I loved TMF, and this forum's name stem from that very concept, but personally I enjoyed Unscripted much more, it felt like a more complete book.

Regardless, they are two terrific books MJ, I'm glad to see you getting recognition for your work. Congratulations!

I think MJ even agrees with you too.

If I had to choose between the two to give to someone it’d be Unscripted.

First time I got the audiobook I couldn’t believe how effing long it is and that such a book only cost me $15.

Basically a playbook for your financial life.

Glad for things to start picking up in biz in terms of support. I'm at the point now where I'm focusing on putting every dollar towards the biz.

My broke a$$ is focusing on human capital now so getting an INSIDER sub will have to wait a bit. I'll have to update when I get a sub on my journal on the inside to specify what is happening so far.

Two days ago I drove my bike into a bus. That evening my perception changed. I had a completely different focus and a very clear mind. Have you guys ever had such an experience?

I forgot all unnecessary things. And only saw my goals and I knew what I had to do.

Yes thank you MJ. I only slightly injured one shoulder. I carried my bike to the hospital with the other arm.

And I quit my job just a few days ago. I saved enough money to live from for at least 1 year.

Definitely a FTE

ever get mad later in life at how much time u wasted because u were poorly educated by the system, either due to incompetence or something more sinister(matrix).

but there's literally nothing u can do about it now so u just shrug and move on, with more vigilance this time around.

I may be part of a minority that enjoyed TMF more than Unscripted. Something in the tone and voice that I enjoyed more. I admit I am still finishing up Unscripted (Chapter 41). Unscripted definitely has a more in depth analysis on CENTS and execution but there is just a certain magic with TMF that I can't pinpoint.

I’m learning not to blame my younger self for my ignorance. It’s hard, but i’m learning.

Yeah, just make sure it doesn't happen again.
Since I'm relatively young I haven't experienced real disappointment with my younger self, however, I do make actual effort to make sure it doesn't happen.

I don't blame my younger self either, but my younger self developed some bad habits and mindsets that are really tough to rewire all these years later.

like laziness and addiction, and just lack of discipline.
Just general kind of overly chill attitude thats all well and good until u get stuck in a cubicle, at which point u don't have the luxury of chilling out, but the path to escape that cubicle involves more work effort than you've ever had to do in your life up to that point.

It like paying the price for chilling out so much all those innocent years. lol

Well as my uncle says, "don't beat yourself up, the world is going to beat you up enough as it is."

Very exciting for me to see TMF #1 on the list.

Essence is a huge magazine, the type of thing that could land on Oprah's desk.


Nice holiday gift!
Congrats!!

In Belgium there's still a way to go.

I made a comment (waiting for moderation). You can guess what it was.

Anybody remember this episode on dragons den where a college professor called out the investors because he thought he knew more than they did? Here they had a real investment and real world/partners and investors and they chose their professor. Classic example of academia's pervasive intellectual arrogance.:rofl:
