I can't speak from personal experience.
Most people I've known/met who have achieved the $1M mark took many, MANY years to get there. Years of work and schooling and entrepreneurship and sweat and stress and so on.
I know plenty of folks who earn >$1M per year, consistently. And just a few that have started up new businesses and got them revving up to $1M in less than 6 months. But those people... they're not starting from scratch, and they're not making it up as they go along either.
You know, that guy who invented pet rocks, he earned a million dollars from that
