    How to avoid the slowlane when everyone pushes it?

    SLOWLANE 
    Currently in highschool and haven't learned a thing in the last 2-3 years of school, except for math. I originally wanted to get a computer science degree, which could lead to the fast lane as I could use programming for business but I'd prefer not to. I'm stuck in between wanting to start a...

    Does going down the Fastlane mean holding off on life?

    MINDSET PEOPLE RANT 
    I know the decision is my own and I’d like to hear your input. I’ve sacrificed a lot these last 6 months. I saved a little cash, moved from NJ to GA for both business and personal reasons, and am currently learning web development to familiarize myself with CENTS (even though freelancing...

    This is how the school system kept us in the slow lane.

    MINDSET 
    You probably have heard things like, “The A students work for the C students.” Which Carrie’s some truth to it, but what it really means is that the ones that didn’t follow orders and had the critical thinking to ask themselves: “Why am I learning this?” “Will this even help me in life?” “How...

    Can you be a little bit slow and fastlane at the same time?

    INTRO 
    Hi all, So I've just finished TMF and it's actually blown my mind. I'm going to have to take a few days and probably read it again to process to be honest. Personally, based on the roadmaps, I'm somewhere between the sidewalk and the slow lane. I got a job out of school selling luxury cars...

    SLOWLANE 
    Hi guys, I was wondering how jobs that usually require you to perform additional work at home, effect you working on your own business. My job is in real estate, and usually requires me working on additional tasks at home (analysis, rent/sales comparables, using the MLS etc.) What was your...

    2 Million Dollars....at 98 years old

    Just saw this on Facebook, made me think of TMF: Chicago man, 98, turns $1,000 in stock into $2 million and donates it all to wildlife I respect this mans philanthropy no doubt, but it took 70 years for that $1k to become $2m, and he's almost a hundred. I couldn't imagine he'd have any other...
