-Millionaire Mike Black embarked on a daring social experiment, intentionally becoming homeless to prove he could make $1 million in a year
-However, concerns about his health led him to end the challenge early after facing the harsh realities of homelessness and his own health issues
-Despite falling short of his financial goal, Black said his journey showcased the power of determination and the importance of health and family


A millionaire who deliberately made himself broke and homeless in a bizarre social experiment designed to rack up YouTube hits has suddenly quit his challenge after concerns over his health.

Mike Black had planned to essentially start over from nothing, while proving to himself that he would be able to make $1 million in the space of just 12 months.

Black had been an entrepreneur his entire life, but in July 2020 decided to walk away from everything giving up his car, house and all of his money.

I knew a lot of people who lost everything during the pandemic and they got really depressed. I even had a friend that lost a $10 million business overnight', Black explained in a YouTube video.

Black wanted to help his friends rebuild their lives and prove that luck or money was not necessary to become a millionaire - just hard work.

But Black ended his challenge after it took a toll on his health.

'I have officially decided to end the project early. Now as much as it hurts me to do this, especially with just two months left, I feel like it's the right thing to do,' he announced on YouTube.

'I've been dealing with a lot of things personally, and recently something's happened that has really pushed me over the edge.

'My personal health has declined to the point where I really need to start taking care of it. Throughout the entire project, we haven't shared it with you, but I've been in and out of the doctor's office.'

Black explained how he also suffered from two autoimmune diseases which caused 'chronic fatigue' and another that attacked his joints.

'A lot of what's come to light for me is what truly matters, health and gratitude,' he said.

Black's idea was the 'Million Dollar Comeback Challenge' that would see him start from nothing, only to build a new business, growing it to be worth one million dollars in the space of a year.

But the challenge was far harder than Black could ever have anticipated.

From the very first day as a homeless man he experienced how rough life was out on the streets and contemplated sleeping on a bench.

People refused to give him water and he was unable to find a place to stay the night.

Eventually, a man with an RV allowed him to stay for several nights in his van.

Black started off small and managed to make his first $300 by selling furniture online.

'One of the best things to sell are tables,' Black explained. 'I started taking ads on Craigslist in the free section, putting it on Facebook Marketplace and selling it for a profit.

'I acted as the middleman, handling all the logistics between the buyer and the seller.'

By the fifth day of the challenge he had made enough money to buy himself a computer.

Almost two weeks in, he was able to secure his own office space and after just over one month, Black finally had his own place to rent.

Three months into the challenge, Black's entrepreneurial spirit appeared to shine through having set himself up as a social media manager, managing to land clients - while even coming up with his own brand of coffee.

'Look at where we're at right now. We're not making millions of dollars but look at this gonna be living potentially in a mansion rent free. I'm getting on calls with big tech companies pitching them on running their social media. I'm starting a coffee brand I have a coffee dude in Austin now,' Black said.

'I mean everything's going in the right direction. Three months ago I was homeless!'

Four months into the challenge, on day 138, Black learned that his father was officially diagnosed with stage four colon cancer and had just started chemo which led Black to question the entire project - but he continued.

'Health and Family were much more important than the challenge so I decided to stop the whole project.'

Black ended the challenge having completed 10 months, with just 60 days left to run. He had managed to make a grand total of $64,000.

Despite failing to make the million dollars he had aimed for, Black says it was still a successful experiment after demonstrating how it was possible to rebuild his life through the power of determination.

'We should always remember to help those in need because it could be the opportunity that they need,' Black said.

What a BS experiment.

He basically sugar coated his plan to set out to prove that homeless people simply aren't working hard enough to get out of their situation.

And he doesn't even fully start from the bottom to make that happen --and yet, still didn't complete the task.

Man got a tough life lesson

Life is hard rather you are broke or rich and the only thing that softens the blows is money in the bank

With no money it makes it harder to overcome and most importantly keep going..64k in 10 months ain't bad though

I like the experiment. The crux is that most ppl don't have the experience and knowledge to do what he did flipping the Craigslist sh1t. He came from something, where he knew possibilities. They come from nothing where they know nothing.

It definitely shows, you don't need to be smart to be a millionaire

It's all about luck, connections and upbringing

64,000 in 10 months ain’t bad. Props for putting his money where his mouth is and giving it a shot. Most people just cry life is too hard because it’s easier than actually trying.
