My names Ryan, I‘m from Melbourne Aus.

My story begins in 2019 when I came across online business after the typical ‘make money online‘ search. I looked into the typical Amazon FBA, Affiliate Marketing and Drop-shipping. I‘ve made countless stores that were complete rubbish, following Gurus advice and focusing on making money not creating a great product.

I then invested in courses and didn’t really take much action, I was action-faking and was spending way to much time planning and no time taking action. I then found a book efficiency but Wall Street playboys and this really opened my eyes, I then found MJ’s books and really designed my ideal life. After reflecting on the last few years I’ve made little progress, I’ve had a few freelancing gigs but I’ve not really put enough effort it.

As of recently I’ve picked up some bad habits such as gambling and drinking more than usual.
looking back now it was so stupid, just wasting money trying to catch a break.

I then read MJs books which really showed me that I was in the ‘slow lane‘ and I wanted to change.

I browsed the forumns and decided I wasn’t sure where to start so I thought ‘sales’.

Next morning I applied to 10 or so sales gigs, after a few nervous interviews I got a decent one working from home (I’ll be able to work on side businesses hopefully).

Hoping to gain a bit of structure in my life and learn some valuable skills. In my free time I’m looking to start a e-commerce business but for now I’m just reading this forums and getting some great insights.

I‘m well aware I’m in the slow lane, but I’m not going to stay here.

Welcome. Sounds like you have already learned some skill (FBA, Affiliate Marketing, dropshipping). So you are on your way. Time to turn a new leaf!
