    EXECUTION Building a Second Income Before the Second Kid

    SELF-EMPLOYED ---> NEEDS MORE AUTOMATED SALES: I was talking with a client last week...he had just gotten back from a 2-week vacation in Maine (beautiful state!). He was a bit flustered. Right now, 90% of his revenue each month comes from doing LIVE webinars. These webinars work great...but...

    The End of all Sidewalk/Slowlane Bashing

    I see a ton of posts on this Forum from people pointing and laughing at Slowlaners and Sidewalkers because they haven't "Seen the light." I used to do this too... When I lived in Charlotte, NC, I'd ride the train to my mind-numbing financial analyst job in the Hearst Tower. I'd be reading 4...

    NOTABLE! 6-Figures In 12 Months Copywriting. Quit Job. Here's How I Did It:

    I stumbled back on the Forum from some late night reading. Figured I could share my story. Even if it helps just one person. In no way am I some 'hot shot millionaire.' Not even close. But, this past year has been life-changing, and could help you. If you look at my profile, I haven't been on...

    Where's the Line between Hustling for Free Advertising and Spam?

    I'm having trouble ethically with this question. For a product I'm working on and collecting beta users, a good channel can be Meetup (as people openly tell you what they're interested in). I've found a couple groups of potential users and have gone through the list of members, done a bit of...

    Owner thought I was Information Panhandling during Idea Extraction

    My wife and I are in the midst of getting our living room painted and we received some in-house bids, but I wanted to get some more. I went on BBB (Business bureau) and found you can request quotes from there. I realized you can get into contact with the owners much faster there. After...

    This guy literally lays Golden Eggs

    I've never heard of this guy until today, you probably haven't either. Today billion dollar Zillow and Trulia combined for over 3 billion in stock and the man leading the charge... Rich Barton? One hit wonder right? Hell no, this guy started Expedia while under the wing of Bill Gates, built...

    This WILL Cause your Bank Account to Go to $0..

    @MJ DeMarco wrote an interesting post in a thread about the SCARCITY mindset I grew up in a family of 11 kids so money wasn't given out like candy. Thus, I've grown up with a Scarcity Mindset when it comes to money. It's weird, as I'm a usually a highly optimistic person, but ever since...

    "Yes, I'm a pioneer of Online Business... Join my MLM?"

    I was talking to a friend who's been in the online industry for quite some time actually, we were warming up for our softball game last night [got crushed unfortunately] and he said, "You won't believe who just called me." I ask, "Who?" "XXX." [won't say his name for obvious reasons] He was...

    EXECUTION Opportunity for Mass Media? Tech to save children in hot cars.

    Hey guys, we had a thread going here [https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/warning-disturbing-story-i-felt-bad-for-this-guy-at-first.53203/] and I had mentioned that there should be a product that sensors if there are kids in the car to alert the owner and authorities. @MJDemarco...

    Can you flip Groupon?

    I've seen a lot of threads talking about e-commerce and hustling craigslist and such (CC: @RichKid), Have you ever bought items for cheap on Groupon and flipped them? Would that be easier than scrolling through Craigslist and meeting people in Parking lots? [Plus you can startup on a Credit...

    Pre-Sale from large company?

    I've read here a bunch about pre-selling after you've found a problem. Have you ever secured a pre-sale or start-up investment from a large company e.g. a Bed Bath and beyond, Target etc. If its a struggling company, would they be more willing to invest 25k or so to try a new lead gen or...

    Easy way to get access to experts and maybe VCs....

    I was working on an idea for a product for hanging a guitar on the wall without having to drill holes in the wall (what most guitarists have to do to hang it, myself included). I was hoping to use magnets and perhaps just a pin to hold up the 15lb guitar. For me its always been a pain to have to...

    INTRO I've read enough books and interviewed enough millionaires...

    Hi , my name is Joe Cassandra. I read MJ's book about a year ago and introduced to the idea of entrepreneurship a couple years ago when I saw the Social Network and realized you can build a future (I grew up in Slowlane city). Although a movie, it introduced a new way of thinking as I just...

    Is this idea too competitive? Innovate the same old shopping experience.

    I joined the fastlane forum a year ago after reading MJ's book but just have read not interacted (I'll need to go make an introduction :D) A big issue holding me back was I couldn't think of an idea that filled a need but also one I felt would be exciting to go for the long-haul. An excuse, but...
