For the last 5-6 years I've been following the slow lane plan: Climb the ladder, get a job with a good salary, live frugally, save half your income and invest it in real estate and index funds. I'm 32 and by my calculations I could have achieved 1 million in assets by the time I'm 38... IF house prices kept going up, and IF the stock market didn't crash... All the while working in an office I hate, with people I don't choose to be around, for 40+ hours per week for the next 6 years. To me it's a prison sentence. Sure it's a little bit shorter than most people are looking at, but it's still 6 of the best years of my life, working to make someone else rich. Reading the Millionaire Fastlane was like a breath of fresh air for me: I've always looked down on the pavement dwellers, thinking I'm so smart. I've seen the Fastlane folk but always thought that it's for the lucky, not for me.

Now I can see that it's possible, and I can't unsee that. Now I have to try it. I have taken 12 months off from my job (which I hope not to return to) and am dedicating the time to creating a business that sustains me even when I'm not working.

Welcome my friend.

Now I have to try it.

This isn't something you try. You can't try to be a successful baseball player by taking a few swings at the plate.

There is no difference. You live it, or you just try.

Good point. I think Yoda had something to say about that ;-)
