Finished reading TMF last week, going to give it another read soon. I have also got a copy of unscripted, looking forward to going through that in the coming weeks.

Yes, read the book a couple years ago -- it completely changed my mindset and put me on a long journey of trying to break into the fastlane.

I was definitely a slowlane thinker before. I hoped that I could retire in my early 30s or 40s if I just scraped enough money together, put it into slowlane investments, and was frugal enough. Now, my networth goals are lot more aggressive, and I'm working hard to hit those networth goals through creating, owning, and operating my own businesses.

I have some updates and posts I'm hoping the community will be interested in.

Thanks MJ!

Hello!

I am reading the book now. but when I got to Ch 18, I got stuck and re-read it a couple of times before I admitted I was in trouble.

I confess I failed high school economics.

And even after I went back and looked up some of the concepts that were confusing, I am still unable to put the pieces together.

What the heck is an Industry Multiplier? Who picked these numbers out? Are they arbitrary? If not, how did they get here and who made them king?

Please forgive my ignorance, I am but a newly freed slave looking to clean off the dirt from the fields.

I've read the Millionaire Fastlane. Finished it a couple days ago. Fantastic book. A lot of it I learned through my own personal experiences, but some of the concepts were kind of floaty in my head. Like I understood and applied it but hadn't sat down and mapped it out. Reading this book was like laying a framework down on top of the concepts in my mind, give it a clear structure. Really awesome. Also really pushed the idea of time being the most valuable asset further into my brain. Feels like it's fully pushed in there now, like a solid block jammed into the back of my brain, hah. Love it.

Rarely does a book actually EXCITE me and this one was very hard to put down.

I picked the book up and finished it two days later.

I enjoyed how it challenged my Slowlane views. I was in the same place as @kody.kendall and thought I would just retire when I was 30 or 40 by saving enough from my paycheck with an aggressive savings rate.

My favorite message in the book is about how you need to solve people's needs and create value instead of chasing money. Can't wait to read Unscripted next...

Thanks for the book MJ!

I first read the Millionaire Fastlane in January 2020 and it really changed my outlook. I wish I had read this book right when it was published- I can't believe it took me this long to find it!

Got the recommendation from a friend of a friend and have to admit that I have been leading a "sidewalk" life. Finished the book in < 3 days and am now here to learn, exchange and share my journey.

I've read the millionaire fastlane. Read it the first time way back in 2016, it was an amazing book and I should probably give it a re-read soon. Biggest takeaways were the Fastlane, Sidewalk and Slowlane philosophies, and the 5 commandments of a fastlane business.

I just finished reading it! I wished I picked up this book a few years back so that I've more time to experience the benefits of being in the fast lane. I, as a creature of habit have stopped thinking for myself once I joined the workforce. I have been on the slow lane which is not what I wanted! Thank you so much for the enlightenment once again! =)

Thank you MJ DeMarco for revealing the truth to us all. With the help of this book I have come to the realities of life. Thanks to this book I am on the fastlane, mastering my skills as a software developer and a web designer.

I read Millionaire Fastlane a few weeks ago.

One of the biggest takeaways for me was the idea that the traditional 9-5 is a "losing wealth equation". It's insane to think that so many people blindly subscribe to this lifestyle, pushed upon us by society, without giving it some serious thought. After reading this book, I am convinced that it makes 0 sense to be an employee for life, put away 10% of your savings, etc. just for a "chance to retire by your mid-60s"—especially for someone who wants to make the most out of their lives. Not to mention the anxiety, stress, and lack of freedom you have to endure playing status-games, low-pay, and mind-numbing work.

In this day and age, you really have to think for yourself and figure shit out on your own, because in the end, there are no adults—everyone is just winging it. Somewhere inside of me, I always felt there was something wrong with the traditional path, and this book gave me the facts and frameworks I needed to shift my paradigm.

The seed has been planted (a few weeks ago) and shit is starting to grow out of it already. In this month alone, I completed 1 online course on product development and 3 other books on entrepreneurship. I also starting learning how to code (although this has been an uphill battle for me...). Well, none of that matters until I build my own revenue-generating machine, but hey it's a start and a huge improvement for me.

This book really has given me the biggest shift in mindset out of any other "money" book. Rich Dad Poor Dad had a similar impact on my mindset, but this one had much more substance IMO. I am just pinching myself for not discovering, and reading this book earlier in my life...Would've saved me from taking a few detours...Never too late to start, though! Reading Unscripted next. Happy to join this community. And thank you MJ for writing this efficacious(lol) book!

I read Fastlane after reading Unscripted. I was happy to have some of the concepts hammered in. I felt like Unscripted was more fleshed out than Fastlane, which makes sense. I prefer "CENTS" from Unscripted over whatever it was in Fastlane. It just makes more sense :D

Great books.

I've read The Millionaire Fastlane, and by far it's the best business book I've read! It's so clear and motivating: a perfect synthesis of the whole process of changing one's life for better.

I have read the Millionaire Fast lane. It is the one book that has reshaped the course of my thinking and the actions I now take. Quite revolutionary, I must say.

I completed reading the Millionaire Fastlane last night. I am not a fast reader, so it took me a while to finish this. I must admit, the initial few chapters were a little harder for me to get through quickly, especially since I felt I was being criticized on a personal level for having solely traveled in the Slowlane. However, once I reached the section of the Fastlane concepts, I couldn't put the book down. I am now looking forward to reading 'Unscripted' and to learn the insights that it has to offer. I do feel, though, that these are books I will probably have to revisit pretty often :)

Thank you for opening my eyes, MJ!
