I read the book. Then I read it again. The first time reading it my mind was spinning from this new way of thinking. So I had to re-read it with this different mindset and things really started to become clear.

Thanks MJ

Read the ebook a few weeks ago, found it quite eye-opening. I had heard before the thought of focusing on helping people and creating value rather than making money but it was very helpful to see the idea fleshed out and all the great tips and examples in the book. I will be reading it again (and jotting notes) because there is just so much good info I need a second pass.

Thanks for writing it and sharing, MJ!

I just finished reading it, and was blown away. I've read several books in this "genre" and had actually put off reading Millionaire Fastlane for about a year, as I assumed it was just going to be more of the same. Wow was I wrong, and wish I read this book when I first ran across it. I've always bought into the Slowlane and wanted to do "hobby" businesses, but as you point out hobby business pays hobby income. The monogamy vs polygamy chapter really spoke to me on this as well. The way you broke down how you can only hope for small % increases raises in the Slowlane, compared to the unlimited potential in the Fastlane really opened my eyes as well. I am looking forward to putting the Fastlane Commandments into practice and changing how I view the next 35+ years.

Thank you so much for writing this book!

Hey Obiwan! The audio will be found in your audiobook library at Audible.com. Just use your amazon login and password to access the site. If you can, definitely pair the two up at the same time. It's amazing to me how much easier focusing is when you have audio + visual paired.
Sorry I didn't get to you sooner about the audio. I've got it now thank you. And thanks for the advice.

Read it in january.
Do you remember that interview with Marcus Lucas, MJ? If you do, know that your words at that video were the best lessons I've ever had. Closed youtube and bought the book immediately after that.
Thank you.

Read the book. I like the distinction between "Get Rich Quick" and "Get Rich Easy". Most people want the easy path and wonder why they fail.

Woke up at 2am this morning and just finished it before heading to work. I want to thank you . My path for financial freedom has been so based on compiling money and then being reliant on investing into stocks. This book has helped me see more clearly on what I should be focusing on. You're a very intelligent guy and I can't wait to scavenge all the posts on the forum.

My copy looks like my old elementary school books, damaged from all the notes and folds. My mom used to tell me this is how books are meant to be read :)

Read and loved the book. Basically everyone I think might like the fastlane-way-of thinking already got a one from me and especially my dad is already really taking things into action.

Sent you a Mail a couple of weeks ago about my personal opinion on the book.

Again, awesome Work!
It really changed my live.

I read the MFL after finding this forum and I loved it. I already believed that working all your life to retire at 65 was not the way forward but this book absolutely confirmed it. Thank you for writing it!

Finished reading it last week. Took me awhile to finish it though because I started a new gig after reading one of the later chapters where I had an "AH HA!" moment. Made the first sale yesterday!! Great book, for sure.

I surely did :D

I started on my Kindle during holidays on a Greek island Rhodes - my wife told to put down the bloody book as after reading few crucial paragraphs I started looking for business opportunities around our hotel :D :D :D

Funny thing is - I found some, but with no fast lane potential :D

I also listened to the Audible version and I come back to it on a long car trips. "Automobile University" as Mr. Zig Ziglar used to call it. :D

Yup, if it wasn't I wouldn't have written it -- I don't write stuff that is relevant for 2016, but irrelevant in 2017.
Hi MJ,

Just finished the book.

Loved it. Really connected the missing link for me that I had been searching for.

I spat out my coffee a number of times in fits of laughter. In particular:

"Going fastlane.... requires you to turn your back on people farting headwinds in your direction"

Amongst other comments of disdain toward the slow lane.

Love it, just the kind of tough love that I needed.

In particular I found very useful: The producer mentality, that really stuck for me.

Action I plan to do now because of your book: launch a independent publisher and produce training programs for people including videos, workbooks and skill building. This will allow me to work on my online skills, video editing and content production. Focusing on the knowledge I have to improve peoples quality of life and enable them to build their own confidence and skills.

Amongst other programs.

Thanks again.

I finished it last week - Kindle version.
I've found it difficult to concentrate on one book at a time recently, so I switched on Word Runner and powered through. With WR, focus is binary - all or nothing. A side-benefit is I've got back into the habit of focusing and reading fast [emoji3]
The book is great, it's really helped me decide how to redesign my tiny side-business into a Fastlane business. Now I have to execute!
I've also recommended it to a friend whose business is really a (well-paid) disguised job and has plateaued in growth for a couple of years. I don't know if he'll take the advice on board, but that's not my problem!
