"Fastlane" is an entrepreneur discussion forum based on The C.E.N.T.S Framework outlined in the two best-selling books by MJ DeMarco (The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED®). From multimillionaires to digital nomads to side hustlers who are grinding a job, the Fastlane Forum features real entrepreneurs creating real businesses with one goal in mind: Freedom— both financial and temporal.
Volunteering?It would be more productive with an index of important information, versus sifting through threads wasting time. Not to mention when you do, you find broken links. But I suppose the forum has it's purposes on the opposite end of the spectrum discussing projects.
that is a HIGHLY subjective term.index of important information
Bumping this.I was going to start a post about this but I think this thread is a good place to add it.
Many posters here are very open and openly offer their golden advice. There are always people in the world who have no visions of their own or thoughts of their own and basically will just flat out copy the successful people here.
It is very annoying for me to see someone copy one of my sites or one of my friend's sites. But it is very satisfying to see that site make no income, get crushed or disappear months later.
If you are someone like that, realize that you will get crushed if that's as far as your mind goes. If someone is selling shoelaces successfully and all you do is copy them and sell shoelaces you will always be one step behind. You see the person is successful because of the hard work and thought process going on behind the store or the site. Think for a second. If I told you to go buy a domain name then I uploaded to it an exact copy a successful website and say "here you go", what do you do next?
F*ck this is me... I'm going to think about this and look for WHYsTo give a simple example let's take a poker player. I could show them how to print money playing poker. I could give them a formula to beat the smaller games and they would be able to beat them. If players at those levels improved, then what would happen? Well, they would either:
b. move down to even smaller stakes and decrease their earn to make sure they kept winning
c. beg me to give them a new formula so they can keep printing the same money
Since they had not been trained why they were making the plays they were making, they would not be much smarter of a poker player, and would not know how to adjust if the games got more difficult. They were just a human robot doing something that could make them money, without actually learning something other than to copycat a successful strategy. If a year later games change they need a whole new strategy based on how the game has evolved, since they weren't trained to think, they were just trained what to do.
And this is my next action hereIf you are not sure where to start and want to make good use of your time on the forums, read posts by successful people. Ignore all other posts. Why do you want to read posts and/or ask questions about how to be rich by people who aren't rich. That has always seemed very weird to me.(don't get me confused I'm not saying don't talk to other people in the forum. it's great to make new friends with people with similar mindsets. if you want to get rich just spend your 'learning to get rich' time reading posts from those who are actually rich)
