Hello,

Early 20s male here, born and raised in a suburban bubble outside Atlanta. Family escaped Iran in the 80s for a better life. They both hustled hard, dad tried and failed at pizza businesses, but we lived a happy life till I was 10. Dad fell into pit of depression, alcohol took him over and a year of hell later I pushed mom to kick him out. She did. He’s been out of our lives for over a decade now.

I only mention this because the pain of that experience is now one of my greatest motivators. It showed me at a very young age what losing control looks like. Maintaining control of my life is now a fundamental block I make my decisions from.

Always been a black sheep of sorts, and wanted to walk my own path. After high school, I found my way into being a professional manny (male nanny), and later went to massage school. As of recently, I’m fully employed now in both fields, and starting research for my first fastlane pursuit.

I’v seen what the fastlane mindset has done for my childhood friend and his new business, and I’m committed to absorbing and implementing what I learn.

Hope to connect with many of you both online and in person over these coming years. Lastly, nothing but gratitude to you MJ, for what you’ve started here.

Thanks
