I actually found the book from this forum! I was looking at some stories about an Amazon business going well. It is backlinked to a thread of this forum. The thread's discussion is very in-depth and interesting, which lead me to think what this forum is about.

I discovered the forum is based on MJ's book TMF. I vaguely remembered I saw this book on Amazon a while back, laughed at the title and thought "ya right, another get rich fast book". I purchased the kindle version without any hesitation this time and started reading right away. OMG, I wish I read it much earlier! I finished the book and also purchased the audio version so I can listen to it again in the gym.

There has to have been someone before MJ who wrote something similar? Anyone know?
I thought Rich Dad Poor Dad grazed something similar, but not to the depth where I went.

There's also an old book called "Your Money or Your Life" (Gonzalez author??) that also has similar ideas insofar as a money system concept.

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.
I answered here:

Fastlane - Be in the business of "home runs"...

Glad you enjoyed the book.

I read the book over a year and a half ago. It was not my copy. I recently ordered it from Amazon, to have one on the shelf or for re-reading. It arrived yesterday and I started re-reading it. On chapter 4 right now.

And this is in Kolkata, India! Thank you Amazon :)

I've read the book a year ago and it totally changed me as a person. It gives me the urge to do something
remarkable in the aspect of financial freedom. It gives me a deep realization that being in the slowlane
is putting my time and effort all to waste.

I just read it for the second time. I love how the first 1/3 of the book is everything I've always observed about other people, but MJ just organized those thoughts so beautifully, and he really pinpoints exactly what is wrong with the sidewalk/slowlane way of thinking. His analysis of Time being the most scarce resource we have, is spot on. Driving an extra 30 minutes to save $10. I've witnessed this so many times and it never made any sense to me.

Well, I have just completed it. Read the book. Though I have to make it into habits. That's will be though.
Anyone built habits out of the book?

Hi MJ,

I read the book in January... LOVE IT!
Then I read a few books on business models, like inventing products and real estate. Now I'm on my second re-read of Fastlane Millionaire.

Also just downloaded 'How to build a billion dollar app' by George Berkowski, which I'll start reading soon. I've got an idea for an app - a need that I haven't seen anyone address very well yet. It's kind of niche but could be worth something if done right.

Also, I've taken the school of hard knocks course on real estate investing, and thinking about trying that again but smarter this time around.
Any resources (models, books, authors, mentors, websites, etc.) you recommend for investing in real estate as a path to millions? Same question for Apps?

Thanks a ton!

I just finished reading the book today! Amazed at how much my mindset has changed from beginning to end. Training my brain to be conscious of when I am committing treasonous acts and figuring out how I can produce to millions. Thank you MJ!

Reading TMF for the 2nd time while ironically in the shop watching my POS Mercury get fixed.

I'm having difficulty reading because of the loud daytime TV blaring a morning squawk show featuring a "child motivational speaker".

Read the book. Fantastic stuff. Great job on breaking down the mindset of sidewalk, slowlane, fastlane individuals. Also loved the decision-making info, especially your CENTS framework. :thumbsup:

Burleson, to
Just Finished! Great book. It made me think for myself instead of relying on other people's mindless slander in books and make money subscriptions to prey of the desperate. I have been the desperate and the fool. Ready to put the advice to work

I read it two months ago today and forgot to mention it in this thread. This book changed my mindset and as a consequence my life. I am working with a passion that I have never had before and I feel empowered. Thank you MJ! I hope that as I grow I can continue to contribute, and maybe one day I will help as many as you have.

Finished reading TMFL yesterday! I have to say that this book has definitely changed my outlook on entrepreneurship and life in general. As I thought about it, it's interesting how many aspiring entrepreneurs seek mentors to help them learn more and more, and know which steps to take at the right times. In reading the book, it's like MJ is the mentor to the audience because he is giving us the foundation for what we need in order to put the wheels in motion! I know that I will be putting what I have learned in this amazing book to practice, and I cannot wait to read the next book! Thank you, MJ!
