The Story Of A 19 Y/O Future Millionaire

Hello Fastlane Forum! My name is moneydluffy. I am a 19 y/o from Europe.

Ever since I was a young guy, I couldn't wrap my head around the "script". Why would anyone work 5 days in a job they hate for 2 days of the weekend? How would you truly get rich if you accept a couple thousand dollars/month and do the same shit for the rest of your life?

It just felt wrong to me. But hey, everybody was doing it. My parents were doing it. And everybody around me quickly ridiculed any thought of becoming rich because the rich are either born rich, win the lottery or get there through stardom.

I should just finish school, get good grades in college and get a save job. Yeah right ....

A major life crisis when I was 16 y/o led to me getting my shit together and focus on leaving this mediocre life behind. I started reading, building skills, working out and then finally, I caught a glimpse of the lifestyle I always wanted since I was a kid.

I found a successful website that talked about making money online, traveling the world and living life on your terms.

I was hooked, inspired and ready to start. Making money online was always in the back of my mind. I read about guys making 2k/month and at the time to me this seemed like the jackpot because my parents never made more than that.

So I quickly got to work and build a couple of websites. Soon I was doing 50$/month completely passively. This just showed me that it was possible to make money online with your own business. Unfortunately, after some time I had to shut it down because I wasn't 18 yet and I hadn't had an official business license.

I kept publishing free content and planned to get a job when I finished school, so I could save money that I would eventually invest in my business.

That's exactly what I did. I graduated with 18, got a job for one year and saved every penny until now while others spend it one stupid possession to look like they finally have cash. My contract expires in October and that's when I will register my business license.

To be honest, I am afraid. I am afraid to go down this road of entrepreneurship and the road less traveled. I am afraid because I feel like I am not ready. I am afraid because everybody tells me that I should apply for university and stop dreaming. I am afraid because all of my old school friends already got themselves a slowane university career. I am afraid to fail.

But I know that that's not what is going to help me reach my dreams. First step is taking action and getting myself to a sustainable income per month so I can finally move out of this crappy small home town of myself and finally start living on my own, and actually living, not working for someone else but getting closer to my vision and working to build my empire.

I am very fortunate that I found The Millionaire Fastlane . This book confirmed a lot of my beliefs, got me to rethink my plans and stay on the path. Unscripted is already ordered.!

I am also veryhappy to have found this community as well. I have been browsing through a couple of GOLD threads and have already found so much valuable information, it's unbelievable.

I am going to learn even more! Even though I have been studying this stuff for the past year and I have learned very much in the past months, I still feel like I don't know shit. I am ready to learn and this forum is the best thing I found to do exactly that.

I will also give value back in form of my experiences, journeys and the things I learned a long the way.

I could write 10000 words more but I don't want this post to be too long, so I'll keep it at that. Feel free to ask me anything.

Dreams don't kill anybody. Moreover, you do not just dream but you also work and develop yourself. So keep dreaming and believe in yourself and don't hear those stupid adults who didn't reach anything in their lifes

Thank you for the heads-up guys! Although I am far from hustling as much as I should TBH. I know there is a lot more I can do but I am kinda stuck in analysis-paralysis, especially when it comes to marketing, SEO, growing your audience. It's hard to filter through the bullshit info

That's normal. Accept it as an expectation and move forward.

Welcome aboard, sounds like you've already thrown your hat in the ring a few times and make some headway.

Thank you for your answer MJ!

I know, I have to accept that this fear will always be there and I have to take action regardless. Otherwise I'll always be paralyzed by it and nothing will change.

Thanks again for this awesome forum MJ! I'll update you guys with progress and journey threads in the future!
