(I posted this in the web development forum too, sorry if double posting like this is annoying! I didn't realize there was a separate intro thread)

Hello everyone! I wanted to make a topic, just to introduce myself and to tell my story so far, to exchange some ideas and who knows; maybe someone will be inspired/motivated by it as well.

So I read (technically listened to) the Fastlane Millionaire in 2016 or 2017, can't remember.
Then I joined the Fastlane Forum in the same year, lurked around a bit and got really inspired by a blogpost by the name "CHECKLIST: How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency & Hit $5K in Less than 90 Days". Awesome thread, thank you so much Sean Marshall for writing it :)

Then I bought a shitload of Tai Lopez courses when it was on a Black Friday sale in 2018.

I started my web development/social media marketing agency in December 2018, as a sole proprietorship. Then I really didn't do much else, except order a shitload of business cards and make a website for myself, and a facebook page and linking them to each other.

Fast forward to September 2019, and I have my first web design customer! And now, as of Jan 2020 I have my second one. Woohoo.

I have charged these about 1000 usd each for the webpage (more or less).

The first customer is my sisters friend who randomly saw the webpage, and is starting a company of her own.
The second customer is the owner of the gym I go to. I got into contact with him by giving a business card to a martial arts instructor there, and he knew the owner so he introduced us to each other.

The plan for 2020 is to actually get way more involved in SoMe, and to actually start marketing my own business (especially on Facebook). I am still a bit unsure whether to invest more time/energy into social media marketing or web development, although I think web development is more interesting and fun, and I eventually want to get into SaaS as well, so it might be a smarter choice.

Alright that's it for me right now, feel free to shoot a comment. Thanks for reading!

Welcome to the forum. How did you like Tai Lopez's courses?
Brilliant info, particularly about Social media marketing and Ecommerce. He also has a Real estate course, haven't looked too much into it yet
