Hello. You can call me Ale, here. I'm 23 ,engaged, and getting an apartment soon. Like next month soon. We already have the lease. Me and my fiance make together 1,100 roughly a week. We can afford the apartment. And it'll be our first place! Very excited! Getting married in less than 6 months.
I'm a simple man but have great ideas and very creative. I'm primarily good at music creativity. I'm a musician. Have been since I was 13. I can make music but don't have the correct software to make professional music quite yet. Which music is quite profitable when done right. But I'm not here to brag. I'm here to grow. I'm also a help desk i.t. at a healthcare company and it's the best job I've ever had. The people treat me like family and a human being. Everything is going great!
There's a small problem though. Getting piad roughly 500 a week myself is completely a slowlane. I want to start a business. Not just that, something I can have complete control over and ownership. Period. And that way I'll have more time for myself. I'm getting into HTML and WordPress. Once we get into our apartment and set up the office room, I can dig more into focusing on my website I plan to build.

We live with a family member currently till we move into the apartment. I work 8am-5pm Monday through Friday. But I take up the day from 6am-6pm. So basically 12 hours are put into effort with waking up, eating, driving to work, working, driving home, and then about 4 hours of max time to do whatever I want. 4 hours a day is NOT what I'd call a fair trade for 12 hours a day. Once we move into the apartment which is closer to work, I'll gain about 2 hours. Max. So 6 hours of free time total on weekdays. That isn't what I call a life I want to live.

Me and my fiance are planning to have children in a few years. Sorry but not sorry, I DO NOT want to live every waking moment working for a negative trade-off and missed time with my family. Unacceptable. And now I'm at a point of disgust now knowing I CAN go MUCH further. I went from a grocery store job working since 2014 to last year in December 2017 as a computer repair tech at a PC repair shop after graduating tech school for i.t.education in August 2017. Then I moved in with my fiance (a couple hours away from my family because where I lived there were NO GOOD PAYING JOBS. NADA) in April 2018 and then got a job at a call center (which I have opinion about yet can't legally state till 2 to 3 years have passed). And then finally working my dream job as an i.t. help desk at a healthcare company in July 2018 (They are awesome btw). Now I'm at the peak of my skill-set. Tier 2 help desk. Roughly $500 a week. Hmm. Well. I could be a Network administrator? How about an I.T. manager? Team leader? No. I want TO BE FREE. A free man who owns himself. That's where I'm at. At the edge of the ocean looking out into the distance seeing infinite water knowing it goes on almost forever. But I don't know how to build a boat and sail across that wide open sea. I know what to do to survive if I was on a boat. I just need to build that boat and go fishing and make it to the promise Land.

This is my introduction. Nice to meet all of you!

Welcome Ale. Well you have several great pluses already. You are young. You have good IT skills that will stand you in good stead in these modern times, (especially if you want to create an online business). You live in a country that has insane opportunities. And finally you found @MJ DeMarco 's book, and this forum.

You have everything you need for independent financial success. All you have to do is follow the process. If I could pass on just one piece of advice it would be to be persistent. There will always be setbacks and things not going according to plan. That's the life of an entrepreneur. Learn from them, don't get discouraged and move on. And never, ever, ever fear failure.

Failure is part of the process. It is also what holds back a lot of people from the success they could have had.

All the best for your journey.

Welcome! I am glad that you are here. As @RazorCut said, you have everything to achieve what you want. Now the time is right to hustle, to work on the process, struggle, fail, act and win.
And one day we will share a cup of Milkshake together for your success.
Thank you! Not just to you but all others as well for welcoming me here! It's been a rough start getting into true entrepreneurship. But I've realized victory can only be achieved if you focus on the needs of others and play it all based on that. I've got a long road ahead.
