Hi all,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is (not important right now) and I signed up to the forum a couple of days ago. I decided to read TMF before introducing myself and I have to admit that I have "Tekel Syndrome".

I've been pretending to myself that I've been travelling the fastlane road but in reality I've been spreading myself thin across many too many projects and potential entrepreneurial endeavours.

Anyway, I stumbled across this site while researching a potential venture and all I can say for now is, I am very grateful to have come across the site and read TMF. Now I'm going to read Unscripted and then get to work on driving my fastlane Ferrari instead of stalling it ;)

Focus, focus, focus!

Thanks for the welcome guys, really appreciate it and I look forward to interacting and building fast lane relationships.

Also, I look forward to posting my success story and the significance of this period in my journey.

Really appreciate the likes and the welcoming and I'll post back soon.

(Back to reading Unscripted now)

Hi, me again. So, I've just finished Unscripted (great book 5* review on Amazon from me) now it's about taking the right steps.

Gonna make use of the Fastlane forum.

Thanks

It's always a pleasure to see someone willing to take true action towards their goals. Just remember that every action compounds. And bad decisions compound more than good ones.

Welcome, and don't forget to keep us posted!

38 days and counting since I joined this forum! Rather than post a progression thread (what progression...?) I thought I'd post in my intro a follow up on how it's going.

So, in short, I was a sidewalker and now I'm making the giant leap to the fastlane. After reading TMF and then Unscripted there was an initial excitement phase. This didn't last! In fact, it was up until my first failure following the genius steps laid out in RHL's thread:-

https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/teenagers-and-minimum-wagers-your-excuses-are-now-void-now-with-exact-steps.66084/

First mistake:- I didn't establish a raging need or want for the products I purchased. I bought them based on the potential profit I would make even selling them at below RRP.

Second mistake:- I didn't put enough time into the project. I was coming home shattered every evening from work as mine is a very physically demanding job.

The lesson I learned is that I took action for the sake of taking action but planning things out thoroughly is also action and sometimes overlooked. It's not the first nor the last time I will fail at something but failure doesn't have to be absolute. I wish I had some inspiring comeback like I've since found the right products and am making a tidy sum every week on my listings and shoving my girlfriend's ridicule back in her face. But I don't:(

After coming through the other side of the disappointment of failure, I'm ready to go again.

I feel like I've come straight off the sidewalk and been given the keys to a Ferrari (Lamborghini or supercar of choice). I know I have extraordinary power and the ability to go at spectacular speed with this vehicle but have never driven one before. So there will be a bit of figuring out, some stalling and refuelling along the way but eventually it will become second nature and comfortable to be fastlane!

To be continued...

Wish you all the best!

Instead of JUST identifying (and figuring out how to cover) a need/want in a market segment, I suggest that you pick an industry/sector which you have some interest towards and which seems to get more competitive with time - the latter part is to validate the profitability and survivability of that sector.

Thus, instead of looking at the economy as a whole and trying to find this previously unmet want/need that will make you X amount of dollars, you'll have a good grasp of a specific (growing) market which you will then be able to leverage to create your own product/service offering.

shoving my girlfriend's ridicule back in her face
This does not sound healthy. If you're incapable of being in a healthy relationship with another person, then it might be better to split up and figure out how to first have a healthy relationship with yourself. I see some potential in your post, but you need to understand that self-improvement is paramount for wealth acquisition.

Thanks.

This weekend is about figuring out things a bit more and picking an industry in which have some interest makes so much sense.

Regards the girlfriend comment it's a friendly thing, she has a slightly the wrong side of think bordering on negative at times but she's slowlane and I guess I just want to prove to her the power of fastlane.
