Brother, this fills my heart with happiness. Great job!

And remember, you were happy without the car, and because of that, you can be happy now that you have it. And, the best news is, you still will be happy when you don’t have it anymore.

Cheers!

I would have put a few thousand miles on it. Cannonball run!

Congrats!

wow! that's an amazing car, It feels like not long ago you got the orange gallardo...
I bet the journey must've been just as fun as the purchase of the car. It's encouraging seeing stories like yours play out on this forum, It feels like we're all going on our own crazy road trip through the fast-lane. Can't wait to see what's next :D

Can you go into detail about the second phase of your life? What are you investing your money in? I'd rather hear about how you maintain your wealth rather than the toys you buy. I'm more interested in Freedom than people's gadgets.

How many hours are you working now? Are you hiring more people to do the work for you? Are you going to exit?

Not sure if I should have made this a second new thread or not (to create more buzz + energy)... but now:

29 Years Old: Bought my Second Lamborghini (and my True Dream Car)
I AM ON CLOUD 9 with this car. My dream car since I was 12. I'm now 29. Can't believe this is real life. Wow wow wow.

Alex, I just saw this other white murci today. Now I don't know much about it except the guy said it had a special fast wing on it and was worth over a $1M. I figured you'd probably know what rare version it was.

Anyway, yours looks awesome man!

:thumbsup::praise::clap::

But I thought that Fastlane shit was a scam!?

Congrats man, I owned that car for a good 4 years, was pretty damn reliable! You will love it!

So so excited for you.

You did it, you worked the math, worked the need, and worked the value. Boom!

Thank you my friend! Dinner on me in the Murci when I'm in Scottsdale next. You drive us to dinner =). I'm sure you've been missing that sweet V12 serenade! :playful:

So glad you've been able to witness the run-up from the craigslist snow shoveling days - to now :smile:

Brother, this fills my heart with happiness. Great job!

And remember, you were happy without the car, and because of that, you can be happy now that you have it. And, the best news is, you still will be happy when you don’t have it anymore.

Cheers!
Thank you my brother! Can't wait till you and the lady visit Chicago and we go for a ride :smile:

And you are totally right. The more success you have, the more you realize the fun stuff can make you happy... but it won't fulfill you.

Alex, I just saw this other white murci today. Now I don't know much about it except the guy said it had a special fast wing on it and was worth over a $1M. I figured you'd probably know what rare version it was.

Anyway, yours looks awesome man!

Thank you, Kenric! Man, it sounds like you saw an LP670-SV Murcielago. And a 6-speed manual one at that! 1 of 3 in the country. 2 are white. 1 has been crashed. Only 6 in the world (manual). VERY rare. Definitely worth $1M. That is the next Murci for me :cool:

It was a 6 speed manual. It had a super low wing on the back and was white with black top.

4.30am just took a break from some client work that is due this morning. Serious inspiration right here! Been following your journey for about two or so years here on the forum and moved into a house hack situation back in September as you recommended in one of your threads. We've never really spoken before but just know that I am indebted to you :) Great to see that you are still winning!

Congrats man!

My dream car is owning no car now. No more servicing, tires, oil check, tax. EVER.

I'm happy with Grab (Singapore's Uber): it's clean, efficient and pretty cheap.

For all other times, I take the metro or bus and life has never been easier.

9 and 1/2 years ago, when I was just 18 years old, I hit the "join" button on a forum that would forever change my life. I was already an entrepreneur at heart - and had tried a few things - but I had now found a like-minded group to share ideas and thoughts with. This catalyst was the equivalent of adding rocket fuel to my entrepreneurial gas tank. While I had to put in thousands (and thousands) of hours of work + critical thinking and trial and error - there is no doubt in my mind that this journey was sped up by a few years thanks to @MJ DeMarco (and others thanked in numerous other threads of mine).

