Does anyone know of anything worth over $100 million that can be readily bought and sold for an immediate profit of $100 million. For example, oil tanker worth $$150 million. I buy it at $140 million and sell it immediately for $150 million immediately. As you can see the "thging" must be undervalued for an immediate profit.

If it could be sold immediately for $150m then that's the market rate. Why would the original owner sell it to you for less than market rate? Where is your $10m value add?

This idea isn't Fastlane actually. Did you actually read MJs books?

No. What someone will pay for some assets can vary significantly. The more the market is not efficient the more significant the prices can be. For example, residential real estate has a known market. Prices are within a definite range. However, other assets, like an oil tanker, may vary wildly depending on circumstances.

I do this every week with real estate. Have had a few 6-figure flips. Nothing 7+ yet...

Without any improvements, renovations or anything? Can a business survive on what sounds like the "greater fool" theory?

You can buy my IOU. It’s an NFT - if you wire the $100m, I’ll immediately transfer the NFT worth 10x maybe 1000x because I’m famous. Do we have a deal?

This music catalog is worth $1.5b so if you can get the seller to accept $100m you’ll have a profit of $1.4b

Because this is the Fastlane, no? I'm looking for ideas to make it work. I have access to $100+ million cash to buy the thing, if I can show I will immediately profit.
I would think someone who has access to $100 million in cash wouldn't be asking strangers on the internet how to use it.

Here's a nice one for $40 million.

That's my music catalog! It's still for sale and you never know if it might sell!

Really? I am. I certify that I know one of the richest families in the world. In fact I met them on a public forum. You never know. Always treat everyone like they are the most important in the world.

The jet market is efficient. The Yacht market is less so. Great thinking. I am looking for things that are less known, therefore the greater chance they are undervalued.
Marketing is a value skew. But in order for the business to not rely on greater fool (otherwise violating Control), you'd need to develop a process for finding those less known items, researching them to determine if you can flip them (otherwise violating Need), learning how to market them, negotiating with buyers and finally selling. Hardly "immediate" or "guaranteed", and violates the Time commandment unless you have people doing all that for you.

Now that I've written it, I think you COULD make a Fastlane business surrounding that premise. But of course, the $10-$100m profit when you sell would just be an event, not a process.

I don’t deny anything and try to treat everyone on an equal level.


But as some said, it’s a bit strange you have access to that kind of money yet no actual way of making money. That’s what people are trying to tell you.


Nothing wrong with shooting big, but maybe look a bit lower? You’d be surprised by how many ways money can be made.

Your premise is very good but is incorrect in the real world. You have to realize that just because I have access to such amounts and know influential people doesn't automatically mean that I can just "make" that kind of money. I have a "leg up" for sure, as you may be able to tell, but I'm here just getting possible ideas and sharing them, too.

My billionaire friend would never just pay me for doing "whatever". It has to be something of real value - something that earns money it self by income or one-time profit. Easier said than done BUT quite possible, if you have the know how.

Well I assumed he’d borrow you money to help you out. If not free then for a small commission, even though some might feel is pointless for him. Helping you out.


Wishing you well

Its a wholesale business model. Think about all the used cars that are traded in daily that go to auction once or twice before sold to an end user.

Yes but I need something to buy first. He won't just give me money. I wouldn't take anyway (well, I probably would consider). I want to sell something and make a profit.

I can sell you my business for $100M. I don't know if you could flip it for $110M though, we've done $6 in revenue since I started it 3 weeks ago :^)

I have come across commodity food trades for 100's of millions (think soybean etc), but you have to know the right people.

I bought the entire US arsenal left behind in Afghanistan from the Taliban for $60B; $28B less than the US paid for it before leaving it behind.

I was going to flip it for $100B but unfortunately I lost everything in a horrific boating accident. Simply tragic.

Find industries/markets that pay higher multiples when several 'units' of a business are bundled together.

Buy units at lower multiples.

Bundle units together and sell at higher multiple.

By unit I mean things like discrete business locations or businesses organizations.

Experience dictates the profit. Of course you can get lucky but knowing what you are doing is the driver. The business world is filled with sharks. The goal is to watch their pile of chips grow.
