    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...

    EXECUTION It all starts with a name

    Due to the nature of this idea of mine, I'll have to be a bit vague throughout this process thread until it gets off the ground. Current goals for this week: - Settle on a name for the company - Secure hosting and a domain for the website, and have a functional website up - Create a rough...

    INTRO A New Paradigm

    It was the summer of 2014 at the SIB Library in NYC that I stumbled upon the “The Millionaire Fastlane” by MJ Demarco as I was skimming through the Business section. My first reaction was that it may be another one of those financial books that advocated cut throat expense cutting, maximizing...

    F*ck This Process?

    Is there such thing as an F This Process without culminating in a F This Event? Considering the right process is the foundation of the desired events, Can you nudge yourself with an F This Process and gradually gain the same result as having an FTE? I’ve read both TMF & Unscripted, and the FT...

    You want to KNOW what a REAL FTE looks like? (FTE)

    Today I had one of the WORST DAYS in my life. I stood up around 06.00 AM and worked from 07.30 AM till 03.00 PM. Around this time alot happend. I'm working in Retail, so customer-contact is direct - 100 % face-to-face. An old Lady came in and told me she will pay X € for here Drinks. I said...

    INTRO Wild Dreams, Desperation, FTE, And (Hopefully)... Fastlane?

    Hello friends. I'm glad to be a part of this forum where I can learn and discuss with real entrepreneurs. Outside it's hard to find people who can give you "real" entrepreneurial wisdom because most people aren't even into entrepreneurship. Anyway, so you can know me too. I'm a 23-year old...

    I did it again... A tale of addiction to the slowlane (and detox)

    Hi felow fastlaners, First of all I want to admit here I am an addict. My drug? The slowlane. I know it is bad for my health, it will enslave me, it will make you unhappy and it will prevent me for being happy, but in moments of weakness I have gone back to it again and again. But, like any...

    INTRO "I'm pregnant"

    An FTE for sure! My wife called me with these two thrilling, intoxicating and downright scary little words just over 3 months ago. I knocked over my chair in a hipster coffee shop, hopped on a Bird scooter and floored it home! I don't really like talking about myself or my goals (probably...

    I executed! Am I growing too fast now?

    Hey all, Forgive me if I haven't followed the right etiquette, I'm relatively new to the forum. However, I'll get to the point. I started my business 2 years ago whilst working a full time job and read as much as I could about building a scalable business (including MFL and Unscripted). I...

    INTRO Legal Entrepreneur in Mexico

    Hello everyone! After spending a few days reading through the forum, I finally got the courage to write about me (this is the first online forum I have ever written on): I am a lawyer in Mexico. I am currently working in the Federal Government, where my main activity is to draft judgments or...

    Th F*ck This Event

    I’ve been re-reading Unscripted over the past few days, because just like MJ says it’s easy to start and make statements and never follow through. Action fakes all day. I’ve been struggling with that lately. Less motivation, feeling trapped, feeling complacenet, etc. So I re-read the chapter...

    My FTE is here! ...Do I take the money and run?

    I wondered if this day would come, some event that signals "F__K THIS!". I'm a full-time software developer for a local software company. Great people and environment, but I've done the Mon-Fri scripted life for too many years. A recent company restructuring as left me with two options...

    INTRO The Moment

    It is with some reluctance that I am here to report that I have finally had my, F*ck You Moment. I use the word, reluctance, because I am married to a member of this forum who has been word-barfing the contents of this place for about the last three years… I was not listening. I’m a stubborn...

    EXECUTION Adding More Zero’s – Journey to Market Disruption and Building Generational Change

    I have been humming and hawing about making this post for a while. In the end I decided that it would be more of a benefit to me to go ahead with it. This is a way for me to compile what I am doing in a way that should keep my a$$ in gear, and moving forward. I promise that future updates will...

    It really is 100% mindset. How 2017 blew it out of the water, and will look like nothing vs. 2018

    So many successful people mention how mindset is such a huge factor to their success. Then the usual replies follow. All the successful people chime in with just how true that is. Then all the people who are still struggling chime in with comments like this (I know because this was me, at...

    FTE

    7:32am interstate 202 west bound exiting for the i-10. 6 mph to stand still traffic is all around me. A monkey suit clings to my slightly in shape body. I'm staring at a crack in my front window about 16 inches wide. Along with 37 splatter marks where bugs landed right before their death. The...

    Producerism vs. Consumerism

    With all the free time I have now(because of losing my job), I've been "hitting the books" hard! I'm very close to completing my Udemy course on web development. I thank the good lord that I had a 401k to keep me afloat during this time. It's given me an opportunity to develop new skills. But...

    Power Lies Within

    “Ya’ll running from obstacles, when in fact, its the obstacles that will take you to the next challenge.” - Eric Thomas Once upon a time… I action-faked a lot. I would often do everything I thought was necessary to get things started with business, and then when it came to execution, I...

    OFF-TOPIC Unpleasant Truths...

    Here is my idea.. Post an unpleasant truth, and just maybe it will inspire a FTE (F*ck this event) for a fellow forum member. The only rule is that the information posted is factual and unpleasant. I'll start it off... The U.S military lost $6.5 trillion dollars due to "accounting mistakes"...

    INTRO My Developing Story

    We learn a lot through stories. I love reading about other people's stories too. I figured that this is a great way to let people know what you're about. So here's my formal introduction to this forum. I came from a middle class family, my mom was a registered nurse but worked as a teacher and...
