Hi everyone,
here are some quick facts about me:
-31 years, male
-Working since ~3years as a mechatronics engineer at one of the worlds biggest Carmakers
-Coming from a pretty wealthy family (great childhood, great family, great vacations, money was never a problem)
-Living in Germany
-Constantly learning and trying to improve myself

I really had a wonderful life so far. I love my family, I have great parents, great siblings a great girlfriend, I am very healthy, sporty and have great friends.
BUT I was lazy!! Even that everyone of my family, friends or colleagues tell me that I need to relax a bit and not constantly learn in my free time, I recognized that I had relaxing 31 years actually... I am sad that I didn't recognize it earlier but I'm happy that I did now. I made my school, I made my apprentice ships, I again made my school and my bachelors degree and I never had any monetary problems and therefore I never thought about "Hmm, maybe I should work or build an own business".
I love to code and I think I'm pretty good at it. I had some "great" ideas of apps/IoT devices but it actually took me a huge time and effort and at the end I recognized that it actually isn't thaaaat good. But I try to learn and don't make these mistakes again.
I am currently reading the millionaire fastlane and I feel it 100%. I know where I want to be (financially free, which would be for me a monthly income of ~3000€ currently). In that case I could just programm and launch one after another app/website. I'm doing very well with my money mamagement. I'm earning way more than I need and I really do not earn thaaaat much :D. I just don't need always new closes/TVs/...
So I do buy myself a new Laptop for coding or a new 3D printer but I do ride my bike from ~12 year ago (It works fine and does look good :D).

I have made 2 apprenticeships and then studied mechatronics engineering.
I ended university ~3 years ago and in these 3 years I noticed so damn hard, that I'll never achieve my "financal free dream" in the corporate life. Also I noticed how silly many of those processes in big companies are and that I do not want to be part of being dependet of someone else.
Therefore I'm learning as much as I can and always keep my eyes open for ideas where I can create something wonderful for peoples. I do know that I'll achieve my goal 100% because I'm not dumb (I'm not a genius either^^). And I just need to learn HOW TO START.
My friends are absolutely great but in this case we do not share the same goals. 99% of my friends are sticking to their job probably forever (retirement doesn't look good in Germany :D).
Therefore I hope to connect with others with the same goald here and hear from your great stories so that we can all learn from each other. I'll share my story definitely to you also when I did it :))).
Feel free to ask me anything and great if any of you was sticking to the end of this looooong introduction :D
Best to all of you!!

Thank you!
You're absolutely right. I am so thankful for this and try evenion bad days always to keep happy because I know how valuable this is.
It's really great that you're already in a forum like this, trying to learn in the young age as a student! I think there are so many great opportunities out there and the longer we work on it, the more we'll succeed.
