New to fastlane forum... in the process of learning how I can create a fastlane company to create massive value for millions of people. I often think about how much a person could earn if the only collected a penny or two from every person in the world. (Commandment of Scale) with some kind of value to each person. Any and all comments are welcome. Thanks in advance!

All types of fastlane businesses are in The Millionaire Fastlane, CHAPTER 35 -- Rapid Wealth: The Interstates.

Also, I would recommend reading Third Circle Theory by Secret Entourage because it makes you question your approach: Are you thinking only about money making or providing a value? (Also mentioned in TMF: "When you solve needs on a massive scale, money flows into your life. Money reflects value.")

Interesting to see someone recommend that book. When that dude first started popping up it seemed very fishy, but after talking to a friend who is on there and another local majorly successful entrepreneur they both said it was cool. Seems pretty helpful if you need the motivation, nice to hear the book is good too.

It's about making a shift between mindsets, going from a victim, to moneymaker (entrepreneur) and finally a stage only few achieve - a visionary and how your life is impacted by your entourage, environment and things you can't control until you start developing self-awareness. Definitely a great read and short too. 120 pages approx.

I re-listened to Chapter 45 Rapid Wealth: The Interstates

1) Internet; subscription based, content based, lead generation, social networks, brokerage systems (pay pal), advertising, e-commerce
2) Innovation; manufacture and distribute
3) Intentional Iteration; franchising, scaling

Now you can google all of them to get a deeper understanding what they are, how they are done and then read some of the threads here, go to Smart Passive Income, listen to some podcasts and you will get a much clearer picture.

If you are like me, how people actually do it and how you thought it was done will be two completely different things and it will probably take some time to process it. I always thought you needed an enormous budget to start something, because all the information given to us, without the deeper research, is usually the event, but never the process. So since everyone seemed like an overnight success (presented that way by the media), I thought they worked their asses of at some 9-5 job because they had jobs that would help them gain the capital. Then MJ blew my mind. After him Pat Flynn, Dane Maxwell, Allen Wong, Chad Mureta, Pejman Ghadimi and countless other guys.

It is possible, you just need to be honest and ask yourself: "Am I ready to make sacrifices for the next few years and study and learn, and then try and do while others live their life in front of me?"

Or were you looking for an idea you could replicate and turn $500 into $10,000,000 in the next five minutes?

Would you recommend joining the secret entourage. Is their content any good?

I can't tell since I didn't join. I read the book and I can't say it is excellent. I also saw some full interviews with different kinds of entrepreneurs, but that kind of stuff you can find on different podcasts or even YouTube. And honestly. no matter how much different videos you see and how much stories you read, your journey will always be completely different and most of the stuff you'll need to learn on your own.

On the other hand, there might be some very useful stuff I don't know about since I didn't join. Try to find somebody who knows more than I do and good luck!

Open your eyes. They are everywhere around you. Once you are in tune, you cannot miss them...
^^^ this. Something I need to start doing more often is opening my eyes! Literally just about everything around you has likely made someone a lot of money and also helped a lot of people. Once you figure out how you can make it better, you're in.

Phenomenal content. I've purchased their academy, and the content that I've pulled from there, has been incredible. PJ runs specials on the academy price from time to time, so give him an add on IG or FB and look out for that. It's what you pull from it. Simplest way to explain it. There's a literal F*ck ton of information over there, it's always updating, they do interviews with A and B list entrepreneurs all the time, and provide their students with the information they need. The facebook group is pretty damn good too. I enjoy it. I spent $120 on it, and I haven't regretted that decision yet.

Also a member - I like their interviews but nothing spectacular tbh and don't think it can really warrant the pay wall, but hey it's a one time fee

SE is a fantastic resource. It's exactly as your describe - it's what you pull from it. I joined in Oct '14, can't remember how much I paid but it was less than $100. I NEED to read TCT once I finish my immediate FL Biz projects in the coming months. Even though I have the FL mindset, another perspective and more info is always good.

I've learned a ton from the interviews I've watched & the Secrets to Success articles (MJ has an article there), Steve Gallion, Andy Frisella, Rob Dahm, & a couple of my favorite stories: Nick Ruiz & Peter Beattie's story are great just to name a few of over 150. Even it if was $10,000 for a subscription it'd be worth it just from what I've learned once you adopt the right mindset.

It seems the interview articles you've mentioned are free to read.

It would be a good idea to first recognize and understand the value you are exposed to 24/7, and see what you can create or improve upon to fill a need that you would be interested in. Find something people need a solution for, or just a better solution that you can provide, and go for it. There's your business.
