This is an email I sent to MJ. I got the auto-response that he can no longer answer all the emails but he hangs out here very single day.

I can completely understand that he may not be reading my email. But I guessed I can double my chances of THANKING HIM, by pasting here an exact copy of my email. Maybe someone else will also benefit from it....

SUBJECT: "[Please open] Just read The M. Fastlane"
EMAIL BODY: "Hey MJ!

I am really happy that I can send you this message.

Honestly, I believe that it will get lost between thousands of other messages or maybe even end up in the spam folder…

But this will not stop me from writing it anyway. :)

YOU CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

I am an entrepreneur from Romania (eastern Europe). I always tried 2 things:
1. Somehow get to live in the US (I truly believe it is the best country to be in)
2. Make passive income and make businesses that people enjoy.

I struggled with this because I missed some key points from your book (especially the NECST analysis and the monogamy).

Several times during my reading time I wanted to open up the email and shoot you a message. Then, I thought “let’s have some patience and see where this books leads me”. I was right! More precious info was on its way.

Well, nothing in your book was totally new for me. I knew all that in a way or another. But the FRANK way you presented things, and with your unique point of view, made me understand more in depth.

For example i FIGURED OUT that I had not less than 8 OPPORTUNITIES THAT I CHASED at the same f*cking time…I was super disappointed of me when I figured that out.

I loved them all, but I made a conscious effort to get rid of some of them.
-> I completely crossed out 4 of them.
-> 2 of them I devoted myself completely to (I have a partner for both of them so I figured it was ok to do 2; also they are both up and running).
-> 2 of them I just kept as a hobby, just because I love them. It is a course I am making (which is a one time hit and forget about it) and a small company directory (I had the database for personal use, and then put in online just because it was simpler for me to go through it like that, so I figured I can let anyone have access for a fee).

YOU HELPED ME FOCUS! I am sure this is just the beginning. I will cross off even more, with time.

Anyway, this was a THANK YOU message, in which I explained how you really helped me get one step close to fulfilling needs. Helping millions to earn millions.



I really hope we will meet one day so I can personally thank you!


Have a blessed Christmas season and an amazing 2019,
Remus Vargas :)"

Welcome Remus! Great intro, definitely read Unscripted next, incredible book.

What are your current business interests and skills? Looks like coding and software is a strong suit for you?

Thanks MTEE1985! I was going to place an order for it as soon as I place foot in the US, in January.

I will not be talking about the opportunities I crossed out, but I will give you a little background info :).

So, long story short: I worked as a developer and marketer for BMW and Microsoft. After about 3.5 years I was fed up by all the corporate BS. So, I started on my own.

I wanted to get away from programming/marketing, so I started a cold press juice shop in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. It was "OK". Though I did not know at that time, it was failing big time at the Commandment of Time. My gut said to close it, so I closed the shop after 1 year in biz.

Then, I worked as a freelancer for about 6-8 months (in marketing + programming). This is how I found my current business partner.

We own a Digital Marketing Agency in Florida (5x6.work). We do Facebook Ads, Sales Funnels and Web Apps in Wordpress.

The other business I was talking about did involve Real Estate and mobile homes in Florida. More complicated to explain it in depth here.

The 3rd one is a marketing course I was "side-working" on it for some time now w/o real achievements. My goal here is to teach people how to properly do Facebook Ads and marketing. So many people do it wrong these days and it is unfortunate. But I got this under "hobbies" for now and I will finish it in a month or two.

The 4th one is the directory with businesses I was using for personal use. And it was way simpler for me to search through it online, so I made myself a website. Then I thought to upgrade a little the interface and sell memberships to the public. This again is in the "hobbies" category and hopefully I will make it live around February-March next year.

The other 4 I won't even mentioned. They are discontinued for good now. :)

From the above 4, I will have 2 remaining (starting March). The choice to give up one of the two is pretty hard and I really have to take some time to think about it.

Wow! I am so glad it reached you! Thanks for the response. I will sure do.

I've already placed a reminder to order it mid-January. I can't wait to read it. :)
