    Introduction: Juan Galvez

    Greetings to all who stumble upon this thread. It’s an absolute pleasure to be here. My name is Juan Galvez and I am an ambitious 20 year old. I was born in Cuba and had the privilege of being brought to the United States at 5 years old. Despite that life wasn’t easy just because we made it to...

    Starting a Mobile Car Detailing Business

    It was after I received an email from a retailer, denying my part-time job application, when I felt the pressure rising. My micro-FTE. A few days earlier, I remember feeling a sense of relief when I got the interview, I was so convinced I’d be working again. I was supposed to go and apply to...

    The power of a FTE (& this forum)

    Hello everyone, Today I would like to talk about my experience after having had what I would definitely call a "FTE". While I don't feel comfortable talking about the exact details of this event (let's just say it was pathetic, embarrassing & stupid...), it happened about 30 days ago. While I...

    An introduction consisting of no less than SIX FTE's.

    Hi All, I just joined the forum even though it's been months since I finished MJ's latest book, The Great Rat Race Escape. I'm a software developer approaching his mid-30's currently based in Colorado, and over the past several years, I've encountered somewhat of a midlife crisis with regards...

    The Start of Something Beautiful

    Not sure if this is the right forum section for this post, but let me know and I'll move it to the appropriate section. Hello good folks of FLF! A couple months ago I posted about my learning about the FI community and entrepreneurship and how scared I was to get started. Well, I think I've...

    What if you've never had your FTE?

    Is it still possible for someone who has never experienced their FTE (only FTMs or "F*ck This Moments") to still have the drive and willpower to succeed in pursuing Fastlane? What do you think are ways to induce this for those who have not had their FTE? Is there a way to purposefully make it...

    Loss after Loss, help!

    Yo guys, it's been a while since I've been on here, but have been struggling a lot recently. I have jumped into real estate full time, and in the past year, I have acquired 30 rental properties, with my latest being an apartment complex. I'm currently flipping 3 houses, and do a lot of real...

    What I thought was my FTE... and my ACTUAL FTE

    Hello all, I have been on the sidelines soaking in the goodness from this forum, and of course the books from MJ DeMarco. Part of me feels bad not taking action sooner, but another bigger part of me is ok with it. Explanation below: In my 20s I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer... had...

    Sales = Magic Pill to Entrepreneurship?

    Hello Everyone I vividly remember the "wake-up-moment" I've had after my first time reading the Millionaire Fastlane while studying for my engineering degree. Being young, uneducated and maybe even really naive about my future, I thought that this paper called degree would be my ticket to a...

    my fte (f*ck this event)

    Hi everyone, I just joined the Fastlane forum and wanted to introduce myself. The straight facts are that I need a change. I'm very unhappy with the path I am on. I am 20 years old, currently in the first year of my business degree, and just recently got a new job as an insurance broker. Sweet...

    Moving out of my parents house after graduating - any advice?

    I have been living with my family for the past one year. I moved back in with them after graduating from college. I currently work with my family business making $13 an hour, and have been working full time while looking for IT jobs (my field of study). However, after a year of saving money and...

    I quit... and now what?

    Hey everyone, actually, I wanted to wait until I have read the books, and then introduce myself here. To then be able to talk properly. But after reading I would have had to think about the books first, let everything sink in. And, actually, I wanted to become an Insider in 2 weeks anyway, so...

    My Big FTE Moment

    My Big FTE Moment I’m incredibly happy that I found MJ DeMarco’s books and this forum, even if it’s 25 years later than I would have liked. I have been an engineer, inventor, and problem solver since the early 1990’s, but usually (okay, always) for other people. My burning desire to solve...

    FTE's Are The Catalyst, Not the Change.

    Today you realize life is shit. You have no money. Your boss is an a**hole. You hate your job. Your family thinks you're a loser. You're drowning under a pile of debt. Your girlfriend left you for a real man with a real job and a real body or whatever. But unlike other days, today is different...

  17. Equilibrium

    I made bank writing. My account was shadowbanned after rising popularity.

    Just another reminder not to rely on other platforms folks. For the past year I've been making side money writing. I have no intention on making full-time income from writing and did it just bring attention to issues I did not rely on this income nor do I intend to in the future. Writing is not...

    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...

    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...

    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...
