    Thanks for bumping this Andy. I already managed to sift through a lot of this, but that list of must follow contributors definitely helped. I agree with everyone earlier, this should be a must read upon signing up!

    While he's new to the forum @Chris Kelsey shoild definitely be added for his great knowledge on app developing.

    Rep transfer! I need this. This forum is sooooo big. Takes me some time to get around. Seriously this thread needs to be on the front! Even if this is a gold, I should have gotten to it earlier.

    Very informative thread and a great breakdown of the culture of forum.

    Wiser people than myself have already mentioned this but this thread should be mandatory reading to anyone who joins the forum.

    I would also second the motion to block new users from posting for the first 30 days, this would force people to read a few threads before posting and hopefully avoid asking questions which have already been answered in great detail.

    This would be beneficial to veterans, who won't get frustrated at having to answer the same questions and to new users who will avoid asking such questions by reading a few threads on their subject of enquiry.

    This is legit, it answered a lot of my questions I have about the forum. Feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the content on here, I have no idea where to start, this gives me a really good idea, thank you.

    Hey the Fastlane Bookstore link seems to not go past page 1 :( Could just be the browser I am on, but worth looking into.

    1. Andy Black asked me to read this link and respond with my takeaways before talking further.....then to post this reply I sent him on here...

      These were my thoughts as I read this....
      Andy.....
      My takeaway is that the slowlane for me is a little different.....
      I have been one of the best wherever worked, at whatever done....I thought I had a lot because I had more than others around me....but growing up I did not have the perception of making a lot of money unless a doctor or lawyer....I literally told myself when thinking of the future....I don't know what I'll do but I'm good at everything I do once learn it.....so something will fall out of the sky....I ACTUALLY RELIED ON THAT! we didn't have Internet when I was young showing us how everything is possible....and I was above others around me.......so time went on and nothing has ever fallen out of the sky as figured.....

      I bought and sold things ever since young....everything can think of.....people would come to me and I would flip things daily....put a post it note on that 20 or 100 bucks of how I made it.....and some of those rubber bands of money I still have in envelopes to this very day from 15 years ago....rubber bands are so old they're fracked and broke stuck to the money.....I saved money and determined how I'll spend it by what it took for me to get it by that note I wrote. I sold things I shouldn't of and......if can understand somehow.....when you have a "money tree" like that you think you're getting ahead but all it did was make me not pursue real business success such as what all of you have.

      I have no debt,perfect credit, few college credits and I invested years and years into personal training and trying to be the BEST there is thinking it would make me money. I hated the sales part of it because I didn't want to be the fake people around me....horrible at what they do and ripping people off. I WANTED PEOPLE TO COME TO ME......I believed so much if I just sat on Internet everyday mastering the body....I'd become great. Even now my business is almost a hobby because I give each person almost 2 hours sometimes because "I want it done right"......my own client tells me I charge not enough.....Lost my future wife because of my way of thinking....and even worse I held her back in life making her wait for me to finally be successful....so much regret for this I could type and type.

      I got a side job driving a bus for 4 hrs a day just to be productive somehow between appointments.....it makes me feel terrible trading my life doing that.....I have a stepfather that says good job, its money......I see nothing but an hourglass emptying every second....always been worried time passing to fast since young.

      I believed DEEPLY each person needs to spend life working doing what they love or they're wasting life....I preached this to my girl for years and would have my kid if had any back then.....she always disagreed.....she was right about everything......I was wrong my whole life.......I have the emotions currently to give all of what I have left just to be wealthy enough to make her life so she doesn't have to suffer working.....it's all I care......it's all that stops me from sitting,thinking with tears....

      What's time worth?
      My time is everything to me just as she was.....but my actions don't reflect what's inside me.

      I contacted a mentor but.....I don't feel he understands....worried if I listen and follow advice I could waste more time.....

      I refuse to waste anymore time

      Sorry if got off track Andy

    Wow @Andy Black , Thanks for pointing me to all these good threads today. I'm discovering that you're like the matchmaker in Malcolm Gladwell's Tipping Point book. You're a hub pointing the way to all the good sh*t. Thanks Man! +Rep

    I find this thread very useful and it is the absolute beginners guide.

    In my opinion though, the first thing that I would like to see - as a noob - aside from what the guide gives (where to find who/what).

    'How to use this forum' in one paragraph:

    Please feel free to look for an area of your interest, may it be 'healthy lifestyle' or anything even vaguely related to the Fastlane concept. And start contributing. This is the fastest way to creating value for other people and testing your concepts too.

    This is, in my not so even close to being humble opinion, the closest you can get to the 'fastlane philosophy' in a second. With respect to the creator of the thread and people creating the value here.

    Thanks @jockinbox

    Excellent, lots of information and very accurate for the new ones. Its going to avoid wasting time going around and maybe free up the mentor's to concentrate on more advanced questions.
