    Let's Talk Legal....Exemption Clauses?

    Disclaimer: This ain't legal advice. Consult your lawyer.:) I haven't seen many of them even in my freelance contracts, but a recent business law assignment triggered the issue in my mind. I'm currently studying English Common Law and Malaysian law (where it has provisions that don't need the...

    EXECUTION ZF's progress thread

    Alright, just as I said. I would post some results from my Reddit tests. It seems that the folks need to see something tangible. I still will need to develop a cheap prototype and have 50-100 batches. I spotted a competing product being used by someone from today's meeting. I borrowed it for a...

    OFF-TOPIC Wait....Grabcar did what???

    I opened my news feeds today, only to find some headlines blaring all about Grabcar buying Uber. The words 'monopoly' and 'corporate strategy' blew up in my head. Then I looked further, and found it was just the Southeast Asian Uber that got bought by Grab. Uber is selling its Southeast Asia...

    RANT Just When I Thought I Had it all Figured Out....

    Welp. I guess I have to make my bed and lie in it. I need to get this off my chest. Never in my life have I been so frustrated. I decided not to drop out of my tertiary studies. I would develop my business as I continued studying. Once the business could sustain me, I would drop out...

    Reselling Textbooks Can't be Fastlane! (Oh really...)

    Phew...been a long time since I posted a thread of my own. But DAMN am I exuberant! Damn, money came into my hands this morning! I can use it to do a Google AdWords test, get some samples plus a little inventory from AliBaba, pay for a Fastlane meetup (if you like to), get a nice pizza...

    things that go UNSCRIPTED

    In anticipation for @MJ DeMarco 's upcoming hit book UNSCRIPTED, I was full of excitement about the further discussions and insights his next book will bring. Not only will it discuss Slowlane mediocrity causes (or THE SCRIPT), it will definitely cut into the entrepreneural failure tumour and...

    Alternative to Paypal....Google Wallet?

    I might have some sales coming in, so I went to apply for a paypal account....and ran into a long messy tirade of browser mismanagement and email crap. Long story short, I discovered that I did try to open a paypal account years ago (for running away lol:wideyed::inpain::inpain::rofl:-I just...

    Hit a Slowlane in the Fastlane...hard

    I don't usually try to 'indoctrinate' Slowlaners, who think that joining MLMs, investing in mutual funds or buying stuff on the cheap will bring them financial haven, with the Fastlane. But sometimes one of the more staunch ones raises the pain points that set alarm bells ringing too...

    Sectors with the most complaints

    I don't copy-paste very often, but I was looking into customer service and complaints online, and I ran into this article on salesforce desk. Best read of the day! Now I know what's going on! I guess the excuse 'I don't know what to do for my Fastlane?' or 'I don't have connections or needs to...

    Remember SUCKS vs SUCS??

    It's been a long time since I posted! I'm collecting complaints left, right and centre. Complaints are trash and negative before Sidewalkers and Slowlaners, but to us, it's good as wealth provided we do something about it. I am positive that those complaints, even from big companies (which are...

    Freelancer to Dedicated Partner???

    The other day I was looking up on hiring code teams to do coding for me, since coding isn't my forte (and it eats lots of time too!). Currently for my gig I would be using plug-ins, but I would require more construction into order to satisfy the commandment of entry-building a website that isn't...

    Making a Difference the Wrong way

    Contrary to belief, we have had one or two experiences of selling before we got introduced to the Fastlane. Mine was a food fair at school. My class was tasked to put up a hotdog stall and a game stall (pinball!) On selling, some over-emphasize marketing and advertising to promote products even...

    Who Had a Great Black Friday (Not Buying!)

    I usually talk a fair bit, but today is different. I'm going to ask this one question: WHO HAD A GREAT DAY SELLING AND PULLING IN CUSTOMERS ON BLACK FRIDAY? It's not an event to us, it's just part of the process, unlike what Sidewalkers and even Slowlaners think. But some parts of the process...

    The Bigger they Are, The Harder they Fall!

    I was having a discussion with some Fastlaners, and the heavy topic of 'the market doesn't care what you like to do' came up. My cohorts stated that it was the bitter truth and that MJ was pretty honest about in the book. Then it hit me. We Fastlaners are always plagued and swamped by the...

    What do you See?

    My teacher used to complain loudly in class: 'all of you kids have the same books, same curriculum, same teachers, and yet why are you all scoring so differently?' I used to be puzzled by such a statement until recently. Much of my life was dominated by slowlane indoctrination. Whenever we saw...

    Don't be afraid to argue!

    No, I am not condoning violence! But I do recommend pragmatism. Dealing with people is a very vital key to Fastlane success. MJ was quite brief on it, but he was not writing a Dale Carnegie clone. (Do read how to win friends and influence people by Carnegie himself, it's good and he is a...

    FAILURE Follow the Need

    Now to think of it, this isn't the first time I have tried to execute a gig, let alone Fastlane. Before I discovered MJ's book and this forum, I signed up for some online business community called Wealthy Affliate. It focuses around building blogs and affliate marketing to create a lifestyle...

    WEB/DIGITAL Selling shovels time....virtual shovels?

    I'm sure you agree with me that it is a rarity that a brilliant individual comes up with the next big thing like the Model T or the PC. But what we can do is not to get on the bandwagon of people that gain fortunes in the craze of the event (such as the apps and Internet gold rush), although it...

    PUBLISHING Anyone has any experience in visual novels?

    Anyone heard of visual novels? They are like in-between-ners of normal black-and-white novels and comics. Has anyone dealt with such before? An ad for some anime app game appeared on my PC and when I retraced its origins to the company that made it, Type-Moon, it seemed to have been producing...
