Hi all,

I read Millionaire Fastlane as my very first entrepreneurship book many years ago, before I had a business or any real business idea. I worked for a mid-level startup that got acquired and watched my 3 bosses get very, very rich doing what they love. That was the first time I ever thought "owning a business might actually be for me!". So I put the cart before the horse, and decided I'd learn some of the basics of building a business, then execute once I had an idea. Millionaire Fastlane was my first, and is still the book I recommend to get people 1) pumped about the lifestyle and making sure they understand what they're getting into, and 2) starting to think critically about business ideas, potential for scalability, etc. I went on to read many other books, but this is still in my top 5 and still what I recommend as the first read.

Fast forward, I started writing resumes as a side gig when my sales job wasn't paying the commission I wanted. I did well, spent very little money but worked hard on exposure, and ended up several years later with national exposure, a team of 10 employees, and half a million in revenue each year. I'm still building and growing, but I currently have a thriving business that is very fulfilling, and if I want, I can spend as little as an hour a week working (which I do sometimes when I travel abroad).

So that's my ongoing journey! I heard about the forums many years ago, but what prompted me to join was the general uselessness of the /r/entrepreneur subreddit and the desire to be around people who actually live the life. I don't want to insult the folks over there, but it's mostly people who want to own businesses, and very little sharing of people who really are living it.
