Hi everyone. I read TMF and I'm on my way to completing Unscripted. TMF truly connected with me and my thoughts of working 5 for 2 and barely getting by (which I realized at age 17 when I started working). I read TMF twice so far and I am eager to start my fastlane journey.

I am now 24 years old and go to college for Electrical Engineering Technology, and I'm 9 courses shy of graduating and work for an Electric Utility Company as an engineer aide. I want to eventually start my own business (most likely software). Right now I'm learning to code and want to learn how to build mobile applications and software to create multiplatform applications.

I look forward to interacting with you fellow aspiring, and established fastlaners :D

You know, it seems you have invested a lot of time to learn Electrical Engineering Technology. Maybe you can use the expertise you already have to make something Fastlane out of that. Perhaps you will have a huge advantage if you can combine entrepreneur mindset and Electrical Engineering experiments together. If your school teaches only dry theory and it is impossible to make something practical out of it, it might be much harder though.

@Napoolion I'm with you on that. I have been considering that heavily. I had a couple ideas from my job so far. One involved special manufacturing and engineering that would be needed to create a the product, plus capital needed to develop a prototype. On top of that, the utility industry is slow to integrate new technology, so I was deterred. On the other hand, that was a good exercise to get me how to think like an entrepreneur and do some research in the utility industry.

My school is very technical/practical so there are some opportunities to innovate or work on projects. I'm not sure if your familiar with the "Internet of Things" (its basically equipping various devices with sensors, and controlling/monitoring it with a phone, tablet, or computer), but I'm talking to one of my professors about doing paid research and working on a project that implements building software applications, and interfacing it with a "smart" (sensor equipped) electric meter.

I would highly recommend trying to stay out of the business world at the employee capacity altogether if at all possible. That whole indoctrination and lifestyle will only serve to make starting your own company more difficult. Bust a$$ on developing something whilst is school that makes you enough money to live off of where you don't need to rely on someone else to pay your bills. Save yourself the time and do it NOW!!
