Hi, I'm Adam from Dallas, TX. Don't usually join forums but felt this one was too important not to participate.

I read MFL over the past week or so, after seeing it mentioned in a success story article, and loved the attitude. I'd toyed around with some 4HWW-esque drop-shipping sites, but really lacked the motivation to spend any more than a week on them before quitting. Always had the feeling I was just trying to be a junk-peddler (starting a business to satisfy my needs). And I wasn't sure of the long-game in that scenario, anyways. The fastlane mentality of busting your a$$ for a few years on a "real" business then cashing out made so much more sense to me.

The past couple of months, I've been working on a social networking app for the music industry lately (very early stages), but it started as more of a passion project to meet a need in the community rather than a get rich plan. After the book, I was looking for fastlane opportunities but wasn't sure if this project fit the bill. But MFL really got my gears turning and I realized the thing that's been making me uneasy about this app, from a profitability POV, is its relative inability to scale.

Accordingly, I've decided to change course, strategy-wise, from expanding vertically in the music industry to expanding horizontally to other creative industries. In my estimation, this will give just the kind of scaling potential I need for fastlane success. This is long-game talk, though. I am only now taking the app into a beta release to get initial feedback from users. Nonetheless, I'm happy to have already taken the first step or two on my fastlane journey, and excited to see where this takes me!

Have the expectation that it takes 1,304 steps and you'll be fine.

Problems arise when people think it is 5 steps.

Welcome aboard!

Yep, working on that mindset currently - delayed gratification in the financial domain.

Was embarrassed of my resemblance to the guy from your limo story (Clooney, IIRC) - instead of the Vette, I opted for a Porsche Boxster at graduation. Not quite ready to give it up yet, but will be comfortable doing so if I get to a point in this business where the cash from selling it is what I need to move forward.

Since reading your book, I definitely don’t feel as cool anymore sitting in rush hour traffic in a Porsche.