What will 9 years get you on this forum? A gated 6-speed Lamborghini Gallardo (if that floats your boat). More importantly it will get you a new line of thinking (UNSCRIPTED ), an appreciation of your most valuable asset (TIME), and the ability to appreciate FAILURE.

I'm nervous even posting about this, because it feels a bit unreal to me. Truly, I keep telling my friends who know about it that it "doesn't feel real" or "doesn't feel like it's mine yet". But this past Saturday I bought her and drove her 700 miles home (with my girlfriend of 11 years, who has been here this whole journey) back to Chicago. Had about 300 pictures taken by strangers along the way haha.

40141410661_658a1e7cc7_b.jpg


If you asked 18 year old me what my goals were, I would have said "7,000SF house, multiple Lamborghinis, Own a Sports Team, etc.)... but as I have conquered larger obstacles and "grown up" a bit... my goals shifted. I still plan on owning multiple Lambos (I love everything about them, the artwork of the design, the engineering and power, the sound, the drama, etc.)... but getting this car was an important reminder to me that success is not a destination. It is a way of life (for me, having my TIME to myself).

If success were a destination, then that destination would forever elude you (i.e. you get to $10M in networth, you want $50M next...etc. etc.)... In that scenario you are never truly happy. I think coming to know that the ride is what is important is such an overused but MEGA important reminder. Owning this car is a reminder that I need to enjoy the ride and not hoard every available line of credit/dollar for business deals only. And, at the end of the day I got this particular Lambo because I believe I can drive it for 1-2 years and not lose money on it (barring any acts of God) - which is exactly what I did with my 911 Turbo (sold for $1,000 more than I paid for it originally, after 8,000 miles of enjoyment).

My favorite things on this journey (aside from the new friends I have made along the way) has been tackling challenges I set for myself, helping my employees grow (who are now like my family), and becoming a better human being through personal development. Make it your mission to serve others (employees, customers, etc.) and your success will be a bi-product. That is my new goal in life. I'm sure it will lead to more Lambos :cool:

Cheers to the first (of hopefully many)!

Get started today guys. Have no fear. Just take calculated chances.
Alex
awesome - thanks for sharing - ;)

That's one fancy car! Congratulations man, your journey is inspiring. Now you reap the benefits of years of PROCESS. I bet to some people you are an overnight success (or a drug dealer, hence the trip to Mexico ;)).

Thanks for sharing, and please continue to do so.

Alex did you lose any money on the first Lambo? At the start of the thread you said you might break even when selling.

What were the running/ownership costs for the year?

Since I'm on the INSIDERS call right now, I just saw this unanswered question!

I did not lose any money =)

Purchased the Gallardo for $101,000​
Installed Titanium Intakes + Exhaust ($3,500)​
Installed new tires ($1,200)​
Oil Change ($375)​
Total Cost: $106,075

Drove for 5,000 miles. Sold for $106,500. Free car :cool:

The new owner held it for a year and just sold for $107,500 after putting 1,700 miles on it.

And thanks everyone else for the kind words!

this is insane you must love your country, you pay taxes just for owning a lambo in italy about 6k per year + insurance etc... so here it would never be "profitable".
Here to own a supercar for say 4 years you're basically blowing 20k just on taxes.

hey man truly inspired after reading this (honestly teared up a little), I too join the forum at 17 years old (just turned 18 today) when it was recommended to me. I have always had dreams to be an entrepreneur since I was a little kid and It all started when I opened my first drop shipping store at 16. I think just like you and agree with everything you say. I too am a lover of cars I have been all my life and wish too own cars like that too but like you said the most important thing is "having time to myself" and the journey not the destination and its something I believe is worth more than anything money can buy. I hope to be like you someday and be able to come back and write about it, this gave me a lot more motivation to start and work on my next venture.
Thank you, Vasili

Wow congratulations brother! I am so glad I just joined this amazing forum, definitely a motivating story. The more I spend time on here, makes me realise even more how the life (yes including a Lambo ) is not so far off after all.
