Hi All,

Nice to meet you!
I'm Carlos Ruiz, a mechanic engineer, 49 years old.
I worked every time on the automotive sector (25 years), for different departments (production, design, tests validation and sales).
I changed 3 times of company, to have a most interesting job, a faster professional progression and a better income... At least, that's what I thought

Then I randomly came across the Millionaire Fastlane and I put everything on the table (what I have, what I spend for it, where I will go) and I realized my mistake.
Ok it’s clear, I took the wrong way, it's FINE!!! ... Yes it’s fine because I know now.

To change my situation, I’m using now all of my skills learned during this 25 years and I'll create my business.
I decided to join the forum to read your post, to learn more and to share my experience during my evolution from engineer of one company to entrepreneur.

I'm starting my plan, I know... it'll be difficult but for sure more motivating.
See you soon

Nice to meet you, sir.

Here is a helpful thread that I believe everyone should read and internalize the wisdom:

Don't start a business. Start helping people instead.

How can you make the world a better place for people? Who can you help to make his or her life better?

I promise you that the most difficult challenge you will have as an entrepreneur is your mindset. Keep your focus on helping people, and you can't go wrong.
