Well I deleted the post but someone did read it and contacted me the next day and told his wife what I said and she was very excited over it. So that was good.
In return he shared some info with me that was pretty handy.
Anyways I got about 10 emails on this site about what I told the guy. I don't feel comfortable sharing it here and IMO not really a fast lane idea. It was more if a get yourself out of the hole idea anyways.
By the way I came across this guys youtube page. Redneck Picker. I watched just about all his videos at work today. Nothing he talks about is FastLane stuff but this guy finds a way to make money with everything. In these troubled economic times I think everyone should be watching his videos. Not to mention I found it really motivating.
Some people are beyond help. I remember a quote somewhere saying that at least 100 people in the world have had the same idea you have, 90 of them are too lazy, 8 too incompetent. That just leaves you and your competitor
Out of interest, what other forum was it?
So did anyone ever find out what the idea was?
Some are destined to be roadkill on the road (or fastlane) of life.
I have a Gamecube game that cost me $40 that now costs $200 because it is a rare game.
I went to the swap meet and saw the same gamcube game, and I paid only 5 bucks for it. When the seller didnt really now that the game he was selling was worth over $100+.
Im not going to sell it because I love video games.

Hey if he doesn't want the step-by-step help, I'll take it. I promise I won't laugh
On a serious note though...A LOT of people are like the guy you mentioned. People say they need help but are too stubborn to actually accept it.
You can't help somebody who doesn't really want help.
Sorry to hear you got burned like that, was this all because he felt insulted by you saying that you don't allow Wal-Mart products in your home?
I don't want to be mean ... but he didn't asked for your advice.
The best advice you can give to a fat guy? Go to gym and get slim.
The best advice you can give to someone with low self-esteem? Do something to improve it.
The best advice you can give to a girl in a damaging relationship? Find someone else.
In 99.9% of the cases, no one will follow your advice. So I stop giving them long time ago. I give advice to those who request it and those in my immediate circle (as in family) who actually needs it.
I can give you an idea for $100.000/year.
I can show you from where you can get the best education of your life (the book list from sivers.org)
I can summarize three years of my life in which I've tried to learn how to live effectively in a few sentences. Understand it and you'll have a wonderful life.
Does anyone want to hear for my advice? I doubt it.
Does anyone care? I doubt it.
Because the last time I've checked, people weren't the most rational beings.
As a marketer / copywriter, I know that people are highly ressistent to change. I know that if a guy things 1 + 1 = 3, then it's 3. You can be the best authority in mathematics in the world, for him it's still 3.
If a guy thinks the world is full of whores and he can't find a wife no matter how much he's looking, no matter the amount of proof and arguments you bring him, he will act accordingly to his belief.
And if he beliefs a certain set of facts about him and his situation, you can give him 100 ideas, that won't change a thing. Go to any book store / library and you'll find books containing the seeds to be happy, rich, sexy, smart, etc.
PS: Some people can't understand why a Macbook is better than an normal PC.
Some people can't understand why a BlackBerry is better than a Android phone for business purposes and that a phone's quality is not measured in the quality of the camera.
And if you try to explain them why, you'll just lose your time. In the end, it's not my duty, it's not yours to change the world.
Everyman has his own paradigm about life. As he gets older, his paradigm crystallizes and he fears new ideas and new ways of thinking. You can teach a man to fish only if he thinks fishing can be taught.
Just to get in on this before the ebook / seminar blows up, I would be eternally grateful for ANY specific advice on setting up an additional modest cashflow . Heck, I'd even give the advice-giver a sizable cut on our first venture together just for giving me advice. So it's not all thankless hobos in the world . But I'm serious though, I know I'm new to this forum, but I'm ready to get going on the fastlane (just considering the best options for first venture now; will probably make separate thread soon).
