Hey guys, I'll try to make this as concise as possible.

As my username suggests, I'm from Mexico, born and currently reside in this beautiful but strange country. I'm 28 years old. I actually joined the forum more than a year ago but had no idea what I even wanted out of life at that moment, so I didn't post an intro,

Let's start with the very beginning of my fastlane journey. I read the Fastlane Millionaire some 4 years or so ago and loved it, found out about the forum and lurked from time to time but at that time I was too scared to take real action.

Fast forward to a month or so ago, and many things started changing in my life in this short period of time.

First of all I was feeling fed up with my job, and was seriously considering returning to my original career and starting again in it (three years ago I left my career only to end up in a menial job with very low pay handed to me by a family member to help me out). I was (am) just tired of being poor and having no direction or sense of purpose in life.

Before jumping back to my old career, I decided to read Unscripted out of desperation I guess, and inmediately remembered why I liked the Fastlane Millionaire so much. Creating value instead of stealing it just resonates with me so much, and thus I started thinking in Unscripted/FLM mode and looking how with my current skills/knowledge (plus whatever others skills I must learn) I can create some real value.

I actually came up with some ideas, and decided to pursue one which follow the CENTS commandments and create value as well. (Which I will explain in better detail later, as not to clog this already long post)

Then, I spotted a golden opportunity in the company I work for to make some serious money, learn the executive/manager trade for real and possibly get some serious passive income due to the nature of the company. (Which I will also explain later in more detail).

Around this time I also (unadvertedly) had my F*ck THIS EVENT. I was helping this girl I strated dating not too long ago (but whom I really like and want to explore the long term potential with) with furniture shopping for her new apartment. At this point in time we start joking around since the store helpers thought we were looking for furniture as a couple, and at this exact moment the truth hit me like a ton of bricks. I couldn't afford a single piece of furniture. I can't provide for myself let alone for another human being (not that she needs it, since she has a very good job). I feel like a loser on a daily basis due to my financial situation, but this was different, this burned deep to my soul. I felt like crying right there, and still do every time I remember the incident.

Bear in mind she has no idea that I'm actually poor, since we have been dating only for so long, because I am an excellent pretender, I have almost no financial obligations, and have a family that have provided me with fancy things like a nice car and cool trips (which obviously also make me feel like a loser).

I didn't even realized this was a FTE until I started writing this intro, which I had already planned before the incident.

So anyways, this is my introduction to the forum. I will expand shortly on my two current business ideas.

Ave Caesar! From your thread title it is clear that you won't need motivational prompting, and your post bears this out.

When your ideas are revealed (discreetly so as to avoid risking competition) they will no doubt prompt many helpful responses.

Best Wishes,
Walter
