EXACT Steps To Go From 0 To $1Million In Credit Repair

In this article, I’ll take you in-depth through all the steps to get from zero to making your first million dollars at credit repair. These simple steps cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars and more than 20 years to learn. 

I’ve put all those hard-earned lessons into a simple chart that will show you what to focus on at each level of your credit repair business journey, from practice to pro, and beyond. First, I recommend that you download the chart so you can follow along with the steps in this article.


The key is to know EXACTLY where you are

Do you know why it’s so important to be able to figure out where you stand on the journey to success?

It’s so important because those who truly understand where they are, who understand how to advance and what to say YES or NO to along the way, they have MUCH greater success than those who don’t. 

And that’s exactly what the Millionaire’s Journey Map gives you, and what I’ll highlight in this article. 

The person who inspired this amazing resource is my mentor and good friend, Alex Charfen. His Billionaire Code has helped me so much by guiding me to take the same steps I’m teaching here. As I’ve grown Credit Repair Cloud, I’ve used his guidance as a blueprint to grow our company, and it’s saved me from making very expensive mistakes along the way, which is why I created our own version for you – our Credit Heroes! If you’re interested in learning more about Charfen, you can visit Charfen.com. 

There are 7 levels of achievement

On the chart there are the seven levels of achievement that you need to complete to go from zero to multi-million dollar empire builder. 

When you feel lost, when your business feels broken, when you’re not sure if you should hire, or what you should be focusing on – you can come right back to this Millionaire’s Journey Map and base your decisions on what level you’re at.

This is the key to your success! 

Never quit without getting the right resources!

So many folks who want to get into credit repair, they know they have what it takes to create a profitable business… so they put in the time, money, effort, and energy but they still can't get past having a business that’s just a side hustle. 

Too often, people who could have gotten all the way to our Millionaire’s Club, they quit way too soon because they just run out of resources. It’s incredibly frustrating!

But this Millionaire’s Journey Map shows you exactly where you are on the path to success. It shows you what you need to focus on at each level, and what you really need to master, all the way to your Millionaire’s Club award and beyond!

So, today, I’m going to go level by level through this chart, and as I do, I want you to identify what stage you’re on, look at where you are and what you need to accomplish BEFORE you’re ready to advance. 

See, if you move on to the next level without mastering EVERYTHING to the left of where you are, you’re going to get stuck, and your business will not grow. 

The thing to remember is, when most people look at this chart, they immediately look to see where they are, and then they focus on everything to the right. But I want you to start looking at everything to the left of where you are today. And this will probably uncover many areas that you really need to work on – and that’s a good thing!

Your business WILL feel broken each time you advance to a new level 

Always remember that this is normal! 

It happens because each time you progress to a new level on this journey, your focus completely shifts to something you may not be good at yet or something new to you, and as an entrepreneur, that can be really hard!

Another thing that’s going to happen is that each time you move to a new level, you are going to have to change and grow a lot as a person.  What you focus on will change, and how much you can handle will change. 

The truth is, it happens to me every time we grow to a new level at Credit Repair Cloud! It feels like everything is broken, including me.  This is all normal, and part of the journey to getting over here and making millions of dollars. 

The best thing to do is to focus on the level you’re at right now, learn the skills needed, do the work, get the results and advance - all while embracing the idea that if everything goes well and you keep growing, you’ll always feel like your business is broken! And that’s good.

But remember, you’re not alone. If you don’t quit, and if you keep your eye on the map here and make progress every day, you will master each of these levels, you will become an empire builder, you will get your millionaires club award and you will change a lot of lives!

How do I know when I should …. ? 

Are you an Apprentice, but wondering if you should start paid marketing? 

Well, take a look at the Millionaire’s Journey Map that you’ve downloaded! The answer is ... 

NO! Until you’re an Expert, you need to focus on affiliate traffic and referrals! 

Are you an Expert, but afraid to hire anybody? It’s time! 

Before I had the Millionaire’s Journey Map, I learned about hiring that the hard way. In fact, for the first ten years of my business, I did everything alone. When I finally launched Credit Repair Cloud – after so many failed attempts – it started to pick up, and I started selling the software. I thought, “WOW now it’s going to get easier.”

But the sad reality was, it didn't get easier at all. It got harder, because once there were customers to handle, I became more overwhelmed. 

What made it even worse was, I didn’t want anyone to know that it was just me. So I pretended to be an entire team. I was Phil on sales, I was Tammy on support, and I was horrible at it. In fact, all the customers hated Tammy! They’d email complaining about how horrible Tammy was – all the while not knowing it was really me in disguise, all along.

It was awful. I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating or bathing or shaving, and the stress was unbearable. Looking back, I wish I had never done that. It nearly killed me. I gained over a hundred pounds,  just from the stress of trying to do it all myself.  

So one of the biggest mistakes I made during those years was not hiring help.  

If you want to avoid the same mistakes I could’ve avoided, use the Millionaire’s Journey to reference and guide you along – every step of your way to success.  

So make sure to download and print your Millionaire’s Journey Map, if you haven’t already. Then, right away you should circle the stage you’re at AND circle the stage you want to be at one year from now. 

Then, EVERY SINGLE time you need to make a decision about marketing, team building, sales, or anything else, you look at this chart to see if it matches the stage you’re on. If it does - perfect! Go for it. If it doesn’t - JUST SAY NO! 

So, that’s it!! That’s the SECRET to reaching success, the right way!! 

By following the Millionaire’s Journey Map, you’ll be able to advance stages faster than you thought possible without a ton of costly mistakes!
