    Hey just a thought that popped up to my mind.

    You've got one week to come up with 10 thousand dollars. For the sake of the scenario you do not have any online businesses or profiles, just the knowledge in your head and other know-how.

    The money has to be legally earned so no drug dealing etc. And you have no prior acquaintances, all on your own.

    Just curious what y'all might do.

    This is like one of those stupid facebook memes where it shows a big pile of cash and on the bottom "you must slap your sister or best friend for 1 million $"

    get the f*ck outta here with that sh*t

    These types of threads generally don't go well here, as they add very little value.

    More often than not, it's code for "I'm lazy and don't want to do any of the hard work associated with a business. I just want money to rain down on me because I'm me."

    If you have some creative examples of how you've made big cash in a week with no connections and only the knowledge you possess, then I could see this thread going somewhere.

    If you're just fishing for hustles to make a quick buck, well then it's headed for landfill territory.

    I suggest you read the books. If you've already "read" them, then read them again.

    I would read TMF and Unscripted, then read all GOLD posts. After that, I would buy fastlane insiders. Doing all of that would give me a new perspective on life and I would realize that starting this thread was pointless.

    With all due respect, I don't agree. I wanted to know what solutions the community here could come up with in a spontaneous situation. The "story" is indeed BS, but the thought and action process is what I was going after.

    Looking at the responses, I see that this type of stuff isn't well received here. I understand the reason so I apologize, I am very new to the community so I hope you can relate to a newcomer, trying to learn the ropes and get the right mindset...

    The focus on these forums is long term success, not short term schemes.

    Try to start thinking about what will have you earning 10k a week forever - not as a one time cash sum.

    Your post is similar to going on to a fitness forum and asking how to lose 20lbs in one week > you are missing all the great advice by wanting results too fast and easy.

    Haha,
    Seeing as I spent my whole day reading and following your guide on web design, I must say this is quite an honor. I am almost done with the courses and thinking of ways to approach possible clients.

    I think I was not able to convey my question properly, it was just a stupid hypothetical that came to mind, I wasn't looking for a strategy to personally follow.

    Again thanks for your guide, it's given me a direction to walk towards, and I am enjoying web design a lot.

    I'd pick up the phone and dial. Oh wait...

    Or hop on Bitmex with $1000 and play the crypto lottery on BTC swings with 100x leverage. $100k would be a bit more exciting IMO.

    The knowledge and ability come from Fastlane principles and years of practice.

    I might have to spam ( Like non stop spam ) the internet and sell a lot of stuff.

    Although it will require me to be registered as a sales guy already.

    I might still not make it.

    Just for the sake of conversation, suppose there was a hypothetical question. What would it be?

    Create a Kickstarter campaign to 'Save my Life' and put my life on the hopes of people's compassion and pity to pitch in for the $10K and save my life.

    As an incentive, I would promise to contact hundreds of media outlets after I have paid my ransom to tell them about my story and get some virality going for myself. From so much attention on me, I would seize the opportunity to market my business. Then, finally, I would pay back each person who contributed to saving my life with double the amount they contributed, giving them 100% ROI and the privilege of being able to say they saved a human life in their life time.

    To be quite honest. I prefer that this community does not respond well to that, I am part of numerous groups on facebook and all this got damn gooroos come out like worms from the ground during a thunderstorm. Circle jerk of how they made thousands doing this one thing, so now PM me.

    I also noticed that when I added MJ on facebook that NO ONE in any of these forums followed or are friends with him. Which validated him more. I am new here too, I prefer not to have that $10k in a week beause that the event, I am more attracted to the process that I can scale that income across different business modalities.

    If I needed fast cash:
    1. Find a Distressed Property to Wholesale
    2. Make an Offer & Convince the Owner to Sell
    3. Find a Title Company, Contractor, & Appraiser
    4. Assess Property’s Renovation Needs
    5. Find a Buyer
    6. Negotiate a Deal with the Buyer
    7. Close on the Wholesale Property

    But I wouldn’t do this as a Fastlane business I want something my kids grandkids and future generations can eat on its all about LEGACY LEGACY LEGACY
