Hello,

My name is Antti and I come from Finland. Thank you for accepting me as a member.

Around 2010 or 2011 I got interested in online entrepreneurship. I already hated my job with a passion although I had only graduated and entered work life five years earlier. The book "4-hour work week" + warrior forum and some other internet forums were probably the main inspirations for me in the beginning. I have always loved traveling so the idea of being location independent was also a huge motivator.

I first did affiliate marketing for a couple of years. Made very little money, maybe $100 overall. Then I switched briefly to dropshipping before starting selling on Amazon in 2014. Selling on Amazon has been the first venture where I have seen real results. I have almost exclusively sold my own private label products. I also tried online arbitrage for some time but couldn't really get any consistent results and felt it wasn't worth the effort.

I still have my day job (I'm a mechanical/project engineer) but my plan is to quit by the end of 2018 and go full time as an entrepreneur.

Over the years I have read many personal and business development books, including a lot of the classics. I honestly think that "Unscripted " is among the best, if not the very best, in this genre. I have not fully read "The Millionaire Fastlane ", I have only read the excerpts available here.

This forum seems like a fantastic community. There's so much information, I have already spent many hours reading and will spend countless more.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Antti

Welcome to the forums Antti, and congrats on taking action towards the Fastlane. There are a ton of members on here who are in the Amazon space, so there should be a ton of value around here and lots to learn. And maybe you can provide some value from your experiences too :)
