Hello to all the fastlaners and all the aspiring entrepreneurs.

I'm a 24 years old single man from Santa Cruz, Bolivia and currently living with my parents. I have a degree in Financial Engineering and work as a corporate credit risk analyst for a major bank in my country. I've always wanted to be an entrepreneur since I was very young but my parents tried to raise me with a risk averse mentality, the typical "go to school, get good grades, get a job, etc". It's funny because the majority of my relatives (siblings of both of my parents) are successful entrepreneurs, very rich people while my nuclear family is at most, middle class.

I have to admit I fell into the slowlane trap for a couple of years and I was slowly turning into a sidewalker. I began to spend my little money on booze, parties and expensive stuff like watches and other accessories. In fact, last month I was on the verge of getting into debt to buy a car which would have taken me at least five 5 years to pay off. Thank god my brother opened my eyes and stopped me, he introduced me to TMF and my desire to be an entrepreneur has come back.

To sum it up, I'm finally taking action. I can't wait any longer (my mentality used to be "once I turn 30 and have more capital, I'll start a business"). I want to start an e-commerce business. I've already contacted suppliers (I've carefully studied them, thank you Walter Hay and Biophase) and asked for samples (hopefully I'll have them in two weeks). I won't be selling on Amazon for obvious reasons. I'll sell my products through a facebook page and probably Instagram. I won't go into details now as I'll start a progress thread in the future.

I'm looking forward to learning from all of you, but especially, from my own experiences!
