    My Entrepreneurial Diary

    INTRO 
    I’ve been on this forum for almost a year now. Reading different interesting posts and comments which taught me a lot, inspired me or motivated me. For all this time, I’ve never engaged with anyone and wasn’t sure I could bring any value in to this forum (due to my experience). Today will be...

    Copywriting/Freelancing to get going

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    Hi, I have been on the forum for a couple of months now and tried to take action, but I am sort of paralysed, because I don`t really know, what to do, and I am afraid to lose money. So right now I am thinking of starting in the freelance world as a copywriter. That would have three benefits...

    Foundations, the trigger, reaching olympus

    EXECUTION 
    Everyone wants to claim freedom, everyone wants to claim financial security and freedom from the script. Some have done this; but most of them gloss over what they started with, what they came from, and some of the worst battles. Popular biographies and blog posts tend to be some of the worst...

    Meet Siddhartha

    SOCIAL MEDIA INTRO 
    Howdy, Texan, early 20-something who's been focusing on re-gaining control of his life for about a year now. Post-college employment pushed me back to book reading. Ran across TMF in the sea of entrepreneur books this last week, was thrilled to find out it was one of the most common sense...

    How do I Start?

    Hello everyone, I am currently in my second year of college, and I'm here studying Information Science and Technology. It has always been a dream of mine since early high school to start my own business (which is why I am taking the business classes I am), but as I am taking these classes I have...

    Hello everyone! 18 y/old ready for takeoff

    INTRO 
    Greetings to everyone here! I'm a guy who recently turned 18 and devoured both of MJ's books. The Mindset part was a really life changing experience in terms of what I want and what I'd like to do in my life. I always liked leading and helping people, I also enjoy looking for solutions because...

    How to start your fastlane journey if you are disconnected to the idea of it?

    IDEA MINDSET 
    Hey guys, great to be here, I will keep this concise. I was introduced to personal development just over 5 years ago. I found MJ's (TMF) book and it is hands down the best I have ever read. I am at a point now where my desire to become rich is still strong, but my desire to execute and do...

    Made $10,000 But Just Starting Out (My Humble Beginnings)

    INTRO 
    Dear Fastlaners, NB: I know you are busy and giving ~8 minutes to read someone's story may seem much. If so, skip down to Present Life if you are curious what I am working on right now. It's strange how life can turn out when you take action... A few months ago, I wrote an introductory post...

    Hello

    INTRO 
    Hello there, I just read the millionaire fastlane and it's exactly what I've been looking for. I'm still in college and working part time as a waitress and I CANNOT imagine working five days to have two free days every week for the rest of my life. Still searching for an opportunity to get...

    Running Away From Alibaba and Amazon

    RANT 
    If you have read Unscripted, you'll understand why sourcing from Alibaba and then selling on Amazon is such a slow-lane idea. On page 249, MJ talks about how this idea violated the commandment of entry. I tried doing the same (sourcing from Alibaba and selling on Amazon) but stopped halfway. I...

    DONE Is Better Than Perfect (The '7 Out of 10' Rule)

    MINDSET 
    Alright, let me ask you a question. How many times have you beaten yourself up because you think your effort wasn't good enough? Many times? Well you're not alone. I did a talk about this in front of a business class I was invited to speak before and I can assure you sooo many people suffer...

    66 Days to Success

    MINDSET 
    About a week ago I was stuck in a car for 12 hours, and ended up reading Elon Musk's biography. I was really struck by his work habits when he was building his first business, Zip2. Apparently he would sleep next to his desk, and work from the time he woke up until the time he went to bed. Now...

    Greetings from a young man trying to turn things around

    INTRO 
    Hi everyone, I just registered on the forum yesterday, found it and lurked for a few days before that. I've read the TMF book (free chapters and then summaries/quotes from the others), and have benefited greatly from other sites (Danger and Play, Bold and Determined -Victor Pride referenced...
