Read Rat-Race Escape!

I think my main concern at the moment is that with web dev I'll just create another job for myself, albeit a really lucrative one. Even if it's making $200,000-$300,000 a year, it's not why I joined fastlane.
Could you perhaps expand more on the entrepreneurial fast-lane side of things? What are the typical kind of fastlane businesses that web developers start? Do you have any resources on this kind of information? I'd love to have an insight before committing.
(edit: is there a difference between web development and web design or can they be used interchangeably?)
So I don't want any student getting stuck with the title of "web designer" or "web developer".
The program doesn't teach code or design either - this can be learned anywhere for cheap or free.
We focus on how to work with businesses and solve problems - through web design.
Then we add in a bunch of other skills like copywriting, SEO, ads, systems, sales etc.
I would say the ideal approach is something like:
- first 6-12 months focus on getting a solid groundwork of basic skills and selling some websites
- then try add in some extra services like SEO / ads / marketing to build up monthly reoccurring revenue too
- and then after that (10-12 months) start using what you are learning (plus cashflow) to build a bigger more Fastlane business
"I think my main concern at the moment is that with web dev I'll just create another job for myself"
People get stuck in a job cause they only have one skill - they are limited as being a cog in a machine.
I really aim with the program to give enough skills to run the whole machine (start your own proper business).
Are there other ways to start in business? Ya, of course
But is this a solid way to start with a bunch of useful skills for someone new to the game? Yes, massively
