Hello Everyone,

I am currently reading The Millionaire Fastlane and decided it's time to make a change!

Being a typical slowlaner with a 9-5 job working as a Data Analyst at an consulting firm. I recently missed out on two new job opportunities with big tech firms in silicon valley due to a combination of a poor interviews and hiring freezes because of COVID-19. These setbacks have made me realize that I can't rely on living life in the slowlane and that if I want the freedom I seek, I need to be more confident in myself when it comes to starting my own business.

I've just paid off $20K in cc debt and decided that saving 10% of my paycheck and investing in the stock market is not going to get me to where I want to be in life.

I don't have any ideas for a business yet, but I'm confident I can figure out a way to make an impact on others and add value to their lives!

Looking forward to soaking up all the knowledge you can share and helping others make it to the Fastlane!

Thanks @lowtek !

I have not tried freelancing/contracting because of my own limiting beliefs in the past, but I think you are right it's definitely worth a try! Do you have any experience as a freelancer/contractor?

I was thinking about fiverr as a starting point.

I do. I've done a little bit of contracting on Upwork. My results have been mixed, but it was enough to validate that it was possible to earn money there. I don't know if fiverr is a good idea. I think it sets too low of an expectation on the client's part.

I just watched the youtube review of your experiences with Upwork, which was very informative! I agree that the name "fiverr" alone sets a certain expectation.

Thank you for sharing the YT channels to help get me started.
