- Sep 3, 2017
"Fastlane" is an entrepreneur discussion forum based on The C.E.N.T.S Framework outlined in the two best-selling books by MJ DeMarco (The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED®). From multimillionaires to digital nomads to side hustlers who are grinding a job, the Fastlane Forum features real entrepreneurs creating real businesses with one goal in mind: Freedom— both financial and temporal.
Most of them choose the opposite. Flying private more than doubles your risk, but they find that worth it.There are risks in everything. The key here is really to mitigate them to the best of your ability and risk tolerance.
For example if you could pick an airline that had an uncrash-able plane vs current airlines, but cost 50x the price would you do it?
I would not because I couldn’t afford that. But if I had $50M, I would choose it.
But other $50M net worth people may not choose it because they are ok with the reliability of current planes.
My commute changed from drive-train to bus-subway due to an impending train tunnel closure so I no longer drive to the train station. For errands and trips out of town we use my wife's car.How is it working out so far, and are there any challenges?
Almost 2MPG, it has to be a gas saver!You know, the more I think about this, the more you may be right. I better go out and buy me an armored van this week. And then, I'm going to have them move the drivers compartment to the middle of the van and drive via a monitor so I can be completely out of harms way. And this way I can also have my helmet on and no one can see me. Damn good idea..... Anyone know where I can get something like this? MUST be a gas saver
If your consistent sarcasm wasn’t amusing it would be complete crap.You know, the more I think about this, the more you may be right. I better go out and buy me an armored van this week.

Holy crap, that 2008 just got destroyed!
No myth. See that car to the left in my avatar (black & yellow 1BK). We put some duct tape on the top wing one time and it held it together at 140mph for a 25 lap race. Nascar used to use regular duct tape for many years.This is not Myth busters. :-D
I will try a two component high temperature glue.
And no, I do not have this tape at home.
@MJ DeMarcoI actually own a 300zx which I bought back in October of 2007. Ya it's just a toy and was nothing but a money pit for a few early years but its the only car I have and at this point, it actually retains its value. I don't really need a car since I work downtown and can take public transit. It's paid off a long time ago and doesn't cost me anything to own right now besides basic vehicle registration and insurance. I did think about selling it because I don't NEED it and is one of those material possessions that act like ballast since it needs greater maintenance, indoor parking etc. However, I also would like to think that the reason why I am keeping it also stops me from eyeing other cars since its already pretty quick and a nice drive. If I would have sold it, I would probably be more tempted to look at other nice/fast cars. By keeping it, it gives me the fast/nice car fix.

If I would sell it, I don't think I would own a car because I really don't need one. Living downtown and having services such as UBER, Lyft or Car-to-go, a car really isn't a necessity anymore.
From my POV...@MJ DeMarco
What is your honest opinion on me keeping this car? What would you do at my place? The only logical reason that I can think of with this car (besides it being fun and a money pit) is that it might be worth something down the line and gives me that fix for having/owning something fast while being paid off. It's still much less expensive than leasing a newer car or having a european luxury. I also do my own maintenance on it too and it's super reliable.
I couldn't agree more,a car is essential but if you will have to keep coughing out money to maintain it and you have a business to grow might not be a wise idea.Buying a car is often an ego trip that lands you in debt for years. I have had expensive new cars and after a very short period of time the buzz wears off and you're just left with an expensive monthly bill for little or no pleasure.
Don't get me wrong, a car is fairly essential in this day and age but I encourage my kids to only buy something they can afford and not get hung up keeping up with the Jones's.
