    Hey guys, my name is Michael N.
    I am a 21 year old entrepreneur who is dropping out of college. I actually was struggling for a long time before i read "the millionaire fast lane"
    For almost 2 years I have been dealing with massive amounts of frustration. I couldn't focus on anything, and I had no drive for school.
    this made no sense to me, because I had been a diligent person my entire life. when I was in high school I got dead last in the Region for cross country and track freshman year, and by my junior year I had made my self one of the fastest runners in the state. this was because i had bought books, surfed forums, and trained myself (my friend, who was like minded also helped me alot, i did not deliver myself, i also give glory to God). my coach actually kicked me off the team because i refused to follow in his mediocre training methodology from the 90s (one of the worst decades for U.S running.)
    when i became a Christian, I read the bible every day for five years for at least an hour every day (I still do). my first business happened by chance. I had a friend who owned a failing business. he struggled to find anyone to buy him out and just wanted to be out of his lease. I offered to buy into the company and slowly buy him out (at one time he offered to sell me the business for $8,000!) and in return, I was going to flip it. i worked 80 hour weeks and completely changed everything about it while preserving the good traits. i poured my savings into it, and at one point, had less than a hundred dollars to my name. I increased the numbers by 500% and hired someone to do my job for me. what started out as a company bringing in $200 a day, turned into a business bringing in more than $200 in 30 minutes, all in less than 3 months of me running it.
    I did all of this and yet couldn't muster up the energy to study for my pre-calculus algebra class (or any class really.) nothing worked, i just wasnt motivated. deep down inside, i knew it was a waste of time. I always needed a logical reason for giving my time to something, and there was just not enough leverage to sit down for 5 hours a day, lose sleep, and ruin my quality of life, even though the "payout" would be a degree everyone knew was basically worthless. key that in with a couple condescending teachers with an ego problem ( I assume they were the nerds of their high school who couldn't get laid and decided to take it out on me.)
    Que a successful business and a fresh new read (the millionaire fastlane)
    the realization that I was making more money then people with degrees, and that people with degrees were applying to work at my buisness, and I was ready to F*cking get out of that life style. I now own another media company which im still working on and im in the process of creating 2 other businesses and opening up my second location for the business i flipped.
    Im glad the millionaire fast lane came to my life. if it hadnt, i would still be mindlessly pursuing a degree because it was a "good back up plan."
    never settle guys.
    cheers,
    Michael N
