Hi all -
I just finished Millionaire Fastlane and could not put it down! It was one of those books that had me going through it with my wife daily after nearly every chapter, trying to apply it all to my life. This is a game changer if you're up for it and I am more than ready to invest myself in making changes in how I currently operate.

...

I've worked in the restaurant industry for the majority of my adult life and at the beginning of my 30's I became middle management, which was a big deal at the time. Since then I've been promoted to running a multi-million dollar restaurant as the General Manager and while it was the top of the top as far as my professional career, I couldn't figure out why it still wasn't good enough. I was miserable and ended up leaving that job to find some answers and really dive into what it is that I wanted to be doing.
I sat down and read Millionaire Fastlane recently and the timing couldn't have been better. Every day I have done something to create forward momentum to get me to my next goal. I recently failed at landing a Director of Operations position with a newer restaurant but I took that failure as a positive. It forced me to accidentally write out a business plan (I know, I know, I don't need the plan just yet) but it forced me to put down on paper the operations of the business that will be my restaurant, not someone else's.
My plan: As of 2018, I will open up my own restaurant. My favorite part of the book (albeit there are many) was SUCS. I will create a team of people who work for/with me who will every day provide superior unexpected customer service (because I can't tell you how often I pay for awful customer service). This will pair with the rest of my operations to create a restaurant experience unlike any other.
I will open up other locations and eventually sell the business.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Short story long, I'm motivated and feel like I have the keys to success that I've been seeking.

Thank you, @MJ DeMarco. Your honesty and humility do not go unnoticed.

Yours,
Jess

Wow, this is a big undertaking that most likely won't benefit from Commandment of Time for years. But I like the idea of leveraging your experience in something with a mid-term goal.

Welcome and thanks for posting.
