I finished Fastlane last night, and although I have already been on a path to make some changes in my life, I felt like this book was speaking directly to me a few times. Thank you @MJ DeMarco for some tough talk. Although I have no regrets, it's hard to swallow being 52 and not being where you want to be in life.

My plan of action:
First, I'm taking 2 weeks off in August to work on my business idea, and get things in place. Second, I am going to quit (technically retire) from my government job in December and work towards my goals.

Sounds simple, but there is more to go into this... figuring out insurance, my 2 kids in college, cutting back on spending, reducing our mortgage payments (currently we're doubling down), but after ten years at the same job, I'm so dull, and so done, and I'm excited to see what I can accomplish. I'm so excited, thanks MJ for your help!

Hi everyone, Hi MJ DeMarco,

I read the book in 3 days (my mother tongue is french). It captivated me and really resonates with my perception of life, entrepreneurship, wealth, money.
I am now reading Unscripted, and even if it has good content and deep insights, the core fundamentals are mainly the one of The Millionaire Fastlane.

I don't understand deeply how this forum works but I'll do my best to take the most out of it : finishing my master's degree in business and finance here in France, I am really interested in building businesses. Not "interested" that lead to Watch movies about it, "interested" leading to put my hands dirty. I took additional night classes about entrepreneurship, participated in sales competition, and have now written a business plan about an idea that has been on my mind since a dozen months, in the food sector.

Hope that I'll be able to contribute to this forum and that I'll be able to give as much as you gave me, with this new paradygm and vision about the Fastlane. I knew it deeply, but you kind of "opened my eyes".

Good day to everyone,

Best,

Marc Buzy
Bon courage Marc, le secteur Alimentaire est difficile, encore plus pour le Smart Food. (si jamais c'est ton idée).
Mais si ton idée est originale ça pourrait fonctionner ;)

Listened to the book on Audible and loved it, which is why I got "Unscripted" as soon as it came out on Audible last month. I love MJ's no BS, tell-it-to-you-straight, f**k you attitude, which sings to me as a rebel entrepreneur. :playful:

I've just finished it and now I'm taking the first few steps of Financial Literacy and coming up with good ideas. It's easy to read but it's time to put these things into practice.

Edit legendary ideas. Go big or go Slowlne/sidewalk. ;)

Bonjour Alessio ! Merci pour ton soutien.

L'idée est assez originale, reste à la réaliser et à s'appliquer dans l'exécution.
Je vous en dirai un peu plus lorsque je me dédierai à 100% au projet, et lorsque l'on aura mis en place la structure adaptée au lancement ! Il me tarde !
As-tu aussi des projets en cours?

J'ai également des projets, en attente depuis 4 mois malgré ma volonté d'agir, je suis en attente d'un local commercial adéquate pour créer mon propre commerce !
Je prospecte le plus possible mais rien n'apparait..patience patience..!

Finished reading it as well. The stuff taught on this book make so much sense and should be common sense. It just hurts my head thinking that before this I thought that taking the slowlane path could make me rich and achieve my dreams. Thanks MJ for putting all this information on paper, without it, I probably would still think that working my butt off 40h/week at some company will, one day, get me to where I want to be. Now that is just a bad joke for me.
