# Stuart Goldsmith had an interesting idea: He broke down the 28 steps from one cent to one Million dollars.

The idea is to use your creativity starting with nothing and build up to one million dollar net worth. First step could be found a penny on the ground. Then you can bet that penny with a friend and if you win you will have doubled the cent to two cents. Repeat the doubling process until you win. The first stages will be the easiest and then you will have to find a way to add value in one step or break the step into multiple parts to achieve a doubling of the larger dollar amounts.

## Here are the 28 Steps

Step 1: Find a cent lying on the ground

Step 2: 1 cent-2 cents

Step 3: 2 cents-4 cents

Step 4: 4 cents-8 cents

Step 5: 8 cents-16 cents

Step 6: 16 cents-32 cents

Step 7: 32 cents-64 cents

Step 8: 64 cents-$1.28

Step 9: $1.28-$2.56

Step 10: $2.56-$5.12 (Call it $5 to make it easier)

Step 11: $5-$10

Step 12: $10-$20

Step 13: $20-$40

Step 14: $40-$80

Step 15: $80-$160

Step 16: $160-$320

Step 17: $320-$640

Step 18: $640-$1,280

Step 19: $1280-$2560

Step 20: $2560-$5120 (Call it $5000 to make it easier)

Step 21: $5000-$10,000

Step 22: $10,000-$20,000

Step 23: $20,000-$40,000

Step 24: $40,000-$80,000

Step 25: $80,000-$160,000

Step 26: $160,000-$320,000

Step 27: $320,000-$640,000

Step 28: $640,000-$1280,000
