Like water or air, money has also become an essential element to survive in modern society. Therefore, it is very common to not be able to achieve your goals due to lack of money.
Luckily, today it is possible to ask millionaires for financial help, and it is not as difficult as you may think.
Why would a millionaire give you their money?
Earning your money is great, and it’s what anyone would want. Remember that nothing will make you feel better than treating yourself after hard work. However, you are not always on the side of fortune. There are times when people have no choice but to seek financial help out there, and perhaps one of the best ways to do so is to ask a billionaire for financial aid.
Contrary to popular belief, the world’s richest people are philanthropic and interested in helping others (they do so daily). But wait! Asking a millionaire for help is not the same as requesting your participation in the SNAP program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or knocking on a neighbour’s door to see if he can lend you the mower.
Do you need a millionaire’s money?
Why is it important to determine this? Because if you have a stable source of income and decide to seek financial help from millionaires, you could be charged with extortion. Millionaires only help those who are in real need of money. So the best thing is that you don’t embarrass yourself. Instead, you can ask these people you admire so much for advice or a job opportunity.
How to borrow money from a millionaire?
There is no protocol or an exact way of acting for a millionaire to lend you money, but there are ways to increase the chances of success. We leave you a few:
Have good intentions
These millionaires have a lot of money. This does not make them a bank that gives money away. Remember that they have worked – and still work – very hard to earn it, so it is understandable that they would not give it to just anyone who asked for it.
Do not exaggerate the amount
Just because a millionaire is willing to help others doesn’t mean they will write a check for millions. We can’t say the limit of money you could request because there is no written rule. Our best advice? Don’t ask for more than you need and, if possible, try to support the request. How? With a quote or an invoice, for example.
First, be honest
If a millionaire reaches out to you and then finds out you lied, two things could happen: You could face a lawsuit for extortion or fraud in court and perhaps even jail time.
Your experience will make him so suspicious that he might decide not to help anyone else in the future. In some cases, even both happen simultaneously. So please be honest from start to finish.
Keep a polite tone
You must be polite. Remember that it is not your money, and the millionaire is not obligated to give it to anyone if he wants it. What does this mean? You should not send an e-mail with phrases that could be interpreted as a requirement. Instead, it’s in your best interest to maintain a courteous tone. That kindness could add points to your cause and thus increase your chances of receiving help.
After all, you are not writing to an old friend or someone in your family. The content should be concise and go straight to the point. Try to use appropriate language, do not use popular jargon or unofficial language. Remember one thing: if the recipient is from the UK, you’ll want to use British English to make your message as clear as possible.
Structure of the e-mail
The main thing is the salutation; be brief and polite. The first paragraph starts with a thank you for taking the time to read your e-mail. Do not exceed two or three sentences. Please introduce yourself and tell them your name and the reason for the e-mail.
Second, explain what you will do with the money in detail. Please don’t make the explanation too long, or at least make it two or three paragraphs. As an added value, comment on whether you will use the money to help someone else. Finally, say goodbye and show that you value the time spent again and the possible help it will give you.
