    Hello like-minded people,


    I just read TMF and I will soon start reading Unscripted. TMF was hands-down the best book I have ever read. It cleared all of the doubts in my mind about pursuing entrepreneurship that I had before reading the book. @MJ DeMarco, thank you so much for all of the information you give out for basically no cost.

    My background: I am 15 years old and I have lived in a small town in north Alabama my whole life. You could say my parents are "well off", however, they are still constantly running their business that is not separated from Time. By no means are they entrepreneurs though; they got to their position by taking the traditional slowlane route and falling into ownership. That means that they, like everyone else in my town, constantly preach to me the slowlane mentality.

    If everyone in my area is slowlane, then how did I become a fastlaner? Well, I am a knowledge-seeking person, so unlike my peers I have taken advantage of the internet and used it to solve every problem I have faced in life. My curiosity eventually led me to realize that the school system is BS (at least for me), so naturally I looked for another solution, and here I am.

    Things I've done: I put 7 months of work into an Amazon affiliate site and learned tons of brand new internet concepts that will help me with future ventures. The affiliate site is not making much progress despite my efforts and I have decided to drop it because it does not follow C, N, and maybe E of CENTS. Besides that, I have not done anything else entrepreneurial besides reading a ton of stuff.

    So here's my problem: I was looking to start a local biz (ex. carpet cleaning) when I realized that I am still 15 and I won't be able to drive for another 7 months. This Summer I'm going to have a ton of free time and I want to take action that will get me out of the rat race, whether the rat race is school or eventually a job. How do I free myself from the Scripted life as soon as possible? Don't tell me to "enjoy my teenage years" or something because I prefer lifelong freedom over temporary freedom.

    Wishing you guys the best.
    Thanks,
    Will

    Thank you for the link. I was in the birding niche, I decided to make an affiliate site because I was chasing money and wasn't considering things like CENTS or other TMF concepts because I had not read TMF or any of MJ's stuff yet.

    Will-

    I really liked your post. You come off as eager to learn, and wild eyed, but you're not talking huge plans right now. You're trying to build a foundation of experience and understanding.

    So, honestly, kudos to you. You've got the right approach thus far.

    --
    In my experience, I also learned a lot later in life, that I don't need to talk to *everyone* about my dreams and ideas and ways of living. A lot of people who love me and care about me, don't want to hear it. It just frustrates them all and annoys me when they don't listen. So I stopped. I live my life, but I try to live it in a way that blends in with family and friends and doesn't offend them if they are just doing the normal stuff.

    Anyway, my point is, you are already taking action. Even if it doesn't go anywhere in the first 5 attempts, I could keep going. You'll find better tools as you go along.

    Congrats on getting started, and realizing the truth :)
