Hey fastlaners ,

Just a quick intro . I fell out of the fastlaner mentality due to personal issues and passed failed attempts but i'm back with things sorted and ready to kill it! I realized that you cant half a$$ this, if you start on a path you need to narrow your focus and block out the noise. That was my problem i was getting distracted by every new business idea that i would come across.

I tried my hand at (haphazardly) importing and a local service business which could have worked if i had been more dedicated. Skill wise I know a bit of ad words, seo but am mostly a front-end web developer. I know back-end stuff like rails and node but prefer the front-end.

Coming at you from Canada cheers!

Pfft, whatever man.

This is just a scratch!

You know what happens when you fall?

Lol. You get back up and kill it!

The fact that you fell at all just makes your story better, and makes you RESPECT the fact that you have to really fight, fight, FIGHT to win.

You sound talented.

Get back up and kill it.

It's like one of my favorite parts in the first verse of "Lose Yourself": "Back to the lab again"

You had a service business? Nice. To win at that game is simple: JUST $ELL!

I hope you make lots of money, and then hire that cat in your avatar to do your accounting (he looks smart, like he's good with numbers... although it could just be the tie he's wearing).

Nobody worth talking about succeeded without a couple failures first.

If anything it should just give you the fire you need to win this next time around.

Yeah, these distraction. I had that as well last year but I recognized that it's time sucking.

Attention is important. How much you focus on something shows if you gonna get that thing.

Get back on track and eliminate every possible distraction dude :)

Falling is the fun part. It doesn't effect me. I have fallen and failed too many times to count. But I got back up and learned from each.

You got this! Set a plan and DO IT!

Glad to meet you! See you around!
