I need to just unload all of this mental data! I have not been active enough, I take full responsibility and will now commit 10 minutes per evening a day to checking this site!
I previously posted about feeling caged and not being surrounded by the right people, I got the answer of basically buy your way into these circles by attending the most expensive gym etc......so I did I joined and guess what, its as simple as that. Not only now do I see people who are ahead of me, I use the gym daily. I cannot stress enough how simple it is......go to the gym! I even bought wireless headphones so I can listen to audio books in the spa!

Anyway my dilemma, I run an events business. I work 1 - 3 days a week with minor admin everyday and the odd phone call. I am free to do whatever I please from Monday - Friday and to give you an idea this week -Friday - evening disco & dancefloor ( 7 hours ) - -Saturday - Disco ( 5 hours )- -Sunday - Party ( 3 hours ). This will give me an earning of £1,300, which some people will take a month to earn.

So currently I have one rule of the Fastlane, freedom! during the week and a comfortable but not impressive income. I have a 4 year old son who I see at the weekends, however in the evening I steer the wheel that means I go off to work and trade my time for money :-(

I am desperate to invest my full energy into something yet I do not want to grow the events business as there is only so much demand and booking DJ's and sub contracting others nets me a very small percentage. I know I have created myself a well paid job that enables me freedom but to scale up will cause me to work more hours.

There is no simple answer and I want brutal answers. I am steering this wheel, its entirely me. I just need a new goal post so I can put all my energy towards the new Fastlane business and stop trading my time for money! By posting this here I feel it holds me responsible to make these changes.

Have a good day

While know you're not close to being Fastlane, congrats on profiting from events. I'm in the same game but with cannabis and music and it's not an easy task to profit from events especially coming off Covid. You're way ahead of me on metrics and looking forward to hearing more about your progress.

If only I could sell cannabis in England, that would be a sure fire way to the fast lane haha
