    Hey Guys! I'm an 18 year old fellow living in Switzerland.

    Currently I'm in a apprenticeship as an electronics engineer. But I decided that this is not the thing I want to do for the rest of my life. Same sh*t same day working for other guys and so on.

    I decided that I want to become an entrepreneur and start my own business to enjoy freedom. And this is also why I've read TMF and wich opened my eyes and gave me courage that it's possible to make it out of the "Slowlane". This is also what brought me here. I loved the book and I'm planning to read Unscripted to.

    Currently I'm reading a lot of books whenever I can and hang out in this forum. But I want to take the first step as early as possible and lead my energy in a way that shows some results. This is the thing what I'm most struggling with. I'm educating myself but I still don't know where to start and take the first steps building a business. I'm also having a hard time connecting with others wich have the same dreams like I do. There is still no day I'm not working towards my goal.

    Nevertheless I want to THANK all of you wich are sharing there experiences and knowledge in any kind of way to help people like me achieving there dreams! Also a big THANK YOU for MJ Demarco for providing such a value and building a community like this!

    Hello Jason, and welcome to the forum! From your post, you sound young and eager and that's great. You're reading and learning and that's also great. You said you "...don't know where to start and take the first steps building a business...".

    You've probably gained a ton of knowledge, and might be feeling overwhelmed on all the directions you could take to start a business. I suggest taking more time to soak it all in...but give yourself a deadline to start on something.

    My immediate advice: Read (or at least get the audio book) of UNSCRIPTED. Pay very close attention to the "Meaning and Purpose" section. You really need a concrete "WHY" as you start taking real action, and minimize the chance you'll be lured into other things as soon as taking action gets hard/boring/painful/scary.

    By the way Jason, I've been to Switzerland in 2016 and your country is absolutely beautiful. I'm going back later this year.

    Hi @Jason Suter. Just curious: how do people in Switzerland perceive entrepreneurs? I've always considered Switzerland one of the most business-friendly places in the world but I'm curious specifically about the general attitude of society toward business and wealth.

    Switzerland is indeed business-friendly, but there is always this bank-thing where you need to show a business-plan and everything. There are also renominated business/economy schools and universities. But this is nothing to be compared with the Fastlane. It's very hard to make in there and there are mostly people wich their parents are entrepreneurs and already got some money.

    My goal is to finance my "start-up" by myself and not by begging a bank for money nor to go to a university after wich you learn the "common" way how you "should" start a business.

    The attitude of the society in wich I live in is like; you need to have the right idea at the right moment and you need to be lucky or have already alot of money. But I think it's not everywhere the same. I live in a middle-class-familiy where everyone has a job and isn't very wealthy. There might be other people or regions in Switzerland where there are more entrepreneurs and wealthier people wich have a different perception.

    I don't know any entrepreneurs and there are also none in my family. I would love to talk to someone wich made it, especially in Switzerland. Because I also don't know how the law exactly is and everything.

    I hope I could give you some insight with this, but don't take this too serious or something. This is only the way I see it or know it, but there might be other opinions or things that I don't know.
