Amazing content on this forum.... it seems to be attracting more at an exponential rate. The gold/notable threads are already improving my mindset. I ask myself if there a scaling plan at work with this forum for an even larger impact on the horizon. Many thanks to MJ and all who have built out this remarkable community. I understand and will abide the rules.

Great read. Started on a few gold threads and it's been enlightening to say the least.
I'm a business owner myself, and passionately follow self development. However being rural it's not easy to find mentors or unsolicited ideas/new avenues. As such this site has been a absolute gold mine.

Cheers

Welcome to the Fastlane Forum! As a new forum user, we'd like to acquaint you to the forum, its rules, and how to maximize your membership. REVIEWING THIS THREAD IS MANDATORY.

:bulb:#1: READ THE BOOK(S)
First and most important, this forum and its philosophies are predicated on the two best-selling entrepreneur books, The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED. For a macro-level view, view our ABOUT page.​
To download FREE chapters to see if these books can help your journey (and navigating this forum) visit here:​

While reading these books is NOT a requirement for forum participation, reading them will help you get the most out of your Fastlane experience. Think of it like visiting a foreign country -- if you know the host language, you'll get a better experience. And even better, if you're an aspiring entrepreneur, both books were written to change your life.​
If you have read the books and would like your badge (forum flair, LOL) please post in the appropriate thread:​


:bulb:#2: START YOUR JOURNEY AT THE GOLD and NOTABLE Threads
A common question first asked at the forum is "Where do I start??"
Well, after you read the books, read the BEST THREADS of the forum, the GOLD and NOTABLE threads. Pick out the ones that align with your focus, or read them all.
:bulb:#3: INTRODUCE YOURSELF
This is a close knit community free from the SCRIPTED gulag of cultural mediocrity. Please tell us your story. The more the better. A simple "Hello great to be here" (while nice) is generally ignored by the community. We want to hear where you've been, and where you're going.
:check:INTRODUCTIONS FORUM. (Then click, "New Thread.")

:bulb:#4: NO GURU BS PLEASE!
Are you here because you're interested in using the forum to build your list, hot prospect, and enlargen your sales funnel? Word of caution: THIS BEHAVIOR does not work here and you will be CALLED-OUT on it, or worse, exposed as a charlatan. If your participation at the forum is conditional upon you selling, backlinking, or hot-prospecting the forum users, it WILL NOT END well.

:bulb:#5: BEFORE CREATING A NEW THREAD...
Do a forum search function to make sure your topic hasn't already been discussed. More than likely, it already has. Here are some common questions that have been answered a GAZILLION times.
While the forum search function is adequate, usually the GOOGLE search box does a better job.
Also please be aware: Content created at the forum cannot be deleted unless there are legal or privacy concerns. The reason for this policy is to ensure that our user's time is not wasted or stolen. For more information on this, please visit here. Threads can be edited for up to 10 days, while INSIDERS can unlimitedly edit threads.

:bulb:#6: FILTER THE BEST CONTENT BY LIKES
Some of our best threads are dozens of pages AND HUNDREDS of posts long. Unfortunately, the best material sometimes gets lost among the noise. The best way to percolate the best content to the top of any thread is to SORT BY LIKES. See picture:
:bulb:#7: NO BACKLINKING/SELF-PROMOTION OR GET BANNED
If you're here to promote something, place a marketplace ad. Otherwise, you will be banned. Here are some behaviors that will result in your Fastlane experience being short-lived.
  1. Solicit for investors or partners.
  2. Post backlink spam in your profile without any introduction.
  3. Post a meetup for some nondescript meeting and some nondescript hotel with a nondescript purpose. (MLM ALERT!)
  4. Be a deceptive advocate -- take part in a discussion about a company/product/service as if you are an innocent bystander when in fact, you are employed or financially invested in the product/service.
  5. Peacock as a guru.
  6. Be a troll -- this is a business forum that promotes PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and a GROWTH MINDSET. If you are a part of the SCRIPTED mediocrity and victim mob, you aren't going to last here. In other words, this is our "safe space" from the idiocy of safe spaces.
  7. Discuss religion or post political threads. While we graze political discussions occasionally, it's usually because they advocate SCRIPTED victimology, virtuous mediocrity, and anti-business themes.
:bulb:#8: FOLLOW YOUR FAVORITE USERS
If any forum user peaks your interest, follow them by clicking their USERNAME and then clicking FOLLOW. Their posts will show in your newsfeed.
:bulb:#9: KEEP THE LOCKERROOM "PUA" LANGUAGE AT HOME
I'm sorry, but none of us want to hear how you are a master at "slaying chicks", "getting laid" and "pulling tail". Women entrepreneurs have some of the best insights. If we are to benefit from their opinions, refrain from posting immature locker room, beer-buddy guy talk— keep this stuff to your own private networks. Look at this forum as a CEO boardroom composed of half women, half men. Don't be a douche as none of us want to hear your gender worldviews.​


On to the Millionaire Fastlane! I've ready Unscripted and can't wait to see what this group of like minded, fastlane forum has in store for us.

So far so good, a very mature community from first impression. I hope my avitar doesn't throw you for a loop... my company and band of merry makers are in the stress reduction business as we create original comedy content.

Read up all the rules. I've been lurking around here anonymously for a while anyway, so I understand the basics. :)

Thanks, for the info.
Has the option to sort by likes been removed? I can't seem to find it.
Best regards!
