get a world class education from starting various projects and ventures, which is what I showcase in my upcoming book 2 Billion Under 20. Even if you aren’t young now, today is the best day to start a new project or business so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor as soon as possible.


2) Create Daily Rituals for Success

Com is up at 5 A.M. or earlier, spends time to work on himself (via meditation, exercise, reading, journaling, etc) all before he tackles his work. He’ll then work up until noon, uninterrupted, in order to take time off to hang out with family. He then takes an afternoon nap, and goes back to work after dinner when no one can bother him. He sleeps maybe 5 hours a day, and is getting most of his work done while others sleep. Com also has an hourly reminder to be grateful for what he has, and that keeps him grounded in his success.


3) Work Your A** Off

Hard work separates the super successful from everyone else. “It comes down to the work,” says Com. If you are the hardest working, it is inevitable that you will be successful.

Many people think Lebron James is the best player on the planet, but he is also one of the hardest workers in the NBA, and that’s why he is at the position in life that he’s at.


4) Failure is Temporary

Most successful people fail at one point or another in their journeys. Com failed countless business ventures before finally going bankrupt, creating one more business to break even, and then ultimately others (via investing, founding, etc) in order to eventually become the $500 man he is today.

As he goes for $1 Billion in net worth, there will certainly be other failures he will encounter, but failure will be temporary.


5) Be Smart With Your Initial Success

In order to build the type of net worth Com has, you can’t be foolish about your money when you make your first real income. Most young people prematurely splurge on cars, houses, crazy nightlife, and other luxuries they don’t need when they can be reinvesting in real estate, other companies, and other things that will grow their net worth and become assets over time instead of cost them money in the long run.


6) Learn Along The Way

You don’t have to always know everything before you start in the business world.

It’s okay to give it a go and learn along the way.


7) Never Give Up!

Com had a massive vision. After selling his first company for $60,000 he decided to then reinvest that money with the risk of losing it all on the next venture, knowing that even if he did, he would eventually reach his end goal if he stuck with it and never gave up.

Com looks at failures as stepping stones to success. Not as the end of the world or as a weakness.

4 Ways YOU Can Create Powerful Habits – James Clear

Joel Brown (Founder of



Author and habits expert James Clear says if you want to make big changes, first you have to think small. His new book, “Atomic Habits,” zeroes in on the idea that small adjustments add up to larger changes over time.

Checkout his new book Atomic Habits on Amazon now!

What Are Habits?

Let’s define habits. Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. 

Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.

What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray. Everything I write about – from procrastination and productivity to strength and nutrition – starts with better habits. When you learn to transform your habits, you can transform your life.

Listen to the full podcast interview below to learn the ways that James Clear has Mastered his Habits!

As James Clear says:

Becoming better is not simply a matter of willpower or work ethic. It’s also a matter of strategy. What people assume is a lack of willpower or an unwillingness to change is often a consequence of trying to build good habits in bad environments.

  • If you are trying to read more books, don’t do it in a room filled with video games, Netflix, and a television. Move to a less distracting environment.
  • If you’re very overweight, don’t try to follow a workout program for college athletes. You can get there eventually, but that’s not a battle you need to fight right now. Start with a manageable change.
  • If you’re surrounded by people who tear down your goals, then work on your projects in a different location or reach out to like-minded people.
  • If you’re trying to stick to a writing habit when your kids are home from school and your house is in chaos, then work on it at a different time. Switch to a time of less resistance.

Build your habits where it is easy to do so. Re-define the situation. Create a game where the odds are stacked in your favor.

It sounds simple, but how often do you find yourself fighting difficult battles and ignoring easy ones? There is plenty of time to fight the difficult battles. Win the easy battles first.

The smartest path is to improvement is the one of least resistance. Fight battles you are destined to win.
