Hi fastlaners!

I'm a 19year old kid from a not so advanced country of Serbia seeking your guidance and help.
I've decided to pursue the unscripted way and don't go to an university.
I've read quite a few treads about hustling, sales, but unfortunately I'm able to do it on a much smaller scale and if i try to follow the 9-5 scripted way so that i could save enough money to start a business it will take me a lot of time since the average pay in Serbia is 300-400 euros.

I have experience in web development an some experience in digital marketing since i did dropshipping for some time but that wasn't so successful and i decided to pause it,i didn't t have the money to fund the ads.
When it comes to doing online business in my country it's quite difficult because the digital era isn't so advanced here,but on the other hand that isn't so bad since the market isn't saturated. What do you recommend? Improving my web developemnt knowledge, digital marketing skills and create an online value offering business or should i hustle, save money and try to create an offline business?

You've got one big advantage coming from a not so advanced country: you're country has a much higher chance of rising. Half of those other west European countries on that map are F*cked.

Work out what marketable skill is in highest demand and least supply in your country and get good at that. Then get into property investment. In the future people are going to be running way from the west and you'll be one of the countries they flee to.

Welcome to the forum @Andrej453.

I wish all 19 year olds were as ambitious as you.

Please don't let the average salary and lack of money stop you from pursuing the fastlane.

Think about this - what if you had no money. And yet, you had to start a business. How would you do it?

How are your Java Skills? And are you aware of BlockChain?

Yea, i'm trying to figure out the need in my country that doesn't require a large capital to start.

Don't touch blockchain. If you've got the brain for it, and you particularly want to do something tech related, do machine learning.
