Hey everyone!

I wanted to briefly introduce myself.

My name is DK and I currently reside in Amsterdam (The Netherlands).

I'm 28 years old, live in a nice apartment, have entrepreneurial friends, a beautiful girlfriend and lots of ambition. I currently work as a digital freelance marketer and trader making about $100k/year.

However, I want to seriously change my life because I still feel a significant lack of time, financial abundance, opportunities, joy and creation.

My financial aim: within 5 years I intend to have a net worth of at least $5M which would be likely the result of an exit or rapidly scaling business.

My contribution aim:
start a new business, scale it up to 7-figures+ and ensure we provide massive value to customers at a global level. I want people to freakin' love our business and our products.

My lifestyle aim: to live an unscripted life (i.e. full autonomy) within five years, own a beautiful loft here in AMS and a house somewhere around the Mediterranean. I'm also a big fan of Porsche and Lamborghini, but honestly, I can't tell which one I would prefer right now. My days I want to fill with kitesurfing, working out and the creation of a new business.


======================

Throughout the years I made many mistakes (including going to college and almost being homeless in NYC at age 19). But I learned from them, though it was incredibly rough at the time.

I started some small businesses (e-commerce sites) that I managed to sell for mid-five figures each a couple years. Nothing groundbreaking I can assure you, but still a somewhat decent start.

I've read tons of books on marketing, sales, psychology, goal-setting, you name it and eventually my path crossed with that of one of the wealthiest self-made entrepreneurs in my country with whom I'm now working.

In the meantime, I also decided to learn how to day-trade because I found it fascinating and after two years of intense study I'm at a point where I can consistently make decent money ($200-$600/day) with relatively little effort.

I want to use this stream of income to facilitate the creation of a new awesome business, that I have yet to decide upon.

I'm looking for problems I want to solve, brainstorm ideas with a friend of mine and overall try to keep my eyes and ears open to potential demands in the marketplace.

=======

I've noticed that the entrepreneurial itch is more intense than ever and I feel it's time for me to research some ideas, think about what brings me joy and how I can provide value to the world whilst also facilitating my own dreams in the process.

Hence, I decided to invest some time and money into new channels of information, people and action-takers, this forum being one of them.

I'm eager to learn from you guys (MJ, you the man :) ) and share my own experiences as I embark on this fastlane journey.

All the best and talk soon!
DK
