    Life can be so challenging. I am 25 years old. I have my own shopify website. I've been pursuing this entrepreneur dream for so long. Been working on it for over a year and now I have my own app. I have maybe $400 which are going towards bills. I guess I am a sidewalker pursuing a fastlane lifestyle. I want more for myself....Freedom. I live on my own, I needed my own space. I have no vehicle and the person I am so in love with is 5 hours away from me. I am so stressed out. I am not your average 25 year old. I don't go out and party. I served the U.S Army for 4 years. I can go on and on and on about myself but....What I truly desire is to be successful. Success to me is freedom, Making loved ones proud, making a difference, being your own boss, helping people thrive. Having that freedom gives you all the time in the World . What I want to DO with that time is what motivates me. I make 11/hr at a pizzeria. I dont want to work there anymore but I have to. I have to because I lack knowledge. My emotions lead me to come here in search for answers. Im not asking anyone to hand me anything. I work very hard and i'm proud of what i've accomplished thus far. One way or another I am determined to make my dream of being free a reality... My names Miguel by the way, very nice to meet you all. Have a wonderful night.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Life can indeed be tough but this is a great forum with great people and would be a good place for you to learn and grow as a person. I recommend reading both books as it will help put you on the right track. It did for me at least. Welcome to the forum I hope you stick around.

    Tim.

    Hello, thanks for your service..

    I'm not as fastlane as I want to be quite yet, but I am definitely getting there.
    You have 1 thing going for you that half the guys here would give you all their money to have..
    Youth, it's almost gone, but at 25 you're still in your prime.

    If I were you I'd start with a side hussle.
    Buying and selling shit of craigslist or FB marketplace, such as broken Xboxs or bicycles, or something that you can learn to repair fairly easily via YouTube. Resell at a profit, just to get a side hussle going.

    This is service based and isn't fastlane, however if you get good enough at whatever you decide to start reselling at a profit, you may be able to bring in enough to leave your job and then you will have that extra Fu time you can begin working on your own fastlane angle. And start bringing in some FU money.

    Find what people need, and help to fill that need.

    BTW I was 19D cav. scout so hooah..
    You got this brother, keep on it..

    Read the books. They'll give a high level overview what can be accomplished and it what time period. Working hard doesn't seem to be your problem -- you're not afraid of putting forth the effort -- it just needs to be focused toward something that yields a better dividend than paying the bills for the month.

    Welcome to the forum.
