When your grandparents lamented that a dollar just isn't a dollar anymore, they weren't just bellyaching. Inflation attacks the value of a dollar, reducing it as time goes by so that you need more dollars as time goes on. That is one of the reasons that $1 million is often thrown around as a retirement goal.

The upside is that it is easier to become a millionaire now than at any time before. While you won't be buying islands, it is still a goal worth shooting for. Keep reading to find out multiple ways to make your first million.
