Wow, times flies by.

A little over a year ago i was bored at work and started researching how do people afford these high end super cars.I had just finished my bachelor's, and first year in corporate IT. I only knew of going to school and working your way through corporate or making the next big app/site like facebook. I looked at Forbes and started to see the word entrepreneur everywhere. Then somehow i landed on the forums and bought the book.
I took a few months learning and playing around with some things where i lost some money here and there and had a few roadblocks. Then met with a group of likeminded people on the forum in February. Ever since then it has been pedal to the floor. We talk almost every day and bounce ideas and helpful tips around. Even try to meetup every few weeks(been kinda hard for me to attend, i do when i can) I still work my IT Corporate job, and a side job on the weekend(fri,sat,sun) and i'm almost done with Grad school.

Lifes great, i no longer stress about how things will get paid, or can i do this or that..and Ive been on over 8 vacations ..this year...

Between the fast and slow lane i already cleared 6 figures this year and still have a few months to go...the information is everywhere ,you just have to apply it to what you know. If you don't know anything just pick something and go with it...and learn as you go...im a rebel so i actually went with something everyone said dont do and it has paid off pretty good...also why im still in school, and still working ...when everyone is like quit the slowlane ....dont go to school....blahh blah blahh

Thanks to @MJ DeMarco and everyone on the forum for opening my mind to see a different side of life instead of the normal work until your 60 and hope to retire life. I learned more this year at 25 than i did in any semester of school.

Now i'm starting to think of my next project with the help of a couple people on the forum and will be launching a new progress thread soon, now that i have more seed money to start with.

a lot can change in a year...start today!

congrats

is it possible to have a list of the users who made the same thing ? or a sub forum or anything to gather the success stories like this one ?

you get the point because this is so amazing to succeed in ONE year that we should study these guys

i know , this is forbidden for users to show their wealth like you said MJ Demarco,

because anyone can rent a Ferrari and said that they succeed so it does not make sense.

but here we are talking about real provable success stories of the forum that you approve.

Agree that reading about real success stories is hugely important.

I would fast be coming up to my year anniversary, and whilst I can't call it a success story in the broad sense (I'm still scaling down my day to day work, and am not a millionaire - yet) The fastlane has been successful to me in transforming my outlook, and starting me along a path that is getting me there. Making the first dollars off my own back has come directly from reading TMF and to me that has been huge.

Congrats OP

Progress threads inside of the INSIDERS are alot like that ,but they move it to the INSIDERS so not everyone can see...

I wouldn't say i succeeded, but i did say im doing pretty good...and living a better life than before i came here..lol

Brother, I can smell the limiting belief in this post......kill it.

Pull it out, step on it, pour a bit of gasoline on it and set it on fire.
