Hi everyone,

I'm a 38 yr old, mum of three based in the Midlands, UK, looking to kickstart my fastlane journey. My adult life started out pretty slowlane, good job with career prospects etc, but after being made redundant and making some poor decisions it descended into sidewalk. I did start a couple of businesses but failed to make any money and landed myself in debt which, thankfully, i've now managed to pay off.

For the past 8 months i've been entirely sidewalk, relying on government handouts for everything, which feels like shit but at the same time i've been taking action by learning web development, marketing and reading The Millionaire Fastlane ;)

I'm determined to pull myself out of this hole. My youngest child starts school next year so I want to start working on something now but i'm struggling to come up with ideas. My primary goal is just to earn enough so that I no longer have to claim any financial assistance so i'm focusing on that for now.

Anyway, thank you for accepting me into this forum. I'm looking forward to learning from you all and welcome any advice you may have.
