Just finished reading the book yesterday. Very insightful on things I was doing wrong and ways for me to fix them. As I've stated in another thread trading time for money is the biggest one I need to change. Even though I'm a pretty high dollar earner I'm still in the slowlane due to failing on a few different fronts. I've already made the change to outsourcing some of my work to free up time to build a money system that can work without me being around.
Well, I have finally finished reading the Millionaire Fastlane .It's been somewhat a long ride because I've been reading the book on and off since last year due to school and exams but at least I'm finished. Now my fastlane education shall continue on this website.
This book felt like a confirmation of everything that makes complete sense and a straight arrow shot to all the poopy information that has been brainwashing me as well as so many other people... only thing left to do is prepare to quit my job (before the year ends) and accomplish what I've always wanted for myself.
Listened to the audio tape while taking walks, very insightful and thoroughly motivating, thanks MJ! I've started freelance web design now with the help of a few threads on here and hoping to grow it into a business. While it's not entirely fastlane it's a start for me and I hope to acquire a bunch of skills that will let me pursue a more sustainable venture in the future!
I've read the book, it definitely made me look at the way I approached entrepreneurship differently. Instead of being fixated on not having a traditional job, I became more fixed on growing a sustainable business.
Building a business that can pay your bills, not that exciting. Building one that can enable you to do whatever you want much much more exciting.
I wolfed down the book a few weeks ago, and I'm about to start it again.
Some of my favorite parts: "YOU WERE BORN RICH AND WILL DIE BROKE" (w/ respect to time)
"The three fundamentals of wealth: Family (relationships), Fitness (health), and Freedom (choice)." - got the chills when I read that one.
I finished The Millionaire Fastlane . Wow - 5 stars. Thank you for taking the time to distill your thoughts and then share them in such an accessible way!
Key takeaways - (1) When everyone is digging for gold, sell shovels. (2) To make millions, you need to have great magnitude and/or scale. (3) Compound interest is put to use most effectively with large sums of money.
I read the fastlane millionaire back mid-2016. It really opened my eyes and I've been inspired every since. I currently read 3 chapters everyday just to keep the principles in mind. Great book Mr. Demarco!
I started the book four days ago and finished today. Read it before and after work. I haven't finished a book in ages. I already downloaded the audiobook. This information needs to marinade in my brain. I feel like 90% of stuff I've thought before at one time or another, but it never really had a chance to crystalize before I went back to my sidewalker/slowlaner ways. Cheers to MJ for being smart enough on his own to walk a path that led him to writing this great book and sharing his philosophies with us all.
I am curious. Before this book came out, where did people find something like this? There has to have been someone before MJ who wrote something similar? Anyone know?
I got the book finished last night. Probably the best book I've ever read. Only wish there was more.
Anyway, for anyone who reads this, I have one question. Early in the book, it is mentioned that entrepreneurs must aim to hit home runs, not singles. All you need is one home run to be successful. This implies multiple attempts, and plenty of strike outs. This seems contrarian to later in the book, the chapter that stresses you should be monogamous with one business, not trying to chase money, hoping to find anything that sticks. Hopefully someone can help reinterpret/decipher this for me. I understand the spirit of both parts, just would appreciate another angle or explanation. Thanks all. And thanks MJ.
