    Hi @switching_lanes
    great to have you on board! Welcome!
    Seems like your thread is a magnet for Austrians!

    --> Me too :-D

    @Awaken , @Nepinho , @PippoW glad to know my husband and I aren't the only Austrian Fastlaners here :)
    thumbs up, keep us updated!
    Maybe we can all meet up at some stage and share/encourage/help each other on our journeys.
    By the way, what a coincidence. We are Engineers too (Chemical/Process and Metal Forming Engineers).

    All the best and keep up the high spirits!

    Hey, good luck on your goals! You have a background that requires great work ethic, so i'm sure you can do great.
    I'm also just starting out thinking about how to do things, doing market research etc. at the moment.

    My fioncee and me saved up a bit as well, are debt free and we want to start a family next year. We are both engineers and would like to start something on our own. But we do not know what. Actually, one idea is producing skin creme :) not that I am interest in this ... but that puts me on a nice situation just focusing on value and best practice ... but it is just an idea.

    Didn't manage to write my intro post yet but also in a very similar situation, although we already built a house and most of my savings went there. Nothing really special, no dream house at all but seemed like a good investment in that time and location. I'm from Belgium (flanders) where every square inch is being built :) So quite confident we can still sell it without losing money on it if we ever find our dream house (and after the fastlane of course).

    35 y.o. so have the feeling now is really the time also, especially because we're trying to get pregnant also and as my wife is currently working as a contract agent for the European Commission but her contract ends in 1,5 years.
    So, "exciting" times ahead... but of course, it's never the right time.

    Good luck with your journey also and I hope we can all build something to be proud of.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Sounds like you have a lot of good things going for you (debt-free, good mindset, good work ethic). You're off to a great start.

    In the beginning, your one goal should be to help others. In Unscripted, MJ talks about not even mentioning the word money. Think of money as Value-Vouchers.

    How much value are you worth? How much value do you give others?

    It's a simple concept that so many entrepreneurs overlook. Help others, and money will surely follow.


    Good luck!

    Oh, I am a physicist/electrical engineer combination. My fioncee is a chemical process engineer. And very picky about here cremes, so I said to her one time, we should make our own if she dislike every other ^_^ .

    What is your skill set and interest scope? As a civil engineer, did you do simulations or design?

    I have a very similar situation with you. I have a 9-6 job and doing IT. Currently Married without kids.

    What is your plan ?

    Are you able to do consulting ? Probably it's a good start before you left your job.

    With her background you should really go for it or at least look into the topic of cremes.

    I did a little design but worked mostly in research. Not too much I could use for my fastlane process right now.

    Interesting. Great to know that many members are in a similar situation. I think IT is a great starting point. What exactly do you do?
    I don't have much of a plan right now but I'm searching.
    Consulting might be a good idea. Will look into it if there is a possibility for me to do it as a freelancer.
