Sometimes, as an aspiring entrepreneur, you need to come back down to Earth and realize -- you're not going to be a millionaire right away. 

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Evan Carmichael -- who, in his inspirational "Believe" video series, usually talks about ways to make tons of money and strategies to massive growth in your business -- says it's OK to pair down your thinking, financially speaking. 

Here, he gives three tips on how to go from dead broke to five figures in five months. First, get away from your startup spreadsheets and websites and get out and talk to actual potential customers. Next, be sure to network with influencers. And finally, tell your story -- how you got to this point, your history, your motivation, etc., because "people like to buy from people," Carmichael says.
