Greetings fastlaners. Just finished both unscripted and the millionaire fastlane . Both very amazing reads, not the feel good type of book.Cant thank @MJ DeMarco enough.I started my entrepreneurial journey at 20 years old .Like many of you here i was interested in making money for the freedom fire my boss and travel the world.Well... I was in for a rough treat .

I got my real estate license around early last year while working retail and decided i would be rich quick and use those proceeds to invest in real estate since its what "successful people do" .Well a couple months in i got fired from my retail job.(Yay...maybe i was actually happy , ill stress over my bills later.)Also did i mention i had no saving at all with college debt.I funded my first business with my credit card and sooner than later i was maxed out,fortunately though contact work making 300 calls a day i gotten my first commission of 8000 US dollars.Ive felt the same as a matter of fact I hated dealing with customers and all of there objections so i left (Mistake #1 Provide value,dont just do it for the money )

Forward a couple months and many of those hot leads ,All off a sudden told cold nobody wanted to sell.I decided to get a job as a bus driver part time while searching for another get rich quick scheme(P.S there arent any.)

Found it ,it was amazon fba .This time i decided to set up my account in Germany since the market was unsaturated.Wrong(Mistake #2 dont build a business on somebody else platform)
Long story short ,Created my account ,found an unsaturated product ,negotiated with supplier ,brought into warehouse ,2 weeks in enjoyed plenty of sales amazon removed and is still reviewing my listing .decided to not pursue further and just get keep my money from sales and proceed to do something else.(Mistake #3 use amazon as a channel not your main business have an ecommerce site of your own)Frankly i could still keep going with the amazon business if i decide to diversify my channels and make my own domain.But will i be giving value.No its a copy and paste product.

Fast forward today and I just want to give value.Understand that in order to get results you must put in work and its just alot better to do it with something your naturally good at or that YOU see yourself for the long term .Let us all help each other achieve our goals feel free to pm me

Im assuming by relative value you mean to focus on there benefits instead of features?

No, relative value is a concept discussed in Unscripted . There are a lot of things in this world that are valuable, just not relatively valuable. A good example is a blog full of fitness tips: It might be valuable, but in the global pool of offerings, it won't be perceived as relatively valuable.

Ah I see.So far I've only read the millionaire fastlane . Already downloaded unscripted .These are the kinds of books you read multiple of times,really appreciate the response .Also by any chance do you guys do meet up in NYC?

Hey there,

not sure how much truth there will be in your posts, but i wanted to say "Hello" too.

Don't try to impress. This stuff doesn't work so well in here for the long run.

Best of luck!
Oh wow , haven't even noticed.To sum things up Ive skimmed through both and just finished deep reading the millionare fastlane .Not trying to impress just learn and help anyone that has question.Thanks for the heads up though
