Hi Everyone !

I have been on the forum for a long time and i have not introduce myself (not good).

My name is Nicolas and i live in South of France.
My mother stops working young to raise us. And my father is a construction worker.
So you can imagine that our lifestyle is very far from that of Dan Bilzerian.
But we were, and we are, really happy. Smiling all the time.

I have a BTEC Higher National Diploma. I was in the French army (paratrooper) during 2 years.
I learned electricity in a big company last year. And now I work in LED making for luxury companies (employee).

I feel EMASCULED at work.
Working from 9 to 5 is not a life. I would like to live a life that is worth living.
I'm breaking my head to know how to get out of this hellish loop!!

So that's why i'm hear. Searching for informations, motivation, knowledge and balls from people who have already win. For take them in example and collect money.
I'm buying an apartment for rent right now. It's a good deal. I search it during 2 years.

I don't want to make only rental investment, i don't want to be rich at 60yo. I want to work smart and hard now, to be cool later. But i don't know what to do now.

This is my story, i'm 25 years old and i'm LOST.

Time to take action. I'm also 25 and on the sidewalk (not the fastlane/slowlane) at the moment. Start doing things, even small ones. Some inspiration: yesterday, I sold an old laptop I had and a pair of headphones. $340 for MAYBE 1 hour total work. That's about 28% of my bi-weekly net income from my 8 to 4 job. It's not much, it's not a fastlane solution, but it's something !

Go, do ! :)

Welcome Nicolas!

Start where you are: what skills do you have that you can monetize?

Welcome and first off it sounds like you have many blessings including a loving family, a hard working father and a dedicated mother. You live in a beautiful part of the world and you have youth on your side.

There are many that would give you everything they have to trade lives with you.

You mentioned Dan Bilzerian. Not what I would call a role model. There is no substance there. Just a shallow media seeker that gives nothing and takes whatever he can get.

This forum is full of much better role models.

So what do you currently do in your job and what are your interests/skills that could make you valuable to the market?

Thank you for all your messages. I will not have thought of seeing so much enthusiasm.
It's nice and it's very motivating! :smile2:


Welcome Nicolas!

Not much, i have already make a facebook ads for a friend who have wedding room and he was satisfied.
I'm thinking about maybe starting an entrepreneurial activity of this kind after my work

Thanks for this words! Sometimes i forget this.. Like you say, it's a big luck and i'm happy for this!
Dan Bilzerian is not a model but one of the few I know with seemingly a dream life. Seemingly!

I change the job in April. I work in a LED job. I'm in charge of all the machinery. I learned (here) how to use a laser machine, an electronic milling machine and a electronic glue disposal robot. I learn this machinery here (the boss trusted me because I told him I did not know anything).

For the skills i don't know much.. Maybe when i speak, people say that when I express myself I am motivating and I capture the attention of others. I'm ready to learn anything that would be worth it.

Thanks all!!
