    I discovered MJ's books through suggested reading from Audible. Through these books, I realized how bad things really are...
    Current debt load from living the scripted life is almost $200k. That does not include a mortgage, which thankfully I do not have anymore. I sold the house and mortgage last year to some other scripted sucker. The higher income means higher spending power trap got me really good. Almost to the point of no return.
    The smack in the face with the reality of the situation was great and all, but I already knew I was in a tough spot and needed to get out. I just didn't know where to start until MJ's books.
    I have had invention ideas since I was in my teens, I just never knew what to do with them or even had the belief that I could do something.
    As I dig myself out of this crater, I have a goal now. I have something that will provide value to the world. I also have the knowledge and support to get off my a$$ and get the right things done in order to get there.
    Am I always doing the right things? HAHA, not even close. Decades of bad habits take time to change. But those changes are being made and I am moving in the right direction now.
    Every time I feel stuck, and those times are still very frequent, I fire up one of MJ's audio books and get my mind back on track and refocused on what is important.
    I know it's going to take a long time to get out of this sh*t storm, but now I have a roadmap with a clear goal to guide me.

    Bless those algorithms... the specific lines of computer code that made this magic happen!

    And thanks for sharing your story, @John F.

    That's a great idea... I'm probably going to buy the audiobooks as well (I bought the Kindle books).

    There are also amazing and experienced people here ready to help... if we take the time to do our homework first and ask good questions.

    Thanks again for sharing your story, and welcome to the Fastlane!

    That is one loud debt. But you’ll be a king once you get over it

    The world is a little crazy...better late than never.

    Haha
    That is great! A little bit of luck sprinkled into it. Nothing better than that



    Welcome from me too!
    You’ll love it here...

    Welcome!

    I have seen $200k and up as common numbers for college debt in doctoral degrees. This may not be your situation at all but it can create the same mindset. You can overcome it- this is the perfect place to be!

    Very poor financial decisions, like buying a house that needed way more investment than planned and a college education that got me over 6 figures of debt all by itself. I have spent the past several months just trying to get my financial situation out of the gutter. Poor decisions come with consequences. I have worked out the debt problem. Now it's time to push the business forward.
