Life in the Fastlane
I didn't do well. I know that, but I realize that this continues. The learning continues. The growth goes on, and I'm not ashamed - not even close.
I probably made a total of $500, and that was from freelancing. Not exactly Fast Lane material. The book I'm writing, my real Fast Lane project, is still underway. This is a process.
