    Social Media Wantrepreneurs & Surviver Bias

    One of the biggest issues I have noticed with those looking to start a business and become entrepreneurs in this day and age is the fact that those with online businesses scream the loudest. If you are a young dude/girl growing up having spent most of your life with a small amount or very little...

    Has anyone checked out the Amazon Marketplace Appstore?

    I don't have an Amazon seller account, and it seems that I can't browse the Marketplace Appstore without one. Had an idea of building something for Amazon sellers so I wanted to see what kinds of extensions and integrations are already there, especially around social media marketing. Can...

    Should I open up a company to my personal brand?

    So real quick. I've read many times that one of the big reasons one opens up a company is that in case you get sued, the company gets sued instead of your person. If I'm planning on building a personal brand (it focuses on instagram management for businesses), should I treat it as a company...

    The ultimate, constantly fresh list of online communities about social media, digital marketing and

    I compiled a list of communities about digital marketing, social media management or any other form of online entrepreneurship (naturally, FastLane is in it). This list was started for my own personal needs, but I soon realized it would be a useful resource to anyone interested in building a...

    Observations from working in the business of content creation. (Music Videos, Commercials, Social )

    Hey all, I work in the business of creating video and film content for musicians, businesses & brands, and sometimes I just make films for fun with my closest friends. I'm not a director in the usual sense. That's usually the question I get from people. Instead, I produce. I handle the...

    EXECUTION Goal to 100 Social Media Marketing Clients in 2019

    Whatsup everyone. I've done several threads here on Instagram management. I've been handling that social media platform for well over 4-5 years now and, although I didn't reach 6 figures I was very very close to it. Last year, I went through training for the other social media platforms and...

    Social Media Marketing Agency - First Client and Doubts

    Hello Fastlaners! This is one of my first posts at this forum, however it's been few years since I've encountered The Fastlane concept and MJ DeMarco's writings. I've managed to have a tentative deal with one travel agency owner in central European country. I've started company's instagram...

    Where to Start with Instagram 2019

    About me: I've been using Instagram since the first year it came out, but only with a personal account. I didn't want strangers following me, just friends. The app itself was all I ever needed for liking, commenting, and adding my own media. Now that I'm trying to grow a business profile, I'm...

    Not sure if I should offer SEO, web design or social media services

    Hi everyone. I'm moving to Miami around January to start a program at a college and possibly work part-time. I've sadly been a lurker for about a year (but read both books) and occasionally "started" things like setting up a social media marketing agency (SMMA) but didn't get far, as you can see...

    MEETUPS I Would Love To Hear Your Opinion On Social Media Platforms

    Hello all! Let's just get straight to the point, I don't need an extensive introduction, I will keep it short and simple. A lot of the marketing I do is strictly through Social Media, and I often times ponder a very particular question that I'm sure many others have as well. Which Social Media...

    EXECUTION Road to $500k/mo with Social Media as a Side Hustle

    Premise: There seems to be a whitespace in an industry that's supersaturated with bro-marketers and terrible products. Based on similar brands in this space, $500k/mo is doable as a 5 year goal. With the first year, ending at $10k/mo, using a subscription based model. This is not taking into...

    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...

    EXECUTION Growing a Lifestyle Brand

    Hey everyone! This is Andrew and I've recently got back into something I started a while back. When I started it was just an instagram page that posted motivational quotes and other things like that. Since I've began getting more serious about it, I am working on expanding it across different...
