Hey guys. I only recently discovered the Millionaire Fast Lane via a recommendation on Amazon. I resonated strongly with the criticism of the standard Financial Independence material I used to be really into – mainly because I wasn't aware of any better advice.

For years I was all about frugality, saving as much of my paycheck as possible in the hope of reaching that crossover point where an ETF fund would cover my living expenses. But right from the start, I knew that the income from my day job was never going to get me there. The numbers didn't add up.

I would have to hustle in my spare time to have a chance at reaching financial independence.

I tried being an Ebay trader after making a decent amount of money as a private seller. That failed.

Then I studied copywriting and tried setting myself up on Fiverr, only to find that market saturated.

Discovering the Millionaire Fast Lane and reading it for the first time not only articulated my problems with the FI material, but gave me better ideas for how to go about setting up a business that might actually work – instead of floundering about with side hustles.

After reading the book once, I reread it during my breaks at work, taking notes and creating my own CliffsNotes version I could refer back to, along with any ideas I had. My ideas are still vague, but I intend to change that.

Looking forward to reading more and hopefully contributing.

I did similar. My copy is full of highlighted points, and I intend to reread it also. I also refer back to different parts, as I am starting to execute my own "escape".

Yeah, I found that taking personalized notes helped me to internalize the ideas in the book and helped me make mental connections that could lead to a decent business idea. Good luck with your escape!
