I read it yesterday, looks like a nice introduction for reading TFM or Unscripted. ; )

Also, looks like MJ is getting in love with the style of novels - I mean all the dialogs and descriptions. ; )

MJ, very excited about your new book coming out! Any update on when it will be released?

I usually announce a release date when the rough draft is sent out for editing. I'm still weeks away from that. Once that is done, it should be out within 90 days. For updates stay tuned at the forum, or sign-up here for advanced notices...


Looks like this book will be about 130,000 words.
(TMF was 120,000 words, Unscripted 170,000).

It was really good. got me hyper-mad and re-motivated to take things seriously while admitting that process is inevitable. Thanks MJ, once again.
It is also some kind of teaser to your sharpened writing skills - waiting for your semi-fiction book to come!
P.S - a book which I will wait to read, I don't want to read Unscripted until I have done some DOING and taken some ACTION. reading your books is enjoyable, inspiring and at times infuriating... Fastlane is enough to make a change, at least to start making one.

I started reading the book. I like it. I reminds me of how author of Economics books Gregg Easterbrook wrote the fictional short story The Leading Indicators about a guy in the rat race. Millionaire Fastlane more or less ignored the saving-money ideal that is so important while starting a business. You don't buy a new car until AFTER your business gets successful! Unscripted, however, noted how important that is. And although I was only able to read a few pages of Wealth Exposed, I like how Gary Patel tells the George-Clooney lookalike that the reason he's not rich is because he went into debt for a Corvette and nice house.

One thing: if MJ heard this story in 1995-96, how was Gary Patel able to talk about driving a crappy PT Cruiser? The first PT Cruiser hit the streets in 1999! PT Cruisers were built on the Dodge Neon platform. Surely Gary Patel drove a Dodge Neon? I don't know though, those Indian guys love the old Japanese cars!

The story is BASED UPON a true story. The details aren't entirely accurate or from a distinct memory. What is true is the main theme of the story.

Finally!

I just launched a short story on Kindle (FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited)! After several weeks of modifications, I put my short-story up on Kindle. You might be familiar with it -- it is the heavily modified (and extended) version of the argument I overheard as a limousine driver. (This Kindle version is 4 times longer with 4 times the smackdown!)

Here is the synopsis:

Can a short 18-minute conversation I overheard from a millionaire make you a fortune?
It did for me.
And it can do the same for you.
Go back to 1996 and eavesdrop on the tense 18-minute argument I unwittingly heard. An altercation between two friends. One living a dream. The other faking it. Listen in on the powerful conversation that changed the trajectory of my life and ultimately made me a millionaire— many times over.
Delivered in a raw narrative form, step into my shoes as a depressed limousine driver and five-time failed entrepreneur. Witness the argument as I did, an argument that exposed wealth’s guiding first-principles. An poignant story of sacrifice, immutable regret, and life-changing insight... a transcendent tale relevant in an year, any economy, or any country.
Discover the right questions and you’ll discover the right answers— answers that will set you free.
Based on a true story.

Again, it is based on the conversation I overheard while employed as a limousine driver. If you already downloaded the similar story I offered here for FREE, this public version is a bit more elaborate and about 4X the length. After the conclusion of the story (it's about a 20 minute read) there are 25 questions to ponder, questions to help you *THINK* about your life (and business) going forward!

If you have KU, would appreciate some downloads!


If you are not a member of KU and want to join to receive the book for FREE, here is the link to join (affiliatized via forum system)


Audiobook now available:
Amazon.com: Wealth Exposed: This Short Argument I Overheard Made Me a Fortune...Can It Do the Same for You? (Audible Audio Edition): MJ DeMarco, MJ DeMarco, Viperion Corporation: Audible Audiobooks

On the execution front, I'm hoping this story serves as a bit of an introduction to my work to new readers in the KU eco-system. In the future, it also can serve as what marketers refer to as a "lead magnet". In the back matter, it includes both TMF and Unscripted previews. If the reader does not have KU, the price for the short book is $1.29, the price of a 3 minute song downloaded on iTunes.

Enjoy!!

PS: Makes GREAT reading while in QUARANTINE!!!! ;)
Most interesting read, got me thinking about what influences me.
