Hello everyone,

Spent the last 4 years pouring my heart and soul into building a website for a business that wasn't mine, trading my time for money. Business started taking off and I thought all was good because we were all "friends". Once the technical side was done, I was laid off because they couldn't afford to pay me anymore. They are making millions. I'm an idiot. I loved what I was doing so it never occurred to me that they were using me.

Lesson learned. I have started building my own site/app and last week came across the fastlane forum in my drive to educate myself. Read The Millionaire Fastlane and completely changed my perspective. Thank you so much @MJ DeMarco ! I have lived my life from sidewalk (way too long) to slowlane and and have now moved into the fastlane.

Yes, I'm late. I wish I had found your book sooner. If I give anything at all back to this forum it's this; MJ Demarco is absolutely correct. Don't wait, do it now!!

First of all, welcome o the forum.

So, you've spent 4 years learning what it takes to develop a million dollar business. Congratulations!

I'm sure there are more than a few that would like to have first hand experience learning to develop a company that makes millions.

Embrace it.

Now use it.

4 years is is likened to a college education, EXCEPT rather than paying for it, you were being paid.

Now, go out and prove your worth, and create a business that will show that the last 4 years weren't for naught.

It is all about our mind wrap. Don't allow them to control your future even after your separation.

Their loss. Your gain.

Good luck.

Thanks, @million$$$smile that is exactly what I intend to do. I have already started working on a site and app based on a few improvements I was going to suggest. Now I am going to build out the improvements as a standalone product. Based on my last four years of experience, I already know the need exists and I intend to take advantage!

As many on here have told me it's never too late. At 47 I'm just getting started myself.

Welcome...I look forward to hearing about your progress.
