    It's NOT about money. It's about Freedom & Control

    Woke up today at 8am, without alarm. The first thing I saw was my 7 months old son smiling at me and sucking my shirt. What a wonderful start. Slowly the day started. The giggling of my son, my wife calling me, hugging me and saying sweet words in the first 30 mins of my day. My parents and...

    Disregarded Control in CENTS. The consequences.

    This post is for anyone who wants to ignore Control in CENTS in their Fastlane business, like I did. I've been in my fastlane for several months now and have/had a few hurdles to overcome. A few skillset hurdles, but above all a lot of mental hurdles. Procrastination, self-doubt, lack of...

Lately I've been thinking about creating a YouTube channel and getting started with a "content-system" business model.

    Question for MJ DeMarco

    Hey MJ, In 'The Millionaire Fastlane', you write about the risks, downsides and perils of "hitchhiking" on someone else's business. I understand that it's not wise to ride on the coat tails of someone else's business as it means you're at their mercy and they can change the rules or switch...

    Does a service business violate the rule of Control?

    According to Millionaire Fastlane, you want to CONTROL your business asset. Without it, you're just an operator working for the business. Makes sense (or is it CENTS? :) ). And yet, if you're working on a service business like an ad agency or web design business, you run into customers that...

    Need some Advice/Ideas to gain control

    So, i just read the chapter about "Control" and i realised that i rely to much on youtube. I can't figure out how i could gain more control of my business instead of just relying on youtube. Thanks for any advice.

    Control > ENTS

    a Twitter tool making $1M+ ARR was recently shut off overnight by their API overlord: Access has since been restored, but this serves as yet another reminder to never have your business lie solely in the hands of any: - API - License agreement - Affiliate merchant - eCommerce platform/vendor...

    You always give up a piece of control with an internet business, don't you?

    Hey, in the book "The Milionars Fastlane" one capital is about the control you should always have yourself. But if you build a website, for example, through WordPress, then you also give up control there, because you give WordPress the power. And then with traffic, you don't always have the...

    I violated CENTS and my business failed..

    My first product failed and I lost a lot of money on it. Now I’m looking back at what went wrong to make sure I don’t make the same mistakes for the new business I’m starting. Well, all I really had to do was a CENTS analysis and it became clear very fast! First Business (Amazon FBA Product)...

    Primary vendor raising its costs by 150% forces innovation (command of Control)

    Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be looking around for how I can eliminate my reliance on this particular vendor. For about three years, the service they provided me with has been a perfect fit for my system, a perfect cog in my business wheel. They wrote that they're raising my cost per...

    a lesson about control from my 9-5

    Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I work in Software sales as an SDR, I essentially build pipeline through outbound activity (cold calling). A couple weeks ago they changed our commission structure so that deals that don't close by the 30th won't yield commission. And our sales...

    Huawei : How lack of Control hits hard on a bigger scale.

    Huawei got hit by Trump's banhammer. A lot of people are putting the fault on Google (it's not Google's fault). Here are the facts: -Android is Open Source. Huawei will keep access to latest updates, they just won't have access to Google softwares (It has been said Huawei would keep access to...

    Is CENTS Destructive to Action?

    Over the years I've read thousands of introductions here. A common thread I'm seeing follows the following format: A) I have 3 ideas, X,Y, and Z. B) None of them meet CENTS. C) X is missing entry, Y is missing scale, and Z is missing a mix of both. D) I don't know what to do. The end result...
