Hello, My name is Collin and I'm 20. I've read the Fastlane and Unscripted . The Fastlane change the way I perceive the way people have the wealth that they do. My father owns a Salvage yard and we also have a repair shop. I'm currently a mechanic and I'm very proficient at it, but it's not a job I ever wanted. We needed a mechanic and 4 years later, I'm still there.

I began looking at going to college and get a high paying job, the slowlane dream, but I knew my dad would disown me lol. But I didn't care, I wasn't living on $16/hour. My father isn't wealthy but he's not broke so I knew that ok money wasn't in my future without serious time 10+ years.

So after some searching, I stumbled across the Millionaire Fastlane , and after the first 10 pages, I was hooked. It completely changed my mindset and lead me to where I am now. I've started a website in the auto repair industry, and I need some help on selling it. I don't have very much knowledge to give back, but I know I will in the near future! Thank you!

Our jobs may suck,

However its a perfect source of income to fund fastlane ventures
Its a consistent flow of income with which I can release a new product every month, guaranteed
Its also not really that much time: 40 hours a week leaves you with plenty for business
I have gratitude towards the company for allowing me the opportunity to earn money which can be used for anything - food, housing and fastlane

Sure its not a long term plan by any means, but still have gratitude and realise the amount of potential it gives you.

What kind of website did you start? You already have a good business going on with your dad. The only way you can improve it is by scaling it. Try selling the parts online.

There’s no good way to find a repair shop, especially if you’ve just moved to a new town or are just traveling. So I solved that
My father is not open to ideas, and doesn’t care what I say. He’s a very difficult person to work with let alone try and talk business too. But that is for an entire different thread lol

You can search for the repair you needed, and your vehicle make. A filter results will show you shops that work on your car with the service you need. Highest tier package shops will show a banner that tells you they specialize in your car; say Ford. I plan to advertise heavily via Facebook and Google AdWords. Searching “Auto repair” would bring the site up. To start off with, I want to start local obviously, and expand from there. The limit really would be the nation, but that’s an incredible under taking, as I only have 1 hour of free time durning working business hours; well for EST time business

So how will you make people do a search for those things? It was 4:40pm on a Friday, I quickly did a google search for Honda dealers near me. See, I wouldn't have known to type in the repair needed and the make of my vehicle. So what is the solution to that problem?
