    NOTABLE! Perfectionism is a plague, introducing Johnny Neverstart!

    People do distrust telemarketers. And often the people are either busy running the business or annoyed that you interrupted their facebook binge. I am in charge of marketing for a small company. I'm usually quite busy. I often get calls from people trying to sell us their services. Within a...

    BOOK Mark Manson's "Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck"

    I wouldn't say it was the most impacting book I ever read, but I did find it helpful and am glad I read it. Greater focus was the result for me once I understood that I only have so much f*ck to give, so I better spend it wisely.

    I am only working 3 hours a day!

    I run into this sometimes. For me it comes down to not planning ahead far enough. For example, if I finish some tasks earlier then expected, but my next action is an item that really should be broken down into multiple steps, I'll wander and waste time. If I start my day and that "next action"...

    How was your high school experience

    Don't drop out of school. I barely made it through only because of my test scores, doing as little homework as possible. The learning part was too easy. Despite this, the one thing high school could have taught me was discipline, and I struggled with it for years to come. I didn't want to do...

    Right now I'm reading "Be Obsessed or be Average" by Grant Cardone. He talks about writing \your goals out daily first thing so that they are always in the forefront of your mind. I know I need to do this because I will often lose focus if I go more than a few days without spending time with...

    INTRO Divorced and Looking to get out of the Rat Race

    If you are already in IT, Wordpress will likely be a piece of cake for you. You can do a lot with Wordpress alone, especially with pre-made themes. Wordpress is often used for the basis of a lot of professional sites even if the intent is to customize it with HTML/CSS to the point where it...

    In case you didn't know already, some inexpensive lighting can do a lot for the quality of photos/videos. I don't know whats available in your country, but something like this is what I use: I've found that 100W clear incandescent bulbs have a better color balance than using fluorescent or...

    INTRO Divorced and Looking to get out of the Rat Race

    Welcome to the forum! While some of the business activities you mentioned aren't "fastlane", most of us have (or had) to do other things to support ourselves throughout the process. Affiliate Marketing would not be my first choice with all of the noise on the internet now days, but I have no...

    Struggle to move forward every week? Get ACCOUNTABLE like Legendary Fastlaners do...

    I appreciate the offer. Unfortunately the partner I had kept flaking out on our calls, so I'm looking for a new partner. It was a bummer, I've gained quite a bit of momentum because of this, but apparently the other party did not feel it was worth their time. So even if it doesn't end up...

    I checked my local libraries website. They have a small business resource center with an impressive looking list of available directories, databases and business legal resources to name a few. Looks like I'm going to be spending a bunch of time at the library!

    I can relate to that! I found TMF and this forum shortly after meeting the woman who is now my wife! She is a very talented and successful person and being with her made me realize I had been living a life that was mediocre at best, and lazy.
