Hi, my name is Ioachim, in my early 20's.
It's an honor to join this forum.

I began as an immigrant kid (live in US) with little perspectives and no special talent; basically an indentured slave to the Slowlane.

I bought into guru teachings and graduated from college about a year ago, only to find out that it further indentured me to the Slowlane (student debt). I was sold a lie that once I graduate with my degree, I would quickly start making a successful, low 6 figure annual income. I began to work as an intern in my field and the reality was different. The corporate ladder I had to first climb was hideously long and unpromising. A manager that worked there for over 30 years kept complaining that she cannot afford the mortgage and she is looking for a second job. In order to retire early in 30's with a million or two in that Slowlane, I would have had to be magically offered a high position job right out of school, put 90% of my income into investments that would hopefully and stably yield bountiful 10% a year, never get laid off, nor pay for rent and food, teleport instead of having a car, and get away with not paying income taxes.

I felt something was not right and there must be something better than this. That's when I came across the book Millionaire Fastlane and MJ's YouTube videos.
I couldn't agree more. Fastlane to the financial freedom was what I wanted. He pinpointed the things that were in the back of my head, and the perspectives and knowledge he shared are solid and amazing.

I recently switched to a family business and am working on finishing MJ's 2 books. I'm beginning to entertain a few ideas at this point of my life to transition to the Fastlane.

Years from now, I hope to be able to reintroduce myself with my successful event and process stories.

Thank you for reading my humble introduction.

@Ioachim, that line you wrote right there...that's powerful stuff. On your own accord you were able to realize that. Congrats, and welcome to the forum!!
I appreciate it. I used to think that working to death on the Slowlane was the norm, since nearly everyone around me does that. Then I began to have my dreams and desires. That's when I subconsciously realized the need of Fastlane. I'm very satisfied that I found MJ's books and this forum.

Hey man, welcome to the forum. I agree, his book was absolutely sick. I am 20 years old. I would love to connect bro and chat Fastlane ideas!
